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.

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.

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.

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Lance Moore are expected to be the team's top three wideouts, with WR Martavis Bryant likely a lock to also make the roster. That leaves one job open, with WRs Justin Brown, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Derek Moye likely battling it out for the spot.

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Justin Brown and Derek Moye likely are competing for the last wide receiver spot on the final roster. Brown could have an edge if the competition is close because he was a sixth-round draft pick and can return punts.
Wed, 29 May 2013 11:25:08 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton, the team's third-round draft pick, might be the logical choice to replace WR Mike Wallace as the team's deep receiving threat this year. Wheaton ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash before the draft, but he won't be able to work out with the team until he graduates from Oregon State. Fellow rookie WR Justin Brown will compete with Wheaton for playing time this year.
Fantasy Tip: Wheaton could be a nice surprise as a late-round flier in deeper leagues, but remember, Todd Haley's offense isn't expected to stretch the field through the air all that much.
