What’s going on Steelers fans? Hope you all are having a safe and happy weekend. The Steelers had a rough game last week against Washington, hoping to bounce back this week. As far as fantasy production goes, it was a down game for most of the Steelers except for Diontae, Ebron and Ben. Let’s move on to this week’s matchup on Sunday against Buffalo.
Ben played a just fine game of football last week against a great Washington Defense. Once again there was a huge issue with drops, hopefully, Ben can put up more than 19 points this week against the Bills. I project 22 fantasy points for number 7 this week. The Bills have a below-average passing defense so I project that Ben has a nice bounce-back game.
The Benny Snell and Anthony Mcfarland experiment is over, and boy was it a failure. James Conner comes back on Sunday from the reserve/COVID-19 list. I hope he looks good in his return and looks nice and healthy on the field. The Steelers need a good game from their running back. I project 12.1 points for Conner this week in his return!
Yikes… tough game for everyone not named Diontae for the Steelers this past week. I really hope our boys can bounce back in a big way. One of them similar to last week will get Tre'Davious White in coverage, one of the best in the NFL. I expect Claypool to get locked up again so I project 14.7 for Diontae, 9.8 for JuJu and only 9.5 for Claypool. I really hope they exceed my expectations!
Eric Ebron was one of the fantasy bright spots for the Steelers this past week posting 15.3 points which is a good game for a fantasy tight end these days! I project a slightly worse game for Ebron this week at about 11.2 points against Buffalo.
Good luck this week in all your fantasy games Yinz! Here we go, 12-1! Thanks for reading everybody, and I’ll see you next week!
