    Pittsburgh Steelers

    Position
    QB
     
    Jersey
    7
    Name  Ben Roethlisberger
    Born  3/2/1982
    Height  6-5
    Weight  241
    College  Miami-Ohio
    1/4/2015 9:28:00 AM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 334 yards and one touchdown, but also was picked off twice.
    Insight: Turnovers kill playoff hopes. Big Ben's fantasy total isn't horrible, but his effort wasn't enough for the Steelers to overcome Baltimore.
     
    12/29/2014 9:50:00 AM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 319 yards and two touchdowns against Cincinnati.
    Insight: The last time Roethlisberger faced Baltimore, his Wild Card opponent for next Saturday, he passed for 340 yards and six touchdowns.
     
    12/21/2014 6:06:00 PM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisbergerthrew for 220 yards during Week 16's win over the Chiefs.
    Insight: He was 18-of-25 and had a touchdown as well. Roethlisberger now has 30 touchdowns and just eight interceptions on the season.
     
    12/21/2014 3:25:00 PM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has some sort of right knee injury, but is expected to return..
    Insight: Roethlisberger is the glue that makes the Steelers engine run and without him they would be lost.
     
    12/14/2014 5:02:00 PM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was very efficient but failed to score in Week 15.
    Insight: Roethlisberger was 27-of-35 and threw for 360 yards. That's good enough for a 10.3 yards per attempt average. Not finding the end zone, however, likely hurt his chances of taking many teams to the championship round.
     
    12/7/2014 5:23:00 PM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a big afternoon on Sunday.
    Insight: He threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns, and continues to be a solid QB1.
     
    11/30/2014 7:20:00 PM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a great fantasy day but not a great real life day.
    Insight: Pittsburgh fell behind 35-16 having to settle for field goal attempts four times. So with the help of garbage time, Roethlisberger went 32-of-58 with 435 passing yards and two touchdowns. Fantasy owners will take it but just recognize he wasn't anywhere close to that good.
     
    11/18/2014 9:19:00 AM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger took a back seat to the running game Monday night, throwing just 32 times for 207 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
    Insight: The game plan was obviously to run the ball first and pass second, so six touchdown passes wasn't a possibility.
     
    11/9/2014 6:59:00 PM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did not throw six touchdown passes, for a third-consecutive week.
    Insight: He did throw for 343 yards and one touchdown, but also was picked off twice. Roethlisberger still a QB1 heading into Week 11 against the Titans.
     
    Hot11/3/2014 10:06:00 AM
    Description: You can't get any hotter than Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
    Insight: For the second consecutive weekend Big Ben threw six touchdown passes. He was 25-of-37 for 340 yards and his five different receivers for scores.
     
    Hot10/27/2014 10:20:00 AM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger can now say he's done something no other quarterback in the history of the NFL has done.
    Insight: Big Ben can say "I've thrown for 500 yards in a game two times in my career." Sunday he was 40-of-49 for 522 yards and six touchdowns. Simply amazing!
     
    10/21/2014 11:05:00 AM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger struggled early in the Monday night game against Houston, but finished with a solid performance - 23-of-33 for 265 yards and two scores.
    Insight: Big Ben wasn't good early on, holding the ball too long, but he rebounded just before halftime in a big way.
     
    10/13/2014 6:31:00 PM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed just 50 percent of his passes for 228 yards, a touchdown and interception in the loss to the Browns on Sunday.
    Insight: Big Ben was awful, along with the entire Steelers offense. This unit has talent and gains yardage, but for some reason, cannot convert in the red zone. There were several other problems as well against Cleveland. Most of the Pittsburgh yardage also came in garbage time. For anyone who still thought he was, fantasy or otherwise, Roethlisberger is officially no longer an elite quarterback.
     
    9/28/2014 5:42:00 PM
    Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 29-of-40 passes for 314 yards and three touchdowns against the Buccaneers on Sunday.
    Insight: He was, however, sacked five times and did not seem to convert key plays at the end of the game to put Tampa Bay away. This was the most pass attempts Roethlisberger has had this year.
     
    9/28/2014 12:02:00 PM
    Description: Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger missed some practice time this week, due to a non-injury issue, but is ready to go Sunday.
    Insight: Big Ben threw for his fewest yards of the season (196), but should have a better time of in against Tampa Bay and Jacksonville over the next two weeks and should be in fantasy lineups.
     
    9/22/2014 11:32:00 AM
    Description: Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger was facing a tough pass rush in Carolina, but did manage a couple of TD passes to Antonio Brown.
    Insight: Big Ben threw for his fewest yards of the season (196), but should have a better time of in against Tampa Bay and Jacksonville over the next two weeks.
     
    Hot9/7/2014 6:15:00 PM
    Description: Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger went 23-of-34 for 365 yards and a touchdown against Cleveland.
    Insight: Big Ben could have posted so much more after a 278-yard first half, but the Steelers forgot to bring the offense out after halftime. The Roethlisberger-to-Antonio Brown combination looks unstoppable.
     
    8/21/2014 10:11:00 PM
    Description: Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger needed into the third quarter to get the Steelers on the board in the third preseason game against Philadelphia.
    Insight: He finished the night 15-for-24 for 157 1 TD and 1 INT. The Eagles defense isn't very good so this is disheartening.
     
    8/17/2014 12:57:00 PM
    Description: Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger was efficient in his time on the field in the Steelers second preseason game, throwing for 128 yards and two scores.
    Insight: Big Ben hit Antonio Brown for a 76-yard touchdown pass that should have caught fantasy owners attention. He also hit young Markus Wheaton on a 16-yard strike. Don't underestimate Roethlisberger's fantasy value.
     
    11/17/2013 5:26:00 PM
    Description: Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger outdueled Matthew Stafford Sunday afternoon by throwing for 367 yards and four touchdowns.
    Insight: Big Ben has thrown for 350-plus yards four times this season and reached four touchdowns twice in the last three games. However, he's also had seven games this season with just one touchdown.
