Sun, 18 Sep 2016 22:29:17 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 19 of his 37 pass attempts for 259 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He also added one run for 14 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger didn't connect with Antonio Brown like last week, but he tossed a touchdown each to Xavier Grimble, Jesse James and DeAngelo Williams. He has quite the arsenal in Pittsburgh and remains a must-have QB1 in all formats heading into Week 3 at Philadelphia.

|Steelers | Big Ben to struggle in Week 2?|
Wed, 14 Sep 2016 22:53:32 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Last season he completed 58 of his 84 pass attempts for 544 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in two regular season games against the Bengals.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners cannot afford to sit Big Ben, not as long as he has No. 84 healthy and available. Despite last season's poor output against the 'Nati, Roethlisberger is a fantasy stud and worth using in Week 2 in all formats. Plus, he had five TD passes and just one INT in two games in 2014 against the Bengals.

|Steelers | Big Ben opens with huge stat line|
Mon, 12 Sep 2016 19:53:38 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 27 of his 37 pass attempts for 300 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins. He fumbled twice, but was able to recover each ball.
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown hooked up for a pair of pretty touchdown receptions, and appear to be in midseason form already. Big Ben remains a low-end QB1 in all fantasy formats, especially as long as Brown is healthy and available.

|Steelers | Pittsburgh offense may play faster|
Wed, 31 Aug 2016 13:11:55 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger indicated the team may use the no-huddle offense more often this season. The Steelers used the no-huddle offense on 16 of Roethlisberger's 19 snaps during their third preseason game.
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has had success in the no-huddle offense, so it should help his numbers if the team plays fast. He has lost some of his weapons because of suspensions and injuries, but he should still be a solid No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

|Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger tosses two scores|
Fri, 26 Aug 2016 18:49:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger might not be an elite fantasy quarterback, but he is a quality QB1 option who should be available if you wait until the middle rounds to address the position.

|Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger expects to play|
Mon, 22 Aug 2016 15:56:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger missed the first two preseason games and probably will see limited playing time against the Saints. He will be without some of his targets this season because of suspensions, but he could still be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

|Steelers | PIT starters out second preseason game|
Tue, 16 Aug 2016 08:42:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bell, Brown and Big Ben are all amidst the first pack in fantasy at their respective positions. D-Will is an RB3 as he'll take a backseat when Bell returns from his suspension.

|Steelers | Pittsburgh to sit several players|
Wed, 10 Aug 2016 11:15:00 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell, RB DeAngelo Williams, WR Antonio Brown and C Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 12.
Fantasy Tip: All of the players will be rested and should play in the next few preseason games. Brown likely will be one of the first players selected in drafts, while Bell probably will be a No. 1 running back once he returns from his suspension. Roethlisberger should also be a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues. Williams will have increased value over the first month of the season with Bell out but should also be a flex option when Bell returns.

|Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger's shoulder 100%|
Fri, 29 Jul 2016 19:59:56 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) said Friday, July 29, an MRI on his right shoulder showed his injury is fully healed. "(The doctors) were really happy, because they felt like the muscle around it had built up and it looked really good," Roethlisberger said.
Fantasy Tip: Even with the suspensions looming for Pittsburgh's offense, Roethlisberger should still be a QB1 in 2016.

|Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger likes two-point tries|
Tue, 14 Jun 2016 11:16:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's an intriguing idea with the point-after-attempt further back. Doing so would give a little more value to guys like Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell, Markus Wheaton and Ladarius Green, not to mention Big Ben. Roethlisberger, Brown and Bell are all top options at their respective positions in any fantasy format, with or without a two-point attempt after every score. Additionally, Shaun Suisham or Chris Boswell could also see a decrease in production with such an effort. Neither should be viewed as a PK1 anyway.
