Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger shedding weight

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 09:22:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has lost at least 15 pounds this offseason with a cardio regimen in an attempt to avoid joint pain and injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben is an option in that upper-middle tier after the elite QBs are taken in fantasy.

Steelers | Big Ben has several more prime years

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 22:13:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has several more prime years, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Roethlisberger averaged 330 passing yards per game in 12 games last year. "Ben's a franchise quarterback," Colbert said. "We still have, you know, we think three to four more good years in his prime. We're excited to see what he can do in that time period and what we can do to help him be successful."

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger turned 34 this month and still has a very good arm. He has been susceptible to injury and isn't nearly as elusive in the pocket as he used to be. However, he has arguably the best receiver in the game in Antonio Brown, a stud running back in Le'Veon Bell (when healthy) and an exciting option in Ladarius Green at tight end. He remains entrenched in the middle of the QB1 window.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger's stock takes hit

Sat, 12 Mar 2016 11:16:55 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to have one less target to throw to in 2016 with WR Martavis Bryant facing a year-long suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger still has some quality weapons at his disposal, including Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell, Markus Wheaton, Ladarius Green and Sammie Coates. Wheaton and Coates won't be able to fully make up for Bryant's size, athleticism and speed, though. Put Brown at the top of your fantasy wide receiver rankings, if he's not already. Bell is easily a top RB1, while Wheaton can now be part of the WR3 conversation in PPR leagues. Again, Green is a borderline tight end starter.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger has years left

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 14:45:39 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has not shown any decline in his play and is expected to play several more seasons, according to team president Art Rooney II. Rooney said the team is not looking to start grooming their next starting quarterback at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger dealt with multiple injuries this season but still posted solid numbers for fantasy owners. He should have most of his weapons back next season and will be a starting quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger happy with play

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 17:49:49 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he feels like he is playing some of his best football and will work on keeping his arm strong this offseason. Roethlisberger has completed 67.1% and 68.0% of his passes over the last two seasons, which are the best two seasons of his career.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger played very well when he was healthy this season and threw for nearly 4,000 yards even though he missed four games. He should have all of his main weapons back next season and will be a starting quarterback in most leagues.

Steelers | Big Ben won't need surgery

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 11:15:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) said he will not need surgery on his right shoulder in the offseason. He will take some time off in the next few weeks to let the injury heal. "From what I've been told by Doc (James) Bradley, no surgery," Roethlisberger said. "The ligaments will scar up and heal on their own. The only thing he could foresee possibly down the road is cleaning out the arthritis and scars. I don't foresee any surgeries anytime soon." He also said he took a painkilling shot Friday, Jan. 15, and probably wouldn't have gotten through the divisional round without it.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger still managed to throw for over 300 yards against the top-rated pass defense in the Denver Broncos, and he did it two times this year. He'll be fully healed in time for next year, and with this receiver corps, he's an elite QB1 for fantasy owners.

Steelers | No scores for Ben Roethlisberger

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 17:20:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 24 of 37 passes for 339 yards in a 23-16 loss to the Denver Broncos in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Despite an injured shoulder, Roethlisberger was able to move the ball with ease against a tough Denver secondary, but he was unable to finish off drives with touchdowns. He will have plenty of weapons at his disposal next year, and he could finish as a top-five fantasy option at his position.

Steelers | Big Ben has entire playbook available

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 06:25:17 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's (shoulder) arm isn't expected to be full strength, but he'll have the whole playbook available Sunday, Jan. 17, in the divisional round.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) receives kudos for suiting up, but he's without RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) and WR Antonio Brown (concussion). He doesn't have a lot of upside against the Denver Broncos.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger expected to start

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 10:27:54 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) will travel with the team and is expected to start against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) isn't at full health, and he won't have his top wide receiver to throw to tomorrow. He won't have DeAngelo Williams to hand off to, either, so it could be tough going for Pittsburgh's offense tomorrow against an elite Denver defense. Start Big Ben at your own risk.

Steelers | Big Ben puts in full practice

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 10:07:36 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) put in a full practice Friday, Jan. 15, but is listed as questionable for the divisional round game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) is expected to play, but his throwing may be somewhat compromised, and he'll also be without the NFL's leading receiver this year in Antonio Brown (concussion). We don't recommend paying up for Big Ben against a nasty pass defense.
