Fantasy Tip: Williams had a busy day even though he was stacked up in the run game, he still found a way to post sold fantasy numbers.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was blanketed by Richard Sherman, so he was unable to get in on the offensive parade. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 456 yards, but a majority of the yardage went to Markus Wheaton, not Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant found plenty of open spaces, along with Markus Wheaton, as the Seahawks matched up Richard Sherman on Antonio Brown to limit the star receiver's effectiveness. The loss of Brown and his fantasy owners was the gain of Bryant and Wheaton and their owners.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton was the beneficiary of tight covered by Richard Sherman on Antonio Brown. It opened up plenty of room for Wheaton and Martavis Bryant.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (concussion) left the Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks with two minutes left in the game and was taken to the locker room due to the concussion protocol.
Fantasy Tip: Before departing Roethlisberger racked up 36 completions on 55 attempts for 456 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions while rushing five times for 18 yards. If he is forced to miss time again it would be Landry Jones starting in his absence.

Fantasy Tip: If Miller is sidelined going forward it would be Jesse James seeing more targets. James hauled in a two-point conversion reception once Miller was out.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (undisclosed) left the Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks in the fourth quarter due to an undisclosed injury. He took a hit to the head, and the announcers speculated he could be having his head checked. QB Landry Jones took over with two minutes to go and the team down nine.
Fantasy Tip: If Roethlisberger is sidelined again it would be Landry Jones starting in Week 13, but it's too early to tell what is wrong with Big Ben this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant are first and second in maximum speed, hitting 22.30 and 21.76 mph, respectively, with the ball in their hands this year. Bryant had three of the eight fastest speeds by a ball carrier with the ball in his hands in Week 10. Brown and Bryant combined for 317 yards and three touchdowns in Week 10 and drew 141 yards worth of pass interference penalties by the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: We all know that Brown is an elite fantasy receiver and is a must-start every week. Bryant is gaining recognition, too, for his consistent big-play abilities. He's more valuable in standard leagues, but with Ben Roethlisberger back under center, Bryant is a force to be reckoned with in PPR leagues as well.
