Steelers | Big Ben likes facing Cleveland

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 21:38:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw for 365 yards with a touchdown in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns, the team's Week 6 opponent. Over his past eight starts against the Browns, Roethlisberger has thrown two or more touchdown passes. However, in 19 career starts, he has eclipsed 281 yards just twice.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger is a solid FantasyScore option at $7600 (or 15.2 percent of the cap) based upon his Week 1 performance against the Browns, but not so much for his career trends.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger disappointed

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 10:40:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he was unhappy with his play in Week 5 even though he went 26-for-36 for 273 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions. "I was a little disappointed in the way I played," Roethlisberger said. "I want to say the line played a lot better than what the stats are going to say. That's a good defensive front. They got after it. I know there are going to be some stats on sacks, but the line played a lot better than it will be written. A lot of those are on me."

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has played well in his last three games and has not thrown an interception in that span. Roethlisberger likely will be a matchup play most of the season, but could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore this upcoming week depending on the price.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger injured

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 11:04:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (hand) went to the locker room after hurting his right hand during the team's Week 4 game.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger was able to stay in the game after initially suffering the injury, but it is not known if he will return to the game. Bruce Gradkowski would take over at quarterback for the team but likely would not have much fantasy value.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger sore

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 10:59:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he is still very sore after taking a hit in the chest in the team's Week 2 game from Baltimore Ravens LB Courtney Upshaw. "I'm hurting today as much as I was at any point I can think of in the last year," Roethlisberger said.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has a FantasyScore price of $7,500 for Week 3, but might have a tough go against what has been a very good Carolina Panthers defense the first two weeks of the season. It may be wise to consider other options.
