Big Ben is dealing with a pec and shoulder injury while Claypool is bothered by a toe. Both are now trending in the right direction for Thursday's contest at Minnesota, a key game for both teams in terms of making the playoffs.
PIT QB Ben Roethlisberger - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Browns
The end is drawing near for Ben Roethlisberger in a Steelers uniform and he recognized that possibility this week. And he's been going out with a whimper, highlighted by the offense just getting dominated by the Chiefs last week. Now they face likely elimination Monday night against the Browns. In Week 8, Big Ben threw for 266 yards and a touchdown. Interestingly enough, the Browns are actually the No. 3 defense against opposing fantasy quarterbacks. The good news is that Roethlisberger has nine total passing touchdowns in three primetime games, including three each in the near comebacks against the Chargers and Vikings. Roethlisberger is his usual QB2 self this week.
