Pittsburgh Steelers (DEF, PIT) - Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Stream in All Leagues (for Week 1)

ANALYSIS: The Pittsburgh Steelers defense is not quite the dominant and feared defense that it used to be, but they have a tasty matchup in Week 1 of the fantasy football season vs. the offensively-deficient Cleveland Browns. With Josh Gordon out of the lineup, a lackluster group of wide receivers playing instead, and an unproven quarterback in Brian Hoyer, I'm hoping that the Pittsburgh defense can feast on these Browns all day.

As we all know, there are no guarantees in football - but in fantasy we have to take calculated risks and play the matchups. I wouldn't be surprised if the Pittsburgh defense not only limits the Browns with the amount of points allowed, but also racks up some sacks and interceptions along the way. Currently only owned in 59% of Fleaflicker leagues, they can still be scooped up off of many waiver wires. If you're not thrilled with your Week 1 defensive matchup, the Steelers could be a nice option to consider.
