Antonio Brown The Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders are both adapting to this new style of NFL.

Both teams historically established the runfirst then looked to pass second.

With the new way of the NFL which almost seems to be pass first then turn to run, the Steelers and Raiders are both leaning more towards that trend as well.

Through two weeks the Raiders have looked terrible, losing to the San Diego Chargers and then getting blown out by the Miami Dolphins.

The Steelers have looked much better this season and should come away an easy victory.

Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1): Ben Roethlisberger is off to a decent start to the season as he already has 520 yards passing with two touchdowns. A very, very friendly match-up this week, Roethlisberger can be a nice plug n' play.

Rashard Mendenhall will still not be in Week 3 action. Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman split carries too much to be trusted as a good start.

Antonio Brown, last season's team MVP, is looking to repeat that again this year and will have another solid week. Mike Wallace has not missed a beat this season after a long holdout, another good start here due to match-up. Emmanuel Sanders needs an injury above him to become more relevant.

Heath Miller is a good tight end but fantasy-wise there are still better options.

Good starts: Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger

Middle of the road: Emmanuel Sanders

Bad starts: Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman, Heath Miller

 

Oakland Raiders (0-2): Carson Palmer was quietly third in league in passing yards with 670 yards. Fantasy-wise he has bee good, especially if you are in a yardage league. This week however is not a great match-up and your expectations need to be tempered.

Darren McFadden has struggled significantly in the new zone-blocking scheme. It is more a combination of a new offensive scheme and a not so good offensive line that is responsible for McFadden's slow start. A tough defense this week could spell another tough Week 3 for McFadden.

Darrius Heyward-Bey and Denarius Moore are two wideouts that make for good WR3 starts week in and week out.

Brandon Myers, an unknown tight end option before the season ,now leads the Raiders in receptions (11).

Good starts: Darren McFadden

Middle of the road: Darrius Heyward-Bey, Denarius Moore

Bad starts: Carson Palmer, Brandon Myers
