It’s another week for fantasy football owners, and some of you may have some tough decisions to make from a defensive standpoint.

A lot of fantasy football owners do like to carry two D/ST (defense/special teams) for match-up purposes. If you’re one of those, and has the Ravens as one of them, then it’s recommended you start them against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers offensive line has been hit with injuries right and left, all season long. Their most recent hit came from last week’s game against the Cleveland Browns, where their newly acquired left tackle Levi Brown suffered a season-ending triceps injury in warm ups.

The Ravens defense has done a great job with getting after the quarterback, this year. They rank number two in the league in sacks with 22 sacks. 15 of those sacks, alone, come from Terrell Suggs, Elvis Dumervil, and Arthur Jones.

It’s hard to imagine that those three don’t have a field day against second and third string offensive lineman for the Steelers on Sunday.
