Wheaton caught one pass for minus two yards in the Steelers' 38-35 win against the Raiders on Sunday. Wheaton was targeted four times, and dropped a sure touchdown pass, in what was certainly his worst outing of the season. It would appear that he has no fantasy value at this time.
Wheaton (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Wheaton has only thirteen catches on the year and has been less busy since Martavis Bryant returned to action, but he is available if you need him.
Wheaton (ankle) returned to a full practice Friday and is probable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Wheaton's modest production to date limits his fantasy utility to deeper formats, more so now that fellow wideout Martavis Bryant is back in action for the Steelers.
Wheaton (ankle) returned to a limited practice Thursday. We'll have to see if Wheaton draws an official probable or questionable Week 9 injury designation, though at this stage the wideout's modest production limits his value to deeper fantasy formats.
Wheaton (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. With 13 catches for 257 yards and a TD in eight game to date, Wheaton -- whose season-high in catches occurred back in Week 1 -- is off the fantasy radar in most formats, more so with Martavis Bryant (illness) back in the team's wideout mix.
