Pittsburgh Steelers
vs
Detroit Lions
Heinz Field | Sunday, Nov. 17 | 1 PM EST (FOX)

Detroit Lions

    1. Matthew Stafford
    2. Matthew
      Stafford
      QB
    3. PASS YDS279
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Stafford had just 219 yards and 6.3 YPA against the Bears, but the three touchdowns had to please his owners. Play him as usual this week.

    1. Reggie Bush
    2. Reggie
      Bush
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS91
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS42
    6. REC TD0

    Bush totaled 113 yards from scrimmage last week and could be in for a big day against a Pittsburgh defense that allows the ninth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.

    1. Joique Bell
    2. Joique
      Bell
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS36
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS20
    6. REC TD0

    Bell ran well against the Bears, picking up 41 yards on 10 carries, but his role remains too small to consider him in fantasy leagues.

    1. Calvin Johnson
    2. Calvin
      Johnson
      WR
    3. REC YDS103
    4. REC TD2

    Johnson finally had some success against the Bears, though it was largely against an injured Charles Tillman. You know the drill.

    1. Kris Durham
    2. Kris
      Durham
      WR
    3. REC YDS70
    4. REC TD0

    Durham caught just one pass last week, but it went for six points. Still, he should be off the fantasy radar now that bye weeks have all but passed.

    1. Brandon Pettigrew
    2. Brandon
      Pettigrew
      TE
    3. REC YDS32
    4. REC TD0

    Pettigrew had five catches for 70 yards against the Bears. Consider him a low-end TE1 this week.

    1. David Akers
    2. David
      Akers
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG3

    Akers missed his only field-goal attempt last week and is 12-for-16 on the season.

    1. Detroit Lions
    2. PTS ALLOWED23
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    The Lions defense was decent overall against the Bears last week, but didn't do much to move the needle for fantasy owners. Don't expect too much against the Steelers.

Pittsburgh Steelers

    1. Ben Roethlisberger
    2. Ben
      Roethlisberger
      QB
    3. PASS YDS325
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Roethlisberger surprisingly struggled against the Bills last week, making him hard to trust against the Lions. I still consider him a fringe QB1 though.

    1. Le'Veon Bell
    2. Le'Veon
      Bell
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS74
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS30
    6. REC TD0

    Bell didn't have a great day in terms of yards per carry, but he did score and added three receptions for 39 yards. Start him this week, even against that strong front four of Detroit.

    1. Antonio Brown
    2. Antonio
      Brown
      WR
    3. REC YDS105
    4. REC TD1

    Brown continues to chug along, catching six passes for 104 yards last week. Start him as usual.

    1. Jerricho Cotchery
    2. Jerricho
      Cotchery
      WR
    3. REC YDS63
    4. REC TD0

    Cotchery caught another touchdown pass last week and could be a sneaky play against a Lions team allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Emmanuel Sanders
    2. Emmanuel
      Sanders
      WR
    3. REC YDS47
    4. REC TD0

    Sanders had four catches for 13 yards last week. He is being outperformed by Cotchery these days.

    1. Heath Miller
    2. Heath
      Miller
      TE
    3. REC YDS60
    4. REC TD0

    The Lions allow the eighth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends, making Miller a tough guy to start this week.

    1. Shaun Suisham
    2. Shaun
      Suisham
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG3

    Suisham went 3-for-3 on field goals last week to run his season total to an impressive 19-for-21.

    1. Pittsburgh Steelers
    2. PTS ALLOWED30
    3. SACKS1
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Lions are not the Bills. Pittsburgh should not be on your radar for Week 11.
