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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Huddle Up: Wheaton, a preseason sleeper on some lists, only has 3 catches for 26 yards in 4 games so far and his return could translate into a dip in targets for Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders.

Huddle Up: In case you were counting on Wheaton for Week 6, don't.

Huddle Up: The speedy Wheaton, the Steelers' 3rd-round pick, has yet to log a reception and he'll find it hard to consistently produce given the across-the-board struggles in the team's offense right now.
