The Pittsburgh Steelers come off a narrow loss to the Baltimore Ravens last week 16-14. Kenny Pickett left the game early due to a concussion and Mitch Trubisky filled in. Trubisky was not effective in throwing 3 interceptions. Najee Harris averaged less than 3 yards per carry and ended with 33 yards on 12 carries. Diontae Johnson led the team in targets and catches hauling in 6 for 82 yards. Rookie George Pickens caught 3 passes for 78 yards, and Pat Freiermuth had 33 yards receiving and a touchdown. This Pittsburgh offense has been tough to roster this season outside of a one-off here and there.
Carolina has now won 3 of their last 4 games after upsetting the Seahawks on the road last week. D’onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard carried the load last week. Foreman had 21 carries for 74 yards and 1 catch, while Hubbard carried the ball 14 times for 74 yards and one touchdown. Hubbard was more active in the passing game catching 3 passes. Sam Darnold passed for just 120 yards completing only 14 of 24 attempts. Shenault led the team in receiving with 31 yards on 4 catches. DJ Moore saw 3 targets but was not able to haul any of them in.
This is a game that I will be looking to avoid in DFS this weekend with 2 bad teams and a low total of only 37.5 points. I expect this game to play slowly as both teams should look to establish it and take the ball out of their QB’s hands as much as possible. If Kenny Pickett is cleared to play that would improve the Steelers passing game.
THE DFS GEMS
Chuba Hubbard, CAR – $4900 on DraftKings. Hubbard would be my preferred option in this game if I was to play anyone. Chuba has a tasty price tag under 5K and was more productive last week and more active in the passing game.
George Pickens, PIT – $5000 on DraftKings. If Pickett is cleared, I would like this play more so but he has nice upside and has been targeted often in the RedZone.
