Baltimore Ravens Fantasy News & Notes

Terrell Suggs (knee) is questionable for Week 4 against the Steelers. Suggs didn't practice Friday due to a knee injury. Although a Friday DNP is typically concerning, we fully expect the soon to be 36-year-old to take the field in an important divisional matchup against the Steelers in primetime.

Pittsburgh Steelers Fantasy News & Notes

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Steelers are "actively shopping" holdout RB Le'Veon Bell. Initially, the Steelers were just "listening" on offers for Bell, but now they're the ones making calls. Per Rapsheet, the Steelers are looking for at least a second-round pick and a "good player" in exchange for Bell. That's a high asking price for a rental, especially considering Bell can't negotiate an extension until after the season. James Conner will continue to serve as Pittsburgh's workhorse with Bell MIA.

Prediction

These games are notorious for being close and this matchup tonight figures to be as well. That said, I firmly believe the Ravens are the better team. They certainly have the better defense and Alex Collins remains an underrated back that ripped Pittsburgh a year ago. The Steelers are also coming off a short week in which they traveled to Tampa, nearly blew a 20-point halftime lead and then had to come back to Pittsburgh with limited days to rest and prepare. I wouldn't be surprised if the Ravens win outright but I'll gladly take the field goal.
