The Baltimore Ravens visit the Pittsburgh Steelers at 8:30PM ET on Thursday Oct. 1st
Ben Roethlisberger PIT QB is out and Mike Vick QB is starting for Steelers.
Sure, Vick may light it up tonight, but I wouldn’t necessarily count on it against a 0-3 and desperate for a win, Raven team……
It does looks like Baltimore Offensive Coordinator M. Trestman really wants to throw the ball more than run it, so J Flacco QB and S Smith WR could have big nights.
I normally don’t like playing a lot of guys on Thursday start fantasy contests unless you can be absolutely sure it will be a high scoring, back and forth game.
Currently, the Vegas line is BAL -2.5 at PIT (44 under).
I’m thinking with just using one or two “safe plays” tonight and loading my line ups with Sunday and Monday players.
Don’t use everyone possible tonight and hope to coast on to a easy Fantasy win on Monday Night — that doesn’t work!
Here are the safer plays, I think you should be targeting tonight.
