Tribune Review - [Full Article]

The Steelers are convinced they're most effective airing it out. Besides, they have one of the NFL's best receivers in Pro Bowler Antonio Brown.

Brown put up some awe-inspiring numbers: 110 receptions and a franchise single-season best 1,499 receiving yards.

While the spotlight will shine on Brown, there will be plenty attention given his supporting cast. Roethlisberger has spent much of training camp and the preseason adapting to several new faces, including free agent signees Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey, and rookie Martavis Bryant.

Roethlisberger, too, will have a new starter flanked opposite Brown. Markus Wheaton, a second-year receiver who was slowed by a broken finger during his rookie season, seems to have settled in with the offense.

Fantasy Impact:
There still needs to be some balance in the offense with the running game. But if the Steelers are going to air it out, the new WR members will be challenged to duplicate the 2013 efforts of Jerricho Cotchery and Emmanuel Sanders. They combined for 113 receptions, 1,342 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns. We expect Wheaton to put up solid numbers as the Steelers WR2, and could provide some depth to your fantasy team.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Lance Moore takes over as the Steelers’ slot receiver from Jerricho Cotchery. That meant 46 receptions for 602 yards and 10 scores in 2013.

Fantasy Downside
Moore doesn’t have the size of Cotchery, so he’s unlikely to get to 10 touchdowns. Antonio Brown is also the clear-cut No. 1 target in the Pittsburgh offense and there are plenty of other options.

Bottom Line
Moore is going undrafted in many leagues, but he could wind up challenging Markus Wheaton and/or Heath Miller for receptions in Pittsburgh behind Antonio Brown. Just two seasons ago he had 65 catches for 1,041 yards and six scores in New Orleans. He could be a nice guy to stash away as a No. 5 receiver.
