Big Ben Hurt Again?

The Pittsburgh Steelers provided piles of fantasy intrigue on Sunday as they topped the Oakland Raiders 38-35. Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brownwent nuts in this game, hauling in 17 of 23 targets for 284 receiving yards. Brown was making plays all over the field in his usual fashion, but he capitalized on an enormous target total as Pittsburgh battled with the impressive young Oakland offense. The performance by Brown may be his last major contribution for a few weeks however, as Pittsburgh quarterbackBen Roethlisberger was diagnosed with a foot sprain late on Sunday and will likely miss one or two weeks. Landry Jones will attempt to keep the Steelers’ skill players fantasy-relevant with Roethlisberger on the shelf again, but expect Pittsburgh to use a healthy dose of DeAngelo Williams while Jones in under center.
