Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is going through a mini slump at the worst possible time for fantasy owners considering using him in the fantasy football playoffs. If you’re trying to decide what to do with him, let’s take a closer look at his fantasy outlook this weekend.

After throwing for just 187 yards the previous week in a loss to the Buffalo Bills, Roethlisberger completed 20 of 38 passes for 170 yards with a touchdown and interception on Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals. He has now thrown at least one interception in each of his last five games.
Roethlisberger and the Steelers will see the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Indianapolis ranks 17th in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game this season.
