    Steelers QB Kenny Pickett suffered a bone bruise in his knee during last week’s loss and their offense as a whole has been subpar. Meanwhile, Lamar Jackson is coming off a huge day in which he found Mark Andrews in the end zone twice as the Ravens put the hurt on the Browns. The next installment of a bitter rivalry is set for what could put the Ravens way ahead of the pack in the AFC North, or see the Steelers tied for the lead.

    Main Storylines to Watch

    Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews: A match made in heaven? Lamar Jackson is the fantasy QB4 on the year after the quarter point of the season and Mark Andrews is TE1. Andrews missed Week 1 and had a quiet Week 3, but still is ahead of pack. Will this stack continue to dominate and pay off for fantasy managers who took an early onesie stack?

    Can we trust any Pittsburgh players? The Steelers offensive weapons have been lackluster so far to say the least. The QBs, RBs, WRs and TEs have all failed to produce up to ADP. Granted, Diontae Johnson has been on IR for an extended period and Pat Freiermuth just went down last week. It seems a weak offensive line and substandard QB play has held back all position groups so far, can they rebound and prove valuable for fantasy?
