Steelers | Markus Wheaton placed on IR

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 11:22:29 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Eli Rogers and Ladarius Green should have bigger roles in the passing game with Wheaton out for the rest of the season. Rogers could be a flex option in deeper leagues but probably does not have a lot of value in standard leagues. Green could be a low-end No. 1 tight end against favorable matchups.

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 17:24:10 -0800

Steelers | Markus Wheaton does not practice

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 13:26:06 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton is receiving a second opinion on his injury shoulder, so it appears like he is a longshot to play in Week 11. He can be avoided in all leagues even if he is healthy in the near future. Eli Rogers probably will be the more involved in the passing game and can be a flex option in some fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Markus Wheaton will see specialist

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 12:16:19 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) will visit a specialist for his shoulder injury, an injury that Wheaton hopes will not end his season.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton has been a disappointment for the Steelers this year even before the injury. It's hard to find a reason not to drop him.

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.

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 08:56:48 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton has been declared inactive for the team's Week 9 game.

Fantasy Tip: Darrius Heyward-Bey has moved ahead of Wheaton on the depth chart and should be part of the passing game against the Baltimore Ravens. Heyward-Bey is not a great fantasy option and should be avoided in all leagues.
