Steelers: QB Dennis Dixon (3rd), CB Bryant McFadden, DB Fernando Bryant, RB Najeh Davenport, LB Bruce Davis, T Tony Hills, T Marvel Smith, DE Brett Keisel.
Analysis: RB Willie Parker is active and will play against the Patriots, so it appears he’s safe to start in all fantasy leagues. The Steelers’ defensive backfield will be without Bryant and McFadden, which is good news for Patriots QB Matt Cassel and his receivers.
Patriots: QB Matt Gutierrez, WR Kelley Washington, RB LaMont Jordan, T Wesley Britt, G Billy Yates, TE Tyson DeVree, DE Ty Warren, LB Adalius Thomas.
Analysis: RBs Sammy Morris, Kevin Faulk and Benjarvus Green-Ellis will handle the backfield work with Jordan out. The Patriots defense will be at less than full strength with Warren and Thomas out.
