Steelers | Markus Wheaton listed as probable

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 11:43:06 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his production and has only caught two touchdowns on the season. Wheaton only costs $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find a better option.

Steelers | Markus Wheaton misses practice

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 15:11:19 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (illness) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: We'd be pretty surprised if Wheaton ($3,000) missed the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. KC has held their own against wide receivers this year, which makes Wheaton a true boom or bust candidate at FantasyScore in Week 16.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant emerges as another WR option

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:48:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant cut into WR Markus Wheaton's workload in Week 7 against the Houston Texans, and QB Ben Roethlisberger took three "shot" plays down the field to Bryant. The team is unsettled at receiver behind WR Antonio Brown, with WRs Wheaton, Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey fighting for targets. It was the first game in which Bryant was active this year.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant had a fine showing on Monday night in his first game this year. However, the second and third options behind Brown are hard to predict right now, making them nothing more than risky flex plays based on matchups.

Steelers | Steelers top skill players probable

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 13:27:19 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury), RB Le'Veon Bell (non-injury), WR Antonio Brown (non-injury), WR Markus Wheaton (non-injury) and TE Heath Miller (non-injury) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, and are listed as probable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: All five players were receiving some time off because of the short week. All will be able to play and could be used in all fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Markus Wheaton earning trust

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 18:05:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton had six catches for 97 yards in Week 1, including a 20-yard catch late in the game that set up the game-winning field goal. QB Ben Roethlisberger said he didn't consider it a gamble to look for Wheaton in the crucial situation.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton appeared to be the clear No. 2 option in the passing game in Week 1, and it looks like Roethlisberger has plenty of trust in the second-year receiver. He will take up 11% of your cap ($5,500) in FantasyScore in Week 2, and he could provide a great return on investment against a Baltimore defense that gave up more than 300 yards through the air in Week 1.

Steelers | Lance Moore won't play

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 13:31:46 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not practice Friday, Sept. 5, and has been ruled out for Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. It'll open up snaps for WRs Justin Brown and/or Martavis Bryant (shoulder), but Bryant is unlikely to play because of a shoulder ailment. That means Brown and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey will likely be used alongside WRs Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton. Browns CB Joe Haden is likely to lock on to Brown for the majority of the game, meaning the other receivers could see good opportunities to make an impact.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton presents an excellent buying opportunity at FantasyScore against the Browns at a price of $3,700 (7.4% of cap) - the basement salary for a wideout.
