NFL Week 4 Regular Season
Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin
Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada said the team will "stick with what we're doing" headed into their Week 4 game against the Packers. Canada, under siege in his first year as Pittsburgh's OC, conceded that sticking to what the offense is doing is "not the sexy answer but we believe we're on the right track." Ben Roethlisberger has somehow looked more washed up than he did in 2020 and Pittsburgh's offense is among the worst, least efficient units in the league through three weeks. The Steelers have the fifth fewest points in the NFL and are dead last in rushing yards after using their first round draft pick on Najee Harris. Roethlisberger's 6.16 yards per attempt is the NFL's eighth lowest. There's little hope the Steelers can turn it around this year. They're much closer to a total rebuild than a Super Bowl run. Harris and Diontae Johnson should be able to keep their fantasy value intact due to pass volume in a lost season.

Aaron Jones (ankle) was removed from the Week 4 injury report. The Packers limited Jones in practice but his status was never in doubt. Jones has averaged 22 touches and over 100 total yards with five touchdowns the past two games. AJ Dillon (back) also had his practice reps limited this week but isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game with the Steelers.
