Steelers | Two receivers on bubble?

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 16:35:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey are on the fringe for the 53-man roster. These two are among several receivers fighting for the final two spots.

Fantasy Tip: Even if one or both were to make the roster, WR Antonio Brown is back and healthy enough to push them down the depth chart. Don't plan on either having much fantasy value unless more injuries were to occur.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey might return Week 16

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 14:44:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) has begun running full speed in a straight line and might return from injury in the team's Week 16 game Sunday, Dec. 25, versus the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Oddly enough, Heyward-Bey hasn't played since the last time the Steelers squared off with the Ravens back in Week 9, and even then, he wasn't a factor, recording zero catches on two targets. He's just way too inconsistent to plug into starting lineups, having only produced one game this season in which he logged more than one reception. As a result, he doesn't deserve consideration for this weekend regardless of whether or not he plays.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey likely out Week 15

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 09:51:46 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) appears unlikely to return from his five-game absence due to a sprained foot in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers are thin at receiver and probably wouldn't mind a field-stretcher like Heyward-Bey, although tight end Ladarius Green has given them a bit of that recently. Otherwise, DHB is a special-teams player with very little fantasy value.

Steelers | DHB eyeing return to practice this week

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 09:34:42 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) may be able to return to practice this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: DHB is a field-stretcher and valuable special-teamer when healthy but offers virtually nothing in fantasy, outside of the occasional and unpredictable huge blow-up game. He can be left on waivers whenever he is cleared to return.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey not at practice

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 16:52:57 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Nov. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey has missed the last two contests, and it appears his absence will extend another week, with Pittsburgh set to play on Thanksgiving night. Eli Rogers has been the biggest beneficiary with Heyward-Bey sidelined, but he's more of a weapon for PPR leagues than standard ones.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey misses practice

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 15:08:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 21. The Steelers did not practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey likely will not play in Week 12 since this is a short week, so owners in all leagues should avoid him. Eli Rogers has received a bigger role in the passing game over the last few weeks but should only be a desperation flex option in deeper leagues.

Steelers | Trio of Steelers out in Week 10

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 12:25:24 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Markus Wheaton (shoulder), Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) and RB DeAngelo Williams (knee) have been ruled out for the team's Week 10 game Sunday, Nov. 13, against the Dallas Cowboys. All three sat out practice Friday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The absence of Wheaton and Bey allows the likes of Sammie Coates, Eli Rogers and Jesse James to remain relevant in deeper fantasy leagues. Ladarius Green could also benefit if he makes his return this weekend. Meanwhile, with Williams out, Fitzgerald Toussaint will fill in as the backup, but is a longshot to produce anything of note behind Le'Veon Bell.

Steelers | No timetable for Darrius Heyward-Bey

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 21:29:19 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) is dealing with a mid-foot sprain, and the team is waiting for swelling to subside before a timetable is determined for his return. He is likely to sit out in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: If DHB is sidelined in Week 10, Sammie Coates and Eli Rogers are likely to pick up a few more targets. Coates is especially attractive as a flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey sits out

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 14:13:28 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for Heyward-Bey's return, so there is a good chance that he will miss this week's game. Sammie Coates and Eli Rogers could receive more targets and could be flex options in deeper leagues.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey has sprained foot

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 10:04:01 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) is dealing with a sprained foot, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: When his hands haven't failed him in years past, his health typically has. DHB recently passed Markus Wheaton on the depth chart, but it is a fair bet Heyward-Bey will miss at least a week or two with this injury. Sammie Coates, Wheaton and Eli Rogers will all continue to fight for targets opposite Antonio Brown and will be difficult to trust in fantasy for the foreseeable future.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey earns promotion

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 09:02:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey is listed as a starter on the team's latest depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: He moves ahead of Markus Wheaton, who has missed the last two games - and four of seven in total this season - due to injury but is expected to return this week. DHB has always possessed big-play potential, but his hands have typically let him down. Heyward-Bey is worth an add in deeper leagues this week based solely on the explosiveness of the offense he plays in, but his inconsistency makes him a very risky start.

Steelers | One touch, one score for DHB

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 20:18:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey was targeted twice in the Week 6 game against the Miami Dolphins, but he had no receptions. He made up for it with his feet, running 60 yards for a touchdown on his only carry of the game.

Fantasy Tip: The big scoring play was nice, but he does not touch the ball enough to warrant fantasy usage in most formats.

Steelers | Markus Wheaton will share snaps

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 09:16:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) is set to return from a sprained right shoulder in Week 3 versus the Philadelphia Eagles, but he will do so in a timeshare with Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Fantasy Tip: It's impossible to know at this point whether the Steelers plan on making this a permanent arrangement or are only trying to bring him back slowly, but what is clear is that Wheaton is no more than a low-end flex for the time being. He is certainly still worth a bench spot and could move into the WR3 discussion as the year progresses.

Steelers | Two Steelers WRs expected to share time

Sat, 10 Sep 2016 12:30:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey likely will share playing time at outside receiver in Week 1 since WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) has been ruled out. WR Eli Rogers will be the slot receiver.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how Coates and Heyward-Bey will be used, but they probably will not receive a lot of targets during the game and can be avoided in most leagues. Rogers should be more involved in the passing game and could be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues.

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.
