Ben Roethlisberger has decent game for Steelers, fantasy owners

Ben Roethlisberger helped his team to a win on Sunday, but his stats were so-so. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a decent day throwing the football on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. Roethlisberger led his team to a 30-20 victory, though his stat line was underwhelming when it was all said and done.

Roethlisberger completed 20 of 25 passes for 191 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He didn't do anything to wow fantasy owners, but his lack of incompletions sustained drives and kept the Steelers well in the game. Roethisberger once again found Antonio Brown for five-plus catches, and also put up five completions to both Le'Veon Bell and Emmanuel Sanders.

Fantasy Impact: Roethlisberger definitely hasn't had the best of seasons to this point. He's struggled at times, and the Steelers are essentially out of the playoff race because of it. That said, he's been putting up the raw stats pretty well. He's completed 340 of 525 passes (64.8 percent) for 3,915 yards with 25 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

He's been god to fantasy owners for most of the year, though Sunday's game against the Bengals was forgettable to say the least. More is expected of him at this point.
