Found June 17, 2013 on Football Nation:
Markus Wheaton was the third round choice for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Obviously, I want you to wait more than three rounds before picking up Wheaton.Wheaton will grow into being your first or second receiver as the season moves on but the fun thing about him is that he will be a huge sleeper pick!There are so many wide receivers in fantasy football to begin with and there were nine other WRs drafted before Wheaton in the NFL Draft.This is good because people in your league will be looking towards those picks way before they take a look at Wheaton. I think Wheaton may go undrafted in many fantasy football leagues but I suggest you use your last or second-to-last pick on him.If the fact that he's the tenth WR picked up in the NFL Draft is scaring you, then you under-estimate his opportunity with the Steelers. Wheaton will be a Week 1 starter and will only be sharing starting reps with Emmanuel Sanders, Plaxico Burress, and Jericho Cotchery.The No. 1 Steelers' receiver is Anto...

Five Undrafted Free Agents That Have A Chance Of Making The Steelers 2013 Roster

Last season, three undrafted free agents from the 2012 draft class made the Pittsburgh Steelers 53 man roster out of training camp as punter Drew Butler, linebacker Adrian Robinson and safety Robert Golden all beat the odds. This years' undrafted free agent class has a tougher road, in my opinion, but there are five players I think at least have a chance of making the 2013 team...

Steelers RB Isaac Redman Admits Offense Was Uncomfortable With Todd Haley Last Season

It's no secret that the Pittsburgh Steelers offense had a tough time adjusting to then-new offensive coordinator Todd Haley last year and this past week running back Isaac Redman admitted as much in an interview on 93.7 The Fan. Redman did, however, say that things are off to a much better start this year. "Yeah, you can tell it's a better relationship all the way...

Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley Says His Weight Wasn’t An Issue Last Season

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley says he has lost weight during the offseason, but wanted to make it clear during an interview last week with 105.9 The X that his weight had nothing to do with his poor performance last season. "That has nothing to do with the injuries," Woodley said during the final week of offseason practices. "I think what slowed...

Heath Miller Thinks Steelers Tight End Position Is Deep

It's funny how non news can suddenly become big news. According to Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, there's a "strong possibility" Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller won't be ready for the 2013 season opener. Really? Robinson certainly goes out on a limb there and for some reason; this revelation of his resulted in the Steelers trending...

Extend Clark, send Polamalu packing after the season is over

Ryan Clark is entering his twelfth year in the NFL. Clark will soon turn 34 years old. It’ll be interesting to see if Clark continues to play at a high level in 2013. He is also in the last year of his contract with the Steelers. Clark’s safety counterpart Troy Polamalu is starting to see his success in the NFL dwindle away. Polamalu is 32 years old and has faced many injures...

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Shamarko Thomas groomed by veteran safeties

When the Pittsburgh Steelers selected safety Sharmarko Thomas in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, it was clear that he would be groomed to be the heir apparent to take over for Steelers veterans Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu. Clark and Polamalu still have what it takes to be a defensive threat for the Steelers, but even they see the necessity to teach Thomas the tricks of the...

Steelers’ unselfish veterans teach possible replacement

For an NFL Rookie it doesn’t get more intimidating than to have Pittsburgh Steelers future Hall of Fame safety Troy Polamalu diagram a play for you. Shamarko Thomas, a fourth round pick has the luxury of not only Polamalu, but also Ryan Clark to teach him the ropes. According to, the veteran Steelers are happy to finally have a player they can pass their knowledge...

Le’Veon Bell’s playing time will depend on if he can pass protect

Steelers rookie running back Le’Veon Bell is expected to come in this season and make an impact.  But if he can’t pass protect the won’t be seeing the field much. “Around here, if you don’t block, you don’t play,” Dwyer said. Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson explained that’s the way it is in the NFL. “That’s anybody. That’s any running back,” Wilson...

Heath Miller may miss the start of the regular season

Heath Miller is coming off his most productive year in the NFL. With more than 800 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns, Miller is a consistent threat that the Steelers have been able to exploit. He's an all-around tight end that can do a little bit of everything, and most importantly, he just does his job. Miller is also coming off of a torn ACL, MCL and PCL. The injury occurred...

Steelers Tight End Matt Spaeth A Bigger Signing Than Many Think

By Matthew Marczi When the Pittsburgh Steelers elected to re-sign tight end Matt Spaeth after his release following a two-year stint with the Chicago Bears, it seemed that the general reaction to the news was, on the positive end of the spectrum, apathetic. However, the reality is that his return to the team should be received with pleasure, especially in a season in which Pro Bowl...

Fantasy Football Rookie Report: Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell

Last season the biggest problem the Pittsburgh Steelers had on offense was their ability to run the ball.As a team they ranked 26th overall with a group of backs that spent more time injured and complaining than actually proving their value.Now with former Michigan State Spartans standout Le'Veon Bell in camp, this once dominant running team will have a feature back once again...
