Stat correction gives QB a TD in week 5-- Thu Oct 11 7:30 am --
Roethlisberger credited with passing touchdown
Stat corrections strike again! What originally was scored as a 13-yard touchdown run for Rashard Mendenhall now has been credited as a 13-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Mendenhall. While it doesn’t have an impact on the running back’s fantasy total from Week 5, it does give Big Ben a boost of 4.52 points in standard NFL.com leagues. That could be a big deal as Roethlisberger started in 23 percent of leagues last week. (NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:This stat correction could come as either a late blessing or nightmare depending on whether you started or faced Roethlisberger last week. Big Ben is now up to nine touchdown passes through four games putting him on pace for 36. His career high is 32 which he totalled in 2007.
