Quick fantasy outlook: Ben Roethlisberger struggled in his first year under offensive coordinator Todd Haley. He only threw eight interceptions last season but most of them came at key parts of the game and led to defeat. Roethlisberger struggled in a system that de-emphasized the deep passing game. Haley's offense is all about short underneath passes and chipping your way down the field. Roethlisberger missed three games last season as the offensive line continued to disappoint. If guys like David DeCastro and Mike Adams can stay healthy then Roethlisberger should be able to stay healthy in 2013. Adding rookie running back Le'Veon Bell should help strengthen the running game which will keep defenses honest. This season Roethlisberger may feel less pressure to make something happen on his own because he'll have the help he needs. With a year experience under his belt in this system, better protection, and a more well rounded offense 2013 could be a bounce back year for Roethlisberger. On June 5th Roethlisberger underwent minor knee surgery to alleviate some discomfort he was experiencing. He should be full strength by the time training camp starts.
