Ben Roethlisberger looking to keep rolling in Week 5
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is off to the most productive start of his career, and he will look to keep rolling in Week 5 against the Jaguars.

The only concern Fantasy owners should have about Roethlisberger's value in Week 5 is whether he will throw enough or rack up the kind of numbers you are hoping for. Roethlisberger is attempting 35.3 passes per game, and passing for 273 yards as a result. If the Steelers don't open up a lead early and shut the passing game down, he should easily reach his season averages against a defense that is allowing opposing quarterbacks to average 28.0 Fantasy points per game.

The good news is, opposing quarterbacks are attempting 40-plus throws per game against the Jaguars, mostly because it is just too easy to pass against them not to. Roethlisberger should put together another solid game, and should be considered a strong starting option for Week 5.

Ben Roethlisberger takes advantage of matchup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Facing the same Buccaneers defense that got shredded by Matt Ryan and company on national TV in Week 3, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger turned in his best game of the season, throwing for 314 yards and three touchdowns.

So that's two big-yardage games in four. The other -- a 365-yard effort in Week 1 -- came against a Browns defense that has also struggled against the pass. The Ravens and Panthers, meanwhile, had fared pretty well prior to Week 4.

Through four games, Roethlisberger is looking like one of the more predictable matchup plays at the quarterback position, which means you'll probably want to keep him active for Week 5 at Jacksonville.

Ben Roethlisberger throws for 300 yards and three TDs in loss
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger can't be blamed for a stunning late loss to Tampa Bay in Week 4. He produced arguably his finest game of the young season.

The veteran overcame five sacks to complete 29 of 40 passes for 314 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He hit favorite target Antonio Brown for a 10-yard score with 15 seconds remaining in the first quarter and found him again for a 27-yard touchdown early in the second. His perfect bomb to an open Brown in the fourth clanked off the receiver's hands.

Roethlisberger also popped in a 5-yard score to tight end Heath Miller midway through the third quarter, but the team failed to score again.

He hit six different receivers in the first quarter and nine in the game. He will try lead the Steelers to victory next Sunday in Jacksonville.

Steelers strong physically for game against Buccaneers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cornerback Ike Taylor and linebacker Ryan Shazier are out, but the Steelers are otherwise in good shape for their Sunday clash against visiting Tampa Bay. Only one other player on their Friday injury report has been designated any worse than probable. That is guard Ramon Foster (ankle), who is questionable.

The probables are running back Dri Archer (ankle) and wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle). Standouts such as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, tight end Heath Miller, safety Troy Polamalu and defensive end Brett Keisel are all probable with non-injury related issues.

Ben Roethlisberger ends touchdown drought
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who had failed to lead a touchdown drive in more than eight quarters, threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's 37-19 win at Carolina. Roethlisberger completed 22 of 30 throws and did not commit a turnover.

As usual, Big Ben's favorite target was Antonio Brown. The duo hooked up 10 times for 90 yards, including a pair of 7-yard scores in the third quarter. The first was vintage Big Ben as he pump faked, scrambled out of the pocket and flipped it to the back corner of the end zone where Brown tapped his feet in.

Roethlisberger will try to keep it going Week 4 against the Buccaneers.
