Ravens vs. Steelers: Fantasy football projections featuring Ray Rice, Torrey Smith and Mike Wallace

Geoff Burke

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 11 matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Baltimore Ravens take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football in Week 11. These two NFC North teams are currently averaging 354 yards each per game. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 11, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Baltimore Ravens

While the Steelers defense ranks No. 1 overall in total yards allowed, we'll still likely see some solid fantasy outings from a few Ravens. Joe Flacco threw all over the Raiders last week, and if he can keep that momentum going, he'll be in for another strong performance. Flacco threw four touchdowns and zero interceptions against Pittsburgh in two games last season. Torrey Smith has three touchdown receptions in the past two weeks. He also managed to find the end zone in his last matchup with the Steelers in 2011.

Ray Rice is still a must-start. What's new? He's scored in each of the past two weeks, and Pittsburgh has yielded two rushing touchdowns to opposing backs in the last two games. Regardless of how tough this defense is, Rice always manages to please his fantasy owners.

Baltimore is giving up 390 yards per game, an uncharacteristically bad mark for this once elite defense. Unfortunately the Steelers will be without Ben Roethlisberger in Week 11, so the ground game might be relied on more. Rashard Mendenhall appears to be the favorite to start this week. With this news he holds greater value than Issac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer in what should be a timeshare once again.

Mike Wallace will continue to be the primary target in the passing game with Antonio Brown nursing an ankle injury. Heath Miller and Emmanuel Sanders, though, aren't looking like promising plays with Byron Letfwich at the helm of the offense.
