Steelers' Markus Wheaton: Benched in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wheaton's three drops in his season debut Sunday leaves uncertainty around the Steelers' No. 2 wide receiver position, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Wheaton dropped a sure-fire touchdown on the Steelers' opening drive Sunday, and failed to haul in his next couple targets as well, resulting in him being benched in Pittsburgh's lopsided loss. After he was pulled, Sammie Coates, Eli Rogers, Darrius Heyward-Bey, tight end Jesse James and even reserve running back Darryl Richardson were used ahead of Wheaton at receiver, at least until Rogers exited due to a toe injury. Although the Week 4 return of running back Le'Veon Bell should give the Steelers a unique second option to Antonio Brown in the passing game, the team's need for a consistent supplementary wideout was magnified by Wheaton's struggles Sunday.

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Suspension over
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bell will rejoin the Steelers on Monday after serving his three-game suspension, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Bell watched his team go 2-1 in his absence, with veteran DeAngelo Williams rushing for the sixth-most yards (258) in the league along the way. While Bell figures to reclaim the vast majority of the Steelers' backfield workload from Williams, his return from suspension also figures to help Pittsburgh's passing game, where they've lacked a consistent alternative option to star Antonio Brown. In fact, Williams boasts the second-most receptions (14) among his Steelers teammates right now, evidencing the huge upside Bell has in reassuming his lead role this Sunday against the Chiefs.

Steelers' Sean Davis: Leads team with seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had a team-high seven tackles (six solo) in Pittsburgh's 34-3 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

The rookie safety now has 12 tackles on the season, but this was a disappointing effort overall for the defense. For the first time this season, the Steelers failed to force a turnover and, even more troubling, is the fact that they were unable to record a sack for the second time in their first three games, ranking them last in the league with just one sack this season.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: One carry in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson had one carry for one yard in Pittsburgh's 34-3 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

After attempting five rushes on their opening drive, the Steelers' fell behind and were playing catch-up all game. As a result, they only ran five more times the remainder of the game. With Le'Veon Bell (suspension) due to return in Week 4 against Kansas City, Richardson's role will be reduced even further.

Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: No receptions in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Heyward-Bey failed to haul in his only target in Pittsburgh's 34-3 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

Six different Steelers caught a pass, but DHB was not one of them, and he's caught just 1-of-3 targets for seven yards after three games. There doesn't seem to be enough balls to go around in Pittsburgh for Heyward-Bey to be on fantasy rosters.
