Player Outlook

The Steelers kept underachieving receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey despite him totaling 314 yards and two touchdowns on 21 catches last season. While it's likely he'll make the final roster, chances are DHB won't evolve into a relevant Fantasy option. Keep him off rosters.

Player News
  • Heyward-Bey has agreed to a multi-year deal with the Steelers, NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports. Heyward-Bey re-signs with the Steelers after catching 21 passes (on 39 targets) for 314 yards and two touchdowns last season. The speedster's 15 yards per catch also nearly set a career-high, giving Pittsburgh a nice vertical threat to round out their explosive receiving corp.

  • After failing to record a catch last week against Cincinnati, Heyward-Bey had two receptions for 64 yards against Denver on Sunday. Heyward-Bey, who is an unrestricted free agent, finished the regular season catching 21 of 39 targets for 314 yards and two touchdowns. Like Antonio Brown, DHB provides Pittsburgh with another veteran presence at receiver, which can come in handy when playing alongside Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton. But that's where the comparisons end, with Brown having more catches, receiving yards and touchdowns in his last two seasons than Heyward-Bey has in his seven-year career. Still, he could be brought back next season to give the Steelers depth.

  • Heyward-Bey caught 2-of-5 targets for 74 yards in Pittsburgh's win over Cleveland on Sunday. With Martavis Bryant (neck) out of commission by halftime, Heyward-Bey had a larger-than-usual role in the offense, including a game-long and season-long 66-yard reception. Even if Bryant is unable to play in the Steelers' Wild Card game next week, DHB is still the fourth option in the passing game behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Heath Miller.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: No receptions in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Heyward-Bey failed to catch either of the two passes thrown his way in the Steelers' 16-10 loss to the Bengals on Sunday. DHB has now gone three straight games without a reception and just three targets. Even with Ben Roethlisberger (knee) back under center, Heyward-Bey is not worth a spot on fantasy rosters.

  • Heyward-Bey failed to catch his only target in Pittsburgh's 25-13 win over Arizona on Sunday. We expected DHB's production to take a hit with the return of Martavis Bryant. Now, with uncertainty at the Steelers' quarterback position, he becomes an even riskier fantasy play.
