Rivers continues to be a fantasy star as he's among the league leaders in TD passes with 21 and passing yards with 2,354. He led the Chargers to the 20-19 win over Kansas City last week by completing 27-of-36 passes for 316 yards and two TDs, the fourth time he's thrown for more than 300 yards in a game this season. He now has 10 TD passes in his last four games, but this week's battle at Pittsburgh will be tough as the Steelers rank first against the pass and will pressure Rivers all game long.
Tomlinson had a favorable matchup last week against Kansas City and still finished with only 78 yards rushing, no TDs and 39 yards on four receptions. Now he goes against a Steelers' defense that ranks first against the pass and second against the run. You have to start LT2 this week, but the Steelers will give him everything he can handle before a raucous home crowd.
Sproles is one of the top kickoff returners in the NFL, but as the backup RB to Tomlinson he has little value. Last week against Kansas City he totaled 30 yards on three carries and three receptions. Don't plan for much more than that this week at Pittsburgh.
Chambers was active last week against Kansas City, but he was definitely at less than 100 percent because of his ankle injury and he didn't even start. He was held without a catch, but should be back in the lineup this week at Pittsburgh. He's an iffy play in Week 11 because of the ankle and because the Steelers rank No. 1 against the pass. Proceed with caution.
Jackson had his string of consecutive games with a TD catch snapped at three last week against Kansas City, but he still finished with five catches for 83 yards. He now has four or more catches in each of the last four games and he should continue that stretch this week with Chambers still hobbled.
Floyd started in place of Chambers last week and caught four passes for 76 yards and one TD. He now has three TD catches in his last four games and will still have good fantasy value even if Chambers starts ahead of him. Keep him in your lineup this week despite the tough matchup.
Gates looked as healthy last week as he has been all year long and it resulted in eight catches for 66 yards and one TD. It was Gates' sixth TD catch of the season and his third in the last four games. He will need to step up big-time again this week if the Chargers are going to have a chance for the upset win at Pittsburgh.
Kaeding converted both FG attempts last week in the 20-19 win over San Diego and has now converted 17-of-20 FG attempts this season. He has scored 76 points on the season and is averaging 8.5 points per game.
The Chargers failed to force a turnover last week against Kansas City and still has only six interceptions on the season in nine games. This defense was ranked No. 1 in fantasy circles before this season, but now is a major disappointment with no hope for a turnaround this week.
Roethlisberger gamely played last week with a shoulder injury and completed 30-of-42 passes for 284 yards against the Colts, but he failed to throw a TD pass and also threw three costly interceptions. The shoulder is still a concern, but he's expected to start this week and should have good success against a Chargers' pass defense that ranks 32nd in the NFL at 265 yards per game and has already allowed a league-high 17 TD passes. He's a risky play, but start him this week nonetheless.
Parker was inactive last week against Indianapolis with a shoulder injury, but is expected to return this week and gut it out against the Chargers. Look for Parker to split carries with Mewelde Moore as the Steelers pass more than they run this week against the struggling Chargers' pass defense. He should get 14-18 touches and find his way into the end zone again.
Moore filled in for Parker last week and finished with 115 total yards and two TDs, even though he averaged just 2.4 yards per rush. He gained 57 yards and two TDs on 24 carries and then added 48 yards on six receptions. He won't play as much this week with Parker back in the starting lineup, so expect lesser numbers in Week 11 as he plays mostly in passing situations.
Ward was a warrior last week against Indianapolis, catching nine passes for 116 yards. He didn't get into the end zone for the third straight week, but he still was solid while playing with a sore shoulder. Look for continued success this week against the last-ranked passing defense in the NFL.
Holmes has been kept in check the last two weeks since his suspension as last week he finished with four catches for just 29 yards. He hasn't broken any big plays since Week 7, but this week that could change as the Chargers rank 32nd in the NFL against the pass, giving up almost 265 yards per game through the air.
Washington continues to be a solid but unspectacular No. 3 wideout for the Steelers as last week he finished with three catches for 30 yards. Expect more of the same this week as the Steelers face a porous Chargers' pass defense.
With Heath Miller again out with an ankle injury, look for Spaeth to start this week at TE. Spaeth had six catches for 53 yards last week against Indianapolis and is a good option in this passing game.
Reed was perfect on both FG attempts last week and is now a perfect 13-for-13 this year. However, he still has only 60 points on the season and still has just one game this season with more than 8 points.
