Ben Roethlisberger went 22-for-42 passing for 285 yards, three touchdowns and one interception during the Steelers' loss to the Chargers on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Ben Roethlisberger went 22-for-42 passing for 285 yards, three touchdowns and one interception during the Pittsburgh Steelers' loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Roethlisberger made his first start since suffering a serious rib injury in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Roethlisberger threw at least three touchdown passes in a game for the third time this season. He now has 20 touchdown passes to five interceptions in 10 games played this season.
Fantasy Impact: Roethlisberger made an immediate return to fantasy relevance, despite the losing effort by the Steelers. He appears to be a safe starting fantasy option going forward. He showed no lasting ill effects from the injury.
