Trio of Steelers make strong contributions to Sunday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

As usual, no Steelers receiver could match what Antonio Brown produced Sunday against Atlanta. But a trio certainly helped the team to victory.

The best of the bunch were tight end Heath Miller, whose 26-yard snag late in the third quarter helped him finish with 68 yards on four receptions, and wideout Markus Wheaton, who made good on all five targets for 66 yards. Martavis Bryant pitched in with three catches for 31 yards.

Steelers' Markus Wheaton gets more involved in loss to Saints
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton bounced back from a sluggish performance last week with five catches for 61 yards on sunday against the Saints. 

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.

Steelers get offensive contributions in comeback win
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Steelers got several contributions in their 27-24 win at Tennessee on Monday night. Among them, receiver Lance Moore made a 15-yard catch, wideout Markus Wheaton caught one of five targets for 6 yards and running back Dri Archer had one reception for minus-5 yards.

They're all on a bye Week 12.

Bit players do only a bit for Steelers in Sunday defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A poor performance by the Steelers offense Sunday filtered down to their bit players. Among them was running back LeGarrette Blount, whose five carries amounted to zero yards.

Markus Wheaton did catch four passes for 41 yards while tight end Heath Miller, who was blanked in the first half, added three for 29 yards. Lance Moore caught two for 28 yards.

One and all will try to do better when Pittsburgh plays at Tennessee next Monday night.

Touchdowns the only good for Markus Wheaton
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger setting passing records Week 9 against Baltimore, wide receiver Markus Wheaton managed just two catches. He was targeted four times, or as often as the Eagles' Josh Huff in another game a world away.

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.
