Summary

Forget the retirement talk, Ben Roethlisberger seems energized this offseason and wants to play a few more years for the Steelers. He's got great weapons around him with guys like RB Le'Veon Bell and WRs Antonio Brown plus JuJu Smith-Schuster to throw to once again in 2018. Roethlisberger will be working with his former quarterbacks coach as the team's new offensive coordinator. Randy Fichtner spent the last eight years developing a strong rapport with Roethlisberger, and he should craft a system that works to Big Ben's strengths. Roethlisberger could once again post a top-10 season at the position if he stays healthy, but right now he's getting drafted as a mid-range QB2 by fantasy owners. (June 4)

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger on the field Saturday (Sat Aug 18, 03:09 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (head) is a full participant during practice Saturday, Aug. 18.

Our View: Roethlisberger is trending to be ready for the dress rehearsal for the regular season aka week three of the preseason. He was cleared from the concussion protocol only a couple of days ago.

Steelers | No concussion for Ben Roethlisberger (Thu Aug 16, 07:50 PM) - Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (head) went through the concussion protocol even though he did not suffer a concussion during practice, according to a source.

Our View: Roethlisberger got nailed by his own offensive lineman in practice, but seems to be fine. A decent QB2, he will perform well with Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster and LeVeon Bell to use.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger to be on field soon (Thu Aug 16, 02:48 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (concussion) likely will participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 18, and should be available to play in the third preseason game.

Our View: Whether the Steelers play him in that game is another matter because they cannot afford to lose him for the start of the season. Roethlisberger is a high-end QB2 both in reality and ADP right now. As long as he has Antonio Bryant and JuJu Smith-Schuster to throw to, he should be fine.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger good to go (Thu Aug 16, 12:36 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (concussion) is out of the concussion protocol.

Our View: We don't expect to see a ton of him before Week 1, but it seems as if he is out of the woods. Roethlisberger isn't a top fantasy quarterback, but he flirts with top ten numbers many weeks out of the year. He's an outstanding part of a QBBC and a serviceable option as your QB1 if you have a solid backup as well.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger believed to be fine (Wed Aug 15, 07:09 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (concussion) is believed to be fine and traveled with the team for their preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

Our View: The Steelers will be cautious with Roethlisberger as he deals with this concussion. He should be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.
