The Pittsburgh Steelers (11-1) will look to rebound from their first loss of the season on the road in Week 14 against the surging Buffalo Bills (9-3) on Sunday Night Football. Both teams have fantasy options that will warrant consideration from managers.

If you need help with your fantasy football lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for the Week 14 Steelers-Bills showdown.

Eric Ebron Fantasy

Start Eric Ebron, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers: Eric Ebron is one of the more dependable fantasy options, and he's in for an especially great matchup against Bills this week. Buffalo is allowing the 13th-most passing yards per game (249.5) and the fifth-most fantasy points per game to TEs (15.94). Ebron should figure prominently into Pittsburgh's pass-happy attack in this one, putting him in position to rack up his fourth straight game with double-digit fantasy points.

Devin Singletary Fantasy

Start Devin Singletary, RB, Buffalo Bills: Devin Singletary should be the Bills running back you start this week. He accounted for 83 yards from scrimmage last week as the Bills' lead back, seeing 22 opportunities (18 rushes plus 4 targets). Singletary has scored 11+ PPR points in back-to-back games, and seems like he has re-established himself as Buffalo's lead back. He should be a rock-solid FLEX option in Week 14, though the tough matchup with Pittsburgh does hurt his ceiling.

Benny Snell Fantasy

Sit Benny Snell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers: Second-year running back Benny Snell earned starter reps in Weeks 12 and 13 with lead back James Conner sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols. However, Snell didn't offer much on the field or in fantasy. He recorded 93 yards from scrimmage in Week 12, but followed that up with just 10 total yards in Week 13. This could've been the opportunity for Snell to earn himself a larger role. Instead, with Conner returning this week following his two-game absence, Snell is an immediate drop.

Zack Moss Fantasy

Sit Zack Moss, RB, Buffalo Bills: Midway through the season, it looked like Zack Moss was finally emerging as Buffalo's lead back. However, that development took a major step back in Week 13, when Moss fumbled and was effectively benched in favor of Devin Singletary after just 3 carries. The Bills' RB situation is hard to navigate, with Moss and Singletary hurting each other's production, but it appears Singletary has the edge for now. Against a Pittsburgh defense that is allowing the third-fewest fantasy points per game to RBs this season (17.87), it's too much of a risk to start Moss here.
