Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Tannehill has been a touchdown-scoring machine thus far. He's tossed 13 of them, and he's often had to do so without some of his best offensive weapons. While he'll finally have the whole band back together this week, the matchup is not a good one for him -- Pittsburgh has one of the best defenses against the pass in the league. Tannehill isn't a complete fade for me, but he's a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 in a matchup like this. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Tanny has gone for 8 TDs to just one INT over the last two weeks while averaging nearly 300 passing yards in the process. It's becoming increasingly dangerous to bet against him, and even in a tough matchup with Pittsburgh, he's a high-end QB2 with upside. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We now have a 15-game sample size with Tannehill as the starter of the Titans, and he's scored 17.9 or more fantasy points in 13 of them, including 26.7 or more points in three of his last four games. He's a stable high-floor quarterback who continually breaks efficiency. Can he keep it up against the Steelers? Teams have chosen to drop back and pass on 66.3 percent of plays against them, which is the highest percentage in the league. They've also not had too much luck, as the 58.5 percent completion-rate is the second-lowest mark in the league. They've also sacked the opposing quarterback on 12.3 percent of dropbacks, which is flat-out ridiculous, as no other team is over 9.3 percent. This is particularly worrisome because Tannehill just lost his starting left tackle Taylor Lewan for the season. With that being said, the Steelers have allowed 4-of-5 quarterbacks throw for at least 258 yards and two touchdowns against them. It also helps that Tannehill has been the best quarterback in the league under pressure, boasting a 110.5 QB Rating when he's under duress, which has been 27.6 percent of the time. It's safe to say Derrick Henry is going to have trouble moving the ball against this Steelers defense, which should put more of the load on Tannehill's shoulders, though we haven't seen a quarterback finish as a top-12 option against them since Week 11 of last year. Because of that, Tannehill should be considered a high-end QB2 who seemingly always outperforms expectations.It appears that Wentz has found a new way to score fantasy points on a consistent basis. Over his last five games, he's rushed for at least 37 yards in three of them while scoring a rushing touchdown in four of them. Because of that, he's now scored at least 17.4 fantasy points in each of his last four games. It's a bit concerning that he's still yet to throw for more than 270 yards in a game this year, but we'll take fantasy points where we can get them. It is worth noting that the Giants have allowed a league-low 3.7 fantasy points on the ground to quarterbacks this year. They have allowed a 70.8 percent completion-rate this year, which ranks as the fourth-highest mark in football, which obviously bodes well for Wentz considering his lackluster 58.7 percent completion-rate this year. The Giants have had a better pass rush than most expected, as they're near the middle of the league in all pressure-related stats, including their 6.88 percent sack-rate. They've faced just 33.7 pass attempts per game, as the lack of strength on offense has not pressured teams into throwing the ball a whole lot. Because of that, we've seen limited fantasy output, as just one quarterback (Ben Roethlisberger) has finished as a top-15 option against them. In fact, since that Week 1 game against the Steelers, the Giants secondary has allowed just six passing touchdowns over five games. Knowing Wentz will be without Miles Sanders, Zach Ertz, and Dallas Goedert, it's tough to say he's a strong streaming option. Consider him just a mid-to-low-end QB2.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Right now, it's hard to find a QB who is playing better over the past few weeks than Tannehill. The Steelers are generally a pretty stingy defense, but with the way Tannehill has looked recently, it would be very hard to bench him. Plug him into your lineup as a low-end QB1.Wentz has looked terrible through the first portion of the season, but he continues to be effective for fantasy. Even though Wentz was able to put up great numbers through garbage time production, you should never want to rely on that when considering a streaming QB. This is a fine matchup for Wentz, but he's a mid-range QB2 at best.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Steelers are 9th against fantasy quarterbacks, but now they have to deal with the loss of Devin Bush Jr. I would treat Tannehill as more of a QB2 this week than a QB1.
