QB - PIT
Week 13 Outlook
Freed from the playcalling of Matt Canada, who was fired as Pittsburgh's offensive coordinator last week, Pickett looked like a different quarterback in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Bengals, completing 24-of-33 passes for 278 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. The Steelers averaged an impressive 6.2 yards per play vs. Cincinnati. No, we're not engraving Pickett's Hall of Fame bust yet, but it was an encouraging performance from a QB who's struggled for most of the season. The fact that it came immediately after Canada's ouster gives us plausible hope that Pickett can be a useful streamer down the stretch. He gets a friendly matchup this week against a Cardinals defense that entered Week 12 having allowed the ninth-most fantasy points per game (18.6) to quarterbacks.
