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

EDGE Analysis

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.

Heyward-Bey had one reception for seven yards in Pittsburgh's 24-16 win over Cincinnati Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The Bengals defense limited Ben Roethlisberger to just eight completions to wide receivers all game. Then again, DHB had just 21 receptions last season, so expectations should be tempered regardless of who the Steelers face.

With Markus Wheaton (shoulder) unable to play Monday, Heyward-Bey is slotted to function as the Steelers' No. 3 receiver for the season opener, Chris Adamski of triblive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the news of Markus Wheaton's game status lifted to out, Heyward-Bey's fantasy stock may have just reached its peak for 2016. The 29-year-old veteran will surely benefit from having a top-10 fantasy quarterback slinging him the ball. Factoring in the absences of Le'Veon Bell, Martavis Bryant and Wheaton, Pittsburgh is likely to look for another option on offense besides Antonio Brown. He will certainly have the opportunity Monday, but whether or not Heyward-Bey is able to step into a bigger role remains to be seen.

Heyward-Bey caught one pass for 14 yards on two targets in Friday's preseason win over the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward-Bey worked almost strictly with the second-team offense and was outplayed by Sammie Coates, who caught two passes for 66 yards and a touchdown on two targets. Any thoughts of Heyward-Bey pushing for the No. 3 job can be put to rest, as he'll likely work behind both Eli Rogers and Coates, leaving him as the No. 5 wideout. The Steelers might even consider moving on from Heyward-Bey in favor of a younger depth receiver with some upside.

Heyward-Bey totaled 29 yards and a touchdown on his sole catch in Friday's 30-17 preseason loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

The former first-rounder capped off a six-play, 75-yard second-quarter scoring drive with a 29-yard touchdown from Landry Jones for his only catch of the night. Heyward-Bey was serviceable in his second Steelers campaign last season, totaling 314 yards and a pair of scores on 21 catches. He's expected to play an important complementary downfield role again in 2016 as the team copes with the season-long absence of Martavis Bryant (suspension).

Heyward-Bey has agreed to a multi-year deal with the Steelers, NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward-Bey re-signs with the Steelers after catching 21 passes (on 39 targets) for 314 yards and two touchdowns last season. The speedster's 15 yards per catch also nearly set a career-high, giving Pittsburgh a nice vertical threat to round out their explosive receiving corp.

After failing to record a catch last week against Cincinnati, Heyward-Bey had two receptions for 64 yards against Denver on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward-Bey, who is an unrestricted free agent, finished the regular season catching 21 of 39 targets for 314 yards and two touchdowns. Like Antonio Brown, DHB provides Pittsburgh with another veteran presence at receiver, which can come in handy when playing alongside Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton. But that's where the comparisons end, with Brown having more catches, receiving yards and touchdowns in his last two seasons than Heyward-Bey has in his seven-year career. Still, he could be brought back next season to give the Steelers depth.

Heyward-Bey caught 2-of-5 targets for 74 yards in Pittsburgh's win over Cleveland on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

With Martavis Bryant (neck) out of commission by halftime, Heyward-Bey had a larger-than-usual role in the offense, including a game-long and season-long 66-yard reception. Even if Bryant is unable to play in the Steelers' Wild Card game next week, DHB is still the fourth option in the passing game behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Heath Miller.

Heyward-Bey failed to catch either of the two passes thrown his way in the Steelers' 16-10 loss to the Bengals on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

DHB has now gone three straight games without a reception and just three targets. Even with Ben Roethlisberger (knee) back under center, Heyward-Bey is not worth a spot on fantasy rosters.

Heyward-Bey failed to catch his only target in Pittsburgh's 25-13 win over Arizona on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

We expected DHB's production to take a hit with the return of Martavis Bryant. Now, with uncertainty at the Steelers' quarterback position, he becomes an even riskier fantasy play.
