Steelers | Dennis Dixon named starter

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has named QB Dennis Dixon the starting quarterback for Week 1, reports Bob Pompeani, of KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Tip: Don't view Dixon as anything more than a No. 3 fantasy football quarterback during the first month of the season. He is simply keeping the starting job warm until Ben Roethlisberger returns from his four-game suspension. Look for the Steelers to reel in their offense a bit with the youngster starting, as they will rely more on RB Rashard Mendenhall and their running game during the first quarter of the season.
