Cam Heyward has been a cornerstone for the Steelers defense since becoming a starter in 2013 and has been a fantasy contributor since that time as well. Early in his career, Heyward could be counted on for tackle totals in the 35 solo range and 5-7 sacks. Then, unexpectedly in 2107, he recorded his normal 30 tackles but exploded for a dozen sacks. In 2019 Heyward had his most fantasy productive season with a career-best 50 tackles, 32 assists, and 9 sacks, landing among the top-5 in many formats. Both the 12 sacks in 2017 and the big tackle totals from 2019 are career outliers at this point. Heyward took a step back in 2020, returning to what has been the norm of 30 tackles over most of his career, but it is the slump to four in the sack column that brings out the red flags. At age 32, Heyward should still have a few good years left but he has played a lot of football over his career and it might be starting to show a little.
