Cleveland @ Pittsburgh
Team Totals: Browns 21, Steelers 18.5
Totaled below 40 points, Browns-Steelers is a game to fade in most fantasy lineup decisions. … In rain-soaked conditions versus Cincinnati, Deshaun Watson did little to quiet speculation in Week 1 that he’s no longer the quarterback he was in Houston after so much time away. Watson’s dual-threat ability still elevated him to Week 1’s overall QB5 finish on the back of 5/45/1 rushing. After the 49ers did whatever they wanted to the Steelers’ defense on Opening Day, I’m sticking with Watson as a locked-and-loaded QB1 starter. … Nick Chubb (49%) only narrowly out-snapped Jerome Ford (41%) in last Sunday’s win over the Bengals, yet Chubb pasted Cincinnati for his 29th career 100-yard rushing game. For Week 2, Chubb’s matchup got a colossal boost when the Steelers placed six-time Pro Bowl DT Cam Heyward (groin) on I.R. The 49ers all-out dominated on interior run plays after Heyward’s Opening Day exit.
Watson’s Week 1 targets: Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore 7; Chubb 4; David Njoku 3; Donovan Peoples-Jones, Marquise Goodwin, and Harrison Bryant 2; David Bell and Jordan Akins 1. … Cooper projects to see a lot of 33-year-old Patrick Peterson after PatPete got dog walked by Brandon Aiyuk in Week 1. Even after his slow opener, Cooper is a rock-solid WR2 play at Pittsburgh.
