WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Darrius Heyward-Bey | Free Agent WR

Darrius Heyward-Bey gets one touch in Week 14.

Heyward-Bey had one carry for -7 yards against the Raiders team that drafted him seventh overall in 2009. DHB is a core special-teams contributor for the Steelers, but he's not a reliable fantasy option.

Darrius Heyward-Bey did not catch a pass in Week 13.

Heyward-Bey was targeted on a deep ball to the end zone, but he didn't have much of a chance to come up with it. DHB is mostly a great special-teams contributor for Pittsburgh, so he's not a fantasy option right now. He faces the Raiders team that drafted him No. 7 overall in 2009, though.

Darrius Hayward-Bey catches one pass in Steelers' win.

Heyward-Bey gained nine yards on his one reception against the Panthers, as he caught a pass in the flat that he took for a near-first down. DHB mostly contributes as a great special-teamer, so he's not a fantasy option right now.

Darrius Hayward-Bey doesn't catch a pass in playoff loss.

DHB received one target on a shallow crossing route at the end of the game. He should be back with the Steelers as a big-time contributor on special teams and a good leader for a team that might be too emotional at times.

Darrius Hayward-Bey scores in win over the Browns.

Hayward-Bey rushed once for a 29-yard score on his only touch of the game, which came on a reverse in the first quarter where he broke arm tackles and sprinted to the end zone. He will be a special teams contributor in the postseason for Pittsburgh.

Darrius Heyward-Bey catches long pass against the Bengals.

DHB gained 44 yards on a deep pass, though it came on a fake punt. He doesn't offer fantasy value right now, but it's great to see the former first-rounder accept his role on special teams and be a good teammate while the Steelers compete for a Super Bowl.

DHB catches one pass for six yards in preseason opener.

Darrius Heyward-Bey has been a very good special teams player for the Steelers over the last few years, while also stepping in as a situational deep threat as times.
