The relationship between Todd Haley and the Steelers quarterback has been noted to be a rocky one, but it appears they are clicking now better than ever. Haley is ready to roll this year with a deep receiving class Pittsburgh hasn't seen in quite some time. Roethlisberger has always been a class guy with the organization, but it appears this year he is taking things to a new level with his competitive nature and leadership. “He’s been in and around the building all the time and talking a lot of football. He’s come to camp in the same frame of mind. He’s taken the receivers and tight ends and is quizzing them on a nightly basis." said Haley. (Source: Observer-Reporter
Fantasy Impact: It's a good thing to see Roethlisberger with a Peyton-esque attitude as a leader of this young, offensive squad. With weapons like Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Lance Moore, Le'Veon Bell, and Dri Archer among other names, it is hard not to get excited about Roethlisberger's potential output this season. He is currently listed as the 16th best quarterback in the Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR) and the 110th overall fantasy player this year. This fantasy year seems deeper than ever with QBs, so why not wait later and grab a guy like Ben Roethlisberger? He flirted with career bests last year with a line of 4,261/28/14 while posting a very respectable completion percentage of 64.2%.
