Markus Wheaton caught 5-of-8 targets for 30 yards in the Steelers' Divisional Round loss to the Broncos.
Even while losing his starting job to Martavis Bryant after Bryant's early-season suspension, Wheaton took a step forward as a third-year NFL player, posting a 44-749-5 receiving line as Pittsburgh's slot receiver. Wheaton was widely billed as a deep threat coming out of college, but has settled into the slot for the Steelers. Wheaton's contract year is 2016. Assuming he holds off Sammie Coates for Pittsburgh's third receiver job, Wheaton will be worthy of a late flier in re-draft leagues. Jan 17 - 8:27 PM
