interesting.  i read this on fantasypros this week....

 

It was quite the performance for Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen on Monday night, as they combined for 15 receptions for 250 yards and two touchdowns on 18 targets. The Steelers aren’t as easy as the Saints, but they also aren’t scary by any means. The Steelers signed Joe Haden once the Browns cut him and then proceeded to trade away Ross Cockrell, who was arguably their best cornerback in 2016. The toughest matchup here goes to the slot receiver, as William Gay is one of the better slot corners in the game.

So, does Thielen have the better matchup, especially with the volume from Bradford? I would lean towards Bryant, but 1pt PPR has me leaning on Thielen even if he has a tough matchup.

Also from Fantasypros re Bryant:

 

After how badly CB Trae Waynes struggled last week (he was one of the few weak links on the Vikings’ defense in their domination of the Saints), we’re guessing the Vikings want him absolutely nowhere near Antonio Brown, leaving Brown mostly to top CB Xavier Rhodes. Unfortunately, that means Waynes will have to deal with Bryant, who had a horrendous Week 1, catching just 2 of 6 targets for 14 yards. But he got open a number of times, and his timing with Ben Roethlisberger seemed off. That’s not surprising given he basically hasn’t played football in over a year. But now the Steelers are at home, where they’ve typically been significantly better than on the road, and I’m guessing OC Todd Haley will try to get his mercurial young star going.
