Fantasy Team Advice
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
Few QB's disappointed in 2013 like Eli Manning, but much of that could be blamed on his O-line, and OC. This year, the Giants will feature a new OC, an upgraded O-line, and new WR threat in Odell Beckham, meaning that Eli is prime for a bounceback. He is a QB that can be grabbed in the final rounds on draft day as a backup, so don't reach too early, as the 2 time super bowl winner has to prove himself once again in 2014
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
The Steelers were top 10 in passing attempts last season and they should continue this year. Roethlisberger was a Top-5 fantasy QB toward the end of last year and I think that he and Todd Haley are finally on the same page.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Big Ben had a great fantasy season last year. He threw for 4,261yards, 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, but was still only the 12th ranked fantasy quarterback. 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.
The New York Giants have a new offensive coordinator, but Eli Manning was so terrible last year that I do not think I would want to own him in 2014. He's been bad for 1.5 years and is in danger of losing his job if things do not change in 2014. The addition of Odell Beckham Jr. was nice, but the Giants still have to figure out how to block for Manning. Manning has looked lost in the preseason playing under a foreign West Coast offense.

Top 10 upside to be had in the 10th round.
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He is fully capable of having 4,000+ yard seasons and nearly 30 TDs. He is a solid back-up QB selection.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
The departure of WR2 Emmanuel Sanders will definitely not help Big Ben, however, Pittsburgh has a lot of faith in 2nd year Speedy WR Markus Wheaton. Pittsburgh also acquired Lance Moore who will be their WR3. Antonio Brown is coming off a successful year in OC Todd Haley’s hurry up offense, which they look to implement again this season while using Le’Veon Bell as an every down back. This hurry-up offense will only help Pittsburgh’s questionable offensive line. WR2 Markus Wheaton is Pittsburgh’s biggest WR standing at 5’11/180 with Antonio Brown standing at 5’10/186 and Lance Moore at 5’9/190. This should make Heath “Healthy” Miller, 6’5/256, a lock for 10+ TD’s and a main Red Zone Target.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Career highs in attempts and completions last year. Bargain buy.
Eli as a West Coast QB? Mildly intriguing if price is right.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
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.
Some think Eli Manning is headed on a downward spiral. Some say he's already there. Based off of what we saw in 2013, both assumptions need to be considered.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
Failure to address the offensive line and his own propensity for turnovers leave Manning undesirable at QB this year.
