Dolphins defense facing surging Steelers
Earlier in the season, a matchup against the Steelers might not have been the worst news for the Fantasy owner of a DST unit with Pittsburgh on the schedule. Unfortunately, the Steelers are rolling in recent weeks, which makes the
Opposing DST units racked up double digits in Fantasy scoring in seven of the first eight games of the season against the Steelers, averaging 14.8 points per game. In four games since, however, the Steelers have turned the ball over just once and are averaging 26.8 points per game, making them a much less attractive matchup.
Each of the Steelers' last four opponents have failed to reach even nine Fantasy points in a matchup against them, while averaging just 3.8 per game. The Dolphins have been decent on defense this season, but probably aren't worth your time as a starter in Week 14.

Steelers could be worth risk in Week 14
The Dolphins offense has held its own over the last two weeks, but opposing DST units have still racked up double figures in Fantasy scoring in eight of 12 games this season. The Dolphins enter Sunday's matchup allowing 9.6 Fantasy points per game to DST's, largely thanks to a a league-high 45 sacks allowed, as well as a bottom-10 scoring offense.
Given their poor performance this season, the Steelers should certainly be considered a risky option for Fantasy owners. However, our trio of Fantasy experts all have the Steelers among the 10-best Fantasy options at DST this week, so they might be worth a roll of the dice.

Heath Miller looking to end scoreless streak
The Dolphins have struggled against tight ends this season, especially when it comes to keeping them out of the end zone. Two of the team's last three opponents have had tight ends score, and the position has found the end zone eight times against Miami, the fifth-highest total in the league.
Opposing tight ends are racking up 10.0 Fantasy points per game against Miami's defense; only two defenses have been worse this season. Fantasy owners looking for a player with upside for Week 14 could do worse than Miller.

Charles Clay facing very tough matchup Sunday
Only two defenses allow fewer Fantasy points to opposing tight ends than the Steelers, at 5.50 per game. Only one individual tight end has topped 10 Fantasy points against this defense, and they have held their opponents' tight ends out of the end zone in three straight games.
Clay has been extremely useful for Fantasy purposes this season, as he enters Week 14 ranked eighth in Fantasy points for the season. Unfortunately, against this type of matchup, you might be better served looking for a more favorable matchup for Week 14.
Brandon Browner turns down reduced suspension
Browner, who is currently appealing the suspension, was offered a deal that would have reduced his suspension by about three months, allowing him to return to the field next October. The appeals process it likely to take another few weeks, though it isn't clear when Browner would even be healthy enough to play at this point.

Saints DST a risky option in Week 14
The Saints have scored at least 11 Fantasy points in a standard league in all six home games, which is impressive. But they do have four games this season with single digits in points, and the Panthers are a tough opponent.
Only five DST options have reached double digits in Fantasy points against the Panthers and just one in the past three weeks. Cam Newton should be able to make plays against the Saints, and we'd only consider the Saints DST a starting option in deeper formats.

Jimmy Graham looks to keep rolling
Graham has scored in consecutive games against the Falcons and Seahawks, and he's reached double digits in Fantasy points in nine of 11 games this season. The Panthers have allowed five touchdowns to opposing tight ends and four have reached double digits in Fantasy points.
Graham also has a great history against the Panthers with double digits in Fantasy points in five consecutive games. He has four touchdowns over that span and two games with 100-plus yards.
