Emmanuel Sanders remains Steelers best fantasy option

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is tackled by Leon Hall of the Cincinnati Bengals - Kirk Irwin

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders caught five passes for 78 yards but didn't score in the Steelers loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders caught five passes for 78 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. Neither he nor Antonio Brown have a receiving touchdown on the year and the Steelers have only found the end zone twice. Ben Roethlisberger threw a one yard touchdown pass to tight end David Paulson against the Bengals in Week 2 and Jerricho Cotchery caught a four yard pass in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans. These numbers don't inspire confidence from fantasy owners looking at the Steelers skill players.

Fantasy impact: Sanders and Brown have produced the most receiving yards and are clearly the most talented receivers on the Steelers offense. However, the Steelers are struggling to score right now and don't have a running game. The struggling Steelers offense reduces Sanders and Brown's value while Cotchery is only valuable if you like vulture touchdowns from wide receivers. Fantasy owners have to be concerned when considering whether to insert Sanders and Brown into their lineups going into Week 3. The Steelers host the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.
