Fantasy Football Week 13 Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Look For Ben Roethlisberger To Have Big Day

For the second time in three weeks, the Pittsburgh Steelers (8-3) will take on the Cincinnati Bengals (7-4) in an AFC North clash. The Steelers defeated the Bengals 24-17 on November 13 in Cincinnati. The Steelers 8-3 mark places them not only in a tie for first in the division with Baltimore, but also a tie for the overall top AFC seed with New England and Houston.

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger  was 21 of 33 for 245 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals less than a month ago, and the fantasy projection site numberFire.com expects a good Sunday afternoon for Big Ben. He is ranked as the 12th best play overall this weekend, with these projected stats: 20.68/32.86, 242.81 yds, 1.70 TDs, 0.94 INTs for 15.20 pts

Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall might also be in line for a big game. He gained just 44 yards in the previous matchup with the Bengals, but did get in to the endzone twice. After being held to just two catches and 17 yards against the Chiefs last week, you can also expect Mike Wallace to easily trump those numbers and excel as Roethlisberger shines.
