Wheaton has struggled to stay involved in the Steelers' passing game this season, only cracking 50 yards five times.
Wheaton will look to build off this performance next week against the Bengals.

A poor performance by the
One and all will try to do better when Pittsburgh plays at Tennessee next Monday night.
Perhaps you've heard of him, but probably not. After all, he wasn't on the other end of one of Roethlisberger's six touchdown passes.
The point is Roethlisberger's back-to-back six-touchdown games are making Wheaton look better than he is. He had two catches on four targets in this one and got only 56 of Roethlisberger's 522 yards in Week 8. But because he had a touchdown in both games, he's one of the most viewed players in Fantasy right now.
Unless you think this is the new normal for Roethlisberger and not another of the many teases throughout his career -- from the two four-touchdown games last year to the 15 touchdowns in a seven-game span in 2012 to the five-touchdown game in 2011 to the 11 touchdowns in a three-game span way back in 2007 -- Wheaton may soon find himself without the touchdowns and with nothing more to fall back on.
I mean, with all the passes thrown Antonio Brown's way and the recent emergence of Martavis Bryant, it's not like he's moving up in the pecking order.
