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 Roethlisberger has torn meniscus     -- Sun Oct 16 11:00 pm --

Knee surgery required
The Post-Gazette learned Sunday night Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a torn meniscus in his left knee and will have surgery this morning. There is no timetable for his return to the team. (Pittsburgh Post Gazette)

FF Today's Take: Landry Jones will start Week 7 against the Patriots. Roethlisberger was injured in the 2nd quarter but returned to play in the second half. A more definitive update on Roethlisberger's recovery time will likely come later this week.
Injury TE Ladarius Green remains out     -- Wed Aug 10 4:28 pm --

No timetable available on his return from ankle surgery
The Steelers think they may have the best offense in the NFL, but they still have one big hole to fill at tight end, and the player they signed to fill it remains out with no expressed optimism he will return any time soon. Ladarius Green has not practiced a down with them yet. He had surgery on an injured ankle in January, did not participate in any spring practices with his new team and opened training camp nearly two weeks ago on the physically unable to perform list, where he remains. Mike Tomlin, asked Wednesday if Green were coming along, replied simply, “He’s on PUP.” But the expectations are sinking so low that when Ben Roethlisberger talked about the tight end situation Tuesday, he did not mention Green. Asked how Green was coming along, Roethlisberger answered with a two-shoulder shrug. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FF Today's Take: Ladarius Green's opening day status is firmly up in the air. We saw a similar situation in Jacksonville a year ago when Julius Thomas struggled to gain a consistent role with his new team after missing a large chunk of the team's preseason and early regular season. Drop Green in your rankings and be sure to check for updates over the next few weeks. While their prized free agent signee has been out, Pittsburgh has used a group of inexperienced players that offer very limited fantasy potential.
