Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey to be involved?

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 14:43:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey could remain high on the Steelers' depth chart this season, mainly due to his speed. Heyward-Bey has reached up to 25 miles per hour while running this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey is pretty fast and all, but his fantasy value remains minimal, although Martavis Bryant's suspension does increase it somewhat. He should only be drafted as a deep flier in 2016.

Steelers | Antonio Brown torches rookie

Thu, 26 May 2016 18:42:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown beat CB Artie Burns for a pair of touchdowns in the first day of OTAs Thursday, May 26, and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey said he believes a 2,000-yard season is possible for Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is a first-round option in any format, and he should be in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick in PPR leagues.

Steelers | Pitt's No. 2 WR job up for grabs

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 11:45:06 -0700

The Pittsburgh Steelers' No. 2 wide receiver job is up for grabs between WRs Markus Wheaton, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Sammie Coates this year, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Wheaton seems like the favorite for the spot, but Tomlin also sees Coates as a potential breakout candidate in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: With Martavis Bryant suspended for the year, Wheaton's value surely rises in fantasy circles, and he could be a low-end WR2 commodity if he wins the job behind Antonio Brown. Coates is a deep threat who will have more value in standard-scoring formats. Draft him as a WR5 with upside for more.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey back with Steelers

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 10:47:14 -0800

Free-agent WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (Steelers) agreed to terms with the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, March 7, on a three-year deal worth $3.8 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey had a smaller role in the offense this season and finished the season with 314 yards and two touchdowns. Heyward-Bey likely will be used more on special teams next season and should not be an option in most fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey injures knee

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 12:23:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (knee) is questionable to return to Week 9's game against the Oakland Raiders after suffering a knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was targeted twice but had zero catches against his former team and wasn't a great FantasyScore option to begin with this afternoon.

Steelers | DHB, Markus Wheaton do very little

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 16:42:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Darrius Heyward-Bey and Markus Wheaton had little production in Week 3 against the St. Louis Rams. Heyward-Bey had three grabs for 19 yards, while Wheaton had two catches for 16 yards. Both were targeted three times.

Fantasy Tip: DHB ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Wheaton ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) weren't great FantasyScore options to start, but now that Le'Veon Bell is another receiving option back from suspension, and the team is without Ben Roethlisberger for a while, their fantasy appeal has lessened dramatically.

Steelers | Sammie Coates' stock is down

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 20:41:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates is considered to be the No. 5 wide receiver by beat writer Ed Bouchette, behind WRs Darrius Heyward-Bey for the No. 3 wideout job.

Fantasy Tip: Coates, the rookie out of Auburn, is also believed to be behind Tyler Murphy, according to Bouchette. Coates has plenty of upside, but he has a while to go before he makes a splash in fantasy.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey confident

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:34:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey has been playing with a lot of confidence, according to QB Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger said he and Hewyard-Bey have developed somewhat of a rapport with each other since working out in Georgia together. Roethlisberger said he believes Heyward-Bey will step up and play fine when WR Martavis Bryant is suspended.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey's workload should increase during the first four weeks of the season, but he'll probably play sparingly once Bryant returns. Leave him off your fantasy rosters.
