Player Outlook

Drafting Ben Roethlisberger will not only give your Fantasy team a powerful quarterback, but a consistent one as well. Over the past three seasons, Big Ben has delivered 20-plus Fantasy points 27 times in 41 games, a 65.8 percent success rate. It's a mark only beaten by Tom Brady (68.2 percent). Roethlisberger gets it done with a premium blend of stud receivers, a dynamic pass-catching running back and a good offensive line. The majority of those Fantasy bonanzas came at Heinz Field, but Roethlisberger did put his road woes on the back burner last year when he had multiple touchdowns in four of eight away trips. He'll go this year with former quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner as his offensive coordinator after Todd Haley was let go. Perhaps the biggest worry is Roethlisberger's health -- he's missed seven games in his past three seasons, no more than four per 16-game set. The good news is that there are a slew of great quarterbacks available this season, so drafting a backup for Big Ben with a late pick is a piece of cake. You should give strong consideration to Roethlisberger over quarterbacks like Drew Brees and Cam Newton based on his track record and the Steelers style of offense. Round 6 in non-PPR leagues and Round 7 in PPR should be the earliest you'd consider taking him, but don't be shocked if he falls in your lap several rounds later than that.

Player News
  • Roethlisberger did not suffer a concussion in practice Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Roethlisberger was evaluated by team doctors as part of the NFL's concussion protocol, but subsequently cleared. His absence from Thursday night's preseason game against the Packers was planned and the QB is slated to play next Saturday against the Titans.

  • Roethlisberger was removed from the NFL's concussion protocol Wednesday, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The Steelers were planning to hold Roethlisberger out of Thursday's preseason game against the Packers in any case, but now that he's medically cleared, the veteran signal-caller could see some snaps in the team's third exhibition game Aug. 25 against the Titans. With Landry Jones also not in line to play this week, the Steelers plan to turn things over Thursday to young quarterbacks Mason Rudolph and Joshua Dobbs.

  • Roethlisberger (concussion) traveled with the Steelers in advance of Thursday's preseason contest at Green Bay, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Roethlisberger was evaluated under the NFL's concussion protocol after banging his head on the ground at Tuesday's practice, which left him laying on the turf for multiple minutes. Just one day later, though, he got the all clear to travel, indicating he didn't actually enter the protocol. The Steelers likely will be prudent with their starting quarterback and hold him out Thursday, but Wednesday's development opens the door slightly that an appearance is possible.

  • Coach Mike Tomlin relayed that Roethlisberger, who sustained a hit in practice Tuesday, is being evaluated by team doctors as part of the NFL's concussion protocol, Steelers Director of Communications Burt Lauten reports. Roethlisberger is thus day-to-day for now and we won't see him in a game before Aug. 25, when the Steelers host the Titans in their third preseason contest.

  • Roethlisberger was removed from Tuesday's practice, possibly to be evaluated for a concussion, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Roethlisberger appeared to bang his head on the ground during practice, then touched his head a few times while talking with the Steelers' training staff. He's suffered three reported concussions in his pro career, with the most recent coming in November 2015 and not requiring any absences beyond the game in which he suffered the injury. The Steelers were already planning to hold Roethlisberger out for Thursday's preseason game against the Packers.
