Cam Heyward seeks to improve tackling

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward said bringing a renewed focus to improving tackling during training camp will make the Steelers' rush defense better.

Fantasy Impact

“I think we were last in the league when it came to missed tackles,” Heyward said. “You clean that stuff up, we were already a top-5 defense, it puts us in a better category. You do that, stress it more, [but] by the end of the day guys got to buy in.” Adding more tackles to Heyward's 30 solo tackles in 2017 would be wonderful for owners. The stud defensive lineman also added 12 sacks last year. He is locked in as a DL1.

Cameron Heyward could be sidelined for 2-3 weeks

Steelers DE Cam Heyward is expected to miss 2-3 games after suffering a hamstring injury in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Heyward's loss would be a big blow for the Steelers D/ST in both fantasy and real life, but Pittsburgh will likely be fine without him in Week 6 versus the Dolphins. However, his absence would certainly be felt if he were forced to miss Week 7's showdown at Heinz field against the New England Patriots. If that ends up being the case, Heyward would likely be eyeing a Week 9 return after the Steelers' bye. He currently leads the team with 3 sacks.

Cameron Heyward, Steelers agree to six-year, $59.25 million deal

Cameron Heyward signed a six-year, $59.25 million deal with the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

His 7.5 sacks and 53 tackles in 2014 represent one of the best seasons of his five-year career. He's only 26 and has shown steady improvement over his career, so an average of $9.86 million per year in this new deal seems about right.
