Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 8

Ben Roethlisberger Pit - QB 2014 vs. Indianapolis 522 passing yards, 6 TD passes Through the first seven weeks of ’14, Big Ben ranked outside the top 20 in fantasy scoring among signal callers.

His slow start likely led many of his owners to look for other QB options for Week 8, when Roethlisberger finally emerged from hibernation to drop 522 passing yards and 6 TD passes on the Colts. You can be sure his owners didn’t make the same mistake the following week when the suddenly red-hot Roethlisberger threw for another half dozen touchdowns to go with 340 passing yards against Baltimore, becoming the first QB in NFL history to throw at least six touchdowns in back-to-back weeks.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
