The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense will take on the Baltimore Ravens at home on Thanksgiving in Week 12. Pittsburgh's defense has been one of the top fantasy defenses in the league this season and will look to limit a Ravens offense that has not been nearly as explosive as it was in 2019. The Steelers are installed as 4.5-point home favorites in a game with a low 44.5-point over/under. Fantasy gamers can start the Steelers as a top-10 option in Week 12.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron has now caught a touchdown in three of his past four games. He hasn't been posting very many receiving yards along the way but his performances still put him in the TE1 conversation considering the dearth of options at the position in fantasy. He will take on the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving in Week 12 in a decent matchup for him. The Ravens are allowing the 15th-most fantasy points per game to tight ends and allowed him to post 48 yards and a score against them back in Week 8. Treat Ebron as a low-end TE1 for Week 12.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster turned in a slow performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11, catching just four passes for 19 yards. Smith-Schuster will look to bounce back in Week 12 when he faces the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving night. The Ravens have been tough against wide receivers in fantasy this year, allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. That being said, Smith-Schuster had a solid game against them back in Week 8, catching seven passes for 67 yards. Fantasy gamers can treat him as a high-end WR3 for Week 12.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool continues to take the league by storm in his rookie campaign. Claypool has scored 10 total touchdowns in the first 10 games of his career, emerging as one of Ben Roethlisberger's favorite red-zone targets. The Steelers face off against the Baltimore Ravens in the Thursday night game in Week 12. Claypool will have his work cut out for him against a Baltimore secondary that is allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position. That being said, Claypool has shown that he is a multi-touchdown threat any time he takes the field. Treat him as a low-end WR2 for his game on Thanksgiving night.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson has been trending upwards in recent weeks, having topped 100 receiving yards in two straight games. Now fully healthy and re-established as Ben Roethlisberger's No. 1 wide receiver, Johnson will be a strong play in fantasy against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12's Thursday night game. The Ravens have been tough against wide receivers this year, allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position but Johnson should still get enough volume on Thursday night to finish as a low-end WR2 for fantasy.
