The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the New England Patriots Sunday at Gillette Stadium 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 – 35 attempts, 27 completions, 301 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception, 1 rush, 3 yards, 0 touchdowns.
A lot of Roethlisberger’s yards are likely to come in the fourth quarter.
Le’Veon Bell – 15 carries, 78 yards, 1 touchdown, 3 receptions, 27 yards, 0 touchdowns.
A touchdown will allow him to have a decent fantasy day.
Felix Jones – 2 carries, 9 yards, no touchdowns, 1 reception, 6 yards, no touchdowns.
As usual, Jones belongs on your bench.
Jonathan Dwyer – 2 carries, 11 yards, no touchdowns, 0 receptions, 0 yards, no touchdowns.
Dwyer has played a total of 23 snaps in the lastfour games.
Antonio Brown – 7 catches, 99 yards, 0 touchdowns, 1 rush, 9 yards, 0 touchdowns.
Will Aqib Talib play or won’t he? Watch the inactives closely.
Emmanuel Sanders – 6 catches, 72 yards, no touchdowns
Might be a decent number three wide receiver on your fantasy team.
Heath Miller – 5 catches, 55 yards, 1 touchdown
Miller will get his looks against the Patriots. Will he score? I think so.
Jerricho Cotchery – 3 catches, 22 yards, no touchdowns
Cotchery is and has been a third down receiver since he came to Pittsburgh. Don’t expect a big game.
Derek Moye – 1 catch, 11 yards, no touchdowns
Moye won’t see a ton of targets as a fourth receiver.
Will Johnson – 1 catch, 9 yards, no touchdowns
Not much to get excited about here. I really thought he might be used more this season in the passing game.
