Darrius Heyward-Bey WR PIT 8 Days

Heyward-Bey caught three passes for 54 yards (including a 33-yard TD) in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

The effort should further Heyward-Bey's cause to secure a roster spot, but as long as fellow wideouts Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton are healthy, he's off the fantasy radar in most cases.

Heyward-Bey, who failed to have a reception and was targeted just once in the Steelers' 19-16 preseason win over Buffalo, is on the bubble of making the 53-man roster, as the team is projected to have just five receiver spots, ESPN.cm reports.

Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton, who caught a touchdown in the game, are locks to make the team, with Lance Moore and Justin Brown as back-ups. That leaves Derek Moye, Martavis Bryant, Heyward-Bey and several others in competition for the one available roster spot.

Heyward-Bey (concussion) is among the Steelers who are iffy for Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, ESPN.cm reports.

Free agent Darrius Heyward-Bey will visit the Steelers on Wednesday.

It's Heyward-Bey's first-known visit after his career bottomed out with the Colts last season. Given an opportunity to start, DHB proved as stone handed as ever, catching only 29 passes while committing nine drops. He was one of the league's worst receivers before being relegated to special teams in December. DHB is an adequate blocker and special teamer, but the Steelers will be in major trouble if they're hoping he can contribute on offense.

The Indianapolis Star reports the "odds are stacked heavily against" free agent Darrius Heyward-Bey re-signing with the Colts.

We'd also consider it an extreme long shot. DHB opened the season as the No. 2 receiver opposite Reggie Wayne and held onto the job far longer than he deserved to before being benched for good in Week 14. Heyward-Bey caught just 29 passes for 309 yards and one touchdown on the year, while dropping nine passes. He's our No. 28 free-agent receiver in a top-heavy market.
