Pittsburgh Steelers

New York Jets

    1. Geno Smith
    2. Geno
      Smith
      QB
    3. PASS YDS235
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS18
    7. RUSH TD0

    Smith had perhaps the best game of his rookie year last week, completing 16-of-20 passes for 199 yards and three TDs. Pittsburgh is a much tougher matchup than Atlanta.

    1. Bilal Powell
    2. Bilal
      Powell
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS73
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS20
    6. REC TD0

    Powell's value is squeezed by the returns of Mike Goodson and Chris Ivory, but he's still the No. 1 back for the Jets.

    1. Mike Goodson
    2. Mike
      Goodson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS32
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS14
    6. REC TD0

    Goodson's role could increase in the future, but for now you should stay away from him.

    1. Chris Ivory
    2. Chris
      Ivory
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS21
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Ivory returned from injury last week, but he's running third in this backfield.

    1. Jeremy Kerley
    2. Jeremy
      Kerley
      WR
    3. REC YDS85
    4. REC TD1

    Kerley had five recpetions for 68 yards and a TD last week, and looks like the No. 1 receiver for the Jets, even when both Stephen Hill and Santonio Holmes are healthy.

    1. Stephen Hill
    2. Stephen
      Hill
      WR
    3. REC YDS37
    4. REC TD0

    Hill was clearly limited against the Falcons by the concussion suffered two weeks ago. He should be back at full strength, but this isn't a good matchup for him.

    1. Jeff Cumberland
    2. Jeff
      Cumberland
      TE
    3. REC YDS45
    4. REC TD0

    Cumberland caught three passes for 79 yards and a score last week, and could be in for a bigger role in the future.

    1. Kellen Winslow
    2. Kellen
      Winslow
      TE
    3. REC YDS18
    4. REC TD0

    Winslow made his lone catch last week count, scoring on a one-yard pass from Geno Smith. The emergence of Jeff Cumberland makes him a dicey play.

    1. Nick Folk
    2. Nick
      Folk
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG3

    Folk is a perfect 11-for-11 on field goals this year and actually could be considered a regular fantasy starter.

    1. New York Jets
    2. PTS ALLOWED13
    3. SACKS4
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    If not for a questionable flag, the Jets would have had two impressive goalline stands against the Falcons. They registered one takeaway and two sacks while allowing 28 points. Expect them to put the heat on Roethlisberger.
