    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton had six catches for 97 yards in Week 1, including a 20-yard reception 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.

    Huddle Up: The Steelers' trust in the second-year wideout is a huge fantasy plus and so were his team-high 7 targets (tied with RB Le'Veon Bell). Don't be surprised if Wheaton moves into solid WR3 territory or WR2 range before long.

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

    Huddle Up: Wheaton, who caught 6 passes for 64 yards as a rookie last season, is running ahead of camp standout Justin Brown, 4th-round pick Martavis Bryant and journeyman Darrius Heyward-Bey, and currently stands as the chief challenger to free-agent acquisition Lance Moore for the Steelers' unofficial No. 2 WR role.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant are expected to compete for the starting split end receiver job during training camp.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton caught only 6 passes for 64 yards as a rookie last season, while Bryant is an untested 4th-round pick out of Clemson so don't expect any 2013 Emmanuel Sanders' figures (67-740-6) from the winner here.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers likely will give WR Markus Wheaton every opportunity to win a starting job during training camp.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton has Mike Wallace-like speed, and with both Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders departing over the previous two offseasons Ben Roethlisberger has a need for a target to step up.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton underwent minor finger surgery this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Steelers have signed FA Lance Moore (Saints), but it's Wheaton -- the team's 3rd-round pick in 2013 -- who is primed to start opposite Antonio Brown after a 6-catch, 64-yard rookie campaign.

  • Posted: 2/11/2014 10:29pm ET

    The Pittsburgh Steelers may be content letting impending free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders walk in free agency with WR Markus Wheaton waiting in the wings to take his starting spot.

    Huddle Up: Sanders hit career highs across the board with 67 receptions for 740 yards and 6 TDs in 2013, and Wheaton -- a 2013 3rd-round pick out of Oregon State -- is still somewhat of an unknown quantity after logging only 6 catches for 64 yards as a rookie. In other words, fantasy GMs will have to draft Wheaton on his potential rather than production if he does indeed step in for Sanders.
