Week 12: vs Green Bay Packers

All WR vs GB

FBG says: Great matchup. Ben Roethlisberger is mired in his worst season in years, posting near-career-lows in completion rate, yardage, and touchdown rates and his lowest fantasy output in nearly a decade. But at times - as we saw last week - this volatile passing game is rescued by its dynamic pass catchers. Antonio Brown remains the league's best all-around receiver, still excelling on underneath, intermediate, and deep routes, and he comes fresh off a massive 10-catch, 146-yard, 3-touchdown show from Week 11. LeVeon Bell is still arguably the league's premier receiving threat out of the backfield, and the emergence of rookie wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster, who's averaging 17.2 yards and 0.15 touchdowns per catch, has boosted Roethlisberger's sagging efficiency. This no longer looks like a passing game that can dominate solely on its quarterback's arm, but it's one that can erupt in any matchup thanks to its wildly dynamic weaponry. Unsurprisingly, they're especially productive against weak secondaries, and the Packers look woefully unprepared to face them in Week 12. The Packers simply can't piece together a solid, or even passable, group of starting cornerbacks. Just three years ago they boasted the likes of Casey Heyward and a pre-concussion Sam Shields among their personnel, but are now grasping for starters from an exceptionally shaky pool of candidates. Davon House has been up-and-down at best on one side, while rookie Kevin King has been fighting through an injury and looks unlikely to play, and Damarious Randall has looked terrible in the slot. In fact, aside from safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, there's very little coverage ability throughout this secondary as a whole. As a result, they've been shredded in each of their last 3 reasonably-close games, including a 297-yard gem by Bears rookie Mitchell Trubisky. Along the way, they've allowed 6 opposing wideouts to reach 88+ yards over their last 6 games, with a total of 8 wideout touchdowns across that span. Those are terrifying numbers for a defense set to face Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and what's left of Martavis Bryant's dynamism.
