|Wheaton was the young Steeler receiver that drove the hype machine last offseason. He started off 2014 with a bang, compiling a 6-97 line in the opener. But Wheaton never approached those numbers again and eventually was left in the dust by the break-out of Martavis Bryant. Itís clear from OTAs this season that the Steelers view Wheaton as strictly a slot receiver, allowing Brown and Bryant to man the outsides and soak up the medium and long range targets. With running back LeíVeon Bell, and tight end Heath Miller carrying the routes close to the line of scrimmage, Wheaton is going to be left with a very supplemental role in 2015, and will struggle to be anything more than fringe roster fantasy receiver.
| Martavis Bryant's status for Week 5 in doubt|
Teaked knee may keep Steelers WR on sidelines

|Steelers WR Martavis Bryant tweaked knee in practice Monday, per source. Contrary to other reports, this is why he'll likely be inactive. (Ross Jones on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Bryant's four-game suspension is over but it sounds like the Steelers may keep inactive for Monday's game against the Chargers. If Bryant sits, Markus Wheaton would maintain his role as the No.2 wide receiver.
