After their victorious week one, the Steelers are primed to have a few more intriguing fantasy options during their week two matchup with the Broncos

After the Steelers week one win, fans have a quicker turnaround before week two commences against the Broncos. Fantasy players are getting their waiver requests in and the NFL is already gearing up for Thursday. In the upcoming Steelers game, there are plenty of quality starting candidates for Fantasy.

My predictions last week were hit and miss. I called starting Darius Slayton and had the Steelers defense as an obvious start, but James Conner really let me down and disappointed. This week, I hope to rebound and get the picks right. Starting with the obvious starts, if you own Ben Roethlisberger, JuJu Smith-Schuster, the Steelers defense, or Noah Fant, they are must start this week.

Roethlisberger really turned it on against the Giants as the game progressed, and in particular, he and Smith-Schuster built a strong connection. Expect their fantasy connection to continue to be strong. As for the Steelers defense, they were dominant against the Giants, stopping the run and wreaking havoc on the passing offense. Finally, Fant was the go-to option for the Broncos in week one, catching a touchdown to go along with his 87 yards. The former Iowa TE is dynamic and could give the Steelers fits.

That isn’t where the list ends though, as there are plenty of start ‘em and sit ‘em candidates to go around. With that said, here are three start ‘em and four sit ‘em candidates for the Steelers week two matchup against the Broncos.
