Holmes returns to Steelers; Roethlisberger hurting

The Steelers will welcome back Santonio Holmes to the fold following a one-game suspension for being charged with a marijuana-related offense last week. Holmes is expected to start for the Steelers on Monday night, so feel safe to put him in your lineup as a No. 2 receiver.

(Good luck to you if he’s your top guy. That must have been rough for you last week.)

The news isn’t so good for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Coach Mike Tomlin said that Big Ben could miss practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but is currently not in danger of missing Monday’s game against the Redskins.

Still, Roethlisberger has been a disappointment to fantasy footballers this season. Outside of his 65-yard bomb to Nate Washington, Roethlisberger was dinking and dunking the ball like one of those annoying game managers against the Giants. Teams have been teeing off on Roethlisberger this season and, because of that, he is currently ranked 12th in NFL.com’s fantasy quarterback rankings.
