The Pittsburgh Steelers face the Cleveland Browns in Week 18. As they hope for the pieces to fall into place for a playoff bid, the Steelers will need a win of their own to have a chance. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, January 8.

Should you start Kenny Pickett in NFL DFS in Week 18?

Kenny Pickett has had quite the last two weeks, successfully leading his team to two game-winning drives to come from behind in a row. At $5,000, Pickett is on the lower end of the price range for consistently starting quarterbacks, but he has had a tendency to put together three mediocre quarters and make up for it in the fourth — great for Steelers fans, less great for Pickett fantasy managers.

However, he does well in high-stakes situations, and this game is high-stakes. If you’re looking for a relatively cheap QB, Pickett is a good pick-up. He’s scored a touchdown in each of his last two games and passed for 168 yards last week against the Ravens.
