2011 Fantasy Football Week 4 Start/Sit: Steelers Vs. Texans

Should Antonio Brown start for your fantasy team as the Steelers face the Texans this week?

The Steelers are 2-1, but they're coming off a very shaky win against the Peyton Manning-less Indianapolis Colts and having all sorts of problems with their offensive line. Should that affect who you start and sit for your fantasy team against the Houston Texans this week?

Well, maybe not. If you've got Rashard Mendenhall, who has performed poorly so far this year, you still have to run him out there. And as nerve-wracking as some of the Steelers' performances have been, their passing game has been decent, so despite the offensive-line issues, Ben Roethlisberger is still a clear start, and nothing has happened to the Steelers' receivers that should change your opinion of them. Mike Wallace is still a fantasy stud, and Hines Ward, Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown are all still maybes, depending on who your other options are. (Tight end Heath Miller might be moving into the "maybe" category, too, after a strong performance against Indianapolis.) Given his value as a return guy, I might be more inclined to start him than either Ward or Sanders.
