The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Baltimore Ravens Sunday at Heinz Field and below are my fantasy football stat projections for the black and gold offensive players for this week.
Feel free to add your own projections in the comments below.
Ben Roethlisberger - 34 attempts, 24 completions, 301 yards, 1 touchdowns, 1 interception, 2 rush, 8 yards, 0 touchdowns.
If the run game shows a little life, Roethlisberger should be able to work the middle of the field. In addition, he should be good for two deep balls in this game. Red zone touchdown pass this week mixed in with a tipped pass interception on the Ravens side of the field
Le'Veon Bell - 18 carries, 82 yards, 1 touchdown, 3 receptions, 20 yards, 0 touchdowns.
The Ravens can be run on up the middle and that is where Bell must hit one or two. In addition, expect him to catch a few balls out of the backfield as well.
Felix Jones - 3 carries, 12 yards, no touchdowns, 0 receptions, 0 yards, no touchdowns.
Just enough work f...

Did anyone else expect to see Ben Roethlisberger go all Jim Valvano and run across the Heinz Field turf desperately looking for Charlie Batch after Sunday’s game?
Aren’t Batch and Roethlisberger supposed to engage in a minute-long bro hug whenever Shaun Suisham kicks a last-second field goal in a Pittsburgh Steelers’ win over the Baltimore Ravens?
Suisham’s 42-yard field...
The Steelers defeated the Ravens by running the football; yes, running the football. Pittsburgh has improved to 2-4, while the Ravens have dropped to 3-4. Le’Veon Bell ran for 93 yards, and averaged 4.9 yards per rush. The Steelers as a team, ran for 141 yards. The Steelers struck first. Heath Miller scored a touchdown on a shovel pass from Ben Roethlisberger with 5:24 left in...
You can't count on the Steelers to win all the time now. Ben Roethlisberger? Not the same fantasy friendly QB he used to be. You certainly can't count on the running game for much, and even the defense these days is not as beastly as it once was. However, you can always count on one thing.

Red zone efficiency has plagued the Pittsburgh Steelers offense all season and in the 19-16 win Sunday over the Baltimore Ravens it remained a problem and something that must be fixed if the team is expecting to continue stacking wins.
Against the Ravens, the Steelers were one of three inside the red zone and for the season they are 6-of-16 (37.5%).
Of the six touchdowns produced...

The Pittsburgh Steelers entered the game knowing that they could not gain any ground on the division-leading Cincinnati Bengals, who won their afternoon game on a long, last-second 54-yard field goal by Mike Nugent. But they are facing the Baltimore Ravens, whom they can match in losses at four with a victory.
The Ravens won the coin toss and deferred. On the first...

Winning cures everything. But the 19-6 victory at the Meadowlands may not have provided enough of the elixir needed to speed the recovery of the sickly Pittsburgh Steelers. Optimistically, however, the win against the Jets was the first sign of health from a team that seemed to be without pulse as it deteriorated 0-4.
There were several positives in the Steelers only...
