- Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell made his debut and looked good. He only averaged 3.7 YPC on 16 carries but had four catches for 27 yards. His role should only increase throughout the year.
- Minnesota quarterback Matt Cassel had a stellar day with a 64% completion percentage, 10 YPA, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Minnesota will still search for a quarterback to groom but Cassel could have value this year in an effort to audition for a job next year. Just don’t be in a hurry to ride him to a championship.
- Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown continues to snag the most targets for Pittsburgh. With 13 more to go with 12 catches, there is no doubt Brown is bottom-tier WR1 for dynasty purposes and more ideally a WR2.
- Pittsburgh rookie receiver Markus Wheaton saw five targets today, a season-high. As Wheaton develops, he’ll get more looks. He’s a good buy-low candidate.
- Minnesota linebacker Chad Greenway had his best game of the year with 10 tackles, a sack, an interception and a pass defended. At 30, Greenway is most likely on the downside of his career and could make great trade bait for a contending dynasty team.
