It was a tough matchup for the entire team against the Ravens, but Smith-Schuster managed to sneak away with eight catches for 37 yards and a touchdown. It was a great performance for PPR leaguers, while it was still very serviceable in standard leagues with the touchdown. He's now finished with 67 yards and/or a touchdown in five of his last six games and looked healthy after dealing with some sort of lower leg injury at the end of Week 11's game. It'll be interesting to see how the Steelers distribute the targets this week knowing Washington has seen an average of just 18.3 wide receiver targets per game, which is the sixth-fewest in the league. That low number comes large in part because of the 31.1 pass attempts per game they see in total. Meanwhile, the Steelers wide receivers are used to splitting a monstrous 27.8 times per game. When targeted, Smith-Schuster will be covered by Jimmy Moreland, who's done a phenomenal job in slot coverage this year. He's allowed just 207 scoreless yards on 38 targets, including just 0.99 yards per snap, which ranks as the 10th-lowest among slot cornerbacks. Smith-Schuster might have it tougher than the other two Steelers receivers this week, making him a high-end WR3.What in the heck happened on Monday night? Hyde out-snapped Carson 41-25 and out-touched him 17-10. In totally unrelated news, Hyde totaled 29 total yards on his 17 touches. -_- Please stop this as soon as possible, Mr. Pete Carroll. Fortunately, Carson was hyper-efficient totaling 59 yards on his 10 touches, including a powerful touchdown run that 95 percent of running backs wouldn't have scored on. This timeshare is a real issue because the Giants have only faced 19.4 running back carries per game, which is the third-fewest in the league. Those carries have netted 4.23 yards per carry, which is slightly below the league average, so they're not a team who's going to allow heavy production on the ground. It is worth noting that a league-high 67 percent of carries inside the five-yard line have resulted as touchdowns against the Giants. If we can get Carson back as the primary pass-catching running back, it' would be a good thing because that's where the production stems from against the Giants. Running backs have been targeted a league-high 22.8 percent of the time against the Giants, and that's led to 12.7 PPR points per game through the air alone, which ranks as the third-highest mark in football. There have been 11 running backs who've caught at least three passes, while seven of them have racked up 35-plus receiving yards. I'm willing to write-off last week's game as them easing Carson back into the lineup, because he's clearly the better running back. You should feel pretty confident playing him as a solid RB2 in this game. Hyde should still have a role but knowing that the Giants have faced just 25.4 running back touches per game, it's tough to see two starter-worthy options out of this backfield. Hyde should be in the high-end RB4 range in case last week wasn't just a fluke.

Smith-Schuster is a little boom / bust, he is a low-upside WR3 in a tough matchup against Washington's 2nd ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
