Bears | Markus Wheaton has good chance to start

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 07:22:46 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton likely has a good chance to start on the outside for the team. The Pittsburgh Steelers used Wheaton in the slot, but he wasn't nearly as productive as he was on the outside.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton's best season came two years ago with a 44-749-5 line, and he won't have the likes of Ben Roethlisberger throwing to him. He's worthy of monitoring as a WR5, but he doesn't provide the upside many others would in that role for your team.

Bears | Evaluating Chicago's WRs

Chicago Bears WRs Cameron Meredith (thumb), Kevin White and Markus Wheaton (shoulder) are considered locks to make the 53-man roster, in the opinion of Chicago Tribune writer Dan Wiederer. WRs Victor Cruz, Kendall Wright, Josh Bellamy, Deonte Thompson and Daniel Braverman are considered to be on the bubble. WRs Tanner Gentry, Rueben Randle and Titus Davis are viewed as long shots for the final roster.

Bears | Markus Wheaton expects to be healthy soon

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 15:49:56 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) said he expects to be fully recovered from his shoulder surgery by April.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton could miss some offseason workouts but should be ready for the start of training camp. He could serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Bears next season but should only be considered as a depth player for owners in deeper leagues.

Bears | Markus Wheaton headed to Chicago

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 15:40:17 -0800

Free-agent WR Markus Wheaton (Steelers) agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears on Thursday, March 9, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton mostly disappointed during his time in Pittsburgh and will be hard-pressed to be anything more than a situational deep threat behind Kevin White and Cameron Meredith. He can be ignored in fantasy.

Steelers | Markus Wheaton may not return

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 14:35:14 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR Markus Wheaton has been shown little interest as far as being re-signed, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Fantasy Tip: One can understand the lack of excitement in the possibility of bringing back Wheaton. He only played in three games in what was supposed to be a breakout year. He's only worth a late-round flier wherever he lands.

Steelers | PIT not expected to re-sign Markus Wheaton

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 18:34:43 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton is not expected to be back with the team next season, "unless he has no other decent offers and returns for minimum salary," according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton will become an unrestricted free agent March 9, but no matter where he lands, he shouldn't even be considered as a potential draft pick in deep leagues. The 26-year-old was limited to just three games this past season due to a shoulder ailment, registering only four receptions for 51 yards. He should get a shot with some other NFL club, though.

Steelers | Markus Wheaton has surgery

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 08:49:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, and recovery time is three months.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton squandered a couple of opportunities the last couple of seasons with key guys out, and his fantasy stock is pretty low for next season. If Martavis Bryant is reinstated, Wheaton may have a tough time making the club.
