Ben Roethlisberger Injury - Torn Meniscus


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:
  1. Alex Smith (28% owned Yahoo) - vs NO, @ IND
  2. Ryan Fitzpatrick (31%) -  vs BAL, @ CLE
  3. Trevor Siemian (13%) - vs HOU, vs SD
  4. Sam Bradford (18%) - @ PHI, @ CHI
If you want to take it one week at a time, add Joe Flacco (29%) who gets the Jets in week 7 before a week 8 bye.  Then add your favorite matchup in week 8.
