Steelers' Xavier Grimble: Catches two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimble caught two passes for 26 yards on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

A 2014 UDFA, Grimble entered training camp as a fringe roster candidate, but with Ladarius Green (ankle) looking increasingly doubtful for the start of the season, Grimble could open the year as Pittsburgh's No. 2 or 3 tight end. The role probably wouldn't come with many snaps or targets, as Jesse James is still clearly ahead of Grimble. The Steelers are also expected to retain blocking specialist David Johnson.

Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Catches just one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward-Bey caught one pass for 14 yards on two targets in Friday's preseason win over the Saints.

Heyward-Bey worked almost strictly with the second-team offense and was outplayed by Sammie Coates, who caught two passes for 66 yards and a touchdown on two targets. Any thoughts of Heyward-Bey pushing for the No. 3 job can be put to rest, as he'll likely work behind both Eli Rogers and Coates, leaving him as the No. 5 wideout. The Steelers might even consider moving on from Heyward-Bey in favor of a younger depth receiver with some upside.

Steelers' Markus Wheaton: Catches two passes for 40 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheaton caught two passes for 40 yards on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

Wheaton and Antonio Brown operated as the outside receivers on the first-team offense, with 2015 UDFA Eli Rogers working out of the slot. Wheaton could get more time in the slot if Sammie Coates overtakes Rogers for the No. 3 job, but for now, it appears the 25-year-old Wheaton will mostly play outside while serving as the clear No. 2 wide receiver. With Le'Veon Bell suspended and Ladarius Green (ankle) looking increasingly doubtful, Wheaton may be heavily targeted early in the season.

Steelers' Fitzgerald Toussaint: Struggles on ground once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint gained eight yards on six carries and 18 yards on two catches (two targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

Toussaint didn't get any touches until the fourth quarter, after Daryl Richardson dominated the third-quarter workload. Richardson failed to pull away in the battle for the No. 3 running back job, gaining just 20 yards on nine carries and four yards on one reception. It's still unclear which player will serve as the top backup to DeAngelo Williams while Le'Veon Bell serves a three-game suspension to start the season. Bell's impending absence does mean that both Toussaint and Richardson could make the final roster.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: Works ahead of Toussaint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson gained 20 yards on nine carries and four yards on one catch (one target) in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

After Le'Veon Bell (suspension) and DeAngelo Williams played the first half, Richardson handled the third quarter and then split work with Fitzgerald Toussaint in the fourth quarter. No clear winner emerged in the battle for the No. 3 running back spot, as Toussaint was also ineffective on the ground, gaining eight yards on six carries and 18 yards on two receptions (two targets). With Bell suspended for the first three games, the Steelers may keep both Toussaint and Richardson on the final roster, extending the audition period through Week 3.
