Fantasy football, Steelers vs. Titans: Who should you start?

Despite coming off a rather disappointing week, fantasy-wise in Week 5, the Pittsburgh Steelers are ripe for a big week for fantasy owners when they face Tennessee Thursday night, Behind the Steel Curtain writes .

BtSC advises starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, running back Rashard Mendenhall, wide receivers Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown, tight end Heath Miller, the Steelers' defense and kicker Shaun Suisham. The players they advise sitting are running backs Isaac Redman, Chris Rainey, Jonathan Dwyer and Baron Batch, saying that there's no need now that Mendenhall is back. They also advise sitting wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery.

The writers project that Roethlisberger will throw for over 300 yards and throw three touchdowns, one each to Wallace, Brown and Miller. They also project over 100 all-purpose yards for Mendenhall with a rushing touchdown. Suisham is projected for eight points: five extra points and a field goal. Finally the defense is projected to hold the Titans to 220 yards, allow 10 points and grab two interceptions and a fumble recovery.
