Summary

Fantasy owners need to note that veteran Darrius Heyward-Bey may be more involved in the Steelers high-powered passing game with Martavis Bryant suspended for the entire 2016 season. Like Bryant, Heyward-Bey is big, fast and capable of taking the top off the defense. Known for dropping too many passes, Heyward-Bey actually wasn't credited with any drops in 2015. He ran 235 routes, was targeted 38 times, hauled in 21 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns last season. He may end up doubling those numbers this year as the Steelers look for targets to take the place of Bryant. Even with increased numbers, we can't see Heyward-Bey as anything more than a WR5 for fantasy purposes. (May 18)
