Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Titans allowed the 8th most points to fantasy quarterbacks last year and the Steelers have a weakened running game with RB Le'Veon Bell sidelined. I expect Big Ben to be a borderline QB1 this week.   
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
Tennessee gave up the 9th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 19.2.   
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Titans are terrible on defense, so Big Ben could shock with a stellar week 1 outing.   
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
The Steelers lost their starting running back and will most likely need to throw to win. Roethlisberger has had the Titans number in 4 previous games passing for an average of 300 yards and 2.75 touchdowns. Last season he threw for 363 yards with one touchdown and one interception against them. The Titans pass defense was one of the worst in the league last season giving up the second most touchdowns, the seventh most yards and second worst completion percentage.   
Raju Byfield

Losing 60 minutes a major blow; Steelers hopeful Wheaton and Bell can help fill void on offense   
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
He'll be without Mike Wallace (Dolphins) and Heath Miller for a while (injury), and the Steelers are reportedly interested in getting back to their ways of pounding the football via the ground game. None of this bodes particularly well for Big Ben's fantasy value, especially considering he's a candidate to miss two-three games per year with various injuries.Foles isn't the dual-threat type of guy that Chip Kelly typically wants running his offense, but he was decent when he took over for Vick last season.  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Fantasy backup. Reasoning: Mike Wallace - Signed with Miami. Heath Miller ACL injury. Big Ben always injured and playing on his last leg. If you draft him, draft another QB of equal or better talent.   
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Big Ben lost Mike Wallace. Antonio Brown and a plethora of slot WRs is not going to make up for that loss. Wallace gets down the field at record speed, and Big Ben has lost that mobility. A downgraded Roethlisberger is nothing more than a #20 Range QB.
