Week 2
Facing a Raiders team on a short week while traveling cross country, this looked like a great matchup for an elite defense. In addition, Las Vegas was without both starting guards and RB Josh Jacobs, so the matchup was even juicer. However, CB Joe Haden was a late scratch and T.J. Watt left this game early with a groin injury. Aside from a sack by Watt and another by Melvin Ingram, the Steelers were unable to generate a takeaway and gave up 26 points.

Although they have been an excellent defense that creates a lot of pressure on opposing QBs, they have significant depth issues. And when injuries strike, they tend to fall off in terms of fantasy production. If Watt has to miss extended time, that would be a major issue, as the team would be without their best pass rusher.

The Steelers have promoted QB coach Matt Canada to OC. The 48-year-old had been in that previous role for just 1 season, spending the rest of his coaching career in the college ranks. Canada had 9 different OC stints, most recently with LSU in 2017 and Maryland in 2018. Those teams ranked 76th and 69th, respectively, in points per game.

The Steelers are parting ways with OC Randy Fichtner, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Fichtner has been with the team since 2007, taking over as OC in 2018. The Steelers offense struggled mightily down the stretch this season, averaging just 22.1 points and 347 yards over the final 7 games. There were also whispers of a bit of a power struggle between Fichtner and QB Ben Roethlisberger. We'll see who the Steelers tab as their next OC -- and if Roethlisberger returns for 2021.

The Steelers will rest OLB T.J. Watt and DE Cameron Heyward for Sunday's finale against the Browns, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. This is why you don't play season-long fantasy into Week 17: IDP Edition.

In pushing back this week's Ravens-Steelers game to Wednesday, the league has also pushed back the Week 13 start times for each team. Pittsburgh will now face Washington at 5 p.m. ET on Monday. Baltimore will host Dallas at 8:05 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Both should remain inside Week 13 fantasy scoring without issue at those times.

The NFL has postponed the Ravens-Steelers game once again. The game is now set to kick off at 3:40 p.m. ET Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'd assume it will actually happen, barring further COVID issues for either team. Whether the game will still count for Week 12 fantasy football scoring will likely depend on which league-hosting site you use.
