Fantasy Analysis | 1411070940
Ben Roethlisberger a risky starter in Week 3
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger might be a quarterback to avoid in Week 3 at Carolina.

Roethlisberger is off to another slow start for the second year in a row with 24 Fantasy points combined in his first two games against Cleveland and Baltimore. Last year, Big Ben had 25 points in his first two outings against Tennessee and Cincinnati before getting 20 points against Chicago at home.

A similar situation could unfold this week against the Panthers, but Carolina was able to contain Matthew Stafford in Week 2 and should have similar success against Roethlisberger. The Panthers have a 10-game streak of not allowing a quarterback to score multiple touchdowns, which extends back to Week 14 in 2012, including matchups with Matt Ryan, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Stafford and Russell Wilson.

Roethlisberger will face a heavy pass rush in this game, and he is not a recommended starting option in most formats.

Ben Roethlisberger still hurting from 'significant shot'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Tuesday he's still hurting from the illegal hit he received from Ravens linebacker Courtney Upshaw last Thursday, reports Steelers Depot. The hit, which drew a roughing-the-passer flag, occurred on Pittsburgh's first possession.

"I lost my breath instantly and remember hitting the ground thinking, 'Boy, that hurt a lot,'" Roethlisberger said in a radio interview about Upshaw burying himself into the quarterback's chest. "I kind of pride myself on not taking those big hits, but I sure as heck didn't see it coming."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Roethlisberger was hurting the rest of the game. "That was a significant shot, but that comes with the territory and that's something that he's embraced over the years," the coach said.

Ben Roethlisberger held without a touchdown Week 2
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was held without a touchdown Week 2 against the Ravens.

Roethlisberger completed 22 of 37 passes for 217 yards. He threw one interception during the game. Roethlisberger had a tough time getting any passes down the field. He averaged just 5.9 yards per attempt. Roethlisberger was a victim of poor luck as well. After leading a long drive to open the game, the Steelers turned the ball over on a fumble. The team would also fumble away another possession in the fourth quarter. Roethlisberger was able to get the team into Ravens territory a few times, but couldn't find a way to get into the end zone.

Roethlisberger will take on the Panthers Week 3.

Stud Steelers ready to go Week 2
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Steelers will go into Week 2 with all of their stud offensive players. 

A number of important players entered the week listed as probable on the injury report. Nearly all of them are active Week 2 against the Steelers. Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Ben Roethlisberger, Cody Wallace and Markus Wheaton were all cleared to play. While they were all on the injury report, only Wallace was dealing with an injury. The rest missed practice for non-injury reasons. 

On defense, the Steelers will have Brett Keisel, Steve McLendon, Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, Shamarko Thomas and Vince Williams. Wallace was dealing with an ankle issue, but the rest were listed for non-injury reasons.

First-half explosion leads to 365-yard day for Ben Roethlisberger
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Make that 18-1 lifetime for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger against the Browns.

What appeared to be a walk in the park, however, turned into a super struggle for Roethlisberger on Sunday. Only an 11-yard to Marcus Wheaton with time running that set up the game-winning field goal allowed him to remain undefeated against Cleveland in Pittsburgh.

Roethlisberger finished 23 of 34 for 365 yards, one touchdown and one interception. It appeared he was destined to put up even better numbers when he set a personal record with 278 yards through in the air in first half and fired a 35-yard scoring strike to featured receiver Antonio Brown five minutes in the second quarter.

The veteran found tremendous success in the first half throwing short passes to backs and longer ones to Brown, but his line broke down under a fierce Cleveland rush thereafter, limiting him to 87 yards passing after intermission.

Roethlisberger and his Steelers play at Baltimore on Thursday night.
