Bradford expected to play Sunday for Vikings despite knee injury

JuJu Smith Schuster gets first NFL touchdown to extend Steelers lead

So, for the most part, Sunday's regular season opener, in which the Steelers host the Vikings, will be the first chance for Pittsburgh fans to see what the team will look like this season. But the Steelers were able to hold onto the ball for the remainder of the game for the win. He's projected for 260.2 yards, 1.61 touchdowns and 16.2 FanDuel points if he plays in Pittsburgh.

FAST FACTS: Minnesota QB Sam Bradford completed 84.4 percent of his passes for 346 yards, three TDs and no INTs last week.

"I've still got (Friday and Saturday) to get some stuff going", Tuitt said.

Whether it's the sea of black and gold or the sight of thousands of Terrible Towels, the Steelers have carved out a clear home-field advantage over the years.

Much has been made of the revamped Vikings' offensive line.

Pittsburgh said one reason for Bell's usage - he played 43 of the team's 60 offensive snaps - was the number of penalties. Minnesota was an average run defense at best last season while boasting one of the league's best pass defenses. Since the Vikings had only two quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, Sloter will provide insurance.

The Steelers took notice of the Vikings' win over New Orleans.

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs is one player every fantasy owner should consider starting this week against the Steelers.

If Bradford's knee doesn't allow him to play on Sunday, then the Vikings will have to go with veteran backup Case Keenum.

Two defensive starters were also listed as questionable: cornerback Xavier Rhodes (hip) and linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring).

Sloter was given an offer by the Broncos to stick around on the practice squad, but a much better offer by the Minnesota Vikings and potentially a better situation.

"I thought Ben and AB delivered what they are capable of delivering in those moments", Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said.

The Vikings have a pretty good quarterback too, but he's had some knee problems sneak up on him leading into Sunday. We need Bradford healthy this year to accomplish what this team can accomplish and especially considering the work this franchise has done to ensure that Bradford will be able to succeed this year, it'd just be so very bad to lose a guy who finally seems to be living up to that first overall pick/gigantic rookie contract he received back when he was drafted.
