Tonight in Pittsburgh we have a cold weather, defensive battle with the over/under set at 37. The Titans seem to be trending in the right direction with Will Levis at QB, but overall, they have not been a good road team. The rookie QB looked amazing in his first start, but now will have to deal with a defense who generates some of the most pressure in the NFL.

UPDATES: Hopkins is IN

*Deeper GPP Plays In Order*

  1. Connor Heyward – Has taken on the TE1 role and played well.
  2. Kyle Phillips – Slot wide receiver is healthy and earning more playing time.
  3. Allen Robinson – Playing 70% of the snaps mainly in the slot and blocking. Slot corner Roger McCreary is out tonight.
  4. Calvin Austin – The speedster has a handful of plays designed for his skill set in both the run and pass game.
  5. Darnell Washington – 3rd round pick seems to have lost his opportunity with Freiermuth being out, as he moved to third string last week, but Tomlin could be motivating a young player.
๐Ÿ”ฎ Prediction ๐Ÿ”ฎ ย 
  • Steelers 23-20 – I kind of like the over in this one. Both defenses can be beaten with the pass. The Steelers have Diontae Johnson healthy. The Titans and Will Levis looked impressive last week.
๐ŸŽฐ Bets ๐ŸŽฐ (+3.5 units)
  1. Chig Okonkwo OVER 2.5 receptions – 1 unit – He has been more involved in recent weeks and Levis should also be a boost. Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick is out, who contributes to covering tight ends.
  2. Game OVER 37 – 0.5 unit
