TE Heath Miller, Steelers
Miller is the No. 4-ranked tight end this season, so he's quickly become a must-start in any week. But considering Ben Roethlisberger is out and Byron Leftwich is in, you can expect more checkdowns to the security blanket against the Ravens. Outside of Miller and Mike Wallace, there are just too many unknowns to feel comfortable starting any other player on Pittsburgh's offense.
WR Mike Wallace, Steelers
If there's one asset Leftwich possesses, it's a big arm that can deliver the football downfield. The Ravens will know that, and Wallace may get bracket coverage on most snaps, but it only takes one deep connection for Wallace to be productive fantasy-wise.
RB Ray Rice, Ravens
Rice has scored four times in four games, and he also found paydirt three times against the Steelers in two games last season. Pittsburgh's run defense, usually stout against opponents finding the end zone, has allowed at least one touchdown to opposing running backs in four of the last five weeks. Add in the fact that Rice also contributes yards in the receiving game, and you have another must-start week for the Ravens running back.
QB Joe Flacco, Ravens
The Steelers are the fourth-best fantasy defense against opposing quarterbacks this season, but Flacco has enjoyed a nice run against Pittsburgh lately. In two games last season, Flacco threw for 524 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions—including one game with three touchdowns and another with 300 yards. Flacco is in the teens for quarterback rankings this week, but he's still startable, especially with some of the injuries on the Steelers defense.
