Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger 'leaning toward' return

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 10:22:09 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger spoke at a conference over the weekend and suggested he was leaning toward a return. Roethlisberger stated on his radio show in January he had to think about whether or not he was going to play in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Very few people seemed to take the 35-year-old Roethlisberger seriously regarding his talk of retirement, and this report would seem to be further proof Big Ben may have just been testing the waters. The Steelers would be wise to start grooming his heir apparent, although it would make sense for them to wait until next year to do it since the draft class is expected to be significantly better. Assuming he returns as expected, Roethlisberger figures to be a low-end fantasy QB1 again in 2017.

Steelers | GM expects Ben Roethlisberger back

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 11:32:23 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said he expects to see QB Ben Roethlisberger on the field when the team starts their offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger indicated that he was considering retirement this offseason, but most people believe that he will return for at least one more season. He struggled during the playoffs but posted solid numbers during the regular season. Roethlisberger can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season because of the weapons he has in the passing game.

Steelers | Former coach expects Ben Roethlisberger back

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 15:53:23 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he expects Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger to play in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger hinted about retirement after the season, but most people believe that he will play at least one more season. He recorded 3,819 yards and 29 touchdowns in 2016 and will have most of his weapons back next season. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger expected to return

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 13:40:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to return next season, according to owner Art Rooney, despite uncertainty regarding his future. Rooney did admit, however, that the Steelers are probably due to look at quarterbacks in this year's draft class.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger's long career has taken its toll. He hasn't played a full season since 2014 and has only played three full seasons in his 13-year career. If he does return, he's a borderline QB1, but it would probably safer to draft him as a high-end QB2.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger better at home

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 15:36:14 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw for 1,915 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions at home this season. He threw for 1,904 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions on the road.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has had problems on the road in each of the last two seasons but has played very well at Heinz Field. He has mentioned the possibility of retirement after the season but there is a good chance he will be back for 2017. He should be considered a decent No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues if he plays.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger uncertain about future

Tue, 24 Jan 2017 09:32:28 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger hinted retirement was an option when he joined The Cook and Poni Show on 93.7 The Fan on Tuesday, Jan. 24. "I'm going to take this offseason to evaluate, to consider all options. To consider health, and family and things like that and just kind of take some time away to evaluate next season, if there's going to be a next season," Roethlisberger said.

Fantasy Tip: It's likely a bit of an emotional reaction in the wake of a disappointing result in the AFC Championship this past weekend. Roethlisberger is only 34 and would owe Pittsburgh $18.6 million if he calls it a career, so the odds are he will be back in 2017. With that said, the Steelers probably need to ramp up their efforts to find his successor in the next draft or two.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger stellar against zone

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 12:13:24 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 16 of 17 passes for 123 yards versus the New England Patriots' zone defense in the AFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: All things considered, Roethlisberger had a good game statistically, but the Patriots really limited the Steelers' big-play potential. A large part of that was due to Antonio Brown not finding much room as Malcolm Butler did a great job in coverage all game. Look for Butler to shadow Julio Jones as much as possible in the Super Bowl. Injuries and gradual decline make Roethlisberger a backup fantasy option next season.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger decent in loss

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 18:53:00 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 31 of his 47 passing attempts for 314 yards, one touchdown and an interception Sunday, Jan. 22, against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben was done no service by his receivers -- namely Sammie Coates, who dropped three catchable balls. Losing Le'Veon Bell early was costly, but New England largely bottled him up before his departure. Roethlisberger is a low-end QB1 or ideal backup in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger sits out

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 13:39:49 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger will be fine for the AFC Championship game and will look to win his third straight playoff game. He has thrown two touchdowns and three interceptions in his first two playoff games and has struggled on the road this season. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger has serviceable outing

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:36:57 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception and was 20 of 31 for 224 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger ranks as a QB2 mostly because of his injury history, but he will get a shot at elite status again when he faces the New England Patriots in next week's AFC championship game. Roethlisberger wasn't playing earlier this season when Pittsburgh lost to New England in the regular season.
