It hasn’t been the most exciting year for Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. However, he is, at least, getting the job done with a myriad of short throws and still putting up enough fantasy points to be worthy of your lineup in most outings. Last week, he had a pair of touchdowns and 305 yards in a surprising upset loss to Washington. But he’s got the chance to put up better numbers this week against the Bills.
Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger
Roethlisberger has thrown multiple touchdowns in six of his last seven games, and he’s had more than 300 passing yards in three of those outings thanks to an amazing supporting cast that excels at getting yards after the catch.
The concern here is the interceptions. He’s thrown one pick in each of his last three games. And while the Bills have been someone generous to opposing passers (Nick Mullens of the 49ers had 316 yards and three touchdowns last week) they have six interceptions in their last four games.
Roethlisberger is a QB2 this week, but know that he does come with some risk.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Ben Roethlisberger.
