Throwdown Primer – 11/17: Breakdown of Tonight’s Game Boosts!

Welcome to another throwdown, and this one should be interesting – more for its blowout potential than for its ramifications on the NFL playoff picture. Pittsburgh, despite the loss to a horrible Jets team, is still very much in the hunt, and Tennessee is not great. Not a good combination for the Titans.

Ben Roethlisberger – PIT 7x (200)

Even though his team didnt perform against the Jets, Roethlisberger has put up a monster season so far. Unlike the Jets, who’s pass rush and defense isnt horrible, Tennessee is definitely not worth much on the other side of the Ball. I would expect Big Ben to have a BIG game.

Huddle is trying something new tonight with varied numbering on the boosts, and that might factor into some of the value we are going to see in these cards. The number in parentheses is representing the card count.

Verdict: Vital Piece

Antonio Brown – PIT 7x (150)

This could get ugly if Brown can get going. He has 5 catches in every game this year it seems, and with the Tennessee defensive backs being nothing to write home about, Brown has serious potential to go off.

Verdict: Vital Piece

Bishop Sankey – TEN 7x (100)

The one thing that Mr. Sankey Leg has going for him is that he has no other cards in the game. However, the Pitt rush defense has very little room for a huge game, which should be concerning. Similarly, the whole offensive situation in Tennessee is concerning on their own, which is a big issue.

Verdict: Low Priority

Zack Mettenberger – TEN 7x (175)

Another rookie signal caller, Mettenberger has looked the part most of the time he has been in. I dont think he is going to have a break tonight, and that’s no joke. You know things are bad when you have to pick Zack Mettenberger as the GO boost for this game. When you think about it, there is literally no one else. Justin Hunter and Nate Washington both are not making it super easy on him.

Verdict: LOW Priority

Honorable Mentions:

Martavis Bryant (PIT) – Even though he was inactive for the first few weeks, he has emerged as one of the brightest deep threat options on a team that already has Brown.

Le’Veon Bell (PIT) – He hasnt had the best games as of late, but will likely do well tonight.
