Report: State Attorney doesn't file charges against Pouncey brothers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Miami-Dade Office of the State Attorney has decided Dolphins offensive lineman Mike Pouncey and Steelers offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey will not be charged in connection with an altercation at their birthday party inside Cameo Nightclub this summer, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Miami Beach police investigated claims made by a South Florida man that alleges the brothers assaulted him during the party. Miami Beach police turned over all the information it gathered during the investigation to the state attorney's office, which decided there wasn't enough evidence to file charges.

"This confirms that the previous claim that the brothers were involved was false and fabricated by individuals seeking notoriety and monetary gain," said Jeff Ostrow, personal counsel to the Pounceys.

The Pounceys are still facing a civil lawsuit from the alleged victims.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown not happy with overturned TD
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown took to Twitter to express his frustration after officials overturned his 16-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter Monday against the Texans. The officals ruled his left foot touched the white boundary stripe.

Brown tweeted a photo that appeared to show both of his feet were inbounds. Brown posted a "derogatory remark" with the photo, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Brown said he doesn't regret making the comment and will accept any punishment the NFL might hand out.

"When you’re passionate about something, you speak your mind," Brown said Tuesday night on his radio show on 970 ESPN. “Touchdowns are hard to come by in the NFL. That would have given us a two-touchdown lead and made it harder for [the Texans]."

Prioritizing waiver-wire picks at wide receiver
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg takes a look at the wide receivers most worth adding ahead of this week's games.

The list is headlined by new Seahawks' No. 1 Doug Baldwin (33 percent owned), with Odell Beckham (68 percent) of the Giants, Davante Adams (21 percent) of the Packers, Allen Robinson (34 percent) of the Jaguars and Brandon LaFell (56 percent) of the Patriots rounding out the remainder of the top five.

If you need to drop someone to make room for any pickups this week, he also recommends possibly parting ways with the Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson (81 percent) or the Steelers' Markus Wheaton (35 percent).

Martavis Bryant a threat to Markus Wheaton
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Wide receiver Markus Wheaton didn't impress through the first six weeks of the season, so the Steelers saw fit to give someone else a chance Week 7 against Houston. Active for the first time this season, Martavis Bryant had as productive a day as any pass catcher not named Antonio Brown or Le'Veon Bell, hauling in two passes for 40 yards, including a 35-yarder in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. His five targets were third-most on the team, and no one after him had more than two.

That includes Wheaton, who was among those with two targets, going without a catch. He actually played 48 percent of the Steelers' snaps compared to Bryant's 34 percent, which makes his lack of production even more discouraging. Considering he's been up around 80 percent most of the year, he may be in danger of being overtaken.

Of course, Wheaton probably wouldn't disappear completely, and because Antonio Brown is still the go-to guy in the Steelers passing game, Bryant probably wouldn't have the opportunity for big numbers in his place. But in leagues deep enough that Wheaton is relevant, Bryant is now, too.
