Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 245 yards and a touchdown but he also tossed an interception in a 24-17 win against AFC North foe Cincinnati on Sunday. Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall carried the offensive load for Pittsburgh with two touchdowns despite gaining just 44 yards.
It was a below average day fantasy stats-wise for the Steelers QB. Roethlisberger has, as usual, been one of the best fantasy quarterbacks available in 2011. He was averaging almost 300 passing yards per game entering Week 10, and had put together a couple of massive games, with a five-touchdown performance against the Titans and a 369-yard, three-touchdown outing against the Cardinals. If you own Roethlisberger, starting him is imperative.
