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.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey in good shape

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 22:01:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey appears to be in good shape for a roster spot, as the team will likely keep six receivers on the 53-man roster. WRs Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Lance Moore, Martavis Bryant, Justin Brown and Heyward-Bey are expected to comprise the group.

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.
