Pittsburgh Steelers versus Cincinnati Bengals NFL Real Money Fantasy Preview 12-13-2015
A good one is scheduled from the AFC North division as the Cincinnati Bengals will be hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fantasy football draft GM’s can tune to CBS TV on Sunday December 13th to track the results of the DFS roster picks.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off an impressive offensive performance on Sunday night as they crushed the Indianapolis Colts last week by the score of 45-10. The team has scored 30 or greater points in four straight games. Their first meeting this year with the Bengals resulted in a 16-10 loss at home. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 262 yards and a touchdown but had three picks in defeat. On the other side Andy Dalton passed for 231 yards and a touchdown but had two interceptions. Each team was 1 of 3 inside the red zone. The Steelers have really improved their offensive play since. Scoring 30 points at Seattle on November 29th was impressive offensively but it was just unfortunate that the team gave up 39 points to the Seahawks.
Cincinnati has shown offensive spark as well by tallying 31 or greater points in three straight and four of their past five games. The lone exception came on a short week as they lost a 10-6 decision at Houston on a Thursday night game.
Here is the Fantasy Football Pick
Pittsburgh Steelers QB:
Ben Roethlisberger is putting up some impressive numbers again. He has good chemistry with his receiving corps. They throw a lot since the team has not had the success running the football in recent seasons like the Bengals. Cincinnati is a bit more balanced on offense. But in fantasy you want to take advantage of the point potential out of players who play on teams that have a high ratio of pass versus run or vice versa when isolating a running back. Big Ben is hitting on 66% of his throws for 2707 yards with 15 touchdowns and 9 picks. Last week he had four touchdown passes against the Indianapolis Colts with 364 yards passing.
Atlanta Falcons versus Carolina Panthers NFL Fantasy Preview 12-13-2015

Here are the NFL Fantasy Picks for your Real Money League
Play Carolina Panthers defense
Carolina at a perfect 12-0 has already clinched the NFC South division and is looking to stay ahead of Arizona for home field throughout the NFC playoffs. The Atlanta Falcons enter play with a mark of 6-6 and is in the hunt for a wildcard berth. Carolina has been an outstanding defensive team. They rank 3rd in the league in total defense by allowing 314 yards per game. They are seventh against the pass and second against the run. After early season success the Atlanta offense has become stagnant. They have been held to under 20 points in two straight and three of their past four games. Look for the Carolina defense to tighten up after giving up some big plays to a dynamic New Orleans offense on the road last week.
Carolina Panthers TE:
With the injuries to the Panthers receiving corps during training camp it was tight end Greg Olsen now leading the team with 62 catches for 917 yards and six touchdowns. He is averaging a career best 14.8 yards per catch on the year. The option run game the Panthers run has frozen linebackers giving Olsen space to operate in the passing game.
