ESPN - [Full Article]

Steelers second-year WR Markus Wheaton needed just one game to equal the total number of catches he had last season and well eclipse his total receiving yards in a frustrating rookie campaign.

Wheaton's six catches for 97 yards in a 30-27 win against the Browns didn't just help the Steelers avoid what would have been an epic collapse against one of their archrivals. The production and timely catches he delivered in his first NFL start may also portend big things for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers' passing game.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's just one game but Wheaton is looking like he can put up solid numbers as the team's WR2, something previous players in his position have done with the Steelers. He's a guy to grab off your wire if you're looking for help at the position especially in leagues that play three or more WRs.
