Ben Roethlisberger needs elbow surgery, done for season

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is set to undergo elbow surgery this week that will keep him sidelined for the remainder of 2019.

Fantasy Impact

Roethlisberger had an MRI today that revealed the extent of the injury. There were reports that he was dealing with an elbow issue last week, though he never once appeared on the injury report. Mason Rudolph is set to take over for Pittsburgh. This is obviously a downgrade for all Steelers skill players, primarily top wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Ben Roethlisberger could require elbow surgery

A decision is expected today regarding whether or not Ben Roethlisberger will require surgery on his injured elbow. Roethlisberger suffered the injury during Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

The Steelers' offense was already off to a slow start, and that certainly wasn't helped by the injury to Roethlisberger. Mason Rudolph came in to relieve Big Ben and was decent, but it will still be a drop off if Roethlisberger is required to miss extensive time which would impact the fantasy value of surrounding players such as JuJu Smith-Schuster. Nothing has been determined, but it sounds like a clearer timeframe should be determined Monday.

Ben Roethlisberger passes for 271 yards in loss

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 27-of-47 passes for 271 yards and one interception in a 33-3 loss to the Patriots in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

It was a disappointing season debut as the Patriots dominated the Steelers throughout the evening. Roethlisberger and company will look to regroup in Week 2 against the Seahawks. He will be more of a QB2 for that one.

Ben Roethlisberger tosses TD in preseason action

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger made his preseason debut in an 18-6 win over the Titans on Sunday. Roethlisberger completed 8-of-13 passes for 63 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

That marks Big Ben's only playing time of the preseason as he will not play in the final game next week. He found JuJu Smith-Schuster for a 17-yard touchdown in the first quarter. The veteran quarterback heads into the 2019 season without Antonio Brown and some new offensive pieces around him but he can still be treated as a high-end QB2 in fantasy.
