NOTES: The Pittsburgh Steelers undefeated season came to a close last week, as they lost 23-17 against the Washington Football Team. Certain people across the internet are throwing parties over this, as many have called the Steelers imposters as they’ve played bad or weakened teams every game. Regardless, the Steelers can clinch the AFC North division crown with a win and a Cleveland Browns loss. This week will provide the toughest test so far for the Steelers, as the Buffalo Bills are currently leading the AFC East at 9-3. The Steelers have been the best defense (points against) in the NFL thus far, allowing only 211 points. T.J. Watt, prior to the Los Angeles Rams Week 14 game, led the league in sacks with 12. The trio of JuJu Smith-Schuster, Chase Claypool (if he plays), and Diontae Johnson have provided solid fantasy output. Personally, I like Johnson the best.

As mentioned prior, the Buffalo Bills are aiming to be the first team not named the New England Patriots to win the AFC East since 2008, and the franchise’s first time since 1995. Quarterback Josh Allen has been outstanding, as he has a career-high 26 touchdown passes, the most in a season in franchise history since Hall of Famer, Jim Kelly. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs has the fifth-most receiving yards thus far with 1,037. Technically speaking, the Bills can clinch a playoff berth this week, but it’s a complicated scenario. They need a win, a Baltimore Ravens loss, a Miami Dolphins loss, a Las Vegas Raiders loss, and a New England loss. They already have the Patriots loss from Thursday night, so keep an eye out for the rest of them. I would not suggest starting any offensive players for fantasy unless their last name is Diggs or if you’re an Allen owner with no good back-up.
