Dave Richard On Toucher & Rich: Big Ben’s Fantasy Status
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a pair of injuries in Pittsburgh’s Monday night win over the Kansas City Chiefs, not only injuring his throwing shoulder but also dislocating a rib — an injury that will likely have him on the sidelines for the foreseeable future.
“I’m a little nervous,” Richard said of Roethlisberger. “NFL Insider Mike Freeman on CBSSports.com has a source telling him he’ll be back in Week 12. But you hear about this dislocation – it’s the same type of injury (Rams wide receiver) Danny Amendola had and he missed several weeks. It wouldn’t surprise me if Big Ben missed two or three games; he might miss both of their games against Baltimore.”
What will Roethlisberger’s injury mean to Pittsburgh receiver Mike Wallace? And does it mean good things if you own any of their running backs?
Richard also gives a few wide receivers available in many leagues that can help fantasy owners: Arizona’s Andre Roberts and San Diego’s Danario Alexander a couple of examples.
