|Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger could play in Week 9|
Sun, 23 Oct 2016 07:14:17 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) could return to action as soon as Week 9's game against the Baltimore Ravens, despite an initial diagnosis that he would be sidelined for four to six weeks with a torn left meniscus, according to multiple team sources. He has already been ruled out for Week 7's game against the New England Patriots and the club has a bye in Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: QB Landry Jones will start for Pittsburgh in Week 7 but the team has no plans to work out or acquire any veteran quarterbacks while Roethlisberger is sidelined, indicating that he might not miss as much time as originally feared. Jones is not a great fantasy option and should be avoided in all formats.

|Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger timetable update|
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 12:49:21 -0700
Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney said a two-to-three week timetable for QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is considered a best-case scenario but believes a fair range for his return would be two to six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has been ruled out for Week 7, so owners will need to check on his status after the team's Week 8 bye. Landry Jones will be the Steelers' starting quarterback in Week 7 but should be avoided in all leagues.

|Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger could miss 4-6 weeks|
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 07:50:28 -0700
Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) could miss four to six weeks following surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. "Doc says my knee looked good, but there still was some stuff in there from when I had my bone bruise last season in St. Louis," Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "He said that might keep me out a little longer than just a simple meniscus tear. Maybe an extra week or so. But there's no way to put an exact timetable on it. It all depends on my pain and how I feel."
Fantasy Tip: The Steelers have a bye in Week 8, which means Big Ben could just miss three games. The team could opt to hold him out for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns because of the short week for Week 12 at the Indianapolis Colts. Landry Jones had a couple bright spots last season, but he's just a matchup play in DFS.

|Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger ruled out for Week 7|
Tue, 18 Oct 2016 10:00:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Steelers go on a bye after this week, so it is quite possible he will make it back in time to suit up against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9 if all goes well with his recovery. Landry Jones will get the start against the Patriots, but he is well off the fantasy radar. Roethlisberger's absence is a severe temporary downgrade for the fantasy stock of Antonio Brown and Sammie Coates, and a slight hit to Le'Veon Bell as well despite the fact he might see a few more touches.
