Ben Roethlisberger went 21-for-30 passing for 216 yards, two touchdowns and an interception during the Steelers' win over the Giants on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ben Roethlisberger went 21-for-30 passing for 216 yards, two touchdowns and an interception during the Pittsburgh Steelers' win over the New York Giants on Sunday. Roethlisberger connected with Emmanuel Sanders and Mike Wallace for his two scores.

Roethlisberger has yet to be held without a touchdown pass this season. He has five touchdown passes over his last two games. His passing yardage was his lowest of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Roethlisberger didn't have a monster fantasy performance, but his pair of scoring tosses turned what could have been a dud performance into a steady outing. He has been consistent throughout the season, with a 384-yard, four-touchdown game in Week 3 representing his lone big outburst of fantasy points.

Roethlisberger is a serviceable starter in standard formats, and is certainly helping owners who were able to stockpile talent at skill positions by selecting him late in fantasy drafts. You could do better, obviously, but then again there are plenty of worse options, too.
