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

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 12 of his 17 passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns against the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 26.

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

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he plans to play in the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 26.

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

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell, RB DeAngelo Williams and WR Antonio Brown won't play in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18.

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

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he would like to attempt two-point conversions after every touchdown this season. He and head coach Mike Tomlin have discussed the possibility.

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.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger has high expectations

Tue, 24 May 2016 22:16:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said the offense will be looking to average 30 points per game in 2016 even though WR Martavis Bryant has been suspended for the entire season. "It is still our goal," Roethlisberger said. "We were close last year, but we didn't get there." The Steelers averaged 26.4 points per game in 2015 but the average increased to 28.9 points when Roethlisberger started or played at least a half.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger will have plenty of weapons to work with this upcoming season even with Bryant out and should be a starting option in all leagues. Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell likely will be selected in one of the first two rounds of drafts, while Ladarius Green and Markus Wheaton should be owned in most leagues.

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.
