Ben Roethlisberger threw for 384 yards and four touchdowns during Sunday's game between the Steelers and the Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ben Roethlisberger threw for 384 yards and four touchdowns to zero interceptions on 36-for-49 passing during Sunday's game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Oakland Raiders. Two of those touchdowns went to Heath Miller in the first quarter. Antonio Brown and Mike Wallace caught the other two scores.

Fantasy Impact: Roethlisberger isn't normally an elite fantasy quarterback option, but he turned in a tremendous game Sunday. He now has eight touchdowns in three games heading into the Steelers' bye week, and should probably be considered a weekly starter in standard fantasy leagues outside of the Rodgers/Brady/Brees triumvirate. Roethlisberger found 10 different receivers on the day.
