Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Cleared of illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward-Bey (illness) was a full participant at the Steelers' practice Thursday.

Heyward-Bey sat out Wednesday's practice with an unspecified illness, but it doesn't appear to have been anything serious. The veteran receiver has received only three offensive snaps this season and will likely seem most of his action on special teams Sunday against the Bears.

Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward-Bey is dealing with an illness and didn't practice Wednesday.

It's unclear if Heyward-Bey is expected to miss any more practice time this week, but he's mostly off the fantasy radar at this point, regardless. The 30-year-old has played 39 snaps through the Steelers' first two games, but all but three have come on special teams.

Heyward-Bey was not targeted in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Heyward-Bey was not targeted in Sunday's win over the Browns. DHB played just one offense snap, putting most of his time in on special teams. Pittsburgh has one of the deepest rosters at the wide receiver position, so Heyward-Bey should not be on anyone's fantasy radar.

Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Lackluster effort Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward-Bey had one catch for four yards in Pittsburgh's 19-15 preseason loss to Indianapolis.

This has not been the best preseason for DHB, who has just two receptions for 10 yards on seven targets. Pittsburgh has several solid receiving options, and Heyward-Bey is not a lock to make the 53-man roster out of camp.

Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Held catchless in championship game loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Heyward-Bey (illness) failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 36-17 AFC championship game loss to the Patriots.

The veteran speedster was targeted deep on the two passes he saw -- including one in the end zone -- but Ben Roethlisberger misfired on both occasions. In relatively desperate need of offense after Le'Veon Bell exited early with a groin injury and with Tom Brady and his receivers hitting on all cylinders, the Steelers still curiously opted to primarily rely on the young and inexperienced trio of Eli Rogers, Cobi Hamilton and Sammie Coates alongside Antonio Brown as the principal wideout options. Heyward-Bey appeared to only receive a handful of snaps despite his play-making ability, a somewhat fitting end to a disappointing 2016 campaign. The former first-round pick tallied the second-lowest reception (six) and yardage (114) totals of his career while appearing in a career-low 10 games. Although he has two seasons remaining on his current contract at a modest yearly cap hit of approximately $1.3 million, Heyward-Bey's status for next season likely hinges on the continued development of Rogers, Hamilton, Coates and DeMarcus Ayers, as well as the potential return of Martavis Bryant (suspension).
