QB - PIT
Week 3 Outlook
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 23-of-36 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-21 win over Houston in Week 3.
Roethlisberger performed well despite losing Diontae Johnson to a concussion in the first half. The veteran signal-caller has seven touchdowns and one interception through three games. He will be a low-end QB1 in Week 4 against the Titans in Tennessee.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 29-of-41 passes for 311 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in a 26-21 win over the Broncos in Week 2.
Roethlisberger threw a beautiful deep bomb to Chase Claypool down the left sideline that the rookie took for an 84-yard touchdown. He later connected on a 28-yard score with Diontae Johnson. Roethlisberger is creeping into the season-long QB1 conversation after two weeks. He will be a low-end QB1 for his Week 3 matchup against Houston.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 21-of-32 passes for 229 yards and three touchdowns in a 26-16 win over the Giants in Week 1.
Roethlisberger found JuJu Smith-Schuster for two scores and James Washington for the third. The veteran quarterback looked good in the win, giving hope that his elbow injury from 2019 is a thing of the past. He will be a high-end QB2 in Week 2 against the Broncos.
The Steelers are not concerned with Ben Roethlisberger‘s elbow. He’s “made every throw possible,” per Mark Kaboly of the Athletic.
Roethlisberger reportedly was short-arming some his throws, and recently said he was playing with nagging pain in his throwing arm for 13 years. He has made every throw possible in camp and his elbow is not a concern. “He’s made every throw possible over the three-week camp and was impressive doing it,” Kaboly added. “His surgically repaired elbow isn’t a concern. He only sat for one practice and part of another. He was engaged and energetic and spent a lot of time being a coach on the field to his young receivers.“ Big Ben felt great and has had no pain in his elbow since surgery. The Steelers are poised to bounce back offensively after a disappointing 2019 campaign. Roethlisberger is a rock solid fantasy QB2 and currently 16th among all quarterbacks in the latest expert consensus rankings.
Ben Roethlisberger says his elbow feels "really good" after throwing three days in a row last week.
"I definitely need to give it some time to rest that one day off every so often out of general fatigue and soreness. It's amazing how fast it bounces back and feels great the next day," the quarterback elaborated. Reports on his surgically repaired elbow continue to be positive. If he's truly healthy this season then every Pittsburgh skill-position player has a chance to smash their current ADPs.
