Steelers - two rookie starters on offensive line

The plan is for the Pittsburgh Steelers to use two rookies, OG David DeCastro and OT Mike Adams along the offensive line, starting right away. If they do, they'll have to overcome long odds and, history as well. In the past 45 years, just three rookie offensive lineman have started for the Steelers in the season opener.

Fantasy Analysis:

This could be really big news for the health of Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers offensive line has been dreadful for years and this will keep Ben upright. With the uncertain status with the injury to Rashard Mendenhall, the Steelers may indeed pass the ball more and this will allow Ben more time to find his talented young wide receivers down the field. Roethlisberger could be in for a career best year in yards and touchdowns. Look for big years for Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown as well.
