Week 3: at Philadelphia Eagles
All QB vs PHI
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Ben Roethlisberger had 19/37 for 259 yards passing, three TDs and two interceptions thrown vs. the Bengals last weekend, and is currently the fifth-ranked fantasy quarterback in the land with 46/74 for 559 yards passing, six TDs and three interceptions thrown through two weeks, with two rushes for 12 yards so far this year. Antonio Brown is the eighth-ranked fantasy wide receiver in the land, with 12/165/2 through two games - Jesse James is the 15th-ranked fantasy tight end with 8/60/1 so far. On Wednesday, September 21 head coach Mike Tomlin said Markus Wheaton (shoulder) looks 'ready to go,' though Tomlin indicated that Wheaton's participation in practice leading up to Week Three would determine his availability. The Steelers are getting healthier as September rolls along.
The Eagles' pass defense has generated six sacks and two interceptions while allowing zero TD passes through two games, and currently sits at fifth in the NFL averaging 194 yards passing allowed per game. Over the first two weeks of the season, Philadelphia has averaged just 11.5 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (least in the NFL); and 16.5 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (fifth-least in the league); with 2.1 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (least in the NFL). This is a vastly improved pass defense that is playing quite well in Philadelphia right now.
