Pittsburgh Steelers Fantasy Spin

Mason Rudolph completed 22-of-38 targets 242 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Rams. Rudolph received a lot of help from his defense, who scored a touchdown and held the Rams to zero offensive points, but the young quarterback deserves some credit for not turning the ball over outside of the bad snap, which wasn't really his fault. Rudolph's lone touchdown was a strike to James Washington in the corner of the end zone, and the rest of the game was quite forgettable. Rudolph now has 11 touchdowns to four interceptions as the Steelers' game manager. He'll look to grab another win against the Browns on the road next week.

Cleveland Browns Fantasy Spin

Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said Kareem Hunt will "continue to get opportunities." "He's a good football player, he did really good for his first time back, and he'll continue to get opportunities," Kitchens said. Hunt was surprisingly in on 38-of-69 offensive snaps in his Browns debut, being featured on the field alongside Nick Chubb on 43 percent of Cleveland's plays. A massive part of the game plan, Hunt's nine targets finished behind only Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry. Even if his role stays the same moving forward, Hunt has immediately established himself as a PPR FLEX for the rest of the season.

Pittsburgh

The Steelers are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.

Cleveland

The Browns have covered the spread in six of their last eight appearances on Thursday night.

NFL Week 11 Prediction

The Browns knocked off the Bills last week as a 3-point favorite but I don’t know why they’re favored tonight. The Steelers have one of the top pass-rushes in the NFL and the Browns have struggled in pass protection virtually all season. There’s a reason why Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry aren’t putting up big numbers every week despite their talent. Baker Mayfield has not been protected like he was a year ago and he has struggled under pressure. When he does have time to throw, he doesn’t throw with anticipation or accuracy. The underdog is 3-1-1 against the spread in the last five meetings while the Steelers are also 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall.
