The Baltimore Ravens will host the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, their first of two regular season matchups. And it should be one of the more enjoyable games on the schedule for Week 8, one with playoff reverberations we’ll be talking about at the end of the year. It’s also got a lot of really good fantasy players in action, including Steelers quarterback Ben Roethisberger.

Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger

Already a near lock for comeback player of the year, Roethlisberger has 1,446 yards and 13 touchdowns to go with just four picks. He probably played his worst game of the season last week against the Titans, throwing three of his four interceptions, but still managing a pair of touchdowns and 268 yards on 49 attempts, a season-high.

This week’s game is a little trickier because the Ravens do have one of the league’s better defenses. One thing to note, however, is that they’ve only managed three interception all season. The Ravens did let Carson Wentz of the Eagles throw two touchdowns in a near comeback effort two weeks ago, and Patrick Mahomes found the end zone four times back in Week 3.
