Le'Veon Bell continued to lay down the running law and Zach Mettenberger looks for real.  Let's get to the latest fantasy football action coming out of Monday night's game.

Ben Roethlisberger:  21/32 for 207 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT.  Second game in a row with just one score for Big Ben after his ridiculous 6 TD back-to-back bonanza.  Protection is becoming an issue again as Roethlisberger was under siege all night.  Something to watch but continue to use Roethlisberger as your starter this week.

Zach Mettenberger:  15/24 for 263 yards with 2 TD and 1 INT.  Yeah the pick-six was bad but Mettenberger looks very comfortable and remember he was as hot as any QB in the preseason.  It looks like the Titans have something here with the LSU rookie and those in two-QB formats should pay attention.

Le'Veon Bell:  33 carries for 204 yards with 1 TD to go along with 2 catches for 18 yards.  We are seeing more and more workhorse backs over the last few weeks, with players getting over 30 carries like in the old days.  Bell has been a monster over the last month and so much for worrying about the non-factor LeGarrette Blount stealing value.  Right now Bell is a top five running back in fantasy football and he future looks very bright.

Bishop Sankey:  11 carries for 38 yards and 1 TD.  People continue to go with Sankey but really I am not impresses at all.  Yes he gets the majority of carries for a run-loving team but Sankey has been pretty bad.  The TD was the only saving grace here but otherwise you can do so much better.

Antonio Brown:  9 catches for 91 yards and 1 TD.  Yawn.  This is a standard Antonio Brown game so no reason to go into it.  No seriously the guy is as close to a lock as one can get in this volatile game.  Despite defenses knowing what is coming, Brown continues to churn out 7-10 catches and 100 yards every game with 1 or 2 scores.  Simply amazing and no one has been better the last season-plus.

Heath Miller:  5 catches for 71 yards.  He is as boring as any player in fantasy football but Miller continues to get it done in a nondescript way.  Still would prefer he serve as your bye-week guy though.

There you have it.  Let us know what your thoughts were on the game.
