Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet 2011: Pittsburgh Steelers

Here's a fantasy football cheat sheet for the top players on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Running back Rashard Mendenhall: Talented young back likely to get tons of carries. No. 5 overall in Yahoo!, No. 5 RB in Yahoo!, No. 12 overall in ESPN, No. 8 running back in ESPN.

Wide receiver Mike Wallace: Third-year receiver hoping to solidify his place as an elite wideout. No. 28 overall in Yahoo!, No. 6 receiver in Yahoo!, No. 7 receiver in ESPN.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger: Strong performer will play a full season this year, health permitting. A great option in the later rounds after you've used your first several picks on running backs and receivers, as you should. No. 47 overall in Yahoo!, No. 10 quarterback in Yahoo!, No. 9 quarterback in ESPN.

Wide receiver Hines Ward: Don't overpay for a former star - likely to get fewer balls this year as Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders develop. No. 40 receiver in Yahoo!, No. 50 receiver in ESPN.

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders: A good late-round option, but beware his foot problems. No. 60 receiver in Yahoo!, No. 61 receiver in ESPN.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown: No. 68 receiver in ESPN. A great late-round pick; he's had an impressive camp and a good preseason in his second year in the league.

Pittsburgh Steelers: No. 3 defense in Yahoo!, No. 1 defense in ESPN. Defenses are pretty fungible, so you should wait until the late rounds to pick one, even a good one like the Steelers'.
