190 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 10 rush yards, 1 INTRoethlisberger is averaging 10.3 yards per attempt since his return -- pretty sharp, especially considering he has only started two games this season. He could struggle against a Saints defense giving up just 6.5 YPA this season, however.
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 50 rush yards, 1 rush TDThe Steelers lessened Mendenhall's workload last week, giving him 16 touches after averaging nearly 25 per game. He should still be a good fantasy option going forward, but keep in mind that Mewelde Moore may get a few more carries.
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 20 rush yardsMoore had his most productive game of the season last week, with four carries and four catches for 59 total yards. Coaches want to give him more touches to ease the load on Rashard Mendenhall, but likely not enough for any fantasy relevance.
3 rec, 70 yards, 1 TDHines Ward sees more targets, but Wallace has four touchdowns in his last four games.
7 rec, 75 yardsWard has 12 receptions in two games with Ben Roethlisberger back at quarterback, the same number he had in the four weeks that Roethlisberger sat. Ward should continue to be the team's first passing option as the season goes on.
3 rec, 25 yardsMiller has yet to fall into a groove with Ben Roethlisberger. So far Miller is well off the 76-reception pace he set last season. He should improve over the course of the second half of the season, but right now there is little value.
2 PATs, 1 FGReed is perfect from within 40 yards this season, making three field goals from 39 yards or closer last week. He is just 1-for-5 from distance however, limiting his value in league's that take into account length.
2 sacks, 2 INTIn theory this is a bad matchup for Pittsburgh, but the Saints are reeling after turning the ball over four times and scoring 17 points against Cleveland. New Orleans should bounce back, but the Steelers still have one of the best defenses in the league.
200 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 2 INTBrees looked out-of-sorts last week, throwing four interceptions. He was still a productive fantasy option, especially if your league does not subtract points for picks. He has a poor matchup against the Steelers, but is safe to roll with as always.
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 35 rush yardsIvory had 15 carries for the second week in a row, and though he gained just 48 yards, he is still the back to own in New Orleans as long as Pierre Thomas is out with an ankle injury. Keep in mind that the Steelers have the league's best run defense.
5 rec, 65 yards, 1 TDColston finally ended his scoreless streak with a touchdown in the waning minutes of Sunday's loss to Cleveland. With 22 receptions for 262 yards in his past three games, he seems to be finding his stride.
3 rec, 40 yardsMoore caught five passes last week mostly as a safety valve for Drew Brees. Outside of a monster Week 3 performance, his numbers have largely been mediocre. He's one to avoid against the Steelers.
3 rec, 50 yardsMeachem had just two receptions last week, with the Saints offense stalling once again. Drew Brees' four interceptions certainly don't fit his character. Still, the Steelers aren't the best bounce-back matchup for either player, or anyone really.
3 rec, 30 yardsShockey has just 14 targets over his last three games, compared to 23 over the three games preceding. The Saints have been slowly increasing the workload of rookie Jimmy Graham, with Shockey's production bearing the brunt.
1 PAT, 1 FGHartley's struggles this season are well documented, and that the fact that the Saints offense is still stuck in first gear doesn't help matters. Against one of the league's best defenses, Hartley is one to avoid for the time being.
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FumbleBen Roethlisberger hasn't missed a beat despite his four-game suspension. Still, the Saints are giving up just 6.5 yards per pass attempt. The Steelers could have some success on the ground, but the Saints aren't a bad play this week.
