  • Ben Roethlisberger Throws Three Interceptions In Win

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger struggled in a 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. Roethlisberger completed 32 of 49 passes for 268 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the win. He connected with wideout Diontae Johnson for both of his touchdowns, giving the veteran 13 scores on the year. Overall, it was a rough outing for Roethlisberger, who came into the game with just one interception on the year. Roethlisberger may struggle to shake off the poor outing in Week 8 against a tough defense employed by the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Ben Roethlisberger A QB1 Versus Tennessee

    After throwing just one touchdown in Week 6, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger settles in as a low-end QB1 in fantasy for his Week 7 road matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee's defense has struggled to stop the pass this season, ranking 24th in pass-defense DVOA and allowing the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the quarterback position. This game has the potential to be high-scoring, which would force Roethlisberger to throw much more often than he did in his quiet Week 6 performance against the Cleveland Browns. Fantasy gamers should be starting Big Ben this weekend unless they have another top-six fantasy quarterback rostered.

  • Ben Roethlisberger Throws One TD In Easy Win

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 14 of 22 passes for 162 yards and a touchdown in an easy 38-7 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. Roethlisberger also added five yards on three rushes in the lopsided victory. The Steelers got off to an early lead and ripped off three rushing touchdowns, which limited Roethlisberger's fantasy production on the afternoon. He has played extremely well through his first five games, throwing 11 touchdowns and just one interception. He draws a Week 7 matchup against the Tennessee Titans.

  • Ben Roethlisberger A Solid QB1 Vs. Browns

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is off to an excellent start through the first four games of the season. He has passed for 1,016 yards and tossed 10 touchdowns to just one interception in leading his squad to a 4-0 record. Roethlisberger will square off against the division-rival Cleveland Browns at home in Week 6. Cleveland is allowing the ninth-most fantasy points per game to the quarterback position, thanks to a pass defense that ranks just 19th in DVOA. Fantasy gamers can trust Roethlisberger as a solid QB1 for contests in Week 6.

  • Ben Roethlisberger Throws Three TDs In Week 5

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 27 of 34 passes for 239 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-29 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5. After losing leading wide receiver Diontae Johnson in the first half, Roethlisberger went on to hit rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool for all three of his touchdown passes in the big win over the Eagles. Roethlisberger has been excellent through four games, posting 10 touchdowns and just one interception. He will be a quality fantasy option in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

  • Ben Roethlisberger A Low-End QB1 Vs. Eagles

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will face the Philadelphia Eagles at home in Week 5 after coming off a surprise bye in Week 4. The bye, which was forced by positive COVID-19 tests from several members of the Tennessee Titans, came at an opportune time for the Steelers as wide receiver Diontae Johnson was unlikely to clear the league's concussion protocol in time. Johnson is fine for Week 5, giving Pittsburgh a full complement of weapons as they take aim at a Philly defense that is tough against the run and average vs. the pass. Roethlisberger has been solid through three games and can be trusted as a low-end QB1 in Week 5.

  • Ben Roethlisberger Throws Two TDs In Week 3

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 23 of 36 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-21 win over the Houston Texans in Week 3. It was another solid outing for the veteran, who now has seven touchdowns and just one interception on his way to leading the Steelers to a 3-0 start. Roethlisberger found JuJu Smith-Schuster for a 26-yard touchdown in the second quarter and Eric Ebron for a 10-yard score in the back right corner of the end zone. The Steelers will travel to Tennessee to face the Titans in Week 4.

  • Ben Roethlisberger A Low-End QB1 In Week 3

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has done enough over the first two weeks for fantasy gamers to trust him as a low-end QB1 going forward. After missing all but two games in 2019 with an elbow injury, he has shown that his elbow is healthy on the way to completing 50 of 73 passes for 540 yards, five touchdowns, and just one interception through two games. He gets a plus matchup against a weak Houston Texans pass defense in Week 3, making him a solid fantasy quarterback option in all formats. Houston's pass defense ranks just 23rd in DVOA through two weeks and should provide little resistance to Big Ben and his talented pass catchers this weekend.

  • Ben Roethlisberger Tosses Two TDs In Week 2

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 29 of 41 passes for 311 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in a 26-21 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 2. Roethlisberger found rookie Chase Claypool on a deep pass down the left sideline for an 84-yard touchdown in the second quarter and then hooked up with Diontae Johnson for a 28-yard score at the end of the third. It was a solid outing for Roethlisberger, who has looked pretty good over the first two games of the season after missing almost all of the 2019 season. He will take 540 passing yards, five touchdowns, and one interception into his Week 3 showdown against the Houston Texans.

  • Ben Roethlisberger Extra Sore After Monday Night Game

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he was pretty sore after the Monday night win over the Giants in Week 1, his first game in 364 days after suffering a season-ending elbow injury in 2019. "I was saying today I feel like I was just in a car accident. Yesterday I felt like I was in a trainwreck. Hopefully tomorrow it'll feel like I just fell off a bike," Roethlisberger said. But the good news is that Big Ben's surgically repaired right elbow feels fine. To help keep him fresh, he'll continue to take Wednesdays off. He looked a bit rusty early in Week 1, but Roethlisberger eventually settled in to go 21-for-32 for 229 yards and three touchdowns. Against a Broncos secondary that will be starting two secondaries this Sunday, Big Ben will be a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 play.

  • Ben Roethlisberger Throws Three Scores In Week 1

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 21 of 32 passes for 229 yards and three touchdowns in a 26-16 win over the New York Giants in Week 1. He also added three rushes for nine yards in the win. Roethlisberger got off to a slow start in his first game action since Week 2 of last season but he knocked off the rust as the game went on. He found JuJu Smith-Schuster for two scores and added a third touchdown to James Washington in the winning effort. The veteran's surgically repaired elbow didn't appear to be an issue in the game as he looked sharp on the field. Roethlisberger will be on the QB1/QB2 borderline in Week 2 in a home matchup against the Denver Broncos.

  • Ben Roethlisberger A Low-End QB1 In Week 1

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will take the field on Sunday for the first time since he injured his throwing elbow in Week 2 last season. The Steelers will open the year by taking on the New York Giants on the road in a prime matchup for the passing attack. Roethlisberger comes with some question marks as he hasn't played in a while and is entering his age-38 season but he certainly draws a plus opponent to allow him to shake off the rust as the Giants were very leaky against the pass in 2019. The last time Big Ben played a full season, he attempted 675 passes in 2018 but it is hard to say whether the Steelers will be as pass-heavy in 2020. For now, consider Roethlisberger a low-end QB1 for his Week 1 matchup.

  • Ben Roethlisberger Pleased With His Arm Strength

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told reporters on Thursday that he's "pleasantly surprised at how good his arm strength has been." Roethlisberger, of course, underwent Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow last season after appearing in just two games. Roethlisberger recently admitted that he had been playing through pain in his elbow for about 13 or 14 years before undergoing surgery last year. The Steelers are banking on a full return to health for Roethlisberger after watching their 2019 season torpedoed by poor quarterback play from Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges. Roethlisberger is worth a look as an upside QB2 in fantasy drafts.

  • Ben Roethlisberger's Arm Feels Really Good

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told ESPN reporter Aditi Kinkhabwala that his arm "feels really good" in a Zoom call on Tuesday. Roethlisberger missed almost all of the 2019 season after tearing three flexor tendons in his right elbow. The veteran quarterback also stated that he has thrown way more than usual during the offseason and is in tremendous shape entering his age-38 season. Many signs point to a revitalized Pittsburgh offense this season with Roethlisberger back under center, although there is at least some concern as he's entering his 17th NFL season and has a long injury history. That being said, he's still a huge upgrade on offense over Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges from a year ago. Draft Big Ben as an upside QB2 in fantasy drafts this month.
