Steelers | No surgery for Ben Roethlisberger

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 06:09:19 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) will not need surgery on his knee this offseason and should be able to have a normal offseason, according to his agent.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger saw a significant jump in his stats this season and should have the same weapons in the passing game next season. Roethlisberger should be considered a mid-to-low No. 1 quarterback in fantasy drafts next season.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger could have surgery

Tue, 06 Jan 2015 10:27:32 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) could have minor offseason surgery on his knee to get it cleaned up, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Roethlisberger said he didn't suffer a concussion in the team's wild-card playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens, and his hand is also fine.

Fantasy Tip: If Roethlisberger has surgery on his knee, it's not expected to impact his readiness for the start of the 2015 season. With plenty of offensive weapons around him again next year, we believe Big Ben should be worthy of a QB1 selection in your fantasy football drafts.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger wants new deal

Tue, 06 Jan 2015 09:46:39 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is confident that he and the team will agree on a new contract after he was tied for the NFL lead with 4,952 passing yards this season. Roethlisberger is heading into the final year of his eight-year, $102 million deal, and the Steelers hope to work something out to keep him in Pittsburgh for the rest of his career. President Art Rooney II wants Roethlisberger to retire with the team. Roethlisberger will make $11.6 million next year with a cap hit of $18.395 million, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben put up an amazing season, including two separate games with six touchdowns each. The emergence of Antonio Brown and the presence of a pass-catching back out of the backfield in Le'Veon Bell make Roethlisberger a force to be reckoned with. He should be considered a QB1 again heading into next season.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger had whiplash

Sun, 04 Jan 2015 07:55:40 -0800

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (neck) said he left the wild-card playoff game briefly Saturday, Jan. 3, due to whiplash. "Yeah, just like a little whiplash on my neck, I was just kinda laying down there and wanted to make sure I could feel everything. It was more just whiplash on my neck. Right now it feels OK, I'll probably be sore tomorrow," Roethlisberger said after the game.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben showed renewed pocket mobility in the playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens. After the best statistical season of his career, he will likely be looked at as a mid-to-low QB1 in traditional formats.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger probable

Fri, 02 Jan 2015 11:16:06 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 2, and is listed as probable for the Wild Card playoff game.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger should be fine to play in the playoff game and likely will have a bigger role since Le'Veon Bell will not play. Roethlisbeger threw for at least 300 yards in nine games this season and threw six touchdowns the last time he played the Baltimore Ravens. Roethlisberger has an expensive price tag of $8,400 on FantasyScore but could be a solid option if owners are willing to spend the money.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger feeling better

Wed, 31 Dec 2014 07:33:22 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (illness) is a little hoarse Wednesday, Dec. 31, but his stomach is feeling much better after a bout with illness.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben ($8,400; 16.8% of your cap) has some upside if the team is without Le'Veon Bell (knee). The offense is likely to rely on the aerial attack more, which makes him a great QB1 on FantasyScore.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has the second best postseason win percentage (.714) among active quarterbacks with at least 10 postseason starts, according to ESPN Stats and Info. New York Giants QB Eli Manning is tops at .727.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben has certainly been a huge success in the playoffs, but he could be without RB Le'Veon Bell against the Baltimore Ravens. Still, he's worth consideration for your FantasyScore lineup, especially at home.
