Steelers working on Darrius Heyward-Bey's confidence
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Steelers receivers coach Richard Mann told the official team website that he's focused on getting Darrius Heyward-Bey to feel better about his game heading into the season. Heyward-Bey has posted one decent season since being taken seventh overall by the Raiders in 2009. He's competing for playing time with the Steelers this summer. 

"What we are doing with him is just trying to get his confidence up," Mann said. "He has speed. He has talent. We'll teach him what to do, and hopefully we can put him in a position to succeed with his speed and intelligence. We will take advantage of what he does best."

Haley confident in Steelers receiving corps
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Steelers lost Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery this offseason as free agents, but offensive coordinator Todd Haley is confident in his group this year, reports ESPN.

In losing Sanders and Cotchery, the Steelers have to replace 1,342 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, which could be hard to do.

"It's as deep a group as I've been around from top to bottom," Haley said. "I think some guys that are pretty good football players probably won't make the team."

The Steelers have Antonio Brown as their No. 1 option, and Markus Wheaton is penciled in as the other starter. Lance Moore was signed to take Cotchery's role as the No. 3 receiver, and rookie Martavis Bryant is competing with Darrius Heyward-Bey for the No. 4 spot. Justin Brown is also in the mix for a role.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With the 118th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected wide receiver Martavis Bryant from Clemson.

Standing at 6-foot-3, 211 pounds, Bryant dazzled at the combine with a 4.42 40-yard time. He had 42 receptions for 828 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013. He will join a crowded receiving group that includes Antonio Brown, Lance Moore, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Steelers still plan to draft a receiver early
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Despite signing free agent receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, the Steelers "will still take a wide receiver with one of their first three picks" in the draft, reports ESPN.com. Pittsburgh lost Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery in free agency while adding Lance Moore and Heyward-Bey.

The Steelers hope second-year wideout Markus Wheaton takes a big step forward and develops into a starter opposite Antonio Brown.
