Fantasy Football Start Em Sit Em: Play All Steelers Against Browns

If your fantasy football team is still playing this week, you’re probably concerned about who to start. Some teams will be sitting their stars, and even more will have little left to play for. Here’s a good general rundown of who might pose problems for your fantasy team this week.

If you have any Steelers on your team, though, you have a dream situation. Not only will your guy be playing, but he’ll be playing hard, and he’ll be playing against players he can beat. The Steelers need a win against the Browns to wrap up a first-round bye, so they’ll be playing hard – and the Browns are bad. So automatic starts like Rashard Mendenhall and Mike Wallace remain automatic, and more marginal starts like Hines Ward (or, if you’re in a very deep league, Emmanuel Sanders or Heath Miller) suddenly look a lot better. And Ben Roethlisberger, who has posted big yardage totals but not big touchdown numbers in the past few games, looks great as well. Take advantage of the Steelers’ situation this week by playing as many of their players as possible.
