Peyton Hillis has been one of the best free-agent pickups of the 2010 fantasy football season, but owners with running back depth should consider benching him this week.
Not only is he less than 100 percent — Hillis was held out of Thursday’s practice with an injured thigh — but he also faces a Steelers defense that’s allowing an average of fewer than nine fantasy points per game to runners.
What’s more, the Browns will be starting rookie quarterback Colt McCoy with Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme both nursing high ankle sprains.
That means an already beaten-up Hillis is going to see stacked fronts and plenty of attention from the Steel Curtain.
