Player Outlook

Ben Roethlisberger will be a popular pick on Draft Day after averaging 22.0 Fantasy points per game last season and bringing home at least 20 Fantasy points in eight of 12 outings. While owners aren't as nervous about Roethlisberger's consistency anymore, they're again concerned about him staying healthy. He missed four games with injuries last season, the first time since 2012 that's happened. He'll also play this season without Martavis Bryant (suspended) and Heath Miller (retired), but he did see his team land Ladarius Green to help add some new dynamics to the passing game. Roethlisberger has Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell to throw to, which isn't too shabby. But what really puts Big Ben over the top is a great schedule void of tough secondaries. We'd lean toward taking Roethlisberger with a pick toward the end of Round 5 or early Round 6 depending on league format. Obviously he's a first-round choice in two-quarterback leagues.

Player News
  • Roethlisberger has reportedly lost at least 15 pounds this offseason, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler relays via the quarterback's agent, Ryan Tollner. The weight loss is a product of what the report describes as a "high-cardio plan" with team trainers, an approach designed to "alleviate potential pain" in the quarterback's joints on the heels of a 2015 season in which Roethlisberger endured various aches and pains, including knee, foot and shoulder woes. A full offseason to recover from his assortment of ailments, coupled with improved fitness, offers encouragement as the coming campaign approaches, though some other key variables remain in play when it comes to the prospects of the Steelers' offense in 2016. With that in mind, it will be worth monitoring the health of top running back (and highly capable pass-catcher) Le'Veon Bell, as well as the rapport Roethlisberger develops with new tight end Ladarius Green, who will look to fill the void created by the departure of long-time Steeler Heath Miller.

  • Roethlisberger will have a new passing target at tight end this season, with the Steelers having signed Ladarius Green in free agency. The move is notable, as the Steelers had a need at the tight end position following the retirement of Heath Miller, who caught 60 passes for the team in 2015. While Miller -- a long-time fixture in the Pittsburgh offense -- may be a tough act to follow, Green is viewed as a player with some untapped potential, after having worked in tandem with the productive Antonio Gates in San Diego for the last four seasons. In any case, the addition of Green and the re-signing of veteran wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey helps ensure that Roethlisberger will have a deep and qualified pass-catching corps (of course headed by WR Antonio BRown) on hand in 2016.

  • Roethlisberger (shoulder) does not think he will need surgery during the offseason, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Roethlisberger did acknowledge that he might eventually require a minor procedure to clean out the arthritis and scars caused by his torn ligaments. Regardless, he should be ready for the start of training camp, and he'll be surrounded by a top-notch supporting cast. Roethlisberger did turn in a few clunkers this season, but injuries -- both his own and his teammates' -- played a large role in the limited struggles. Even with his style of play inevitably creating a heightened injury risk, he'll be one of the top quarterbacks to target in 2016 drafts.

  • Roethlisberger completed 24 of 37 passes for 339 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. He failed to connect on a single touchdown pass. The veteran played as well as one could've asked, considering that he was dealing with an injury and the Steelers were without Antonio Brown and DeAngelo Williams, but he found touchdowns hard to come by against a stingy Broncos defense. Despite all of the factors working against him, Roethlisberger still kept his team in the game until late in the fourth quarter, demonstrating why he has become known as one of the best postseason performers at his position. Big Ben had a productive season despite dealing with multiple injuries and missing several of his top weapons throughout the year, and he should be a strong fantasy option next season when everyone is back to full strength.

  • Roethlisberger (shoulder) completed 24 of 37 passes for 339 yards in Pittsburgh's loss to Denver on Sunday. The AC Joint sprain and torn ligaments suffered to his throwing shoulder did not seem to be an issue, as Roethlisberger rebounded from his sub-par, 18 of 31, 229 yard performance in last week's win over Cincinnati. Big Ben finished the regular season completing 319 of 469 passes for 3,938 yards with a 21:16 touchdowns to interception ratio. He also ran for 29 yards on 15 carries. With 21 touchdown passes, Roethlisberger extended his consecutive seasons with at least 20 scoring throws to five - a Steelers record. It was also his fourth straight season with 300 completions to set a franchise record for the most consecutive 300-completion seasons. He is now 113-56 as a starter during the regular season, increasing his Steelers' franchise record for most wins as a starting quarterback (Terry Bradshaw, 107). Roethlisberger is an elite fantasy quarterback worthy of top 10 consideration in 2016, but is always an injury risk, having missed four game in 2015 and three or more games in three of the last six seasons.
