How much game does Ben Roethlisberger have left? This is the biggest question mark for him, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Fantasy GMs who may take a chance on the veteran. Roethlisberger only made it through two games in 2019 before an elbow injury knocked him out for the remainder of the season. In his one full game starting (Week 1 versus the Patriots), Roethlisberger didn't throw a touchdown. He was hurt the next week against the Seahawks and he failed to throw a touchdown in that abbreviated contest either. Roethlisberger is fully healthy entering 2020, one which could be the final season of his career. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin gave an update on Roethlisberger's rehab and it was all positive. 'As we sit here today, we are extremely confident in his readiness,' Tomlin said. 'We are enjoying the process that he's going through right now. Obviously, it's not without its angst. The guy is coming off a season-ending injury and surgery. But we like where we are. He's throwing on a rehab schedule, and it's going well, and we fully anticipate him being ready to go for that opener.' The Steelers have upgraded the talent around Roethlisberger this offseason. Before we get to the upgrades, Fantasy GMs need to know that top wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster should be back at full strength as well. A knee injury kept him out of four games last year and poor quarterback play after Roethlisberger was hurt led to a down season for the young and talented receiver. Having Smith-Schuster back with Roethlisberger should really boost the passing game. We saw James Washington emerge last year and that progression of his talent should continue as he enters year three of his career. He was the main deep target for the Steelers in 2019, averaging a healthy 16.9 yards per catch. He should be able to continue building chemistry with Roethlisberger this season. Diontae Johnson flashed some talent as a rookie in 2019. The third-round pick out of SMU last year has speed and can be considered an ascending talent for the Steelers offense. Add in rookie Chase Claypool, a second-round pick out of Notre Dame, and you can see a nice collection of talent around the veteran quarterback. Oh yeah, the team added move tight end Eric Ebron in free agency so there's yet another way Roethlisberger can attack a team...if he's healthy. That injury history...and Roethlisberger's age...have Fantasy GMs shying away from him in recent drafts. As of this writing, Roethlisberger has a current ADP of QB22 (13.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Latest News

Steelers | Chase Claypool worked out with QB (Thu Jul 30, 01:32 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Chase Claypool said he was able to catch some passes from QB Ben Roethlisberger this offseason.

Our View: Good news for the rookie here, and Fantasy GMs in dynasty leagues are certainly intrigued by the Notre Dame wideout. Claypool is a size/speed/strength prospect who lacks polish to his game. He does attack the ball in the air and uses his catch radius to snare passes that others couldn't. Claypool will work on special teams and as a reserve receiver for the Steelers in 2020.
