New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has 24 touchdowns versus three interceptions in 10 career meetings versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, including the playoffs. Over his last five starts against them, he has 17 touchdowns and no interceptions.
Fantasy Tip: Brady has come out of the gates red-hot following his four-game suspension and doesn't appear likely to cool down against the Steelers. Armed with his best supporting cast in years, Brady is a candidate to finish as the top fantasy quarterback virtually every week. Start him.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman likely will be able to play this week and should receive a decent amount of targets. He has not posted great numbers so far this season but can still be considered a No. 3 receiver because of the matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett should be active for the team's Week 7 game and has a favorable matchup this week. He should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis was always best viewed as a lottery ticket for owners with hopes of getting a second-half jolt, and the expectation has long been he could return after the team's Week 9 bye. That is still possible, although it is far from a given. This drama could go on for a little while longer, and New England could still end up ruling him out for the season. Owners in deep leagues should continue to hold, but those in shallow leagues without an IR spot may need to cut bait during the bye-week crunch.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman continues to be a disappointing player for fantasy owners even with Tom Brady back in the lineup. He has not posted more than 38 yards in any of the last four games and still has not scored a touchdown. Edelman could still be a No. 3 receiver in leagues because of the matchup, but owners will be looking for more from him.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett likely will be able to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7 and will continue to be a solid part of the team's passing game. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis is officially eligible to return to practice this week, but James White has performed admirably in his stead as the main passing-down back, so Belichick is probably willing to play this thing out a bit longer. Every indication so far out of New England is that the Patriots are treating Lewis with kid gloves, so a return after the team's Week 9 bye seems likely. Lewis is very much a stash-worthy player for owners hoping a boost right before the fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan suffered a head injury last week and he might have been limited as a result. Wait to see him get back into the four-to-six target range before trusting him again in deeper fantasy leagues.
