Markus Wheaton, WR, Steelers

Position/Rank NFL Team Status Experience Age Height Weight
WR - #67 PIT Probable 2 years 23 5'11 182

2013 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)

Last updated on Oct-21-2013 by Rob Warner

UPDATE (10/21): Wheaton has missed two straight games with a broken finger opening the door for Jerricho Cotchery to have fantasy relevance. Wheaton is a solid dynasty league stash as he should be starting in 2014 if the Steelers let Emmanuel Sanders walk via free agency.

The Steelers got lucky as many viewed Wheaton as a potential late 2nd rounder, but he was still available when Pittsburgh was on the clock at #79. Many at the Senior Bowl were comparing Wheaton to Wallace as they are similar sized (5-11) speedsters. Wheaton hauled in 91 catches for 1,244 yards (13.7 YPR) and 11 touchdowns as a senior at Oregon State. With Sanders in a contract year, Wheaton is a solid dynasty league target as the downfield weapon should be a starting WR by 2014 (if not sooner).
