Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers: Live updates, analysis, game stats for 'Monday Night Football'

Week 8 wraps up with a primetime showdown between the winless Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers (8:15 p.m., ESPN). The Dolphins may be regarded as the bottom feeders of the NFL, but they have been competitive in each of their last two games.

Granted, the combined record of the Dolphins and Steelers is 2-10, but there are implications in this AFC battle savvy fantasy owners can take advantage of. If you’ve given up on consistently starting wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster thanks to the absence of Ben Roethlisberger, this is the game to pull him off the bench.

Mason Rudolph hasn’t lit up the league with his yardage or touchdown tally, but he has only two interceptions and he gets to use Smith-Schuster as a weapon against a Dolphins secondary that has only one interception all season, and has allowed an average of 256.5 passing yards per game along with 16 passing touchdowns in 2019 — the latter being fifth-most in the NFL.

Expect Smith-Schuster to ride his bike all over the tanking Dolphins.
