Start Em’ QB - Ben Roethlisberger PIT, Carson Palmer OAK, & Tony Romo DAL Looking at Roethlisberger’s remaining schedule you have to pretty much love all his matchups. I would be shocked to not see him with at least two touchdowns this week. Carson Palmer against the Ravens? Yes sir! With McFadden out you should see Palmer throw it upwards to 40 times this week with an added bonus of the shaky play of the Ravens defense lately. Call it a gut play or consider the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles defense haven’t stopped anyone in a while, but I think Romo will take advantage. Sit Em’ QB - Jay Cutler CHI, Sam Bradford STL, & Matt Schaub HOU Jay Cutler struggles against defenses with strong pass rushes and the Houston Texans have the best pass rush in football. Not even the boost of Danny Amendola will turn Sam Bradford into a viable fantasy quarterback this week. Matt Schaub goes up against the Chicago Bears, who are not only one of the league’s best, but one of the best ever at forcing turnovers. It’s going to be hard for Schaub to not end up with one or two fumbles or picks. Start Em’ RB - Doug Martin TB, Stevan Ridley NE, & Michael Turner ATL After Doug Martin’s last two phenomenal weeks, there should be no concerns about a dropoff this week. He should once again produce 100 plus total yards and has a great chance of finding the end zone. Ridley is a no-brainer, I would even feel confident putting in Shane Veeran, his backup this week. The New Orleans rush defense can’t stop anyone right now so Michael Turner should have a big week. Sit Em’ RB - Jamaal Charles KC, Steven Jackson STL, & Shonn Greene NYJ With a limited passing game behind him Jamaal Charles’ matchups become harder and harder. It gets no easier this week against the Steelers. Steven Jackson is splitting carries and finds himself against one of the best rush defenses in the league. Shonn Greene has settled back into a mediocre slump. Put him on your bench this week against Seattle. Start Em’ WR - Mike Wallace PIT, Wes Welker NE, & Stevie Johnson BUF The Kansas City Chiefs will have no answer for Mike Wallace this week. He is just too quick for Kansas City’s defense to contain. Wes Welker is going to shred apart the Buffalo Bills. He should almost be guaranteed to get 100 receiving yards. On the other side the Bills will have to throw it a lot to keep up with the Patriots. This will lead to a lot of looks going Johnson’s way. Sit Em’ WR - Jeremy Maclin PHI, Michael Crabtree SF, & Steve Smith CAR Jeremy Maclin and Michael Vick’s days of importance have disappeared along with the Eagles offense. I wouldn’t trust Maclin moving forward. Michael Crabtree will have Cortland Finnegan draped all over him this week. He also will have a limited amount of chances as the 49ers will focus heavily on the run. Steve Smith finally found the end zone lastweek, that should not happen again this week. Champ Bailey should make that next to impossible. Start Em’ TE - Rob Gronkowski NE & Scott Chandler BUF Rob Gronkowski, along with every other person in the New England offense, is a must start this week. This week’s matchups has all of the makings of another low yardage performance with a couple touchdowns. The Bills should find their way to the red zone and look Chandler’s way. Sit Em’ TE - Kyle Rudolph MIN & Owen Daniels HOU Kyle Rudolph’s value was his ability to make key plays in the red zone, but now the Vikings have been content to just hand the ball off to Adrian Peterson. Rudolph has no value until this changes. Like many of the Chicago Bears and the Houston Texans it would be better for fantasy owners to look in different directions this week. Both defenses should make it tough for either offense to operate. Start Em’ DEF -  San Francisco 49ers & Pittsburgh Steelers The San Francisco 49ers have a good chance to keep the Rams under 10 points and force a couple turnovers. Whichever defense faces the Kansas City Chiefs skyrockets to the number one fantasy defense option and this week it’s the streaking Steelers. Sit Em’ DEF - Buffalo Bills & Carolina Panthers The Buffalo Bills haven’t been able to stop anyone this year, facing one of the league’s most potent offenses won’t change that. The Carolina Panthers stopped RG3. They will not stop Peyton Manning. Lock of the Week – Tom Brady 300 Pass Yards 2 TD New England is coming off a bye and facing one of the league’s worst defenses in the Bills. The only way they hold Brady under 300 pass yards is if New England gets up early and is content to just pound the ball. Even then, I still see Brady getting close to 300 yards. Intriguing Pick of the Week – Felix Jones DAL Felix Jones is said to be fully healthy and with Demarco Murray still out, he will get the majority of the carries this week. The Eagles’ rush defense hasn’t been able to stop anyone since the bye, giving 140 plus rushing yards in back to back games. The Cowboys should see this and use Jones to exploit it.

Is Roethlisberger Actually Holding The Ball Longer This Season Compared To Last?

Through the first 8 games of the season Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has only been sacked 17 times which is a rate of 2.125 a game. Should he stay on that same pace it would wind up being the lowest per game rate since the 2005 season, a season that saw him play in just 12 games.

Any NFL player or coach with any class at all is never going to call out his old team, no matter how bad things were when they left.
