Huddle Up: There is credence to home-field advantage and the impact it has on the human psyche, and vice versa in hostile environments on the road. Game scripts obviously play a big role in the frequency and length of passes, too. Roethlisberger is a borderline No. 1 fantasy quarterback, but keep in mind that Big Ben, and players in general, may have a harder time finding success on the road.
Posted: 2/17/2018 1:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger is coming off a solid 2017 season and has said he plans to play next season. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterbacks in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 2/7/2018 12:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben had his peaks and valleys in 2017, but he reached over 4,000 yards for the first time since 2014 and has now averaged 28.5 touchdowns over the last two seasons. With Antonio Brown, up-and-coming JuJu Smith-Schuster and (possibly) Le'Veon Bell, Roethlisberger has an elite supporting cast that enables him to achieve QB1 status.
Posted: 2/6/2018 1:11pm ET
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster came on later in the season when Martavis Bryant faded into fantasy oblivion. As Pittsburgh's No. 2 wide receiver, he has WR2 potential after tallying 80 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns in his first professional football season.

Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has plenty of weapons in the passing game, and he threw for at least 28 touchdowns for the fourth time in the last five years in 2017. He'll be a low-end QB1 heading into next season.
Posted: 1/15/2018 2:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger looked good in the Steelers' divisional playoff loss, throwing for 459 yards and five touchdowns. He'll be turning 36 years old this offseason, but Ben still has what it takes to succeed in the NFL. View him as a low-end QB1to high-end QB2 for 2018.

Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has plenty of weapons at his disposal, and he'll be a low-end QB1 if he does indeed return.
Posted: 1/14/2018 2:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben and the Steelers came up short, losing the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He finished the regular season with 4,251 passing yards, 28 touchdowns and a 93.4 quarterback rating, and he went over 50,000 career passing yards in 2017. There is a place reserved in Canton for his bust once he hangs up the cleats.
Posted: 1/14/2018 1:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger played well during the second half of the season and threw at least two touchdowns in each of his last eight games. Owners should monitor him this offseason because he has talked about retirement in the past. He will be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season if he continues playing.
Posted: 12/31/2017 5:39am ET
Huddle Up: With the Steelers having already clinched a playoff spot, it would have made little sense to play Roethlisberger in the regular-season finale, so this move is not a surprise. Landry Jones will get the start against Cleveland but he should not be considered a viable fantasy option in most formats despite the opponent.
Posted: 12/29/2017 12:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because there is a chance that Roethlisberger does not play this week. He would be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he starts, but owners will need other options ready if he is held out. Landry Jones would start if Roethlisberger sits and should be avoided in leagues.
Posted: 12/28/2017 6:39pm ET
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Gilbert is telling the truth, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see Roethlisberger sit all or part of the regular season finale. If he doesn't suit up, Landry Jones could be a cheap flier in DFS contests.
Posted: 12/28/2017 1:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has been playing very well during the second half of the season and will have a favorable matchup this week. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues but there is a chance that he sits at some point during the second half of the game if the team has a big lead.
Posted: 12/27/2017 7:09pm ET
Huddle Up: Remember that weird time in mid-October when Roethlisberger actually had more interceptions than touchdowns on the season? Yeah, seems like long ago, as the future Hall-of-Famer has been on quite the roll over the last two months. Considering the Browns are on tap for Week 17, Roethlisberger has a good chance at continuing his impressive run into the postseason.
Posted: 12/27/2017 1:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben said he wasn't worried about rust if he is held out or limited in Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. The team has a first-round bye wouldn't play again until either Saturday, Jan. 13, or Sunday, Jan. 14, depending on the NFL schedule.
Posted: 12/25/2017 4:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has thrown at least two touchdowns in each of the last seven games and at least 280 yards in five of those games. He should play next week against the Cleveland Browns and can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback.
Posted: 12/17/2017 8:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben nearly had a third touchdown, which might have been the game-winning score, but instant replay overturned it in a controversial ruling to some. He also lost Antonio Brown fairly early to injury and will be without him for the remainder of the regular season, so that hurts his fantasy appeal into Week 16 and Week 17.
Posted: 12/10/2017 9:02pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/6/2017 7:59pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/4/2017 10:13pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 11/26/2017 8:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Big Ben has posted huge numbers over the past two games, and he and Antonio Brown are back on the same page with five touchdowns during the span. Roethlisberger didn't look very good at the beginning of the season, but he's looking like a QB1 in most fantasy formats right now.
Posted: 11/16/2017 8:59pm ET
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.
