Fantasy Focus: Steelers vs Titans
The Steelers and Titans kick-off the NFL season tonight at 8:30 est standard time. For those fantasy football players, here are a few players to focus on:
Steelers Defense - Returns most starters from last laster. The two replacements, William Gay and Lawrence Timmons are not downgrades by any means
Chris Johnson - Very fast and elusive. The Steelers defense historically has had trouble with cut-back runners (ala Fred Taylor). Johnson is that type of player.
Ben Roethlisberger - Look for Big Ben to continue his success from the Super Bowl and put up solid numbers tonight against the Titans.
Hines Ward - Mr. Dependable will show why the Steelers decided to extend his contract and have him as a Steeler for life.
Limes Sweed - As the #3 wide receiver, Sweed is a mismatch for any team
Stefan Logan - As proven in the preaseason, Logan is an absolute speedster (ala Sproles from San Diego). He's dangerous as both a kick and punter returner. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he runs one back for a touchdown tonight.
