Huddle Up: Heath Miller is gone and Ladarius Green didn't see much of the field last year due to poor health. Green would presumably be the favorite to start even if the Steelers do draft a tight end. If Green is fully healthy before the season begins, he can be drafted as a low-end TE1 to high-end TE2. As for Roethlisberger, he is over the hill and should no longer be regarded as a QB1.

Huddle Up: Roethlisberger suggested retirement was a possibility for him shortly after the team's AFC Championship loss to the New England Patriots, but few - including the Steelers - seemed to take him all that seriously. Even though he is coming back, Pittsburgh would be well-served to make finding his heir apparent a priority. For fantasy purposes, Big Ben should be considered a midrange to low-end QB1 in 2017.
Posted: 3/28/2017 7:57am ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben threw out some mild retirement shockwaves in the media, but he'll be in the midst of the midrange or upper-middle QB1 portions in fantasy.
Posted: 3/27/2017 7:23pm ET
Huddle Up: He's probably right, as it seems more likely than not that Roethlisberger will indeed be back for the 2017 campaign, especially considering that the 13-year veteran has been consistently excellent over the past handful of seasons. In fact, Big Ben has topped 3,800 passing yards in four consecutive years after reaching that plateau only twice previously. Fantasy owners can still look at him as their potential QB1.
Posted: 3/26/2017 3:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has said he is leaning towards playing but has not made an official decision, so owners should monitor the situation. The Steelers could consider adding a quarterback during the 2017 NFL draft even if Roethlisberger returns. He would be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he continues to play.
Posted: 3/19/2017 10:22am ET
Huddle Up: Very few people seemed to take the 35-year-old Roethlisberger seriously regarding his talk of retirement, and this report would seem to be further proof Big Ben may have just been testing the waters. The Steelers would be wise to start grooming his heir apparent, although it would make sense for them to wait until next year to do it since the draft class is expected to be significantly better. Assuming he returns as expected, Roethlisberger figures to be a low-end fantasy QB1 again in 2017.
Posted: 3/1/2017 11:32am ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger indicated that he was considering retirement this offseason, but most people believe that he will return for at least one more season. He struggled during the playoffs but posted solid numbers during the regular season. Roethlisberger can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season because of the weapons he has in the passing game.
Posted: 2/17/2017 3:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger hinted about retirement after the season, but most people believe that he will play at least one more season. He recorded 3,819 yards and 29 touchdowns in 2016 and will have most of his weapons back next season. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 1/31/2017 1:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger's long career has taken its toll. He hasn't played a full season since 2014 and has only played three full seasons in his 13-year career. If he does return, he's a borderline QB1, but it would probably safer to draft him as a high-end QB2.
Posted: 1/25/2017 3:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has had problems on the road in each of the last two seasons but has played very well at Heinz Field. He has mentioned the possibility of retirement after the season but there is a good chance he will be back for 2017. He should be considered a decent No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues if he plays.
Posted: 1/24/2017 9:32am ET
Huddle Up: It's likely a bit of an emotional reaction in the wake of a disappointing result in the AFC Championship this past weekend. Roethlisberger is only 34 and would owe Pittsburgh $18.6 million if he calls it a career, so the odds are he will be back in 2017. With that said, the Steelers probably need to ramp up their efforts to find his successor in the next draft or two.
Posted: 1/23/2017 12:13pm ET
Huddle Up: All things considered, Roethlisberger had a good game statistically, but the Patriots really limited the Steelers' big-play potential. A large part of that was due to Antonio Brown not finding much room as Malcolm Butler did a great job in coverage all game. Look for Butler to shadow Julio Jones as much as possible in the Super Bowl. Injuries and gradual decline make Roethlisberger a backup fantasy option next season.
Posted: 1/22/2017 6:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben was done no service by his receivers -- namely Sammie Coates, who dropped three catchable balls. Losing Le'Veon Bell early was costly, but New England largely bottled him up before his departure. Roethlisberger is a low-end QB1 or ideal backup in 2017 fantasy drafts.
Posted: 1/18/2017 1:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger will be fine for the AFC Championship game and will look to win his third straight playoff game. He has thrown two touchdowns and three interceptions in his first two playoff games and has struggled on the road this season. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 1/15/2017 9:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger ranks as a QB2 mostly because of his injury history, but he will get a shot at elite status again when he faces the New England Patriots in next week's AFC championship game. Roethlisberger wasn't playing earlier this season when Pittsburgh lost to New England in the regular season.
Posted: 1/13/2017 1:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger was able to practice in each of the last two games and will not be limited during the game. He will be playing in inclement weather and has struggled on the road, so owners should consider him a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 1/12/2017 12:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger should be fine for the playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He posted solid overall numbers during the regular season but has struggled on the road in 2016. He will be a risky option for fantasy owners and should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 1/11/2017 12:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger should be able to practice later in the week and likely will be in uniform for the Divisional Round playoff game. He has struggled on the road this season and may be limited by the foot injury, so owners should consider him a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 1/11/2017 9:44am ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben threw for 300 yards and five touchdowns in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the Chiefs were the best defense against opposing QBs in fantasy the last five weeks of the season. Roethlisberger will be an option under the elite tier in fantasy this weekend.
Posted: 1/10/2017 9:29am ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger was spotted wearing a walking boot at his postgame presser, but there have been multiple reports suggesting he will be fine for the Divisional Round game this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs. Given his road struggles over the past few years, Roethlisberger will be hard to trust as a fantasy starter in playoff leagues this weekend. Expect another heavy dose of Le'Veon Bell.
Posted: 1/9/2017 3:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger may he limited during practice this week but should be on the field for the Divisional Round playoff game. He will be a risky option for owners in fantasy playoff leagues because he has struggled on the road over the last few seasons. Owners should consider him a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.
Posted: 1/9/2017 6:47am ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben is expected to suit up against the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional round. The Chiefs were the best team against opposing QBs the last five weeks of the regular season in terms of fantasy points allowed. Roethlisberger has his hands full, but he'll be one of the upper-middle QB options in fantasy.
Posted: 1/8/2017 2:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation during the week to see if Roethlisberger is in any danger of missing the game against the Chiefs. He was already a risky option for owners because of his struggles on the road and should only be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.
Posted: 1/8/2017 2:11pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger did most of his damage in the first half of the game with two touchdowns in the first quarter but threw two interceptions in the second half. He will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense in the Divisional Round and will be a risky option for owners because he has struggled on the road over the last few seasons.
Posted: 1/7/2017 10:30am ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger will be at home against the Dolphins this week, which makes him a good option for owners because he has played much better in Pittsburgh. He threw 20 touchdowns and only five interceptions at home during the regular season. Owners in fantasy leagues should consider Roethlisberger a solid No. 1 quarterback for their lineups.
Posted: 12/29/2016 6:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger was back at practice, but he will not play in Week 17. Landry Jones will draw the start, and he could be worth a roll of the dice in DFS formats against the lowly Browns.
Posted: 12/27/2016 9:50am ET
Huddle Up: No surprise here, as the Pittsburgh is locked into a No. 3 seed during the AFC playoffs and has nothing to gain regardless of the result. Landry Jones, Fitzgerald Toussaint and Eli Rogers will likely be the Steelers' top offensive weapons this weekend, although Pittsburgh could easily choose to increase DeAngelo Williams' workload since he has seen only one snap since Week 8 following knee surgery. In such a favorable matchup, whomever starts between Toussaint or Williams could be a nice play in DFS.
Posted: 12/26/2016 7:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Following a weekend where Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota were knocked out due to broken fibulas, Steelers fans likely agree with Roethlisberger. However, anyone playing fantasy leagues into Week 17 likely disagree.
Posted: 12/25/2016 4:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger struggled in the first half of the game but posted most of his stats in the fourth quarter. He would have a favorable matchup if he plays in Week 17 but will be a risky option for owners because he could sit out the game or see limited playing time since the team has clinched the No. 3 seed.
Posted: 12/22/2016 8:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has been excellent at home this season, making him a low-end QB1 in Week 16 despite a tough matchup with Baltimore.
Posted: 12/21/2016 12:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger is just receiving a day off and should be fine for the Week 16 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He has been playing much better at home this season with 17 touchdowns and only three interceptions at Heinz Field. He will be facing a solid Ravens defense but can be a low-end No. 1 in deeper leagues.
Posted: 12/18/2016 2:54pm ET
Huddle Up: The elements sort of affected Roethlisberger's performance somewhat, but he had an effective-enough outing to pull out the win. He might be affected next week as well with a tough Baltimore Ravens defense as the opponent.
Posted: 12/14/2016 1:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger's problems on the road continued when he threw three interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14. He will be facing a solid Cincinnati Bengals defense this week and could be benched if owners have quarterbacks with more favorable matchups.
Posted: 12/11/2016 1:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has struggled on the road this season and this week was no exception. He has thrown two touchdowns and four interceptions over the last two games. He will be on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15 and should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback.
Posted: 12/8/2016 5:13pm ET
Huddle Up: As long as the weather in Buffalo is decent, Roethlisberger should be safe to use as a QB1 in Week 14.
Posted: 12/7/2016 1:44pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/20/2016 1:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger was dealing with wind and snow in Week 11, but owners likely were expecting more from him against the Browns. He will be facing the Indianapolis Colts next week and can be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.
Posted: 11/16/2016 9:32pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/15/2016 1:01pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/13/2016 8:47pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/11/2016 4:27pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/11/2016 12:36pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/10/2016 6:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger looked a little rusty in his return to the lineup last weekend, but he should continue to improve. Deploy him as a QB1 in Week 10.
Posted: 11/9/2016 2:31pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/8/2016 10:58am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/6/2016 1:53pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/6/2016 7:44am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/5/2016 7:50pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/5/2016 5:25pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger is expected to play against Baltimore in Week 9, but fantasy owners need to have a quality backup option at the ready just in case he can't suit up.
Posted: 11/5/2016 3:26pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
