Downgrade Steelers receivers

Steelers QB Ben Roetlisberger will not play on Sunday, obviously nuking his fantasy value for the week. (Yeah, obviously.) But this also puts a huge crimp into the value of the Steelers receivers, too.

Hines Ward has become a No. 1 receiver again. Santonio Holmes has been good, and even rookie Mike Wallace has had some good games. Do not expect that with Dennis Dixon at quarterback. I loved Dixon at Oregon, I am just not expecting him to do anything this week against the Ravens.

Ward remains a must-start, but Holmes and Wallace have taken a big hit here. Wallace is a guy I have been using, but I am putting him on my bench. Wallace has put up a couple of clunkers recently, so this does not hurt that much.

Jason La Canfora also reported that St. Louis activated RB Chris Ogbonnaya, a bad sign for Steven Jackson. But Jackson has been a bust for fantasy owners this season, only recently scoring some touchdowns. Have some backups ready to go, and be sure to check back to NFL.com on Sunday morning for all of the latest inactives.
