Not sure if this is directed at me...  but if it is,   I am not taking anything literally or like it's set in stone,   I said in an earlier post maybe what Ben said is true,  maybe it isn't.    All I am saying is that I think Ben's comments regarding  Wheaton were very interesting and ignoring Wheaton as part of the equation in PIT is probably a mistake.

To say it doesn't mean anything at all is far too dismissive I think...   I am not counting on Wheaton to do anything necessarily and am certainly doubtful that he is going to become a 'stud' anytime soon,   but writing him off completely and annointing Bryant as the next greatest thing is just silly...

But yet,  that seems to be what is happening in the fantasy world at large,   Wheaton has almost been left for dead while Bryant's ADP has skyrocked this offseason mostly due to some hype by beatwriters talking about how he has bulked up or how good he has looked at OTA's!    People are drafting Bryant as their #2 or #3 WR in most cases,   when he is not even entrenched as the #2 WR on his own team yet...  

If there is any truth to what Ben said,  there just might be alot of unhappy Bryant owners...   (myself included since I am an owner in several leagues...)

It was directed at you but I wasn't trying to be rude. I am with you that I don't think either will be a stud, I just don't think it matters which player is technically the number 2 and which is the 3. The steelers ran an absorbent amount of 3WR sets last year, and whoever is open will get the ball. I don't think Ben would try to repeatedly force either of them the ball.

laughing That is also part of my argument, Ben is way too focused on force feeding the ball to Antonio Brown!

Any of my fellow Bryant owners who are not at least a little concerned about Wheaton's role and Ben's recent comments are much better at putting the blinders on and ignoring a real threat than I am...

1. I am concerned with Wheatons role in that it bugs me that Pittsburgh could potentially be stubborn enough to let this guy stay the number 2 for "any amount of regular season time" when it's pretty obvious that he is a decent #3 at best. I know you think he offers more than that but he hasn't even flashed it. He has demonstrated that he can be on the field for sure but letting him stand before someone with higher potential is risky in terms of time.

2. Bens comments mean almost zero...all they tell me is that Ben isn't an idiot because that's what he would be if he said anything that didn't comply with the depth chart, didn't sound positive about a teammate and potentially help drive both Wheaton and Bryant to keep working hard. If he had said anything to imply that Wheaton was behind Bryant or should be nervous about Bryant it would have created an issue where there doesn't need to be one AND from where Ben is standing he wants them both to be happy and productive. He literally says anything else to this line of questioning and he is an asshole at least. Like I said earlier, the media is bugging these guys with questions...the players are not seeking this shit out to give us clues to our fantasy fortunes.


As far as the comment about people drafting Bryant as their #3 or whatever...if Pitt wises up or Wheaton so much as misses one week those folks are gonna be very happy. I don't listen to beat writers so what I am saying has zero to do with whomever you have read but from very early on when I looked into this kid I recognized someone that I feel will be much MUCH better than where folks had him last year because everyone was caught with Watkins. As far as the comments about Bryant and Wheaton cannibalizing each other and how AB is the dude...I love AB and remember drafting him elsewhere in the late 5th round of a rookie/FA draft and half the league hadn't even heard his name before but as great as I think he is, I don't think he will be the #1 in Pitt for many years. You say anointing Bryant the next great thing is silly...why is that? I mean you can of course but if he becomes just that, then what?

Obviously I am big on the kid so I'll just say what I see is that with reasonable effort, the Steelers could find themselves back with Antonio Brown as a super kick-ass #2 on their team and their #1 being in our conversations about top5 WRs in fantasy. Shawn comparing him to Torrey Smith is laughable.

Eh what do I know...I remember last year when everyone was laughing at my Jeremy Hill and talking about how awesome Gio was...and everyone downplayed my pain at losing Hill in THE TRADE but here we are and is there anyone still on the Gio bandwagon at this point? Things change fast.

Martavis Bryant is that damn good. Get on board or miss the boat.

The confusion continues:

Quote :
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette expects Markus Wheaton to open the season starting over Martavis Bryant.
Bryant is far-and-away the superior talent, but Ben Roethlisberger is pulling for Wheaton to have a "breakout" year, and by all accounts Wheaton has had a solid training camp. Bryant will remain the big-play specialist, while Wheaton handles slot receiver duties in three-wideout sets. Wheaton's talent remains a question mark, but he's worth a shot at his late-round fantasy ADP.

Seems like Ed is hanging onto Roethlisbergers vanilla comments too but he could very well be right...as a whole I feel NFL coaches are reluctant to make moves like this. I am not wishing it on him but sadly we may need Wheaton to make a stupid mistake or get hurt in order for the reluctancy at the top to move onto the obvious call here.

Personally, I see no downside by going Bryant at number 2 and having Wheaton at number 3 (which he would be great at).

I almost got laughed right out of one of my other leagues last year when I traded my 1st round draft pick for 2 picks in the 4th round to nab Bryant and Moncreif. I just couldn't believe they were both still on the board. I truly believe Bryant is the real deal and if Moncrief can show enough in the preseason or early part of the regular season he can solidify his starting spot as well.


The first round pick that I traded away garnered WR Kevin White for the owner so I can't help but feel like I won that battle.

Those 2 won't sniff what White can do. I wouldn't feel comfortable starting either one.

you have to have vision..... If I were to trade Bryant right now I could get a 1st round pick and most likely a 2nd or 3rd or both for Moncrief... If they both have productive seasons they could be worth multiple 1st round picks.....

I like Bryant, but I think it's a stretch to get a 1st for him right now... Maybe if he has a big year, but not right now...

I wouldn't even give a 4th for Moncreif... He is no starter, at best he is the #4 behind AJ, TY and Dorsett... If the Colts were sold on him, I don't think they would have drafted Dorsett or signed AJ in free agency.

I am not sure how Dorsett is ahead of Moncrief...Dorsett hasn't done anything.  If Dorsett is ahead of Moncrief but Bryant isn't ahead of Wheaton then stupidity is running even more rampant than I thought.

AJ are TY are the unquestioned starting WR's... When the Colts go 3 WR it will be Dorsett in the Slot... In last weeks preseason game with TY out it was Dorsett playing all with the first team offense , not Moncrief.... Until I see differently I don't don't think Moncrief can be considered a starter. If AJ goes down to injury I could see them possibly elevating Moncrief because he is a bigger WR and TY and Dorsett are maybe too similar to be the #1 and #2 together, but if everyone is healthy I think Moncrief is 4th in the pecking order...

Preseason games cannot be trusted too much but I understand your stance. If that is how it's gonna be, then I wish the courageous dink calling things in Indy would amble their ass to Pittsburgh and get on with the obvious change at #2 that needs to take place. #WheatonIsWastingOurTime

Weren't you the one telling me how important the depth chart is when we were discussing the Texans RB spot? Both Dorsett and Moncrief are listed as 2nd teamers behind AJ and TY... But that's where the rub comes into play, who is going to play the slot in 3 wide sets? Obviously that fits Dorsett's style and kind of leaves Moncrief on the outside looking in. It will be interesting to see if the Colts make any changes to the depth chart during the rest of preseason, but right now Dorsett is coming in before Moncrief, like I said, until I see differently...

I said claiming something the depth chart doesn't say is pure speculation at best. Like you said, Dorsett and Moncrief are listed behind behind the other two.....you are choosing to believe Dorsett is #3 based on a preseason game and your belief that he is the better player. I see their status on the depth chart and believe Moncrief will be given dibs ahead of the rookie because he has been there, played well and because I think the Dorsett hype is way out of hand.

I don't believe Dorsett is the better player necessarily (personally I am not a fan), but so far he is clearly being used as the #3 ahead of Moncrief... this is just a plain, simple observable fact... has nothing to do with anything that I think or believe... Like I said, until I see different...

I don't watch the preseason but I think if I were to do so and feel the same way you do, I would need to trade a lot of top players because they just aren't getting the playing time we thought they would. I think some of them are only playing a few snaps per game even.... surprised

What actual NFL coaching staffs thing and want rarely coincides with what fantasy coaches think and want... strange but true...

But if you really think about it objectively, the Colts have showed what they think of Donte Moncrief for the past 6 months, starting with the signing of Duron Carter, then following that up with the signing of Andre Johnson ins free agency and then following that up with drafting Dorsett in the FIRST round of the NFL draft.... None of those decisions are a vote of confidence in favor of Moncrief being the next man up! Watching the preseason games or not, the Colts have been telling us what they think of Moncrief loud and clear for months... and it certainly is not that he is a starter! At least not this year...

Early pre-season games don't mean much with the depth chart. If you want to get a good idea who's ahead of who, you have to look at the final 2 games where its dress rehearsal time for the starters.

Like I said, until I see different... but honestly barring injury to AJ or TY he isn't starting... and I can't see Moncrief getting slot work in 3 wide sets ahead of Dorsett...

But anyways, how about Matavis Bryant?! laughing

I don't think have every down energy left. That spot IMO will be a time share which should give Moncrief plenty of opportunity to get his stats.

Bryant is the real deal baby!!!!!

I would strongly consider taking a deal like that... Is the guy offering a good team or a bad one? If there was a reasonable chance that the pick was top 6 or top 4 I think I would be very tempted! Bryant is a good WR but I don't see him ever being an elite WR1 type of a player, with a top 4 pick you have a shot at an elite player.

Hi Folks,
Bad news for Pittsburgh WR Martavis Bryant.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the following: "Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is facing 4-game suspension for violating Substance Abuse Policy, per league sources. Suspension under appeal."
Full Tweet
The Steelers focus on Markus Wheaton in camp now suddenly makes more sense. Wheaton sees a nice bump here. And Antonio Brown looks like he'll be even more leaned upon if that's possible.
Bottom line, the Wheaton love and buzz that's been building looks like it has real staying power. As Schefter said, the suspension is under appeal and it's possible it'll be reduced. But right now, this looks like bad news for Bryant and an opportunity for Wheaton.

I have not seen it reported yet as to whether this was dope or something he was taking that was against the policies. To me there is a big difference between being a dumb jackass getting high and not doing your due diligence when it comes to supplements and shit.

If he was being a retard getting high that will bother me a lot...I know what this kid could be and was really hoping to see him prove it. If this was an error with supplements than I guess I just have to endure another several weeks til he gets the fuck out there and continues to be better than Mr. Average Wheaton.

I can handle a few weeks but I will be really frustrated if this is stupid weed smoking nonsense.

4 weeks means it's a 2nd violation, right? So doubt this was a mistake with supplements. Not impossible, though.

If that is the case, there is no way his appeal has any chance of being granted to reduce the number of games, nor should it... What is the next step after 4 (for multiple violations)? Is that a whole season or is there an 8 game suspension in there?

This makes me wonder what the Steelers knew and for how long, perhaps this explains the Sammy Coates signing?

In one league I play in with a bunch of industry writers, I have Jordy Nelson, Kelvin Benjamin, and Bryant. No kidding.
