Steelers | Markus Wheaton listed as starter

Sun, 03 Aug 2014 18:12:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton is listed as one of the starting wide receivers on the team's first depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Wheaton has a solid hold of the starting job at this point and has a good chance entering the season as the starter. Owners could consider selecting Wheaton in the later rounds as a No. 5 wide receiver.

Steelers | Three fighting for No. 5 WR job

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 15:59:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Justin Brown, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Derek Moye are still battling for the No. 5 wide receiver job. WRs Antonio Brown, Lance Moore, Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant hold the top four spots on the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: There isn't a lot of fantasy value to go around after Brown, Wheaton and Moore. Bryant is worthy of a late-round flier in deep leagues, given his size in comparison to the Steelers other receivers, and potential end zone usage. Heyward-Bey should stick with the team, leaving recently-drafted Brown to beat out Moye, who failed to see much playing time in 2013, after breaking camp as an undrafted free agent.
