Post-Ben Roethlisberger eruption, his statistical projections look great this week. He’s projected to throw 1.7 TDs and lead the league with 315.7 yards. All that despite playing Baltimore, which allows just 16.2 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Something’s going to give.

I said, “Yes, there is a noticeable difference across the board, but It’s not so much that it’s going to vault someone from the bottom of the food [...]
Last week, my journey down the matchups based on Football Outsiders’ team defense analysis led me to start Austin Davis, Brian Quick and Justin Forsett, three of the biggest sleeper picks of the week last week.

I didn’t make many changes to this list compared to the early one. I dinged Alex Smith a smidge, but I don’t think we should overreact after just one week and, more importantly, he’s going to be playing from behind all game against the Broncos. That means more yards through the air.
