In order to get Eli Rogers playing time in the slot and JuJu Smith-Schuster on the outside, Steelers WR Martavis Bryant might get a bit of break this week, according to QB Ben Roethlisberger on his recent 93.7 The Fan radio spot.
Bryant has been a disappointment for fantasy owners this season, recording only one game of double-digit fantasy points—Week 2, when he caught 3-of-4 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown. In his other four games, he has totaled 12 catches, 113 yards, and 0 TDs. Bryant is currently ranked as our No. 40 WR in standard leagues and our No. 50 WR in PPR leagues in a great matchup versus the Chiefs, according to our aFPA metrics. It's a risk starting him with confidence this week, but with four teams on a bye, you might be forced to do so.

Week 7 vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Roethlisberger bounced back from a 5-interception game to throw for 252 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception at Kansas City. Now he gets a Cincinnati defense ranked second in the NFL in passing yards allowed. He had at least 259 yards in each of the two meetings with the Bengals last season and threw for 4 combined touchdowns. But Cincinnati has given up just 5 passing TDs this season. Roethlisberger is a QB2 this week, even playing at home.
