Ben Roethlisberger a risky starter in Week 3
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger might be a quarterback to avoid in Week 3 at Carolina.

Roethlisberger is off to another slow start for the second year in a row with 24 Fantasy points combined in his first two games against Cleveland and Baltimore. Last year, Big Ben had 25 points in his first two outings against Tennessee and Cincinnati before getting 20 points against Chicago at home.

A similar situation could unfold this week against the Panthers, but Carolina was able to contain Matthew Stafford in Week 2 and should have similar success against Roethlisberger. The Panthers have a 10-game streak of not allowing a quarterback to score multiple touchdowns, which extends back to Week 14 in 2012, including matchups with Matt Ryan, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Stafford and Russell Wilson.

Roethlisberger will face a heavy pass rush in this game, and he is not a recommended starting option in most formats. 

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Sit Heath Miller in Week 3
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Like Kyle Rudolph, we're waiting and still anticipating a quality season for Heath Miller.

But he's been dreadful for Fantasy owners thus far with three Fantasy points combined against the Browns and Ravens.

The Panthers haven't allowed multiple passing touchdowns in their past 10 home games. So if Ben Roethlisberger connects with Antonio Brown or Markus Wheaton, Miller could be in trouble.

It does help his cause that Carolina allowed nine touchdowns to opposing tight ends last season, but until Miller straightens out his production we can't recommend him in the majority of leagues.

Ben Roethlisberger still hurting from 'significant shot'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Tuesday he's still hurting from the illegal hit he received from Ravens linebacker Courtney Upshaw last Thursday, reports Steelers Depot. The hit, which drew a roughing-the-passer flag, occurred on Pittsburgh's first possession.

"I lost my breath instantly and remember hitting the ground thinking, 'Boy, that hurt a lot,'" Roethlisberger said in a radio interview about Upshaw burying himself into the quarterback's chest. "I kind of pride myself on not taking those big hits, but I sure as heck didn't see it coming."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Roethlisberger was hurting the rest of the game. "That was a significant shot, but that comes with the territory and that's something that he's embraced over the years," the coach said.

He has nine tackles through two games.
