    Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) said Wednesday, Sept. 20, that he is hopeful of making his team debut in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton has been inactive for the first two games due to a broken pinkie, but he is likely to push hard to return to face his former team. The Bears have a mish-mash group of receivers, so Wheaton has opportunity in the Windy City. But for now his fantasy value is rather negligible.

    Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) appears to be a longshot to play in Week 2's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton was a limited participant in the team's three practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Seasonal owners should look for safer options to use this afternoon, while he should be avoided altogether in daily fantasy formats.

    Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) is not active for Week 1's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton participated in pregame drills but the decision was made to hold him out of the season opener. WRs Kevin White and Kendall Wright should see additional targets versus Atlanta but Wheaton has a good chance to play in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 7:12am ET

    Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) is not expected to play in Week 1's game against the Atlanta Falcons, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions. WRs Kevin White and Kendall Wright should see more targets if Wheaton is held out of action.

  • Posted: 8/16/2017 6:20pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (pinkie) recently underwent surgery to repair his broken left pinkie. Head coach John Fox said there is no timetable for Wheaton's return.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton has dealt with injuries during training camp and it is not known when he will return to practice this time. Wheaton could be a late-round flier if he wins the No. 2 receiver job for the Bears.

  • Posted: 8/12/2017 2:42pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (appendix) participated in practice Saturday, Aug. 12.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton was sidelined for a little more than a week after undergoing an appendectomy but should be able to play in a few of the remaining preseason games. Wheaton has a chance to the Bears' No. 3 receiver this season but is only a late-round flier in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/2/2017 12:13pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (appendix) will return to action in two weeks, according to NFL Network's Stacey Dales. Wheaton underwent an appendectomy Sunday, July 30.

    Huddle Up: The Bears' receiving group is somewhat of a crapshoot right now, although Wheaton will need to earn playing time behind Cameron Meredith and Kevin White. Kendall Wright will be in the mix, too, so Wheaton is merely a late-round flier at this point.

  • Posted: 6/22/2017 7:22am ET

    Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton likely has a good chance to start on the outside for the team. The Pittsburgh Steelers used Wheaton in the slot, but he wasn't nearly as productive as he was on the outside.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton's best season came two years ago with a 44-749-5 line, and he won't have the likes of Ben Roethlisberger throwing to him. He's worthy of monitoring as a WR5, but he doesn't provide the upside many others would in that role for your team.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton appears unlikely to play in Week 11, making Eli Rogers a solid flex option against the suspect defense of the Cleveland Browns.

  • Posted: 10/19/2016 8:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) said Wednesday, Oct. 19, that he re-injured his shoulder and does not expect to play until after the bye in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: If Wheaton is expected to be sidelined Eli Rogers and Cobi Hamilton would be called upon to fill the void, but only Rogers is worth a look in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 2:59pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton and Sammie Coates have both missed practice this week. Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell are both due for a plethora of targets, but especially if either Wheaton and/or Coates aren't playing. Keep tabs on their statuses this weekend, but Coates is definitely the better play if both he and Wheaton are active.

  • Posted: 10/11/2016 2:18pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton saw his offensive snaps increase from 36 percent in Week 4 to 64 percent in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: The bad news is that Wheaton only turned that increase into two catches for 19 yards on three targets. Antonio Brown and Sammie Coates are the clear No. 1 and No. 2 wide receivers on the Steelers. Wheaton is playing more because Eli Rogers is sidelined. Wheaton should not be on waivers, but he doesn't deserve a starting spot on fantasy rosters either.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 3:53pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Wheaton missed the first two games of the season but should have a solid role in the passing game in Week 3. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but could stay on the bench if owners have more favorable matchups.
