Roethlisberger had a terrible day against the Titans, completing 21-of-33 passes for 191 yards, 5.8 YPA, a garbage-time touchdown and one interception. Now he gets the Bengals, one of the best defenses in the league. I am not optimistic.
Given a chance to take the reins, Redman ran for nine yards on eight carries and fumbled twice. With center Marukice Pouncey out for the year, this is a situation you want to avoid until Le'Veon Bell returns.
Despite the awful day for the Steelers, Brown gave his owners a decent performance, catching five passes for 71 yards. He should be started this week, as he'll hit paydirt and rack up more than 100 yards.
Sanders had a team-high 12 targets last week, catching seven of them for 57 yards. He'll do some virtuoso work in garbage time this week.
Suisham was very accurate last year and enters the 2013 season as one of those guys who could unexpectedly challenge for the league lead in points. He'll miss out on a gimme PAT this week as the Steelers go for two points and fail.
The Steelers defense comported itself well against the Titans, but that was the Titans. The Bengals, playing in Cincinnati, present a much tougher challenge. Stay away from the brand name here.
Dalton had a huge first half against the Bears, and ended the day with 282 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. It's hard to start him with a full slate, but I think he'll put up starter's numbers this week.
Bernard got just four carries in his NFL debut. Though his ceiling remains high, you can't start him until we see him take on a larger role in the offense.
Green-Ellis needs volume and short-yardage touchdowns to be effective. He got the score last week. He won't get one this week.
There are a lot of good receivers in the NFL, but if anyone can challenge Calvin Johnson at the top of the mountain, it's Green. He had nine catches for 162 yards and two touchdowns against a very good Chicago defense last week. He'll roll that over right into Week 2.
Sanu had a rough day against the Bears, fumbling when the Bengals were in field goal range, but he did catch four of the five passes thrown his way.
Like teammate Jermaine Gresham, Eifert caught all five targets he had from Andy Dalton, totaling 47 yards. I'd rather own him than Gresham, but I'd rather own about 14 other tight ends than either of them.
Gresham caught all five balls thrown his way, piling up 35 yards. With Tyler Eifert playing alongside him, it's hard to justify having him on your roster.
Nugent didn't attempt a field goal last week, but he'll be out there three times against the Steelers, making him one of the best options this week.
The Bengals shockingly did not get to Jay Cutler once last week, though they did intercept one of his passes. This is one of the best defenses in the league, led by a very strong line. The Bengals will get it right against Pittsburgh.
