Here are some of the Patriots' fantasy football options this week:
QB Tom Brady has a four-game average against the Steelers of 348 yards, 2.3 TDs and 0.5 interceptions. As always, he's a must-start.
RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis faces a Steelers "D" that's allowing 135 yards and one TD per game to RBs, making BJGE a quality flex back with upside.
WR Wes Welker is likely to have a great game as the Steelers' best cornerback, Ike Taylor, won't match up with him. Welker's easily a No. 1 fantasy receiver.
TE Rob Gronkowski had three touchdowns on five receptions in last year's 39-26 victory over the Steelers. He isl a No. 1 fantasy tight end.
TE Aaron Hernandez has led the team in targets the past two games. If the Steelers focus on Gronkowski, Hernandez could get some extra looks. He's a No. 1 fantasy TE, too.
