Ben Roethlisberger expects to play Sunday, fantasy value returns

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger expects to play on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger expects to play this Sunday, via Mark Kaboly. This is huge news for the Steelers, who will be thrilled to get their franchise QB back.

With Charlie Batch behind center, the team was relying too heavily on the defense. This is perfect timing for Pittsburgh, who is still thinking Super Bowl in December.

Fantasy Implications: This is solid news for Roethlisberger owners as well. Big Ben has a number of dynamic playmakers and has the arm to get them the ball.

Against the San Diego Chargers in Week 14, Roethlisberger could have a huge return. The Chargers have been falling apart and the Steelers need a statement game that says they're competing in the AFC. Monitor his status, but Big Ben should be a viable QB1 this Sunday.
