Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger rested Wednesday

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 13:36:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (rest) was given the day off to rest at practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben was getting the typical veteran's day to rest, and he'll likely be back at it as a full participant on Thursday as the team ramps up for its Week 3 game in Chicago. He remains a reliable fantasy option, even in what is his final season in the NFL.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger throws two TDs

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:56:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 23-for-35 for 243 yards and two touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger continued his strong play at home and used multiple receivers during the game. He has struggled on the road over the last few seasons but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback next week when the Steelers travel to play the Chicago Bears.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger has solid outing

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 12:55:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 24-for-36 for 263 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Most of Roethlisberger's yards came off throws to Antonio Brown, so it appears he needs more time to strengthen his chemistry with Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant. He will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 2 but could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback because he plays better at home.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger plans to play Saturday

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 17:52:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he will play in the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger sat out the first two preseason games but probably will play most of the first half against the Colts. He will have a lot of weapons to work with in the passing game this season, but owners may want to consider him a No. 2 fantasy quarterback because he has struggled on the road over the last few seasons.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger to sit Sunday

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 15:05:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has been told that he will not play in the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Aug. 20, but will play in the third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger had a similar workload last preseason, so the team wants to make sure he is healthy for the start of the regular season. Roethlisberger has plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game but is not a great fantasy option because he has struggled on the road for the last few seasons. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in leagues.

Steelers | Big Ben, Antonio Brown to sit Friday

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 09:56:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR Antonio Brown will not play in the team's exhibition opener against the New York Giants on Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers have no reason to expose their quarterback and arguably the game's best receiver to potential injury this weekend, especially when neither player would play more than one or two series anyway. Expect the duo to get their first preseason snaps on Aug. 20 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Steelers | Ankle issue for Ben Roethlisberger

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 19:18:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) was unable to finish practice Thursday, Aug. 3, because of a right ankle injury, but head coach Mike Tomlin downplayed the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger was great at home but struggled on the road last year, making him a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 in 2017.

Steelers | Big Ben unsure about playing past 2017

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 12:01:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has yet to commit to playing beyond this season. "I feel if I commit to anything past right now, I'm cheating now. I'm looking forward to this season, and I'm going to give it everything I have and afterwards we'll sit down and do some (thinking) again," Roethlisberger said.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers addressed life post-Roethlisberger by spending a fourth-round pick on Josh Dobbs this spring. With Big Ben talking about retirement already this summer and his wife encouraging him to do so, there's a decent chance he may be playing his final season. For fantasy purposes, he is a highly inconsistent low-end QB1 with severe home-road splits over the last few seasons.
