Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger to sit Sunday

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 15:05:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has been told that he will not play in the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Aug. 20, but will play in the third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger had a similar workload last preseason, so the team wants to make sure he is healthy for the start of the regular season. Roethlisberger has plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game but is not a great fantasy option because he has struggled on the road for the last few seasons. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in leagues.

Steelers | Big Ben, Antonio Brown to sit Friday

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 09:56:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR Antonio Brown will not play in the team's exhibition opener against the New York Giants on Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers have no reason to expose their quarterback and arguably the game's best receiver to potential injury this weekend, especially when neither player would play more than one or two series anyway. Expect the duo to get their first preseason snaps on Aug. 20 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Steelers | Ankle issue for Ben Roethlisberger

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 19:18:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) was unable to finish practice Thursday, Aug. 3, because of a right ankle injury, but head coach Mike Tomlin downplayed the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger was great at home but struggled on the road last year, making him a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 in 2017.

Steelers | Big Ben unsure about playing past 2017

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 12:01:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has yet to commit to playing beyond this season. "I feel if I commit to anything past right now, I'm cheating now. I'm looking forward to this season, and I'm going to give it everything I have and afterwards we'll sit down and do some (thinking) again," Roethlisberger said.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers addressed life post-Roethlisberger by spending a fourth-round pick on Josh Dobbs this spring. With Big Ben talking about retirement already this summer and his wife encouraging him to do so, there's a decent chance he may be playing his final season. For fantasy purposes, he is a highly inconsistent low-end QB1 with severe home-road splits over the last few seasons.

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

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 07:57:05 -0700

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.
