Ben Roethlisberger throws 3 TDs in fantasy return

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Roethlisberger has some solid matchups to close out the regular season. Games against the Dallas Cowboys (Week 15) and Cleveland Browns (Week 17) could be boons for fantasy owners.
