Week 13: vs New York Giants

All TE vs NYG

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Ben Roethlisberger enjoyed the indoors accomodations at Lucas Oil Stadium last weekend, and threw 14/20 for 221 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions during a 28-7 win. He put on a clinic with Antonio Brown (how to score passing TDs) with six targets for 5/91/3 flowing to the Steelers' super-star. Ladarius Green was second on the team with three targets for 2/67/0, and he's expected to do more during December - Green should expect increased reps moving forward and has the coaching staff 'excited' about potential contributions, according to head coach Mike Tomlin on Monday November 28. We'll see if Green can stay healthy... Eli Rogers was third on the team last week with two targets for 2/36/0 receiving. Roethlisberger and Brown are on a roll entering Week 13. The Giants' pass defense averages 264.7 net passing yards allowed per game (24th in the NFL) with 10 passing scores given out balanced by 10 interceptions (tied for eighth in the NFL) and 25 sacks (tied for 13th) generated. From Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), New York has averaged 16.6 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (fourth-least in the NFL); and 18.7 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (fifth-least); with 10.5 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (fifth-most). Last week, Josh McCown threw 25/44 for 285 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions vs. the Giants, but he took seven sacks for -37 yards in so doing. This looks like a good matchup for the home-team Steelers, who tend to exploit home-field advantage to it's fullest inside Heinz Field.
