News: Steelers DL Cameron Heyward recorded the first sack of his career Week 5 against the Titans. He also forced a fumble on the play. The rookie finished with two tackles, both solo.
Analysis: Heyward doesn't start for the Steelers, which means the sacks could be few and far between for him at this stage of his career. He can remain on waivers in Fantasy IDP leagues.
News: A quarter century after "Ironhead'' became a phenomenon in Pittsburgh, a new Heyward is coming to town. The Steelers selected Cameron Heyward with the 31st pick of the NFL Draft. The Ohio State defensive lineman is the son of the late Craig "Ironhead'' Heyward, the former NFL running back. Heyward was born in Pittsburgh, still has plenty of family in the city and spent his early years in the suburbs. Heyward even said he has a Terrible Towel. The 6-foot-5, 288-pound Heyward was a four-year starter with the Buckeyes and an all-Big Ten honoree as a senior, when he had 48 tackles, three sacks and 13 tackles for a loss.
Analysis: Heyward is seen as a good fit because he played in a system at Ohio State that is modeled after the Steelers' 3-4 defense run by veteran defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau. That said, he should fit in right away. And that said, Heyward shouldn't be counted on for big stats. Keep him off of Fantasy rosters since linemen in the 3-4 scheme typically don't post good numbers.
