Week 12: at Seattle Seahawks
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Seattle is always a tough place to visit, and that is what the Steelers have to do Sunday afternoon. Ben Roethlisberger fought through his sore foot to come off the bench and win one for the home team two weeks ago (bombing the Browns for 22/33 for 379 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown). His favorite wide receivers feasted on the Browns during that one, with 10 targets for 6/178/1 going to Martavis Bryant and 14 for 10/139/2 flowing to Antonio Brown. Brown and Bryant owners love Roethlisberger and his passing arm. The Seattle pass D is ranked second in the NFL this year, averaging 207.2 net passing yards allowed, with 10 passing scores handed out but a mere four interceptions (tied for dead last in the NFL) and 25 sacks generated (tied for 11th in the NFL). They gave up 22/34 for 247 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions to Blaine Gabbert last week, though, and over the past four weeks the Seahawks have flown in the middle of the NFL flock, averaging 19.2 fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks (19th in the NFL), allowing the ninth-least fantasy points to opposing wide receivers (18.6 per game on average) and have given up the 13th-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends (9.4 per game on average). This is not a shut-down pass D entering December, but they are hard on opposing wideouts. This will be a tough matchup for Roethlisberger, but he's also probably your fantasy starter unless you are loaded up for bear at quarterback.
