Week 13 Fantasy Football Recap: Bengals vs. Steelers

Cincinnati Bengals – 7, Pittsburgh Steelers – 35 This was supposed to be a closer game than this, but no one seemed to tell Andy Dalton (141 total yards, 1 TD) that.  Dalton missed several throws and finally looked a little more like a rookie when he’s looked like a savvy vet for most of the season.  Ben Roethlisberger (176 yards, 2 TDs) surprisingly didn’t have to throw...
