Heyward-Bey returned to Sunday's game against the Colts after injuring his foot, Burt Lauten of the Steelers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward-Bey was only out for a series before he was deemed healthy enough to get into the game. He'll return to his role as a depth receiver with special teams upside.

Heyward-Bey injured his left foot Sunday against the Colts and is questionable to return, Burt Lauten of the Steelers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward-Bey plays a bulk of his snaps on special teams, so fantasy owners likely won't notice his absence. However, with Justin Hunter also inactive Sunday, the Steelers are down to just four healthy wideouts.

Heyward-Bey caught his only target for 44 yards during Sunday's 29-14 victory over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

The pass, thrown by Robert Golden on a fake punt, was DHB's first target of the year so, unless Golden takes over at quarterback for Ben Roethlisberger, there is no reason to consider adding Heyward-Bey to your fantasy roster.

Heyward-Bey ran once for three yards in Pittsburgh's 26-9 win over Baltimore on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran receiver still has no receiving targets through four games this season, and serves almost exclusively as a special teams player. If he is on your roster, feel free to cut him loose.

Heyward-Bey (illness) was a full participant at the Steelers' practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward-Bey sat out Wednesday's practice with an unspecified illness, but it doesn't appear to have been too serious. The veteran receiver has received only three offensive snaps this season and will likely continue as a special teams-oriented player against the Bears on Sunday.

Heyward-Bey is dealing with an illness and did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear if Heyward-Bey is expected to miss any more practice this week, but he his mostly off the fantasy radar at this point, regardless. The 30-year-old is mostly relegated to special teams, as he saw only two offensive snaps Sunday after registering a single snap on offense Week 1.

Heyward-Bey was not targeted in Sunday's win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward-Bey was not targeted in Sunday's win over the Browns.

DHB played just one offense snap, putting most of his time in on special teams. Pittsburgh has one of the deepest rosters at the wide receiver position, so Heyward-Bey should not be on anyone's fantasy radar.

Heyward-Bey had one catch for four yards in Pittsburgh's 19-15 loss to Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

This has not been the best preseason for DHB, who has just two receptions for 10 yards on seven targets. Pittsburgh has several solid receiving options, and Heyward-Bey is not a lock to make the 53-man roster out of camp.

Heyward-Bey (illness) failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 36-17 AFC championship game loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran speedster was targeted deep on the two passes he saw -- including one in the end zone -- but Ben Roethlisberger misfired on both occasions. In relatively desperate need of offense after Le'Veon Bell exited early with a groin injury and with Tom Brady and his receivers hitting on all cylinders, the Steelers still curiously opted to primarily rely on the young and inexperienced trio of Eli Rogers, Cobi Hamilton and Sammie Coates alongside Antonio Brown as the principal wideout options. Heyward-Bey appeared to only receive a handful of snaps despite his play-making ability, a strangely fitting end to a disappointing 2016 campaign. The former first-round pick tallied the second-lowest reception (six) and yardage (114) totals of his career while appearing in a career-low 10 games. Although he has two seasons remaining on his current contract at a modest yearly cap hit of approximately $1.3 million, Heyward-Bey's status for next season likely hinges on the continued development of Rogers, Hamilton, Coates and DeMarcus Ayers, as well as the potential return of Martavis Bryant (suspension).

Heyward-Bey (illness) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Heyward-Bey is in line to be available Sunday against the Patriots, but given that he has yet to catch a pass in either of the Steelers' postseason games to date, the veteran speedster is off the fantasy radar in postseason formats.
