Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger officially ruled out

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, ribs) is out for Week 11 and QB Byron Leftwich will get the start. The team is not taking any chances with Roethlisberger, deciding to sit him.

Fantasy Tip: Leftwich is not in the same class as Roethlisberger by any means; however, in the short-term he should be adequate. Look for the Steelers to focus even more on the run and short-passing game. Mike Wallace's value may take somewhat of a hit, while TE Heath Miller could see even more targets.
