Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger only played one series against the Buffalo Bills this weekend, completing 2-of-4 passes for 30 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Big Ben doesn't need much preseason playing time to be effective in regular season games. Of bigger concern are OL Maurkice Pouncey's injury and the loss of WR Martavis Bryant for the first four games of the season. Expect Roethlisberger to put up low-end QB1 numbers to start the season.

The Steelers have a tough schedule, but Roethlisberger is an elite QB in real life and also in fantasy.

When you have Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant on your team, you should be able to put up some decent passing numbers and when your defense is moving the wrong way on the scale of good to bad, you will need to score a bunch of points to win games and that usually means throwing the ball.

For our crew, after Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson, there's a strong debate regarding which QB should come next in 2015 fantasy drafts. Brad Evans leans toward 'Forehead Frankenstein,' Peyton Manning (34.5 Yahoo ADP, QB4), who's looking to recover from a slow finish last fall in Denver. Meanwhile, Brandon Funston loves him some Ben Roethlisberger (51.7, QB7), who's looking to m...
