Cleveland goes into Pittsburgh with an 0-4 record in the division...and one of those losses was to the Steelers just a couple of weeks ago in Cleveland. The Browns are near the bottom in total offense with only 201 points scored on the season, and Pittsburgh won't be a cakewalk (esp. with the Steeler stout rushing D). I think you stay away from the Cleveland running game this week...and with the change to Derek Anderson at QB, things may also be difficult for the Browns passing game. Regardless, TE Kellen Winslow Jr. will continue to catch a half dozen throws and WR Braylon Edwards seems to be finally grooving in the offense...both are risky plays in a pinch, but neither is likely to have a huge game. For Pittsburgh, QB Ben Roethlisberger plays well against Cleveland and I like him here. RB Willie Parker is also a nice play against the Browns and should go for at least 120 combined yards and a score. WR Hines Ward is out...making TE Heath Miller a nice start for leagues requiring a TE. WR Nate Washington should be able to continue where he left off last week in Ward's absence.
