Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Big Ben returned to the lineup this past week against the Chargers and seemed unfazed from his bout with COVID as he threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions. He was credited with 3 Turnover Worthy Plays by Pro Football Focus, but he managed to avoid any and the Steelers' offense was humming on Sunday night. The Chargers are a traditionally tough defense for opposing QBs though and it was encouraging to see Ben put up his highest fantasy point total of the season. Looking ahead to Week 12, he has another tough matchup on paper against the Bengals defense that's allowing just 18.9 fantasy points per game to opposing QBs. However, based on what we saw last week, Roethlisberger can be considered as a low-end QB2 against Cincinnati.
