Which player will step up for the Steelers against the Vikings?

"If he gets protection he can be as accurate as anybody I have studied", ESPN analyst Jon Gruden insisted during Monday night's broadcast of the Vikings' 29-19 victory over the Saints. He played stellar last week and it would hurt the Vikings if he couldn't play. He even has favorable matches throughout the year.

Three starters - QB Sam Bradford (knee), LB Anthony Barr (hamstring) and CB Xavier Rhodes (knee) - were listed Friday as questionable for Sunday's game.

With that, here is some fantasy football news to consider heading into Week 2. He'll need to find other targets besides Antonio Brown, who accounted for over 60 percent of Pittsburgh's yards against Cleveland.

Minnesota was more impressive in a home win over New Orleans.

Zimmer was asked about their shared history and who benefits the most entering Sunday's game against the Steelers at Heinz Field. He caught 12 passes for 88 yards in the last meeting.

I like the Steelers to win at home, but until they get their offense on track, I don't like this spread at all.

Bell had only 47 all-purpose yards last week against the Browns on just 13 touches. Running back Le'Veon Bell had just 10 carries for 32 yards against the Browns.

"I think they're a tremendous defense". Keenum is coming off a season in which he passed for 2,201 yards and nine touchdowns with 11 interceptions for Bradford's former team, the Los Angeles Rams. After all, this was a team that jumped out to a 5-0 start a year ago before injuries and weaknesses start to crop up all over the place. The Vikings' offensive explosiveness is about the improvement (and health) of the offensive line; if that OL can keep Bradford clean in the pocket, the Steelers will be in trouble. Still, one of the losses was by two points to NFC East champion Dallas, and one in overtime against playoff-bound Detroit. But the Vikings' defensive line, which includes backup end Brian Robinson and backup tackle Shamar Stephen, is the strength of the Minnesota defense. Quarterback Sam Bradford was one of the better signal callers of the Week 1 slate.

Against the Steelers, in Week 1, Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer threw for 222 yards on a 20-of-30 completion rate.
