Steelers' Jesse James: Notches touchdown in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James brought in five of eight targets for 21 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

The third-year tight end equaled his largest target share of the season with position mate Vance McDonald (ankle) inactive, parlaying it into his first touchdown since Week 1 in the process. James hadn't been targeted in three of the prior four contests, so Thursday's relative success could have at least partly been attributed to McDonald's status. However, the tight end position isn't an overly integral one in the 2017 version of the Steelers' offense, as Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell, and as of late, JuJu Smith-Schuster, are commanding a majority of the looks in the passing game. James remains a hit-or-miss fantasy option each week and will look to build on Thursday's success versus the Packers in Week 12.

Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Four-catch effort in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith-Schuster brought in four of eight targets for 47 yards in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

Despite only bringing in half of them, Smith-Schuster's eight targets were certainly an encouraging figure. The 20-year-old has now logged 25 looks over the last three games, 16 of which he's parlayed into receptions. Teammate Antonio Brown stole the show Thursday with 10 receptions for 144 yards and a trio of scores, but with former No. 2 receiver Martavis Bryant dropping a couple of passes, Smith-Schuster's standing as the next pass-catching option behind Brown is firmer than ever. He'll look to pull his numbers back up against the Packers' secondary in Week 12.

Steelers' Antonio Brown: Tramples Titans secondary in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown brought in 10 of 13 targets for 144 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans. He also fumbled once but it was recovered.

After disappointing fantasy owners just four days prior with a lackluster showing against a beatable Colts secondary, Brown more than made up for it versus the Titans. He got his barrage started early with a 41-yard scoring reception to cap off the Steelers' first possession, subsequently added a leaping five-yard touchdown catch and an acrobatic 10-yard, one-handed end-zone grab in which he trapped the ball against his helmet in the second half. It was Brown's first multi-touchdown game of 2017 and his first 100-yard effort since Week 6 against the Chiefs, snapping a three-game stretch in which he'd registered no more than 70 receiving yards. He'll look to put together another spectacular effort against a vulnerable Packers secondary in Week 12.

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Generates 103 total yards in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell rushed 12 times for 46 yards and brought in nine of 11 targets for 57 yards in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau appeared intent on not allowing Bell to beat the Titans on the ground, leading to the standout running back's lowest carry total since the opener versus the Browns. The 25-year-old's yardage tally was also his worst since that contest, but Bell helped make it up to fantasy owners with his second-most prolific reception total of the campaign. Bell's usage continues to be through the roof in most games, rendering him an elite option in all season-long and daily formats despite a current 3.8 yards per carry figure that's his lowest since his rookie season. He'll look to get his numbers on the ground back up versus the Packers in a Week 12 home showdown.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Four-touchdown night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roethlisberger completed 30 of 45 passes for 299 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans. He also rushed once for 10 yards.

Roethlisberger thrived in the no-huddle attack that helped lead to a Week 10 comeback victory over the Colts, firing a 41-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown on the Steelers' first possession and rarely letting up until the contest was well in hand. The veteran signal caller only got better as the game went on, going a blistering 20 of 23 for 185 yards with three touchdowns in the second half, two going to Brown and one to tight end Jesse James. Although he fell just short of his second 300-yard effort over the last three games, Roethlisberger's four passing scores were a season high. He'll look to replicate the performance in a Week 12 home date versus the Packers.
