Roethlisberger signed an 8 year 102 million dollar contract in 2008. With 2 years left on that contract, team president Art Rooney II told steelers.com, "he met with Roethlisberger last month and that the Steelers have also talked to Ryan Tollner, Roethlisberger's agent, about their intention of getting a new contract done with their franchise quarterback after this season."

Fantasy Impact: The Steelers almost never negotiate during the season. Given the fact that Roethlisberger has 2 years remaining on his contract, shows the Steelers do not want the circus involved with playing and negotiating during the last year of a deal. Expect Roethlisberger to make this season his season to shine, thus giving him more leverage during the negotiations. With the speedy Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton at his disposal, he may try to stretch the field more to add to his yardage and TD totals. This may cause a slight bump in his current ADP of 126 overall and 16th ranked QB.

Big Ben can still sling it and he looked dominant in spurts last year. If the Steelers can add another weapon he should be a solid QB1 again.

The Steelers have informed Ben Roethlisberger that he won't receive a new contract until after the 2014 season. Is the franchise quarterback on board with the decision?

A Cutler-Big Ben platoon is a solid plan if you like to wait until the later rounds for your QB.

Quite possibly our biggest sleeper pick of 2014. To make sure you know we aren't crazy, Big Ben was ranked outside our top 20 last year, but for 2014 with a new uptempo, no huddle offense, we are buying big time on Roethlisberger, especially given his late round ADP. Grab him in the final rounds of all drafts this year, as he could easily be your starter by week 3

He is fully capable of having 4,000+ yard seasons and nearly 30 TDs. He is a solid back-up QB selection.

Big Ben had a great fantasy season last year. This is the reason you do not need to take a quarterback in the first or second round. Big Ben is a terrific fantasy option, there are just too many guys to put everyone in the Top 10.
