The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Miami Dolphins and may have lost QB Ben Roethlisberger for a game or two with a torn meniscus. Big Ben is scheduled to have surgery today and Landry Jones will most likely be under center in a week 7 matchup against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Roethlisberger could return week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens, after the Steelers bye week.
According to Brad Evans, Antonio Brown was ranked 62nd at the WR position during a four game stretch with Jones at QB last year.
For those of you that have Ben Roethlisberger on your fantasy team(s), here are a few QBs to target on waivers to fill in for the next two weeks:In four games sans Big Ben last year, a stretch that featured Landry Jones/Mike Vick, Antonio Brown logged 17-235-0 line, WR62 in fantasy.— Brad Evans (@YahooNoise) October 17, 2016
