Pittsburgh Steelers DL Cam Heyward (ankle) told the media that he is "definitely" playing in Week 1 against the Washington Redskins. Heyward has been nursing a bum ankle, but he will suit up in the season opener. With Pittsburgh already banged up on the defensive side of the ball, Heyward's presence is a tremendous boost for the unit. Pittsburgh's D/ST has a solid matchup in Week 1 against the Redskins. In 2015, Washington's offense finished the campaign ranked 16th versus opposing D/ST's in fantasy points allowed giving up 8.1 FPPG. Pittsburgh's D/ST is a low-end option this week and should be started with moderate expectations.

Pittsburgh Steelers DL Cameron Heyward (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain during last Friday's preseason season contest against the New Orleans Saints. Heyward told the media that he would "be there Week 1." The Pittsburgh Steelers are the 13th ranked D/ST unit entering the upcoming fantasy football campaign. Once considered one of the league's elite, Pittsburgh's defense fell from grace over the past few years but appears to be trending upwards. They are coming off of a 2015 season where they finished as the 7th ranked D/ST in fantasy football and should once again finish as a top 10 unit in 2016.
