Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger limited

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 13:44:51 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The team probably was taking things easy with Roethisberger and should be ready to play in Week 14. He has thrown eight touchdowns and one interception over the last four games but does not play as well when he is on the road. He can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 23-for-36 for 167 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 11.

Steelers | Big Ben in line for a big week

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 21:32:25 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will face the Cleveland Browns in Week 11. The Browns have allowed 275.4 yards per game through the air, ranking 27th in the NFL in pass defense. The Browns have also allowed an NFL-high 25 passing scores and 40 pass plays of 20 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger's fantasy owners have to be licking their chops, as he is healthy and will likely pair with Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and his other offensive assets for a giant stat line against Cleveland's terrible pass D.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger has owned Browns

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 13:01:58 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger faces the Cleveland Browns in Week 11. In 22 career games against the Browns, Roethlisberger holds a 20-2 record with 5,323 yards and 35 touchdowns. Those 35 touchdowns are the most he's thrown against any team in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger is coming off his best outing of the season in a loss against the Dallas Cowboys last week, throwing for over 400 yards and three touchdowns. It's generally ill advised to expect duplicate performances, but Roethlisberger is capable of such a feat. Start him with confidence.

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 20:47:44 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 37 of his 46 pass attempts for 408 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He also rushed once for one yard and was sacked once.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben left the game for one play after a hard hit, as he was a bit woozy and needed to come off to be evaluated for concussion. He passed and was able to return to the game. He faces a favorable matchup in Cleveland in Week 11.

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 16:27:22 -0800

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys rank 15th against the pass, allowing 246.0 yards per game with 12 touchdowns through eight games. Big Ben faces a favorable matchup and is an obvious must-stat fantasy play whenever active.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger practices in full

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 12:36:40 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) was a full participant at practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger had a very average performance in his return last week, but it's more probable than not that he was playing at less than 100 percent health. After a full week of practices, Big Ben should be back closer to his usual QB1 form in a solid matchup opposite the Cowboys.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger struggled early in his first game back from his knee injury but finished the game with decent numbers. He is still a risky option because of his injured knee but can still be a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger may not be 100 percent

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 10:58:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) may have been "rusty" and "still not 100 percent healthy" in a Week 9 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, according to head coach Mike Tomlin, who also admitted the game plan was to protect his injured quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: It's hardly shocking since Roethlisberger beat the original timeline from his meniscus surgery by at least a week, if not two, and has a history of performing poorly in his first game back from injuries. With that said, Big Ben tends to play well at home and should be considered a fantasy QB1 again as he gets closer to full health in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger struggles early

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 13:53:22 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger struggled through the first three quarters but finished 23-for-45 for 264 yards in a 21-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Nov. 6. Roethlisberger was 8-for-18 for 54 yards and an interception prior to the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger was slow to come back, and combined with the Ravens' defense this was not a strong return. Still, a strong fourth quarter redeemed Roethlisberger, and he should be ready for next week's big clash with the Dallas Cowboys.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger to start Week 9

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 08:33:37 -0800

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) will start Week 9's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger's ability to return to action less than three weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee is nothing short of remarkable. He should be viewed as a QB1 in all fantasy formats, although he is likely to have limited mobility.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger's status up in the air

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 07:44:49 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) remains a game-time decision for Week 9's game against the Baltimore Ravens, although team personnel believe he will play. However, the possibility exists that he could serve as the No. 2 quarterback if QB Landry Jones is named the starter.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. If he does play, he can still be viewed as a QB1, although he will probably have limited mobility. Owners should have an alternate option available in case he does not start this week.

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 19:50:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger looked "really good" in practice and looked like himself, according to WR Antonio Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger is expected to be a game-time decision against the Ravens in Week 9, but if he suits up, he is worth starting as a low-end QB1.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) will be a "true" game-time decision, according to league sources.

Steelers | Pittsburgh unsure of starting QB

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 15:26:02 -0700

The Pittsburgh Steelers have not decided if QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) or QB Landry Jones will start in Week 9, and it is expected to be a game-time decision, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger was limited during practice all week but is three weeks removed from undergoing knee surgery, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Roethlisberger is a risky option because he probably will have limited mobility but can still be a No. 1 quarterback for owners if he plays. Owners should avoid Jones in all leagues if he plays.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 3, due to his left knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben is still a question mark to play in Week 9 in Baltimore. If he suffers some sort of setback, or it is determined he needs more time to recover, Landry Jones would make another start.

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 19:19:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) called the torn meniscus he suffered in Week 6 a "freaky" injury and said he won't change his style of hanging in the pocket to make throws.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking like Roethlisberger will return in Week 9 against Baltimore, and he should be deployed as a QB1 if he suits up.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger limited

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 13:53:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger is one of the big names to really keep an eye on before the weekend's games. If he's active then he can be started immediately, particularly on fantasy squads with bye-week replacements already starting. It's a rivalry game against the Baltimore Ravens, too, so Big Ben should be more hyped than usual.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger could start Week 9

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 09:57:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) could return as soon as Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Roethlisberger was expected to miss between four to six weeks after suffering a torn meniscus in a Week 6 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: While this week's probable return has been publicly discussed for a while, this marks the first time a team official has backed it up. Roethlisberger's return is obviously good news for the entire offense - especially Antonio Brown - but expectations for Week 9 should be dialed back a little, if only to see if Big Ben favors the knee or not. This rivalry also tends to produce low-scoring slugfests as well, so owners shouldn't be afraid to go in another direction at quarterback this week.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger practices Monday

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 11:55:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) took part in practice Monday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger got some throws in last week, so this just confirms he is trending in the right direction for Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens, although it is far from a given he will actually get the green light to make the start. There figures to be several updates on his status throughout the week, but he should be considered a QB1 in fantasy if he is deemed healthy enough to play.

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 06:19:44 -0700

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is expected to play in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben has a history of returning quicker than initial timetables, but he needs to have a full week of practice first. He would be a midrange option against Baltimore.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's (knee) status for Week 9 is uncertain at this point, according to a source. Roethlisberger has said he hopes to participate in practice next week.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Roethlisberger has a chance to play against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9. He should be a starting option whenever he plays, but owners should have a backup plan ready.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger hoping to practice next week

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 10:44:30 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is hopeful he can return to practice after the team comes off its Week 8 bye, but he is not committing to a timetable for his return to game action. The Steelers are "cautiously optimistic" he could be ready to face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Expect several updates over the next 1 1/2 weeks, although owners should plan on Roethlisberger not making it back until Week 10 at the earliest, especially since the initial timeline for his recovery from a torn meniscus was between four and six weeks. Landry Jones was serviceable in Roethlisberger's absence in Week 7 and should be able to hold down the fort one more week if necessary, although he'd be a middling QB2 option against the Ravens.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger could play in Week 9

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 07:14:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) could return to action as soon as Week 9's game against the Baltimore Ravens, despite an initial diagnosis that he would be sidelined for four to six weeks with a torn left meniscus, according to multiple team sources. He has already been ruled out for Week 7's game against the New England Patriots and the club has a bye in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: QB Landry Jones will start for Pittsburgh in Week 7 but the team has no plans to work out or acquire any veteran quarterbacks while Roethlisberger is sidelined, indicating that he might not miss as much time as originally feared. Jones is not a great fantasy option and should be avoided in all formats.

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 12:49:21 -0700

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney said a two-to-three week timetable for QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is considered a best-case scenario but believes a fair range for his return would be two to six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has been ruled out for Week 7, so owners will need to check on his status after the team's Week 8 bye. Landry Jones will be the Steelers' starting quarterback in Week 7 but should be avoided in all leagues.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger could miss 4-6 weeks

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 07:50:28 -0700

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) could miss four to six weeks following surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. "Doc says my knee looked good, but there still was some stuff in there from when I had my bone bruise last season in St. Louis," Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "He said that might keep me out a little longer than just a simple meniscus tear. Maybe an extra week or so. But there's no way to put an exact timetable on it. It all depends on my pain and how I feel."

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers have a bye in Week 8, which means Big Ben could just miss three games. The team could opt to hold him out for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns because of the short week for Week 12 at the Indianapolis Colts. Landry Jones had a couple bright spots last season, but he's just a matchup play in DFS.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger ruled out for Week 7

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 10:00:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) will not play in Week 7 against the New England Patriots after undergoing surgery for a torn meniscus Monday, Oct. 17.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers go on a bye after this week, so it is quite possible he will make it back in time to suit up against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9 if all goes well with his recovery. Landry Jones will get the start against the Patriots, but he is well off the fantasy radar. Roethlisberger's absence is a severe temporary downgrade for the fantasy stock of Antonio Brown and Sammie Coates, and a slight hit to Le'Veon Bell as well despite the fact he might see a few more touches.

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 06:42:24 -0700

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is expected to have a cleanup procedure on his knee Monday, Oct. 17, which is likely to yield a short recovery time.

Fantasy Tip: Big Ben could just miss one game and be back in Week 9 after their bye week. Landry Jones is not a good play against the New England Patriots in Week 7.

Steelers | Big Ben might miss just one game

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 21:19:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) will have surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. He will not play in the Week 7 game against the New England Patriots, but the team has a bye in Week 8. There is no official timetable for Roethlisberger's return, but it is possible he might be ready for the Week 9 game against the Baltimore Ravens, missing just one game.

Fantasy Tip: Reserve Roethlisberger for Week 7, obviously, but know that his injury isn't as serious as Minnesota's Adrian Peterson, and he might only need a couple of weeks to recover.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger should be good to go if the MRI concludes he only has bruised and no structural damage. He is a fantasy must-start whenever he is in the starting lineup.

Steelers | Big Ben to struggle in Week 2?

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 22:53:32 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Last season he completed 58 of his 84 pass attempts for 544 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in two regular season games against the Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners cannot afford to sit Big Ben, not as long as he has No. 84 healthy and available. Despite last season's poor output against the 'Nati, Roethlisberger is a fantasy stud and worth using in Week 2 in all formats. Plus, he had five TD passes and just one INT in two games in 2014 against the Bengals.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger indicated the team may use the no-huddle offense more often this season. The Steelers used the no-huddle offense on 16 of Roethlisberger's 19 snaps during their third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger has had success in the no-huddle offense, so it should help his numbers if the team plays fast. He has lost some of his weapons because of suspensions and injuries, but he should still be a solid No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
