Fantasy Tip: It's hard not to like Roethlisberger ($7,700) after last week's performance and the overall year he's having. Miller ($4,500), on the other hand, is a tight end to avoid this weekend. The Chiefs have limited opposing tight ends to just 2.55 fantasy points per game in the last four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: We'd be pretty surprised if Wheaton ($3,000) missed the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. KC has held their own against wide receivers this year, which makes Wheaton a true boom or bust candidate at FantasyScore in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his production this season, so he is not the best option for fantasy owners. Miller costs $4,500 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find a better option.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has thrown for at least 300 yards in each of his last three games and has thrown five touchdowns in that span. Roethlisberger costs $7,700 on FantasyScore but may not be the best option, because he is facing an above average Kansas City Chiefs defense this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley are working very well together this season. With the game on the line late in the fourth quarter in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons, Haley gave Roethlisberger the freedom to decide between two different plays. The fact that Haley didn't insist on a run with just one yard to gain shows how well the relationship between the coordinator and QB is going. Roethlisberger was 12-for-14 for 191 yards on plays in which the Falcons rushed at least five defenders, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Fantasy Tip: That's two straight solid performances for Big Ben. He'll face a Kansas City Chiefs defense in Week 16 that has been pretty solid against opposing quarterbacks this year, though, so it may be tough for him to return handsomely on your investment at FantasyScore.

Pittsburgh Steelers OT Marcus Gilbert (ankle, knee) is expected to return to the starting lineup in Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs. OT Mike X. Adams has played right tackle in place of Gilbert in his absence.

Pittsburgh Steelers LBs Vince Williams and Sean Spence continue to play ahead of rookie LB Ryan Shazier, who played for the first time in Week 15 since suffering a high ankle sprain in November. DE Daniel McCullers even played more snaps (six) than Shazier (four) against the Atlanta Falcons. Also, DE Stephen Tuitt has clearly replaced DE Cam Thomas in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Bell finished with 20 carries for 47 yards and two touchdowns, while adding five receptions for 72 yards on seven targets. He continues to be a fantasy force, even when he doesn't have his best day yardage-wise. The idea of Bell being the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy for 2015 is quickly gaining traction.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in 10 receptions for 123 yards in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons. He set a franchise record for catches in a season with 115, eclipsing the previous mark set by Hines Ward back in 2002 (112).
Fantasy Tip: Brown continues to post ridiculous numbers week in and week out. In FantasyScore he comes with a hefty price tag, but rarely does he have a poor week.
