Player Notes
Jan 24 12:20pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II said the team has already started talking about a contract extension with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who will be in the final year of his current deal in 2019. So, I think that Ben has some good years left. Hes still, I would say, close to being in the prime of his career and now that we see quarterbacks around the league that are playing into their 40s, I am not sure there is any reason why Ben cant play for several more years. So we are looking forward to that," Rooney said. Big Ben will be 37 in March, but he threw for a career-high 5,129 yards last season and also posted a career-high 34 touchdowns against 16 interceptions. Injuries are a concern as he ages, as well as the fact that Antonio Brown might not be with the team next year, but Roethlisberger still profiles as a sturdy QB1 for fantasy owners as long as he continues playing.

Jan 23 8:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has started contract extension talks with the Steelers, according to owner Art Rooney II. Rooney said he believes Roethlisberger could play for several more seasons.

Fantasy Spin: Roethlisberger recorded career-highs in yards (5,129) and touchdowns (34) this season but could lose Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown this offseason. He will still have several receivers to work with and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper fantasy leagues in 2019.

Jan 5 1:10pm ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to restructure quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's contract before the new league year begins on March 13, according to league sources. It would give the team more salary cap room if they decide to trade wide receiver Antonio Brown. The 36-year-old was one of the best fantasy QBs in 2018, throwing for a career-high 5,129 yards, 34 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. He'll head into 2019 as a strong QB1 target despite his age, although losing Brown would certainly be a hit to his value.

From RotoBaller

Jan 5 12:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to restructure his contract and receive an extension before the start of the new league year so the team could create some salary cap space.

Fantasy Spin: Roethlisberger played well this season, but it is not known who he will be throwing to next season. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback next season at this point.

Dec 31 1:03am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger finished 31-of-45 for 287 yards and a touchdown to go along with an interception in Week 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Roethlisberger added three carries for three yards.

Fantasy Spin: Roethlisberger threw a bad pick-six and didn't come anywhere close to matching the standard he set for most of the season, although the absence of Antonio Brown certainly did not help matters. The 36-year-old did become only the seventh quarterback in league history to throw for 5,000 yards in a season (5,129), however, and also set a career high with 34 passing touchdowns. With one of the best supporting casts in the league at his disposal, Roethlisberger should be considered a mid-tier QB1 in 2019.

Dec 30 10:10pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 31 of his 45 pass attempts for 287 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 16-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17. Despite the win, Roethlisberger didn't play particularly well in this one, with his interception getting returned by Shawn Williams for a 58-yard touchdown. Roethlisberger finishes the 2018 season with a career-high 5,129 passing yards and 34 passing touchdowns. He will be a locked-in QB1 in 2019 fantasy drafts.

Dec 28 4:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 28 and he is listed as questionable for Week 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals while LB Vince Williams (toe) did not practice and is considered doubtful. RB James Conner (ankle), S Sean Davis (quadriceps), OG Ramon Foster (not injury related), C Maurkice Pouncey (not injury related) and QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) each practiced in full and are off the report.

Dec 28 4:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 28 and is off the injury report ahead of the Week 17 game with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Spin: Roethlisberger and the Steelers desperately need to win and get a Ravens loss in Week 17 to make the playoffs. Big Ben should be slinging it early and often, much to the benefit of fantasy owners playing into the final week.

Dec 27 6:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.

Fantasy Spin: Roethlisberger has thrown at least two touchdowns in each of the last four games and will have a favorable matchup this week. He can be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

Dec 26 5:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (not injury related), S Sean Davis (quadriceps), C Maurkice Pouncey (not injury related), QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) and LB Vince Williams (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26. RB James Conner (ankle) practiced in full.

Dec 26 5:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.

Fantasy Spin: Head coach Mike Tomlin typically rests his big guns during mid-week practices, limiting the potential for injury before the game. Roethlisberger is fully expected to be ready for the ultra-crucial Week 17 game against the Bengals in a must-win game if the team wants a chance at the playoffs. Big Ben could put up huge numbers this week.

Dec 25 4:25pm ET

Pittsburgh's QB Ben Roethlisberger scored an impressive 33.40 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 16 loss in New Orleans. Roethlisberger threw for 380 yards on 33-of-50 with three touchdowns.

Dec 25 12:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger told KDKA-FM radio he has every intention of playing in 2019 but doesn't want to think about it until this season has ended, according to Chris Adamski, of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Fantasy Spin: Big Ben enjoyed a strong fantasy season and should have plenty left in the tank. A system that fits his style is highlighted by a pair of stud receivers, only further suggesting he should be a sound QB1 once again.

Dec 23 10:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 33-of-50 passes for 380 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Spin: Roethlisberger's Steelers are on the brink of elimination from the playoff hunt if things don't go a certain way in Week 17. However, it's through no fault of Big Ben, as he has been outstanding and one of the only reasons they're in the hunt to begin with. He'll look to finish up strong in Week 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dec 23 9:40pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 33 of his 50 pass attempts for 380 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 16. Despite the real-life loss, Roethlisberger delivered a huge fantasy performance for his owners in the fantasy championship round. The star quarterback will draw a fantastic matchup against a reeling Cincinnati Bengals defense in Week 17. If your league plays through the end of the regular season, treat Roethlisberger as a top-three fantasy quarterback.

From RotoBaller

Dec 23 8:30pm ET

Steelers' QB Ben Roethlisberger passed for 380 yards on 33-of-50 with three touchdowns in Sunday's loss in New Orleans.

Dec 21 4:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

Fantasy Spin: Roethlisberger likely will be throwing a lot against the New Orleans Saints because he could be a high-scoring game. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Dec 20 4:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Spin: Roethlisberger has thrown at least two touchdowns in seven of the last eight games but has also thrown nine interceptions during that span. He likely will have to throw a lot against the New Orleans Saints this week and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Dec 19 4:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee), LB Bud Dupree (knee), C Maurkice Pouncey (not injury related) and QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 19. S Terrell Edmunds (concussion) was a limited participant while DT Cameron Heyward (knee) practiced in full.

Dec 19 4:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 19.

Fantasy Spin: It's more of a mid-week veteran's rest than any concern of injury, even though he took a shot to the ribs a couple of weeks ago which was a legitimate ailment. He'll be fine for Sunday's shootout in New Orleans against Drew Brees and the Saints.
