Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger struggles in Chicago

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 17:06:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 22 of his 39 pass attempts for 235 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears. He was sacked three times in the loss and he lost a fumble.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger still hooked up with Antonio Brown 10 times and moved the offense, but his numbers were under average against a Chicago defense which was torched last week in Tampa. Big Ben will look to rebound in Week 4 in Baltimore against a pass defense which was toasted in London by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger ready to play

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 12:18:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not in the injury report for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has struggled on the road over the last few seasons but has a chance to play better since all of his pass catchers will be available. He will be facing a Chicago Bears defense that has allowed 502 passing yards in the first two games. Owners in deeper leagues can consider Roethlisberger as a low-end No. 1 quarterback.

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 14:16:43 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger is off to a solid start to the season with 506 yards and four touchdowns but will be a risky option for owners because he struggles on the road. He will have a favorable matchup in Week 3 and could still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 13:36:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (rest) was given the day off to rest at practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben was getting the typical veteran's day to rest, and he'll likely be back at it as a full participant on Thursday as the team ramps up for its Week 3 game in Chicago. He remains a reliable fantasy option, even in what is his final season in the NFL.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 23-for-35 for 243 yards and two touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger continued his strong play at home and used multiple receivers during the game. He has struggled on the road over the last few seasons but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback next week when the Steelers travel to play the Chicago Bears.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger has solid outing

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 12:55:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 24-for-36 for 263 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Most of Roethlisberger's yards came off throws to Antonio Brown, so it appears he needs more time to strengthen his chemistry with Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant. He will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 2 but could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback because he plays better at home.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger plans to play Saturday

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 17:52:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he will play in the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger sat out the first two preseason games but probably will play most of the first half against the Colts. He will have a lot of weapons to work with in the passing game this season, but owners may want to consider him a No. 2 fantasy quarterback because he has struggled on the road over the last few seasons.

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.
