News: 10 hours agoHeyward secured his lone target for 17 yards and a touchdown during the Steelers' 19-16 win over Atlanta on Sunday.

Spin: Heyward played just 22 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps Sunday but caught the team's only touchdown during the narrow Week 13 win. Although it was encouraging to see the rookie sixth-rounder reach the end zone Sunday, he hasn't been a fantasy-relevant player for most of the year, as he had logged just three catches for 15 yards over his last five games.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Heyward was selected by Pittsburgh in the sixth round of April's draft. He is listed as a tight end, but he's 233 pounds (lightest in this rookie TE class) and is more of a fullback/H-Back prospect. Cameron's little brother racked up 208 carries during his four seasons at Michigan State, but had only one in his new role in 2021. His 1.6 career aDOT (3.8 in 2021) confirms his short-area usage and his pro role is unlikely to allow any fantasy upside, especially with Pat Freiermuth atop the TE depth chart in Pittsburgh.
