To some, it seemed the Steelers had a bit of a down year defensively last season. But that wasn't really the case. They ranked first overall, allowing the fewest yards in all of football. The Steelers did allow 19.6 points per game, which was up a little but still solid. The pass defense ranked first overall while the rush defense was second, proving to be very good against both styles of offense. Expect more of the same this year with this talented unit that is getting younger with players like Jason Worilds, Jarvis Jones and Ziggy Hood ready to emerge and take their games to a new level. The sack potential for the Steelers should go up with Worilds and Jones in the mix for a lot more playing time. The secondary remains strong with Ike Taylor leading the way. He is a shutdown corner that can help control a passing game. Troy Polamalu has a hard time staying healthy but can still play at a high level when he is on the field, making a difference in both the passing and rushing game. The special teams are alright with Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown likely handling the return duties. Both are capable of some big plays. Fantasy Outlook: Their fantasy numbers weren't very good last year, mainly because they rarely found the end zone. But don't get too down on Pittsburgh. They are still very capable of producing big for fantasy teams. The sack totals should be improved and we would expect a few more scores. And you can't forget the Steelers will do well in limited points and yards. This is a top-five fantasy unit that should be one of the first off the board come draft day.
