The views expressed in this article are not of the New York Football Giants but those of an independent Fantasy Expert.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers
Last Week: 209 yards, TD
Roethlisberger should have a big game against the Titans’ 25th ranked pass defense after his worst performance of the season at Lincoln Financial Field. Mike Wallace, who only had two catches for 17 yards in week 5, and Antonio Brown, who only has one touchdown on the year, will try to exploit one of the thinnest secondaries in the league. Throwing in the factor of a few days rest, Pittsburgh’s speedy receivers should have a productive night in Nashville.
Kendall Wright, WR, Titans
Last Week: 9 catches, 66 yards
Wright seems to be getting more involved in the Titans’ offensive game plan each week after coming off both season and career highs with nine receptions and 66 yards. The question that remains to be answered is if Chris Johnson can start breaking tackles and getting the run game going against the 11th ranked run defense in Pittsburgh. Polamalu will more than likely miss yet another game, forcing the Steelers secondary to play without one of the best to ever do it. It only gives Wright a better probability of catching a deep score.
Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Steelers
Last Week: 101 yards total, TD
Mendenhall proved last week in Philadelphia that there looks to be no signs of any setbacks as he rushed for 81 yards on only 14 carries. With the Titans’ rush defense being ranked towards the bottom of the league at 28th, the Steelers running back should be back to his normal production after missing the first four games of the year due to an injured knee.
