The Steelers are in Buffalo to begin the final month of the season.
The Steelers are pushing for the playoffs, as the last four weeks of the NFL season remain. They are in Buffalo to take on the Bills, who are sitting at 6-6. Pittsburgh needs a win and are hoping that Baltimore loses on Monday in New England – something that could easily take place, and, if it does, Pittsburgh would be atop the AFC North.
The last time the Steelers were in Pittsburgh they escaped with a very narrow victory, and it could be much of the same here. The Buffalo defense is in the top ten against the pass and the run, so they could challenge Pittsburgh’s dynamic offense – however, that offense continues to look different. You know you are starting Ben, Brown and Bell. It’s the Fantasy playoffs. Good luck!
Buffalo is good against tight ends, but Green is a tough matchup in the slot running down the middle of the field. He had a strong game last week and has too much upside not to play. If the Bills put too much focus on Green, it will give Bell and Brown more space to work with.
McCoy has been awesome this year when healthy and he seems to be so. The Bills have the number one rushing attack in the NFL, averaging almost 162 yards a game.
MIGHTS: Tyrod Taylor, Pittsburgh DST
These two plays sort of work off of each other. If you feel the Steelers defense will contain Taylor and his ability to run, then play them. The result will be that he will be forced into sacks and/or interceptions, but hopefully a combination of both. If Taylor can get the best of the Steel defense, then he could run into the end zone for the third straight week.
MISSES: Steeler receivers other than Antonio Brown
Tight end Jesse James could be included in this as well. Now it seems to be the Brown, Bell, and possibly Green show. Any other pass catcher is too hard to predict.
Four games to decide the fate of 2016 left. Go Steelers!
