Fantasy football projections, Week 15: Bengals vs. Steelers featuring A.J. Green, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell

We break down the Week 15 matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Week 15 matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers is an old-time rivalry that could spark some notable performances. We've got all the fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberFire.

Cincinnati Bengals

Last week, quarterback Andy Dalton showed that he could air the ball out against the Indianapolis Colts. He completed 24 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns. It was nice to see for his fantasy owners as Dalton has been inconsistent for more than a month now. He'll be in for a tougher test at Heinz Field.

If Dalton succeeds on Sunday, he'll be looking for A.J. Green. Green has touchdowns in three of his last four games including scores in the last two games. He'll be covered tightly by the Steelers but he's got the size, speed and strength to put up numbers regardless of the defense.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger is no longer looking to just one receiver in the passing game. Over the past few weeks, he's been finding Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery for scores. Both of those guys have some value in deeper fantasy leagues. That said, the buck still stops with Antonio Brown. Brown had five catches for 138 yards and a touchdown last week. It seems he's always a good bet for production, whether it means a few big plays or a high number of receptions.

If the Steelers are to win on Sunday though, the passing game will need help from running back Le'Veon Bell in order to do it. Bell is a budding young star who can not only rack up rushing yards, but is also a reliable pass catcher. He'll be used a lot on Sunday and is a good bet to put up some solid numbers as the fantasy postseason continues.
