Markus Wheaton Fantasy Analysis

  • Bryant facing 4-game suspension
    Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is facing a 4-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.  Bryant will likely appeal the ban but is unlikely to get it reduced.  He'll miss games against the Patriots, 49ers, Rams and Ravens.  It puts a major dent in the value of a guy many were projecting a breakout season from.  We'd been mostly avoiding Bryant at his 5th-round ADP, but it'll be interesting to see what this does to his price tag.  He's still capable of emerging as a high-upside weekly play over the final 12 games.  Meanwhile, Markus Wheaton is now locked in as Pittsburgh's #2 WR for those first 4 games.  That makes him a sneaky spot-start option for your fantasy squad, especially with RB Le'Veon Bell out the first 2 games.  QB Ben Roethlisberger gets a slight bump down the rankings.

  • Steelers lose Pouncey to broken leg
    Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey broke his fibula in Sunday's preseason game against the Packers.  He'll undergo surgery and is expected to miss at least half of the season.  There's a chance Pouncey misses the entire year, according to insider Ed Bouchette.  Pouncey will be replaced by Cody Wallace, who received negative run and pass-blocking grades from Pro Football Focus in limited action last year.  Pouncey finished 6th among 41 Cs in PFF's 2014 overall grades. This is a significant loss for an offense full of fantasy assets.  We're not knocking any of the Steelers down our rankings yet, but we'll be keeping a close eye on the offense in the 3rd preseason game.  Note that Pouncey missed almost the entire 2013 season, and Pittsburgh ranked 20th in yards and 16th in points.  They vaulted into the top 7 in both with Pouncey back last year.

  • Bryant back at practice Tuesday
    Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (elbow) returned to practice on Tuesday.  He ended up missing about 10 days with the elbow infection.  Bryant can now get back to work pushing Markus Wheaton for the #2 spot on the depth chart.  Both guys will see plenty of playing time in an offense that uses lots of 3-WR sets, but Bryant will have trouble meeting his 5th-round price tag if he doesn't pass Wheaton.

  • Wheaton the Steelers' #2 WR?
    Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger suggested that Markus Wheaton remains the team's #2 WR.  "We're in 2-WRs (sets), he's our #2 and we're asking him to play outside," Big Ben said.  "When we go 3 WRs we ask him to move inside."  Roethlisberger obviously hasn't been reading the clippings on WR Martavis Bryant's impending breakout 2015 season.  Bryant remains a strong bet to out-produce Wheaton this year, but if he truly stays 3rd on the depth chart and isn't an every-down player, he'll struggle for week-to-week consistency.  This will be a situation to keep a close eye on over the next month. Wheaton could end up as a value pick at his ADP is he retains the #2 spot.  Big Ben named Wheaton his team's "breakout player of the year." Full Story
