Pittsburgh @ Jacksonville
Team Totals: Steelers 28.75, Jaguars 18.75
Its maddening tendency to play down to inferior competition notwithstanding, Pittsburgh should handily take care of the 1-8 Jaguars, who are yielding the NFL’s second-most points per game (30.1) and scoring the seventh-fewest (22.1). Six of the last eight quarterbacks to face Jacksonville banked top-10 fantasy finishes, notable for Ben Roethlisberger with Pittsburgh opening up its passing game. Restricted to 34.6 dropbacks per game across the Steelers’ initial five contests, Big Ben is up to 42.8 over his last four and notched top-eight QB1 scores in each of his last two starts. Pittsburgh’s offense offers DFS-tournament team-stack possibilities with Roethlisberger at the forefront. All of his pass catchers encounter mouth-watering Week 11 spots. … While acknowledging Pittsburgh’s ground game has reached a state of ineffectiveness in his Tuesday press conference, Mike Tomlin definitively stated that James Conner remains the Steelers’ “bellcow” despite his recent decline in touches.
