Second-year WR Markus Wheaton had a yawner of a preseason, as he caught only five passes for 67 yards and a score. It's an innocuous stat line that has garnered him very little buzz in Fantasyland. To wit, in ESPN leagues, Wheaton currently is averaging out as the No. 53 wideout coming off of draft boards -- 143rd overall.
