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.
