Pittsburgh Steelers Daily Fantasy Football Season Outlook – 2015

Gambling911.com has your Pittsburgh Steelers Daily Fantasy Football season outlook for 2015.  This is a team favored to win 9 or more regular season games so expect some nice fantasy production, especially from Roethlisberger at home.  Prices are estimates determined pre-season.

Ben Roethlisberger - $8200 - You will want to consider Roethlisberger in games when he is playing at home.  Under these circumstances it might be wiser to select Roethlisberger over higher priced studs QBs like Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees.  In all but one home game last season, Roethlisberger scored approximately 27 or more fantasy points at DraftKings.  In four of those he exceeded the 30 fantasy point mark or nearly four times his value.

We would consider Roethlisberger on September 20, October 18, November 1, November 8, November 15 and December 6 with a strong focus on November 1 against Cincinnati and the following week against Oakland.  But December 6 you will really want to consider pulling the trigger versus a Colts team he hit over 50 fantasy points against.

Le’Veon Bell - $9800 – You will pay a fortune on Bell and he’ll need to score more than 20 fantasy points to do so. 

Bell has done so twice in three games against Cincinnati with last year’s Week 17 game a bit of a dud.  He scored over 40 fantasy points against the Bengals on the road so November 1 and December 13 may be worth paying the price if more attractive options are not out there.

In two home games against Cleveland, Bell has exceeded the 20-fantasy point mark.

Bell was likely suspended – barring a win on appeal – for the first three games of the season.

Antonio Brown - $8800 – Considered the best wide receiver in the league, Brown comes with a steep price tag. 

October 1 and December 27 versus the Ravens are definite AVOIDS.  Only once in three seasons has Brown managed to score over 20 fantasy points against them (one of three games last season). 

At home against Cincinnati, Brown has enjoyed some degree of value. 

Martavis Bryant - $4300 – In the wide receiver position, Bryant should come into 2015 priced below his average fantasy scoring in 2014 (approximately 13.5 at DraftKings).  This is at 3X the value.

He is one player who exceeded value both times against Baltimore.  One should also consider him against the Bengals.  Bryant had some monster performances in Weeks 8, 9 and 10 against the Colts, Ravens and Jets before coming back down to Earth a bit last season.  His price should be lower as a result and that means substantial value.
