Found August 20, 2013 on Juan Elway:
Markus Wheaton is another Steelers rookie WR that could be a hit for the franchise.  They have has exceptional track record with WRs (mulligan: Limas Sweed)and Wheaton is looking like the next guy in line.  He has had a very nice preseason and looks like a possible replacement for Mike Wallace, once Emmanuel Sanders’ contract is up at the end of the year. Tonight he had a big 45 yard catch and finished the night with 3/52.  I think he will get on the field this season sooner, rather than later.  He should be a target in dynasty leagues without a doubt and a guy you need to stash in the back of your head in case he makes the move to the starting lineup.
