Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger embracing leadership

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 17:56:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is embracing a leadership role this offseason. "It's fun because I can tell the guys what I want on the field and they are going to listen because we all want to be the best we can be and help each other win," Roethlisberger said. "I am just happy to have the coach's blessing to be able to do that and not stepping on anybody's toes." At 33 years old, Roethlisberger is the second-oldest player on the Steelers' roster, behind only LB James Harrison.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger was criticized last year by former teammate Emmanuel Sanders for his lack of leadership, and he seems to have taken it to heart. With elite weapons in Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell, Roethlisberger is a fringe top-10 quarterback heading into 2015 drafts.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is excited about the team's offense heading into the 2015 season, which he feels might be the best supporting cast of his career. "I hate to yes or no, because I don't want to offend anybody else that's been here," Roethlisberger said Wednesday, June 10. "But you look at stats from the NFL, we had the No. 1 wide receiver and the No. 1 overall back. Kind of hard to argue with those numbers."

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben could be in line for a huge fantasy season with Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton at receiver and Le’Veon Bell in the backfield.

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.

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.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) and TE Heath Miller (non-injury) both returned to a full practice Thursday, Dec. 18, after taking the day off Wednesday, Dec. 17.

The Chiefs have limited opposing tight ends to just 2.55 fantasy points per game in the last four weeks.

Steelers | Roethlisberger, OC clicking

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 16:20:09 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley are working very well together this season. With the game on the line late in the fourth quarter in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons, Haley gave Roethlisberger the freedom to decide between two different plays. The fact that Haley didn't insist on a run with just one yard to gain shows how well the relationship between the coordinator and QB is going. Roethlisberger was 12-for-14 for 191 yards on plays in which the Falcons rushed at least five defenders, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Fantasy Tip: That's two straight solid performances for Big Ben. He'll face a Kansas City Chiefs defense in Week 16 that has been pretty solid against opposing quarterbacks this year, though, so it may be tough for him to return handsomely on your investment at FantasyScore.

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 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.
