The Super Bowl hangover could be a thing, but Goff has a great system and plenty of weapons. He'll again be a top 15 threat.Big Ben is still fantastic and his supporting cast - contrary to popular belief - is loaded. He'll be right around the top-5, if not better.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Goff took a major step forward last year, as his familiarity with Sean McVay's system, elite playmakers, and a strong offensive line led to monster production early on. He fell off a bit after Cooper Kupp went down, and that has depressed his draft price a bit. Yes, there are questions at offensive line and with Todd Gurley dealing with an "arthritic condition," it's reasonable to expect a bit of a decline from Goff's production from last year when Kupp was on the field. But even with that regression, Goff should still finish as a solid QB1, and you can get him later than he should be going.Roethlisberger threw the ball 675 times last year for 5,129 yards and 34 touchdowns, all easily career highs. But what happens when you take away Antonio Brown, with whom Roethlisberger had an incredible connection and without whom, Roethlisberger's efficiency dropped like a rock? The answer is that unless you buy James Washington or Donte Moncrief as the second coming, you drop him in your rankings precipitously. Roethlisberger still has plenty of skills and will almost certainly continue to exploit the right matchup, particularly at home. But without Brown, fantasy owners shouldn't come close to valuing him as a QB1. particularly since he is now 37 years old.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Goff needs to learn to read defenses better, otherwise the Patriots gave a blueprint to the league on how to frustrate head coach Sean McVay's ability to read the defense for Goff before the snap. Goff has a lot of weapons and he should still be a high-end QB2 in 2019 with QB1 upside.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. It speaks to the depth of the quarterback position that he is not ranked in the Top-10.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Big Ben threw for over 5000 yards last season on a ridiculous 675 attempts, both numbers can obviously not be expected again this year, but Big Ben is a beast of a QB and I do expect the Steelers will need to pass a lot this season again. Yes, AB is gone, but Juju is an absolute beast, Vance will be more involved and one of Washington or Moncrief should be able to make some plays on the outside. Regressions is being overly accounted for, he is still a rock solid QB1 and the reason why you don't tale a QB early.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There's some who believe Goff will struggle with Todd Gurley moving into more of a timeshare role, but that's unlikely to be the case. Those who say that will point to last year's finish, but Goff struggled prior to Gurley leaving the lineup, as he was in some sort of funk after their bye week (likely due to Cooper Kupp missing). Still, under Sean McVay, Goff has been a top-12 type performer in 14-of-31 games (45.2 percent), which may not sound like much, but it would rank 11th among quarterbacks the last two years. He's a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 who might see an increase in pass attempts this yearLosing 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

 going to be hurt a bit by AB gone. regress from career high in pass attempts, pass TDs, rush TDs (3). don't want to overweight last year's finish. only played 16 games 4 of 15 seasons
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Goff has been climbing up my draft board as the summer has moved on. I had him ranked below ADP by a good amount because of how little he adds in the rushing game, but this team just has so much TD upside that his passing numbers will make up for it. After that terrible rookie season he's finished as the QB 12 and 7 with McVay as his head coach. Goff has Cook/Woods/Kupp/Gurley/Henderson/Everett surrounding him, which is one of the more dangerous set of weapons in the league. Goff should finish around 4,600-4,800 passing yards, and be in the low 30's for TD's. That sort of stat line will make him a QB 1 for the third consecutive season.I was all in on Big Ben last season. I predicted he would lead the league in passing for the first time in his career, and I beat the drum hard for him as an under valued QB. This season though, I'll be passing. I just can't justify drafting him as the 13th QB in the 9th round. There are a million QB options this season, so spending a 9th round pick on a QB that doesn't run the ball, and just lost their top WR is a losing strategy. He could absolutely be amongst the league leaders in passing again. But the more likely scenario is that they run the ball more, he loses some efficiency, and finishes as more of a streaming option than a full time fantasy starter. He's going to win someone a million dollars one week. But he's also going to have some dumpster fire performances. It's a no for me this season.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Goff had a spectacular regular season but over the final eight weeks including the playoffs, he totaled just 7 touchdowns and 9 interceptions with 236 yards per game (or just 3,700 over a full season). That is a red flag for sure, but it doesn't remove the fact that he could very well bounce back and become a top 12 fantasy QB once again.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.
