Mendenhall has been a staple to my fantasy football team all year despite his recent lack of offensive production (fantasy wise). Now I am in the play-offs and my workhorse is playing against a tough match-up. The question is do I play Mendenhall and give him the faith I have all season or do I play LaGarette Blount?

How does everybody think Mendenhall will do this week against that stingy Jets D?

I really do believe the Steelers need to be successful on the ground to beat the Jets. Mendenhall's production over the last two weeks have not been great, so look for the Steelers to try to pound the rock with a head of steam. Mendenhall is capable of having 100 in this one in a sloppy field more than likely. Gotta start Mendy, esp when he's in a recent funk.

With our OL, bad play calling and RM tippy toe, stutter and spin
moves, and the Jets' D - not good. 50 yards, zero TDs.

i will reserve judgement until all our o-line is back healthy with our center, then we will see how good our o-line really is (next season)

i have Mendenhall and he is on my bench. our line has given him nothing to work with the entire 2nd half of the year and i doubt this will be much different. i see him getting around 55 yards and probably a TD but thats only 11 point
