James Harrison recorded seven tackles and 1.5 sacks during the Steelers' 20-12 win over Kansas City on Sunday.

The veteran linebacker had himself a nice day on Sunday making seven tackles and applying plenty of pressure to Alex Smith. Since rejoining the Steelers, Harrison has been a solid presence on defense, but at 36 years old, his time in the NFL is likely almost over.

Lawrence Timmons recorded 13 tackles during the Steelers' 20-12 win over Kansas City on Sunday.

Timmons has been a mastodon on defense for the Steelers this and recorded 13 tackles on Sunday giving him 121 on the season. If you own him in an IDP league, you have to be ecstatic with the numbers he's provided you this year. He should be a strong player for several more years and will continue to be the centerpiece of Pittsburgh's defense.

Shaun Suisham was 2-for-2 on field goal attempts and converted two extra-point attempts against the Chiefs on Sunday.

Suisham did what was expected of him on Sunday and converted both field goals and two extra-point attempts. He doesn't have a powerful leg, but he makes up for it with accuracy, and has been a solid fantasy kicker this year.

Heath Miller caught seven passes on eight targets for 68 yards during Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over Kansas City on Sunday.

A longtime favorite of Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller had an impressive day on Sunday against the Chiefs. Roethlisberger didn't make many deep throws and instead found Miller underneath on several occasions. After Sunday's performance, Miller now has his third 700-yard season.

Martavis Bryant caught one pass on two targets for 44 yards during Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over Kansas City on Sunday.

Bryant caught a 44 yard pass early in Sunday's game, but was quiet for the rest of the day. He's been up and down for the better part of the year, but has made huge strides in his overall game. He could develop into a strong WR2 as soon as next year, especially considering the way Pittsburgh's offense performed this season.

Antonio Brown caught seven passes on nine targets for 72 yards with one touchdown during Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over Kansas City on Sunday.

Sunday actually marked Brown's worse yardage day of the season, but he still went for 72 yards with a touchdown. He's been the best wide receiver in the league this season without question and that is due to his consistency, performance, and dominance. While he probably won't be drafted as the first wide receiver next season in most leagues, he probably should be. If you are still playing for anything next weekend, Brown should be started in all formats as the Steelers will likely be gunning for a division title.

Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 20 times for 63 yards with one touchdown and caught one pass on two targets for nine yards during Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over Kansas City on Sunday.

Bell was a top option coming into Sunday's game and made fantasy owners happy with a touchdown. The downside of Sunday's performance for Bell was that he caught just one pass, so his value in PPR leagues dipped considerably. Nevertheless, I'd venture to say that a huge chunk of you playing in a championship game owned Bell this season and you have to be ecstatic about the numbers he provided you. He's a true stud and will be a top option at running back for the next several years.

Ben Roethlisberger completed 18-of-25 passes for 224 yards with one touchdown against the Chiefs on Sunday. 

This wasn't a huge game for Roethlisberger, but he was facing a fairly tough pass defense in Kansas City. Overall, Roethlisberger probably disappointed some fantasy owners due to his lack of yardage and touchdowns, but he managed the game well for Pittsburgh and came up clutch when it really mattered. He's been a gem at the quarterback position this season and is the poster boy for waiting on a quarterback in your fantasy football draft. There's nothing overly flashy about Big Ben's game, but he's as consistent as they come. He'll face the Bengals next week in what will likely be a game that decides the AFC North.

Update: Ben Roethlisberger sustained a right knee injury in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. His return is probable. 

Ben has played through numerous injuries in his career, and it looks like this knee injury is no different. Bruce Gradkowski will take over if Roethlisberger is unable to return.

Ben Roethlisberger is headed to locker room after suffering an undisclosed injury in the second half of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. 

The Steelers have been pretty terrible in recent seasons when Roethlisberger has been out, and there is a pretty good chance that is the case now. Antonio's Brown's fantasy value will take a huge hit if Big Ben cannot return. Bruce Gradkowski will take over with Ben out.
