Week 4: at Pittsburgh Steelers

All TE vs PIT

FBG says: Great matchup. Joe Flacco appears back to his medium-efficiency, medium-impact self. After 2017 that saw him struggle with a nagging back injury, Flacco is posting a solid 6.54 yards per dropback, worlds ahead of last year's pitiful 5.45. It was encouraging to see him work over the stout Broncos pass defense last week, racking up 277 yards to 8 different receivers. He's still not making much happen downfield, but his playmakers are starting to create things here and there. John Brown looks healthy and reenergized as a deep threat, boasting 18.5 yards per catch as the top downfield target. And rookie tight end Mark Andrews keeps making plays in the seams - he caught passes of 30 and 29 yards last week. With Michael Crabtree and capable check-downs running underneath Flacco has the pieces in place to produce on a solid, fantasy-QB2 level going forward. It's just hard to project his big weeks without any slam-dunk sources of dynamism. The Steelers pass defense has tumbled from an up-and-down unit to one of the league's more allowing. Even with the starting cornerbacks in the lineup, this is a rough unit in coverage, one that's already allowed 100-yard receivers in each game thus far - with 5 different guys topping 74. Joe Haden no longer looks capable of both tracking his man down the field and playing the ball; he's a candidate to move to safety in 2019. On the other side, both Artie Burns and Cameron Sutton continue to struggle badly. The top cover man, slot specialist Mike Hilton, looks questionable for Week 4, so it's hard to expect much resistance from this group. With the pass rush wavering a bit, it's shaping up as a potential blowup spot for Joe Flacco and company.
