The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Baltimore Ravens Sunday at Heinz Field and below are my fantasy football stat projections for the black and gold offensive players for this week.
Feel free to add your own projections in the comments below.
Ben Roethlisberger – 34 attempts, 24 completions, 301 yards, 1 touchdowns, 1 interception, 2 rush, 8 yards, 0 touchdowns.
If the run game shows a little life, Roethlisberger should be able to work the middle of the field. In addition, he should be good for two deep balls in this game. Red zone touchdown pass this week mixed in with a tipped pass interception on the Ravens side of the field
Le’Veon Bell – 18 carries, 82 yards, 1 touchdown, 3 receptions, 20 yards, 0 touchdowns.
The Ravens can be run on up the middle and that is where Bell must hit one or two. In addition, expect him to catch a few balls out of the backfield as well.
Felix Jones – 3 carries, 12 yards, no touchdowns, 0 receptions, 0 yards, no touchdowns.
Just enough work for Jones to spell Bell.
Jonathan Dwyer – 3 carries, 13 yards, no touchdowns, 0 receptions, 0 yards, no touchdowns.
Ditto with Dwyer, who figures to see a little third down work in this game as a pass protector.
Antonio Brown – 6 catches, 94 yards, 0 touchdowns, 1 rush, 5 yards, 0 touchdowns.
Brown is hot right now and while he might not crack 100 yards, he should catch at least six or more passes.
Emmanuel Sanders – 5 catches, 71 yards, no touchdowns
Sanders should see a lot of single coverage and he might be able to wiggle free for another explosive play like he did last week.
Jerricho Cotchery – 3 catches, 29 yards, no touchdowns
Cotchery was shut out last week, but that won’t happen two weeks in a row.
Derek Moye – 1 catch, 8 yards, no touchdowns
Mark it down, Moye will have at least one big catch in this game and possibly even two.
Heath Miller – 4 catches, 62 yards, 1 touchdown
Miller gets his first touchdown catch of the season Sunday against the Jets.
Will Johnson – 1 catch, 10 yards, no touchdowns
He will get his token dump off, but I really would like to see him targeted more.
