Chris Bennett's analysis of every NFL team's offensive line – with a focus on how it impacts fantasy football.
1. Philadelphia Eagles Good Stability / Good Health
Starters: Halapoulivaati Vaitai (LT), Stefen Wisniewski (LG), Jason Kelce (C), Brandon Brooks (RG), Lane Johnson (RT)
|2017 Offensive Ranks:|
|Rush YPG: 143.3 (2nd)||Sacks Allowed: 28 (T-15th)|
|Pass YPG: 241.8 (14th)||QB Hits Allowed: 78 (T-22nd)|
|Week 14 Opponent: at Los Angeles Rams|
|Rush YPG Allowed: 122.8 (27th)|
|Pass YPG Allowed: 210.6 (9th)|
|Sacks: 38 (3rd)|
Injuries: Jason Peters (knee) I.R.
Backups: (T): Will Beaty (G): Isaac Seumalo, Chance Warmack (C):
Fantasy Impact: A trip to Seattle in Week 13 derailed this offense, largely due to the play of left tackle Halapouilvaati Vaitai, who was finally exposed against a stout pass rusher. The Eagles' offense remains arguably the most balanced in the league, but Vaitai will need to be at his best as the replacement for Jason Peters over the season's final month if the Eagles want to secure home-field for the duration of the playoffs.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers Good Stability / Excellent Health
Starters: Alejandro Villanueva (LT), Ramon Foster (LG), Maurkice Pouncey (C), David DeCastro (RG), Marcus Gilbert (RT)
|2017 Offensive Ranks:|
|Rush YPG: 103.1 (20th)||Sacks Allowed: 16 (T-4th)|
|Pass YPG: 264.5 (4th)||QB Hits Allowed: 45 (3rd)|
|Week 14 Opponent: vs. Baltimore (Sunday night)i|
|Rush YPG Allowed: 112.7 (16th)|
|Pass YPG Allowed: 198.6 (3rd)|
|Sacks: 33 (7th)|
Injuries: Marcus Gilbert (suspension) out
Backups: (T): Jerald Hawkins, Chris Hubbard (G): Matt Feiler (C): B.J. Finney
Fantasy Impact: The Steelers will be without right tackle Marcus Gilbert through Week 15 after he was suspended for a positive drug test for performance-enhancing drugs. The line, specifically as it relates to opening lanes for Le'Veon Bell, has underperformed and need to get going as the weather cools.
