Week 5: vs Pittsburgh Steelers
All RB vs PIT
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The Chargers shorted out in the rushing phase of the game vs. Cleveland, with 21/91/0 as a team - Melvin Gordon had just 12/38/0 rushing and 2/8/0 receiving to his credit, while Danny Woodhead posted 8/54/0 rushing and 8/84/0 receiving on a day when the passing game was emphasized. Woodhead remains the superior fantasy back on this squad, especially in PPR leagues.
The Steelers' rush D is ranked 18th in the NFL in terms of yards allowed per game, but they have just on rushing score given out to date (113.2 yards allowed per game on average). Baltimore had that rushing score, though, with 39/191/1 rushing in one of the annual slug-fests between the two divisional rivals. Two weeks ago, St. Louis managed a more typical 18/71/0 rushing against the Steelers.
This is another tough matchup for the Chargers' backs despite the breakdown against the Ravens last week on Pittsburgh's part.
