Fantasy Football: Which Steelers to start/sit in Week 10 vs. Bills

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

It's a good day for the Steelers' receivers in a match-up against Buffalo's less-than-stellar secondary, but what about Pittsburgh's defense?

Start

Ben Roethlisberger - Buffalo has a strong all-around defense in terms of talent, particularly in their front seven, but their secondary has been porous against the big play. Turnovers have plagued Roethlisberger in multiple games this year, but from a Fantasy prospective, he's had some outstanding games, including a 400-yard, four-touchdown game against New England last week.

Antonio Brown - The NFL's leading receiver has no reason to think he won't see his usual 10+ targets in this game. He had a 27-yard touchdown catch against the Patriots last week - flashing outside speed and putting on film reason it's unwise to leave him in single coverage.

Shaun Suisham - No one kicks better at Heinz Field, and it looks like it could be a kicking duel. Suisham has been huge at home over the last two seasons, and it could be a 10-point game for him.

On the Fence

Le'Veon Bell - on one hand, the Steelers running game has been dominated by worse opponents, and it just doesn't seem to be in any sort of a rhythm. On the other, the one area of the Steelers' game plan they've achieved consistently is getting Bell 18-24 touches in the run and pass games. While he hasn't been as good at making tacklers miss as he probably will be as he continues to mature as a runner, it just takes one to get him in the end zone, and en route to a big Fantasy game.

Jerricho Cotchery - Many have said to stay away from the Steelers' suddenly productive third receiver, but he's come on at a very high level recently. So much so, it's hard to ignore him. At the same time, rookie WR Markus Wheaton is returning from injury, and that may rob a target or two from Cotchery.

Emmanuel Sanders - After a one-catch, two-target game against Baltimore in Week 7, Sanders has had back-to-back 11-target games, and has 186 receiving yards in those games. It's tough to tell which direction the Steelers will go in their passing game, but Sanders is an intriguing possibility this week. If nothing else, he's been getting the ball much more often recently. That could continue.

Steelers defense

Facing rookie quarterbacks has boded well for the Steelers in terms of actually getting takeaways. They could be a decent bye week replacement. Look for Brown in the return game as well.

Sit

Heath Miller - It's hard to resist the notion Miller was, at one time, a lethal red zone threat in this offense. It just hasn't happened this year, and despite a feeling it will happen at some point, it's hard, in a vacuum, to recommend giving him a start.
