Minnesota Vikings
vs
Pittsburgh Steelers
Wembley Stadium | Sunday, Sep. 29 | 1 PM EST (CBS)

Pittsburgh Steelers

    1. Ben Roethlisberger
    2. Ben
      Roethlisberger
      QB
    3. PASS YDS331
    4. PASS TD3
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Roethlisberger ended up with a huge game against the Bears, throwing for 406 yards and two TDs. I think he's worth starting against a Vikings team that struggled with Brian Hoyer last week.

    1. Le'Veon Bell
    2. Le'Veon
      Bell
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS54
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS14
    6. REC TD0

    Bell is expected to make his NFL debut in London on Sunday after missing the first three games with a knee injury. It will be interesting to see what he does. He has a chance to own this job.

    1. Felix Jones
    2. Felix
      Jones
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS43
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS5
    6. REC TD0

    Jones is the current starter, but the bet here is that he's a mere caddy while Le'Veon Bell gets his sea legs.

    1. Antonio Brown
    2. Antonio
      Brown
      WR
    3. REC YDS118
    4. REC TD1

    Brown had the biggest game of his career last week, hauling in nine passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns, including one of the prettiest catches you could hope to see.

    1. Emmanuel Sanders
    2. Emmanuel
      Sanders
      WR
    3. REC YDS83
    4. REC TD1

    You may not believe it, but Sanders leads the Steelers with 30 targets this season. He's a nice below-the-radar trade target right now.

    1. Jerricho Cotchery
    2. Jerricho
      Cotchery
      WR
    3. REC YDS39
    4. REC TD0

    Cotchery caught three passes for 52 yards last week, but he really doesn't belong on any roster in a fantasy league.

    1. Heath Miller
    2. Heath
      Miller
      TE
    3. REC YDS40
    4. REC TD1

    Miller made his season debut last week, catching three passes for 35 yards. He could eventually become a fantasy starter.

    1. Shaun Suisham
    2. Shaun
      Suisham
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG1

    Suisham made three field goals against the Bears last week, making him a perfect 4-for-4 on the year.

    1. Pittsburgh Steelers
    2. PTS ALLOWED17
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    Pittsburgh's defense didn't play poorly against the Bears, but it didn't really do anything to move the fantasy needle.

Minnesota Vikings

    1. Matt Cassel
    2. Matt
      Cassel
      QB
    3. PASS YDS254
    4. PASS TD0
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS16
    7. RUSH TD0

    Cassel steps in this week for the injured Christian Ponder. In Cassel's last start, Nov. 18 last season against Cincinnati, he completely only 50 percent of his passes. It'll be tough sledding against the Steelers.

    1. Adrian Peterson
    2. Adrian
      Peterson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS124
    4. RUSH TD2
    5. REC YDS32
    6. REC TD0

    Peterson has turned in strong fantasy games every week, but he has been forced to grind out every single yard. He'll finally find consistent room in London this week.

    1. Greg Jennings
    2. Greg
      Jennings
      WR
    3. REC YDS72
    4. REC TD0

    Jennings caught just three balls for 43 yards last week, and really cannot be considered a fantasy option unless you're desperate.

    1. Jerome Simpson
    2. Jerome
      Simpson
      WR
    3. REC YDS49
    4. REC TD0

    Simpson caught three of his eight targets last week. He won't find things any easier across the pond.

    1. Jarius Wright
    2. Jarius
      Wright
      WR
    3. REC YDS30
    4. REC TD0

    Wright got four targets against the Browns, catching three of them 35 yards.

    1. Kyle Rudolph
    2. Kyle
      Rudolph
      TE
    3. REC YDS64
    4. REC TD0

    Rudolph didn't turn in a great stat line a week ago, but the eight targets were nice to see. He'll be Christian Ponder's favorite target this week.

    1. Blair Walsh
    2. Blair
      Walsh
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG1

    Walsh made both of his field goals last week and remains perfect on the season. He's as reliable as they come.

    1. Minnesota Vikings
    2. PTS ALLOWED24
    3. SACKS0
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Vikings forced three turnovers and sacked Brian Hoyer three times, but it was surprising to see them surrender 31 points. I wouldn't trust them this week.
