Marcus Gilbert (concussion), Mike Mitchell (groin), Ryan Shazier (knee), Matt Spaeth (hamstring), Shamarko Thomas (hamstring), Brett Keisel (rest), Heath Miller (rest) and Troy Polamalu (rest) were all deemed probable for Sunday.

Ben Roethlisberger deserves to start
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

It goes without saying that Ben Roethlisberger's six-touchdown, 522-yard performance Week 8 against Indianapolis was a once-in-a-blue-moon thing, and I stand by my earlier assessment that he's too inconsistent to start in standard 12-team leagues. But that's more for those weeks when every quarterback is available. With six teams on bye, that's certainly not the case in Week 9.

For those owners accustomed to starting Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Matt Ryan or Jay Cutler, Roethlisberger may be the best choice. His matchup against Baltimore isn't great. The Ravens rank a suspect 22nd against the pass, giving up 256.0 yards per game, but having allowed just seven touchdowns through the air, they've surrendered the second-fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Regardless of the matchup, though, Roethlisberger has a better chance than most of the quarterbacks who might be available of putting up the numbers you're accustomed to.

I'd prefer Carson Palmer, Nick Foles and Cam Newton to him, to name just a few fringy types, but Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Ricahrd both have Roethlisberger in their top 10 for this week.

Steelers DST gets another touchdown
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

As should have been expected against the league's No. 1 offense, the Steelers gave up plenty of points and yards Week 8 against Indianapolis -- 34 and 448, to be exact -- but their DST still had a decent showing in Fantasy thanks to a number of big plays.

The two biggest were a 33-yard interception return for a touchdown by William Gay in the second quarter and a safety on an intentional grounding penalty by Andrew Luck in the fourth quarter. In all, the Steelers had two interceptions and two sacks.

The Steelers DST has been far from dominant this season, but it's scored three touchdowns, keeping it relevant in Fantasy. In 12-team leagues, you probably won't have much use for it Week 9 against Baltimore, but keep it on your radar for Weeks 10 and 11, when the Steelers visit the Jets and the Titans.

Martavis Bryant outshines Markus Wheaton again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Granted, both had their moments on a day when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger set franchise records with 522 yards and six touchdowns, but Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant was the preferred target to Markus Wheaton again Week 8 against Indianapolis.

Bryant, a rookie who didn't even play the first six weeks, caught five passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught a 52-yard bomb to set up another score in the second quarter. Wheaton, who has been a starter for much of the season, also caught five passes, but for 56 yards and one touchdown.

Bryant got seven targets to Wheaton's five, taking the lead for a second straight week. Of course, the comparison between Week 8 and Week 7 isn't entirely fair. In Week 7, Bryant had two catches for 40 yards and a touchdown, and Wheaton went without a catch on two targets.

So even if Bryant seems to be pulling ahead, it may not be a big deal in Fantasy. Roethlisberger won't for 522 yards every week, after all, and Antonio Brown is still the No. 1 guy in Pittsburgh. But in leagues with more than 12 teams, Bryant's three touchdowns in two games have earned him a look.
