Rashard Mendenhall Fantasy Projection Week 12

The Pittsburgh Steelers are getting ready to face the Kansas City Chiefs after their bye week. On Sunday Night Football, Steelers Rashard Mendenhall will be a key fantasy player for many players. Mendenhall is projected to do well against the Chiefs, according to numberFire. Here is what numberFire projects Mendenhall to do:

16.87 car, 79.00 yds 1.93 rec for 16.81 yds, 0.59 TDs

Coming off the bye week, Mendenhall should be plenty rested. The Kansas City Chiefs currently rank 28th against the run, giving up 136.3 yards per game on the ground. The Chiefs have also given up 8 rushing touchdowns on the season. Mendenhall should be in your starting line up on Sunday, unless you have a significantly better option.
