Steelers unveil initial depth chart


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) The Steelers released their initial depth chart on Sunday, just a few days before their first preseason game against the Giants.

At wide receiver, the listed second-year pro Markus Wheaton as the starter opposite of Antonio Brown. Lance Moore is listed as the primary backup to Wheaton, andJustin Brown is the primary backup to Brown.

At running back, the team listed newcomer LeGarrette Blount behind Le'Veon Bell, followed by Dri Archer and Tauren Poole.

Lance Moore can 'probably' take over for Cotchery


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/14/2014) Steelers receivers coach Richard Mann told the official team website that he thinks ex-Saints wideout Lance Moore has a shot to fill the slot for the team, replacing Jerricho Cotchery. 

"What he can do, and from what I've seen so far, he can probably fill the void that we had after losing Jerricho Cotchery," Mann said. "We have a couple of other guys we are looking at (in that role). We might have to jerry-rig a few things to get the blocking aspect of it, but as far as the passing game, I think we are going to be fine."

Moore had caught at least six touchdowns in each of his last three seasons prior to 2013 when he scored just two. Cotchery scored 10 touchdowns last year in that role for Pittsburgh. 


Lance Moore a standout at offseason practices


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Steelers free agent acquisition Lance Moore, who signed a two-year, $3 million contract in March, "stood out as much as any player during offseason practices," reports ESPN.com. The 30-year-old former Saint "proved to be a quick study while learning a new offense, and he could put up big numbers if opposing teams pay too much attention to Pro Bowler Antonio Brown," the report said.

Moore is locked in as the team's No. 3 receiver. As recently as 2012, Moore caught 65 balls for 1,041 yards and six touchdowns.


Haley confident in Steelers receiving corps


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) The Steelers lost Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery this offseason as free agents, but offensive coordinator Todd Haley is confident in his group this year, reports ESPN.

In losing Sanders and Cotchery, the Steelers have to replace 1,342 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, which could be hard to do.

"It's as deep a group as I've been around from top to bottom," Haley said. "I think some guys that are pretty good football players probably won't make the team."

The Steelers have Antonio Brown as their No. 1 option, and Markus Wheaton is penciled in as the other starter. Lance Moore was signed to take Cotchery's role as the No. 3 receiver, and rookie Martavis Bryant is competing with Darrius Heyward-Bey for the No. 4 spot. Justin Brown is also in the mix for a role.


Lance Moore to fill Cotchery's role on and off the field


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley believes veteran receiver Lance Moore will replace Jerricho Cotchery on the field as well as off of it

"He's a guy who has quickly grown on all of us," Haley told the official team website. "I have a good relationship with (Saints coach) Sean Payton, and so I got a lot of good scoop on him. He did a lot of great things for New Orleans. ... He's a smart guy, with a lot of savvy at the position, and even though you might look at him and think 'slot receiver,' he has the ability to play inside or outside. As a real smart player, he's going to understand multiple positions, which gives you a lot of flexibility on game days. Consistent. Dependable. And having lost a guy like Jerricho Cotchery, who was kind of the father figure of that receiver room, you can seamlessly move forward with a guy who will fall into that role, being the most experienced of the bunch."


Steelers choose WR Martavis Bryant in Round 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) With the 118th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected wide receiver Martavis Bryant from Clemson.

Standing at 6-foot-3, 211 pounds, Bryant dazzled at the combine with a 4.42 40-yard time. He had 42 receptions for 828 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013. He will join a crowded receiving group that includes Antonio Brown, Lance Moore, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Lance Moore adjusting to Big Ben's arm strength


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) New Steelers receiver Lance Moore is getting used to catching passes from Ben Roethlisberger, who has a more powerful arm than Drew Brees.

"I would say that Ben has a little bit stronger of an arm, maybe a lot stronger arm,” Moore told ESPN.com. “Just from the last couple of days with him here, that's something that kind of jumps out at me. If you are kind of lazy with your eyes the ball will zoom right past you. That's something that I will have to adjust to. I feel like the quarterback should never really have to adjust to the receiver."

Moore is expected to play mostly in the slot.


Steelers still plan to draft a receiver early


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Despite signing free agent receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, the Steelers "will still take a wide receiver with one of their first three picks" in the draft, reports ESPN.com. Pittsburgh lost Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery in free agency while adding Lance Moore and Heyward-Bey.

The Steelers hope second-year wideout Markus Wheaton takes a big step forward and develops into a starter opposite Antonio Brown.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints have some options at wide receiver


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
