Patriots CB Aqib Talib not expected to play Sunday

If this projection by ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss is correct, it'll be good for all of you Antonio Brown @AntonioBrown84 owners out there. Reiss wrote Saturday that he doesn't think cornerback Aqib Talib will play against the Steelers.
"While [Talib] appears to be moving better in practice, perhaps the Patriots would lean toward keeping him out one more week heading into the bye with the big-picture in mind," Reiss wrote.
Talib has missed the past two games due to a strained hip flexor.

Fantasy Analysis:

Talib practiced in pads this week, a step forward from where he was last week. This is a late-afternoon game, but even if Talib plays, you're still starting Brown unless you are absolutely stacked at wide receiver.
