Game day update: The Bengals are middle of the pack in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. ESPN projects Ben Roethlisberger to score 17.6 points, which would be his second highest total since Week 10.

After a hot start through the first 10 weeks of this season, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has thrown an interception in four-straight games. Can the veteran gunslinger have a clean game against the Bengals on Sunday? Let’s break it down below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger

Last week against the Buffalo Bills, Roethlisberger had one of his worst games this season. The veteran quarterback completed 21-of-37 passes for 187 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. It was only the second time this season that he has thrown multiple interceptions in a game.

The first time happened in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans, where he had 268 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions. On Sunday, Roethlisberger will be going against a Bengals defense, which he torched in Week 10. In that contest at Heinz Field, he was 27-of-46 for 333 yards, four touchdowns, and zero interceptions.

This season, Cincy’s defense has struggled as they allowed 25 passing touchdowns and 18 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. If you need a streaming option, Roethlisberger might be worth a pickup.
