  • Martavis Bryant WR - PIT Making his NFL debut, Bryant caught two... 12:30 am   10/21/14

    Making his NFL debut, Bryant caught two passes for 40 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Monday's 30-23 win over the Texans.

    Impacts: The first catch of Bryant's career went for a 35-yard touchdown, and while he didn't do much the rest of the night, he did finish third on the team in targets. According to Nathan Jahnke of Pro Football Focus, Bryant and Lance Moore each played 24 snaps, while Markus Wheaton logged 31 and Darrius Heyward-Bey just 21. The team's use of a four-man rotation behind Antonio Brown was surprising, but it makes sense given that Wheaton, Moore, Justin Brown and Heyward-Bey have all struggled. Though he is 6-4 with excellent speed, Bryant lasted until the fourth round of May's draft, following a mediocre college career with a Clemson program that was loaded at wide receiver. Bryant made his case for more snaps Monday night, but it may still be hard to get a read on his role entering a Week 8 matchup against the Colts.
