Source: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger expected to play in Week 14

Right now, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin isn't committing to anyone as his quarterback for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.
"Charlie (Batch) is our guy and build our plan around him and see what Ben (Roethlisberger) will prove to us this week," Tomlin said Tuesday.
Roethlisberger will prove what he has when he practices Wednesday, but a team source has already told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the Steelers expect Roethlisberger to return for Sunday's game. Roethlisberger has missed the previous three games due to a sprained throwing shoulder and dislocated ribs.

Fantasy Analysis:

Batch was definitely serviceable against the Ravens, but this would be great news for Mike Wallace @Wallace17_daKid, Antonio Brown @AntonioBrown84 and basically the entire Steelers offense. The word from that source jibes with an ESPN report that the pain in Roethlisberger's shoulder and chest has "diminished." We'll know more about this story tomorrow, but things are looking up for Big Ben. He would be a borderline QB1 at home against the Chargers.
