Ben Roethlisberger completed 22-of-30 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's 37-19 blowout of the Panthers.
The Steelers didn't need their pass game with Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount both rushing for over 100 yards, but Roethlisberger was able to connect with Antonio Brown for two third-quarter touchdowns. One of his touchdowns was a vintage Big Ben play where he pump faked the entire Panthers defense and made a cross-field throw to Brown. Roethlisberger should get more opportunities to throw in a matchup with the Bucs in Week 4, making him a low-end QB1. He's averaging 273 passing yards with a 3:2 TD:INT ratio through three games.
Jonathan Stewart left Sunday night's week 3 game against the Steelers with a right knee contusion.
Stewart was forced from the game on a hit by Steelers FS Mike Mitchell in the third quarter. With DeAngelo Williams and Fozzy Whittaker already injured, it leaves the Panthers with just Darrin Reaves and Mike Tolbert at running back. Stewart had eight touches for 50 yards before exiting.
Steelers RCB Ike Taylor left Sunday night's game against the Panthers with a forearm injury.
Taylor suffered a broken forearm on a tackle by ILB Lawrence Timmons. He'll likely require surgery and is looking at an extend absence. It's a potential season-ending injury. Taylor could be headed for injured reserve.
Steelers OLB Jarvis Jones was forced from Sunday night's game against the Panthers with a wrist injury.
He's done for the night. Arthur Moats will replace Jones in base sets.
Steelers ILB Ryan Shazier suffered a right knee injury in Sunday night's game against the Panthers and will not return.
Shazier limped off the field and was helped to the locker room. The fact that the he was ruled out immediately isn't a good sign. Vince Williams will replace Shazier next to Lawrence Timmons.
Rob Gronkowski (knee) played on 42-of-73 snaps in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Raiders.
It's 57.5 percent, up from the 43.1 percent Gronkowski had played through the first two weeks. Remember that Gronk wasn't a full-time player last season until five games after coming back from forearm surgery. If anyone is selling, we're buying Gronk as he rounds into form.
Marvin Jones (foot) is expected to return following the Week 4 bye.
Jones' timetable has been unchanged since breaking his foot early in camp. Given how much time he's missed, expect him to be eased in as a rotation player with Mohamed Sanu. Eventually, expect Jones to be the man on the outside opposite A.J. Green, leaving Sanu in a slot role. Deep leaguers should make a stash.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh offered praise for rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro following Sunday's 18-91-1 rushing performance against the Browns.
Although Bernard Pierce is tentatively expected to remain the Ravens' starter, he may be on a short leash going forward. "I think the results speak for themselves with Lorenzo," Harbaugh said after Sunday's win. "He was running downhill, physical and was hard to tackle. That is an element that is a big plus for an offense." Taliaferro needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues.
