Also factoring in is that I've gone over Winslow's production historically against the Steelers and it isnt great.
This is the kind of choice that makes fantasy so hard. Your logic is sound--in terms of match-ups and game plans, Fasano is the one to pick. However, against all these odds, Winslow is still the one with the talent to blow up and give you a that elite game that will win you the week. It's that kind of potential that would make me choose Winslow: I'd rather choose a guy who could give me between 2 and 30 points (Winslow) than a guy who ranges between 7 and 15 (Fasano). I go with Kellen here.
Another way to think about it: I'd rather regret leaving Fasano's 15 points on the bench than pull my hair out over missing out on Winslow's 30-point explosion.
