Week 3: at Chicago Bears

All WR vs CHI

FBG says: Good matchup. Ben Roethlisberger looked just fine in Week 2, testing the Vikings' imposing secondary to a solid amount of success. He completed 23 of 35 passes for 243 yards and 2 scores, and he could've had a markedly bigger game. Roethlisberger threw a whopping 10 deep passes (15+ yards downfield), two of which drew long pass interference flags. He simply looks far more confident and accurate when playing at home. He'll be on the road this Sunday, though, where his outlook is a little less rosy. Over his last 3 seasons (plus 1 game), his yardage has fallen by 16% per attempt and 21% per game away from Pittsburgh, and he's thrown just 1.1 touchdowns a game over that span. Overall, his fantasy production has declined by a whopping 43% on the road, including some memorably middling showings against mediocre pass defenses. All told, though, his arrow is pointing up. Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant are winning battles on all levels of the field, and dual-threat extraordinaire LeVeon Bell is rounding into form. Under defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, the Bears have improved exponentially against the pass. They've been especially adept at funneling opportunity away from opposing WR1s; dating back to the start of last season, they've shut down the likes of DeAndre Hopkins, Dez Bryant, Mike Evans, Jordy Nelson, and Julio Jones (twice). Of course, as our John Lee will point out, that's a taller task when that WR1 has a strong complement on the other side, as Evans did in last week's matchup. With DeSean Jackson drawing deep help down the field, Evans managed to meet his typical expectations, catching 7 of his 9 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown (and dropping another). As a result, it's hard to project what Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant will be able to do Sunday. The Bears don't use top cornerback Prince Amukamara to shadow top receivers, and the Steelers move their wideouts around quite a bit, so both will get their chances against shaky cover man Marcus Cooper. Expect occasional fireworks on that side, as the Bears will struggle to provide safety help to both cornerbacks.
