Summary

After two top-10 fantasy seasons in a row, Ben Roethlisberger missed four games and parts of others but was still able to finish the year as QB21 in standard-scoring leagues. The Steelers offense is going to be without WR Martavis Bryant (suspension), but we still expect them to be among the most pass-happy teams in the NFL. The reason? The Steelers defense stinks...especially compared to what it used to be (and traditionally is). That means the offense is going to have to do the heavy lifting for the Steelers if they want to make a run to the playoffs. RB Le'Veon Bell will be back and healthy this year, and he's capable of catching 80 or more passes out of the backfield. Roethlisberger should once again lock onto Antonio Brown, but we'll have to see how the other targets shake out. Heath Miller has retired, and the dropsies abound with WRs Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey. Perhaps Markus Wheaton will establish better chemistry with his QB this year. No matter who comes through, we have a strong belief that Roethlisberger will once again be a top-10..maybe even top-5...fantasy QB if he's healthy and plays all 16 games. (May 18)
