Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has been mired in a stretch of mediocrity, and this was the first time he has thrown more than two touchdowns all season and just the fourth time he has thrown zero interceptions. Despite the big performance, he should only be viewed as a streaming option against friendly matchups.
Posted: 11/15/2017 3:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben will be facing a Tennessee pass defense ranking 19th in the NFL, allowing 236.4 yards per game with 17 touchdowns allowed through the air across nine games.
Posted: 11/13/2017 2:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has been a disappointing option for owners in 2017 and only has 12 touchdowns in nine games. He has been playing a little better lately but probably should only be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.
Posted: 10/22/2017 8:24pm ET
Huddle Up: It wasn't a giant stat line for Big Ben, but it's a huge improvement over his last game at home when he had a career-high five interceptions two weeks ago against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He remains a low-end QB1 or must-start QB2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 in Detroit.
Posted: 10/15/2017 7:18pm ET
Huddle Up: The good news is that he cleaned up the interceptions after having a career-high five picks last week. His only touchdown was an acrobatic catch and run by Antonio Brown in the fourth quarter, or this line would be even worse. He'll look for better results back home in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals, but right now he is looking more like a QB2 in most fantasy formats.
Posted: 10/8/2017 2:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben's yardage total was fine, but two of his career-high five picks were returned for touchdowns and he finished with a terrible 37.8 passer rating. He faces another tough matchup on the road in Week 6 against the Chiefs, so it might be a good idea to go another way if you normally depend upon him.
Posted: 10/6/2017 1:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger plays well at home but will be facing the top ranked pass defense in the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has thrown for more than 250 yards only once this season but can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted: 10/5/2017 4:49pm ET
Huddle Up: There's no question Roethlisberger will suit up on Sunday against the Jaguars. While Jacksonville has sported a more-than-competent defense thus far, the Steelers are due for a real big day offensively, which could make this the first game they reach 27 points this season. He's still a QB1 in this matchup.
Posted: 10/4/2017 2:24pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has received Wednesdays off the last few weeks but will be ready to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5. He has not thrown for more than 263 yards in any game this season but has played better at home over the last few seasons. He may be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues but can be benched if owners have better options.
Posted: 10/1/2017 6:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben hasn't done anything special so far, totaling six touchdown passes with two interceptions while throwing for 243 or fewer yards in each of his past three outings. He has been putting up QB2-type production so far. He'll look for better results in Week 5 against the visiting Jaguars.
Posted: 9/29/2017 12:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has posted solid numbers so far this season but has not thrown for more than 263 yards in any of the three games this season. He struggled on the road the past few season and is facing a good Baltimore Ravens defense. Owners in most leagues can keep Roethlisberger on the bench this week.
Posted: 9/28/2017 2:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has been a decent fantasy option so far this season but likely is not posting the numbers that owners expected when the season started. He continues to be an average quarterback on the road, so owners may want to look for other options to use in their lineups.
Posted: 9/27/2017 1:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger likely just received a day off from the rigors of the practice field. The 2017 season has been a relative struggle for Big Ben so far and it doesn't look to get easier on the road against the Baltimore Ravens. He's a QB2 in Week 4.
Posted: 9/24/2017 5:06pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 9/22/2017 12:18pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 9/21/2017 2:16pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 9/20/2017 1:36pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 9/17/2017 2:56pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 9/10/2017 12:55pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/23/2017 5:52pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/16/2017 3:05pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/3/2017 7:18pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger was great at home but struggled on the road last year, making him a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 in 2017.
Posted: 7/28/2017 12:01pm ET
Huddle Up: The Steelers addressed life post-Roethlisberger by spending a fourth-round pick on Josh Dobbs this spring. With Big Ben talking about retirement already this summer and his wife encouraging him to do so, there's a decent chance he may be playing his final season. For fantasy purposes, he is a highly inconsistent low-end QB1 with severe home-road splits over the last few seasons.
Posted: 7/14/2017 6:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Fair or foul, the comments Roethlisberger made shouldn't have much impact on Bryant's fantasy value. If he can stay out of trouble, Bryant's big-play potential makes him a high-upside WR3.
Posted: 4/11/2017 12:35pm ET
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.
Posted: 4/7/2017 11:25am ET
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.
