2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Roethlisberger put together another workmanlike season in 2011, throwing for the 2nd most yards in his career (4,077) with 21 touchdowns. While those numbers are reasonably impressive, they were only good enough to rank as the 13th best fantasy quarterback and 14th on a FPts/G basis. He failed to put up starter quality fantasy points partly due to the decline in his rushing production, as he ran for just 70 yards and no touchdowns after averaging 125 yards and two touchdowns over the first seven years of his career. A late season high ankle sprain didn’t help matters, further proof that his refusal to throw the ball away increases his risk of injury. In 2012, Big Ben gets a new offensive coordinator in Todd Haley with Bruce Arians having been shown the door. While Haley’s Kansas City tenure was marked by huge production in the running game, he relied heavily on the pass as the Cardinals offensive coordinator so concern that the Steelers will pound the ball on the ground is overblown, especially considering that largely unproven Isaac Redman will assume the starting role while Rashard Mendenhall recovers from a torn ACL. With a pair of quality starting wide receivers in Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown and the talented yet injury-prone Emmanuel Sanders coming off the bench, the Steelers may actually throw the ball more this season. Consider Roethlisberger a low-end fantasy starter but one who could surprise on the upside, provided the offensive line replenishments work out. He could be a bargain on draft day.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Big Ben to test foot injury in practice     -- Wed Jan 11 12:29 pm --

Steelers QB expected to practice in full throughout week
PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger walked with no noticeable limp three days after injuring his right foot in Sunday's AFC wild-card game. Roethlisberger is expected to get a full practice workload this week. Coach Mike Tomlin said the Steelers would monitor Roethlisberger's foot closely, but he doesn't anticipate any setbacks. (ESPN.com)

FF Today's Take: Ben Roethlisberger is always dealing with some sort of ailment and always seems to play when the games matter most. Fantasy owners should be more concerned with the Kansas City defense. The Chiefs have only allowed two passing touchdowns over their past four games.
Injury Ankle injury to Big Ben not considered serious     -- Mon Jan 9 10:00 am --

Expected to play against Chiefs
The Steelers quarterback arrived to his postgame news conference Sunday with a boot on his right foot following Pittsburgh's 30-12 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Wild Card Weekend. He said that he hurt his ankle on his second-to-last play of the win. After the game, Ben Roethlisberger underwent tests on his ankle, which confirmed the injury is not serious, sources informed of the injury told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Monday. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Regardless of his ankle or shoulder injuries, Roethlisberger will be on the filed this Sunday against the Chiefs. His home/road splits are notable but he'll be a viable QB1 in daily formats.
Big Ben, Bell and Brown won't play for Steelers     -- Wed Dec 28 1:00 pm --

Landry Jones expected to start at QB
"There are several guys that I will look hard at preserving and protecting as we get into the playoff round with the understanding that we are the three seed," Tomlin said Tuesday. Not only will Ben Roethlisberger not play, but neither will Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Maurkice Pouncey. (Pittsburgh Post Gazette)

FF Today's Take: Since the Steelers can't improve their playoff position, the big three will sit leaving Landry Jones to start at quarterback. The running back starter remains a question mark as DeAngelo Williams is coming off a knee injury. Fitzgerald Toussaint could see significant action.
Steelers likely to rest their studs Week 17     -- Mon Dec 26 6:50 pm --

Bell, Big Ben, Brown all expected to rest or play limited snaps
You can bet Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, James Harrison won't play. Antonio Brown probably will lobby to play. No one slightly hurt. (Ed Bouchette on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: With the Steelers locked into the No. 3 seed, they have no reason to take any chances with their main weapons. Bell's absence would give DeAngelo Williams an opportunity to prove he is ready to be the man again should Bell get injured during the playoffs, and the matchup doesn't get much better than against the Cleveland Browns at home. If he gets the nod, don't hesitate to fire up Williams in DFS this week.
Injury Roethlisberger will start     -- Sun Nov 6 11:35 am --

Won't be 100 percent
Steelers confirm Ben will start. (Ed Bouchette on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Ben Roethlisberger is going to give it a go. He's an obvious upgrade for Antonio Brown and the Steelers offense as long as he is in the game. He's had a notable history of not playing his best in games returning from injury.
Injury Roethlisberger a gametime decision     -- Sun Nov 6 8:00 am --

Knee injury
Steelers have not yet decided which QB will start Sunday at Baltimore, per league sources. It is expected to be "a true gameday decision." (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Ben Roethlisberger has been limited in practice this week but the prevailing wisdom is that he will play today against Baltimore. Luckily, the Steelers-Ravens game is an early kickoff so we should know the QB's status soon.
