Ben Roethlisberger active and back on the fantasy radar

Rob Carr

Ben Roethlisberger (ribs, shoulder) will make his return against the Chargers on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (ribs, shoulder) is officially active and will play in Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. Big Ben sat out the last three games after suffering a dangerous rib injury against the Ravens. He was trying to play last week, but it didn't happen after struggling in practice.

Charlie Batch started the last two games, taking over after Byron Leftwich went down.

Fantasy Impact: Even if he's not 100%, Ben is a big boost to the fantasy stock of Pittsburgh's offense. Antonio Brown is also back, and should be starting in all leagues during the fantasy playoffs.

Ben is a fine QB2 play for the rest of the season as the Steelers fight for a playoff spot.
