Top NFL Betting Expert Picks For Week 11 (11/17/19)

Not a great week in the books last week, and it's been a struggle overall. You can fade what I pick here as I'm on a nice cold streak over the past few weeks. Let's hope for better outcomes as the season begins to close out. Week 10 Picks: 1-3 (25%) 2019-20 Picks: 18-21 (46%)... Read More

Steelers Defense In Prime Spot Against Browns

The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense has been on an absolute tear of late and are in a perfect spot to continue that strong play against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. The unit has recorded at least three takeaways in each of their last five games, including four a week ago against the Rams. However, on... Read More

Vance McDonald Has Some Upside In Week 11

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald has a solid matchup against the Cleveland Browns for Thursday Night Football in Week 11. After totaling just 11 yards on three receptions a week ago, McDonald has now been targeted 18 times over his last three games. The Browns have allowed five touchdowns to tight ends this season,...

Diontae Johnson A Desperation Flex Option In Week 11

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson has put together a solid rookie campaign with 30 receptions, over 360 yards, and three touchdowns. In Thursday night's game against the Cleveland Browns, Johnson will work to stay in the sights of quarterback Mason Rudolph. However, Rudolph has been favoring shorter routes recently, which puts Johnson at a... Read More

James Washington Looks To Continue Strong Play

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver James Washington is coming off the best consecutive performances of his young career. He's hauled in 10 of 11 targets for 159 yards and a touchdown in the last two games, and he seems to be redeveloping a connection with his college quarterback Mason Rudolph. He'll face off against the Cleveland... Read More

JuJu Smith-Schuster Is Touchdown Dependent In Week 11

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has just 12 receptions for 170 yards and one touchdown in his last four games. With a Thursday Night football matchup against the Cleveland Browns in Week 11, Smith-Schuster shouldn't be considered the reliable option many drafted him as. Quarterback Mason Rudolph has been favoring shorter to intermediate routes,... Read More

Jaylen Samuels Not An Option Against Browns

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels steps away from the lead-back role with the expected return of James Conner (shoulder) in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns. Over the last two games, Samuels turned 38 touches into just 123 yards and no touchdowns, so it's clear he's not suited for four-down work in this offense.... Read More

James Conner A Full Practice Participant

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (shoulder) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, all but confirming he's good to go for Thursday night's road game against the Cleveland Browns.

Mason Rudolph Looks To Continue Growth In Week 11

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph gets a favorable matchup for Thursday Night Football when the Steelers travel to take on the Cleveland Browns.

The Steelers Defense Has Their Way In Week 10

The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense held the LA Rams to just 12 points while forcing four turnovers and registering four sacks in their Week 10 victory.

Chris Boswell Perfect On Three Chances

Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell made his only field goal attempt, as well as both extra point tries in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Rams. Boswell didn't get as many opportunities as expected in this one, but he still made the kicks he needed to make. He has missed just one time this season and... Read More

Vance McDonald Quiet On Three Receptions

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald was targeted seven times in Sunday's win over the Rams, but he was only able to corral three of them for a mild 11 yards.

Diontae Johnson With Steady Week 10 Performance

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson hauled in four of his six targets for 64 yards in their Week 10 win over the LA Rams.

JuJu Smith-Schuster Hauls In Three Passes

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster caught half of his six targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 17-12 win over the LA Rams. The Steelers offense never really put together great numbers in the victory, with the exception of James Washington posting a career game. Smith-Schuster is still this team's WR1 in title, but with... Read More

Jaylen Samuels Can't Cash In On 17 Touches

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels rushed for 29 yards on 14 carries, while also catching three of seven targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Rams. The scat back wasn't a big factor in this one, as the Steelers offense never really got into a great sync. However, the second-year back... Read More

Mason Rudolph Manages Solid Performance

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph went 22 of 38 for 242 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the LA Rams. The Steelers Defense stole the spotlight in this one, but Rudolph did enough to keep the team in a position to win. However, he did take a second-half safety for the second time... Read More

Chris Boswell Should Have Plenty Of Chances In Week 10

Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell should be busy in Week 10's home game against the LA Rams. With James Conner (shoulder) out on Sunday, and JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) questionable, the Steelers offense might have a tough time capitalizing on drives. While the weather will be cold, it's nothing that Boswell isn't used to in his... Read More

The Steelers Defense A Top Streaming Option In Week 10

The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense heads into a Week 10 home matchup with the LA Rams being one of the most opportunistic units in the league.

Vance McDonald Has Sneaky Upside Against Rams

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald can be considered a low-end TE1 against the LA Rams in Week 10. After hauling in his third touchdown of the season last week, McDonald will face a defense that can be leaky against tight ends. The Rams allow over eight yards per target to the position, and while... Read More

Diontae Johnson Not A Great Option In Week 10

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver Diontae Johnson took a step back in Week 9, catching just one pass for three yards in a win over the Colts. In the four games prior, Johnson had 18 receptions for 202 yards and two touchdowns. Against the LA Rams in Week 10, the rookie will have a difficult... Read More

James Washington Could See Extra Work Against Rams

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver James Washington had his best game of the season in Week 9, catching all four targets for 69 yards.

JuJu Smith-Schuster Listed As Questionable

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 10's game against the LA Rams.

Jaylen Samuels An RB2 In Week 10

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels will get the starting nod for a second straight week with the announcement that James Conner (knee) will miss the game against the LA Rams.

Mason Rudolph A Low-End QB2 Against The Rams

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph has another tough matchup in Week 10 with the LA Rams. Allowing an average of 20 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, the Rams also have sacked the quarterback 23 times.
