Steelers | Martavis Bryant wants to talk to QB

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 18:31:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he wants to talk with QB Ben Roethlisberger "man-to-man" about the public comments Roethlisberger made about Bryant's suspension. "Hopefully we'll have it before the season starts," Bryant said. "If not, that's fine. I'm still going to go out and perform and do what I have to do to be the best teammate I can be."

Fantasy Tip: Fair or foul, the comments Roethlisberger made shouldn't have much impact on Bryant's fantasy value. If he can stay out of trouble, Bryant's big-play potential makes him a high-upside WR3.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger wants tight end

Tue, 11 Apr 2017 12:35:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has already lobbied to head coach Mike Tomlin to draft a tigh end, according to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala.

Fantasy Tip: Heath Miller is gone and Ladarius Green didn't see much of the field last year due to poor health. Green would presumably be the favorite to start even if the Steelers do draft a tight end. If Green is fully healthy before the season begins, he can be drafted as a low-end TE1 to high-end TE2. As for Roethlisberger, he is over the hill and should no longer be regarded as a QB1.

Steelers | Big Ben confirms he will play in 2017

Fri, 07 Apr 2017 11:25:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger informed the Steelers he will return for a 14th season in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger suggested retirement was a possibility for him shortly after the team's AFC Championship loss to the New England Patriots, but few - including the Steelers - seemed to take him all that seriously. Even though he is coming back, Pittsburgh would be well-served to make finding his heir apparent a priority. For fantasy purposes, Big Ben should be considered a midrange to low-end QB1 in 2017.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger expected to play

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to play in 2017, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin said he hasn't asked him directly, but he expects him to play.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben threw out some mild retirement shockwaves in the media, but he'll be in the midst of the midrange or upper-middle QB1 portions in fantasy.

Steelers | Mike Tomlin unfazed by Roethlisberger talk

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 19:23:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin think it's a "very reasonable discussion when you get 35," referring to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's retirement talk, but ultimately, he feels people "probably read too much into it" and "are making more out of than what it is."

Fantasy Tip: He's probably right, as it seems more likely than not that Roethlisberger will indeed be back for the 2017 campaign, especially considering that the 13-year veteran has been consistently excellent over the past handful of seasons. In fact, Big Ben has topped 3,800 passing yards in four consecutive years after reaching that plateau only twice previously. Fantasy owners can still look at him as their potential QB1.

Steelers | PIT planning for Ben Roethlisberger return

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 15:26:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said the Steelers are proceeding as if QB Ben Roethlisberger will play in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has said he is leaning towards playing but has not made an official decision, so owners should monitor the situation. The Steelers could consider adding a quarterback during the 2017 NFL draft even if Roethlisberger returns. He would be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he continues to play.

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.
