Cortez Allen: Released by Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) has been released by the Steelers.

Allen missed all of last season after suffering a knee injury in Week 1, but his release also comes after he signed a lucrative four-year extension with Pittsburgh in 2014. Now a free agent, Allen's absence further ensures the Steelers will address the cornerback position through the draft.

Steelers' Cortez Allen: Played just one game this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) finished the season on injured reserve.

Allen played in just one game this season, totaling six tackles (three solo) in Week 1. Assuming he is healthy next season, he may find himself behind William Gay and Antwon Blake, who is an unrestricted free agent, on the depth chart, which would limit his fantasy value in IDP formats.

Steelers' Cortez Allen: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Ralph Paulk of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Allen hasn't been able to play since Week 1, so his questionable status is certainly an improvement over previous weeks. That being said, Allen will likely fill-in as a third or fourth corner back if he plays, so his fantasy value will likely be limited in IDP leagues until he can regain a starting role.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers after being limited in practice for a second straight day on Friday, according to Steelers.com.

Brandon Boykin, who did not play a single down in Week 1 against the Patriots, is the likely replacement for Allen if he is unable to go. Given the poor showing of Pittsburgh's secondary against New England, Boykin may take some snaps away from Allen even if he is able to play.
