Summary

Ben Roethlisberger filled the air with footballs in 2018. He set career highs for passing attempts (675), passing completions (452), passing yards (5,129) and passing touchdowns (34). It's going to be interesting to see what the veteran does for an encore in 2019, especially since he will be without the services of Antonio Brown. The headache of dealing with Brown may be gone, but so are his 104 catches, 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns. That's a big hole to fill. Roethlisberger has a good connection with JuJu Smith-Schuster who now becomes their number one wide receiver, but there are question marks behind him. After putting up those numbers and losing a talent like Brown, it's easy to project the numbers for Roethlisberger dipping in 2019. That should be expected, but there's still enough there for him to be a top-10 fantasy QB. Last year with all that production, Roethlisberger was the no.3 player at his position. In late April, the Steelers gave Roesthlisberger a two-year, $63 million extension which will keep him in Pittsburgh through his age 39 season (2021). Even though he's talked about retirement plenty over the last few years, Roethlisberger is still near the top of his game but with this extension we see his days in Pittsburgh are coming to a close in a couple of years.
