Steelers | Big Ben goes over 500 yards in win

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 21:02:49 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 44 of his career-high 66 attempts for 506 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 14 win against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger shredded a Baltimore pass defense which hasn't allowed a 300-yard passer all season. He hooked up with Antonio Brown 11 times for 213 yards, as those two continue to click. He'll look to keep it rolling against the New England Patriots in Week 15.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger reaches milestone

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 19:59:35 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger became the eighth player in NFL history to reach 50,000 passing yards, doing so in the team's Week 13 victory Monday, Dec. 4, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Fittingly, he did it in style, leading his club from a 17-point deficit opposite a fierce division rival to pick up the win. Since a slow start to the campaign that saw him produce more interceptions than touchdowns in the first six weeks, Roethlisberger has settled in nicely, and in four of his last five games, he's logged at least 290 yards through the air. Keep riding him as your QB1 in the fantasy playoffs if he's on your roster.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger continues on roll

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 22:13:37 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 24-of-40 passes for 290 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the team's Week 13 win Monday, Dec. 4, against the Cincinnati Bengals. He also added one rush for four yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was Big Ben's third straight game with at least 290 passing yards, and over that stretch, he's tossed 10 touchdown passes compared to three interceptions. This is the version of Roethlisberger owners were waiting for following his quiet start to the season, and his excellence is coming at the most important time of the fantasy year. With the way he's going right now, he's as dangerous a QB1 as any in pro football.

Steelers | Four touchdowns for Big Ben

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 20:59:25 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 30 of his 45 passes for 299 yards and four touchdowns and rushed once for 10 yards in a 40-17 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger limited

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 14:01:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 13. The Steelers did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
