Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers – $12,053: The trip across the ocean is a little concerning, but that is about it. The price is right and the Vikings are a fantasy dreamland for QBs. Roethlisberger looked good airing it out last week too. Stevan Ridley’s price is low and his upside is pointing straight up. Alfred Morris, Washington Redskins – $11,430: The Raiders aren’t going to be able to slow down a motivated Washington offense and Alfred Morris has a nose for pay dirt. He has yet to be special, but this is a huge game for the Redskins and he’ll be a factor. Trent Richardson, Indianapolis Colts – $10,824: His prices aligns with a healthy Ahmed Bradshaw, so you have to take him. The discount, in addition to the fabulously favorable matchup means he’ll be on a lot of rosters, so you’ll beat up on anyone who doesn’t select him. DeMarco Murray, Dallas Cowboys – $11,747: The Coybows are a completely different offense when they establish the run, so expect that to be their first priority this week on the road. Murray catches a few balls out of the backfield too and is reasonably priced. Stevan Ridley, New England Patriots – $6,999: Take the discount and pad the rest of your lineup. Ridley is more than due and there will be a lot of scoring. He has disappointed and might be overlooked this week, don’t be that guy. A score more than rewards the investment.

This is likely to be a shootout, Jay Cutler’s play is on the rise and Marshall is the team’s best receiver. He could approach 10 catches, score and his price is low. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints – $9,799: It is about time for one of those 200 yard, 2 TD games from Colston. With Lance Moore banged up and something to prove on Monday Night Football, look for the Saints to make a statement. Colston is due.

The Broncos have been beaten up by the Tight End this season too and Celek is always a threat to score. Draft Street Week 4 Picks: Defense & Special Teams Kansas City Chiefs – $5,672: The Giants are an absolute mess and enter the unfriendly confines of Arrowhead Stadium, Middle America with a broken down Offensive Line. The Chiefs boast plenty of play-makers on defense and will swallow the Gaints offense.

Per NFL rules, it is still legal to horse-collar a quarterback while he is in the pocket.
In March of 2012, the Steelers unsuccessfully...

“Right now, you could say we’re the worst team in the league, and that hurts,” said Roethlisberger, via NFL.com. “And as a competitor, you don’t like that.”
Big Ben still has some hope despite their 0-4 record.
“I just have to hope and believe we can turn...

0-3? Yeah, it’s not a mistake. And it is very hard to believe.
Rather than expecting these Pittsburgh Steelers to elevate their game and to play at a high level, maybe it’s time to lessen expectations and to expect what has become the standard since Ben Roethlisberger’s injury against the Kansas City Chiefs last November.
Instead of expecting sacks, fumbles...
Good one, Steelers.
You really had us going for a while, there.
Starting the 2013 season 0-4? C’mon.
That hasn’t happened since 1968.
This is one hell of a practical joke you’re pulling on us.
Losing to the 0-3 Minnesota Vikings 34-27 in London? A team that allowed at least 31 points in all three of its previous games? A team with perennial bedwetter Matt Cassel replacing Christian...
