Jacoby Brissett: Brissett played a strong game on Sunday versus the jets, completing 22-of-27 passes for 229 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He also added 43 rushing yards, which netted him a QB17 scoring week (15.5 points). 

That is as strong as you can hope for if pressed to start Brissett in QB2 formats. 

Pittsburgh has allowed a QB12 scoring week to Joe Burrow (18.2 points) and a QB20 scoring week to Mac Jones (12.7 points) to open the season, allowing 0.31 passing points per attempt (14th), 6.7 yards per pass attempt (14th), and 10.9 yards per completion (17th).
