Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey injures knee

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 12:23:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (knee) is questionable to return to Week 9's game against the Oakland Raiders after suffering a knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was targeted twice but had zero catches against his former team and wasn't a great FantasyScore option to begin with this afternoon.

Steelers | DHB, Markus Wheaton do very little

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 16:42:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Darrius Heyward-Bey and Markus Wheaton had little production in Week 3 against the St. Louis Rams. Heyward-Bey had three grabs for 19 yards, while Wheaton had two catches for 16 yards. Both were targeted three times.

Fantasy Tip: DHB ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Wheaton ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) weren't great FantasyScore options to start, but now that Le'Veon Bell is another receiving option back from suspension, and the team is without Ben Roethlisberger for a while, their fantasy appeal has lessened dramatically.

Steelers | Sammie Coates' stock is down

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 20:41:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates is considered to be the No. 5 wide receiver by beat writer Ed Bouchette, behind WRs Darrius Heyward-Bey for the No. 3 wideout job.

Fantasy Tip: Coates, the rookie out of Auburn, is also believed to be behind Tyler Murphy, according to Bouchette. Coates has plenty of upside, but he has a while to go before he makes a splash in fantasy.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey confident

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:34:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey has been playing with a lot of confidence, according to QB Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger said he and Hewyard-Bey have developed somewhat of a rapport with each other since working out in Georgia together. Roethlisberger said he believes Heyward-Bey will step up and play fine when WR Martavis Bryant is suspended.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey's workload should increase during the first four weeks of the season, but he'll probably play sparingly once Bryant returns. Leave him off your fantasy rosters.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey with bigger role

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 06:34:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey will have a bigger role with WR Martavis Bryant suspended the first four games.

Fantasy Tip: Sammie Coates will likely be the No. 4 on the depth chart then. DHB's fantasy value is very minimal, but he's in the WR5 conversation.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey may be No. 3 WR

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:38:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey could be the No. 3 wide receiver if WR Martavis Bryant has to sit out the first four weeks of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward-Bey did not have much of a role in the offense last season and received most of his time on special teams. He probably would not receive a lot of targets in the first four games and should not be an option in drafts.
