With Fitzpatrick gone, Winston is no longer at risk of surrendering games to the backup. He may not be great in real life, but from a fantasy standpoint, this gunslinger piles up the points. In fact, he and Ryan Fitzpatrick last year combined for the 2nd most fantasy points in football. With one of the top receiving cores in football, Winston could potentially eclipse 4,800 yards with the touchdowns to put him in the top 3.Six hundred and seventy five. That's how many pass attempts Big Ben threw in 2018. That number is going to drop, perhaps even by 100 so don't be expecting another 5,000 yards or another QB3 fantasy performance on the season. With that said, when Big Ben has been on the field, he is a consistent top 15 option so we ought to plan for much of the same even despite the decrease in volume and the loss of Antonio Brown.
Mike Tagliere

Have you ever wondered which player was going to go off in a particular offense? Think about teams like the Patriots or Bears, who seemingly always had someone different posting big fantasy days. Moving to a food reference: instead of figuring what pancake it will be, take the syrup that'll go over all of them. Many have labeled Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard as breakout candidates, and while I agree with them, Mike Evans is still there, too. Instead of trying to figure out which player is going to go off every week, take the guy who's distributing the ball to them. The addition of Bruce Arians is fantastic, as is the horrible defense that'll be out there, because you'll watch the pass attempts (and fantasy points) rack up.Losing Antonio Brown won't do Roethlisberger any favors and it's not as if he was a lock to finish top-10 before then. In fact, Roethlisberger has finished inside the top 10 quarterbacks just four times in his 15-year career. You thought he had ups and downs before? He's not worth the headache and we're surprised many experts are willing to invest a top-12 quarterback selection on him.

Winston has a new coach and Bruce Arians maybe able to help him turn his career around, but WInston's int percentage (3.7) and sack percentage (6.7) must both improve if he is ever going to be a consistent quarterback at the NFL level or in fantasy football.Big Ben had 5,129 yards passing, 34 passing touchdowns and he was the 3rd ranked fantasy quarterback. The loss of WR Antonio Brown will hurt his fantasy value, but Big Ben should still be a high-end QB2 with QB1 upside in favorable matchups.
