Latest Steelers Buzz

Fantasy Football Focus

Should you pick up Nate Washington?
Steelers WR Nate Washington caught a career-high six passes for 94 yards and a score Sunday night in Jacksonville. The Steelers will have games where they will throw the ball 35-40 times but Washington is nothing more than a 4th or 5th receiver regarding fantasy value
Hines Ward had a strong game catching seven passes for 90 yards and a score. Ward is a nice receiver to have as your #3 option but he’s a risk as a #2.
Mewelde Moore’s value goes down with Willie Parker returning next week but hold onto him for at least another two weeks to see how the carries play out
Broncos WR Eddie Royals stock has plummeted but because of the potential touches he could have in any game, keep him on your roster but he’s not an every week starter.
If you have a few running backs on byes, pick up Cardinals running back Tim Hightower. Hightower has Four touchdowns in his last five games. He’s a risk because he doesn’t get many touches but he should have opportunities in the redzone against the Cowboys
Keep Jackson: Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson only had two receptions last week while teammate Reggie Brown has been Donovan McNabb’s go-to-guy the past two games catching 10 receptions. Still, Jackson has more value due to the return game although Brown is a nice mid-season pick up.
Keep Roy Williams but drop every other Lions receiver.
Drop Chad Johnson
I would hold onto Maurice Jones-Drew although the lack of touches have been a problem. Give it another few weeks
