Ben Roethlisberger throwing with nice velocity but short-arming some passes

Mark Kaboly of The Athletic writes that while Ben Roethlisberger is throwing with some "nice velocity", he is also "short-arming" some throws. (The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact:

"I would say that a good bit of his throw was a motion with which he did not follow through completely," Kaboly observed. "It was sort of like a whip action. It reminded me a bit of Philip Rivers’ delivery." This isn't what fantasy players wanted to hear after all the glowing reports of Big Ben's elbow rehab throughout the offseason. Still, this isn't a reason to entirely fade Pittsburgh skill players either. It would be nice if we could witness Roethlisberger in action with some preseason games, but that isn't a luxury we have this year.
