Steelers CB Ike Taylor will be out indefinitely after breaking his forearm in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.
It's bad news for matchup-savvy fantasy owners as Taylor is a weekly target. Last year, he was PFF's No. 98 corner out of 110 qualifiers. Look for Taylor to head to short-term injured reserve and William Gay to take over at right corner in the meantime. Gay was PFF's No. 9 corner last season
Jason Avant had two catches for 12 yards in Week 3.
Even with Jerricho Cotchery sidelined, Avant continued to play a minor role in the passing game. He secured just two of his six targets. Avant remains off the fantasy radar.
Philly Brown caught seven passes for 66 yards in Week 3 against the Steelers.
Brown started in place of Jerricho Cotchery, with Jason Avant playing the slot in three-wide sets. He finished behind only Kelvin Benjamin with nine targets. Brown had a strong game offensively, but lost a fumble on a punt return in the fourth quarter that was recovered for a touchdown. He'll be relegated to the Panthers' No. 4 receiver when Cotchery returns.
Heath Miller had four catches for 51 yards in Week 3 against the Panthers.
Miller was overthrown by Ben Roethlisberger on his lone red-zone target. He has 11 catches for 112 yards through three games. Miller will look to exploit a Bucs defense that struggles to cover tight ends in Week 4.
Greg Olsen secured 5-of-7 targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 3 loss to the Steelers.
Olsen beat Steelers CB Cortez Allen for a 37-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. He had just two catches for 10 yards at half, and did the majority of his damage with the Panthers playing from behind. Olsen will continue to be a mid-end TE1 in a matchup against the Ravens in Week 4.
Markus Wheaton had four catches for 35 yards in Sunday night's win over the Panthers.
Wheaton had a touchdown overturned in the first quarter, but it was an otherwise quiet night. He was targeted just five times. The Steelers ran for over 260 yards and didn't need their pass game. Wheaton remains a high-upside WR4.
Kelvin Benjamin caught 11 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 3 loss to the Steelers.
With Jerricho Cotchery sidelined, Benjamin had a team-high 11 targets. His touchdown came on a 35-yard pass from Derek Anderson late in the fourth quarter. Benjamin just missed coming down with a 20-yard touchdown in the first half, or he would have had an even bigger game. He continues to impress with his ability to make catches in traffic and is already one of the best red-zone receivers. Benjamin now has 19 catches, 253 yards, and two touchdowns through three games.
Antonio Brown had 10 catches for 90 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.
Both of his touchdowns came on seven-yard throws from Ben Roethlisberger. Brown also had a highlight over-the-shoulder 30-yard catch on third down in the second quarter. It's the 19th straight game Brown has had at least five receptions. Brown will remain a must-start WR1 against the Bucs in Week 4.
