Ben Roethlisberger throws one TD in Week 1

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 18-of-32 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown in a 23-16 win over the Bills in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense got off to a slow start but he played mistake-free football and did enough to lead his team to the comeback win. His fourth-quarter touchdown was a five-yard pass to Diontae Johnson. Roethlisberger will be a low-end QB2 for Week 2's home matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Ben Roethlisberger throws two TDs in preseason debut

Ben Roethlisberger completed 8-of-10 passes for 137 yards and two scores in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.

Fantasy Impact

Roethlisberger was able to push the ball down the field in this once, which is a great sign for this offense. It's no secret that Pittsburgh's offense became one dimensional last season. The combination of a newfound commitment to the running game, combined with better health from Big Ben, should only lead to good things for the Steelers.

Ben Roethlisberger reportedly focusing on strict diet and weight loss

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been very focused on weight loss ever since the 2020 NFL season concluded. ESPN's Ryan Burr reports that the signal-caller's "biggest concern is weight loss" and that "he has been so driven since [the] season ended."

Fantasy Impact

Burr added that Roethlisberger's "diet is stricter than Brady." The quarterback's camp also says that he is in the best shape of his life and “hears everything.” By losing weight, Roethlisberger can remove some of the pressure that is on his joints, which could in turn lessen the potential for knee injuries like the ones that impacted him in 2020.

Ben Roethlisberger has been signed to a new contract with the Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced that Ben Roethlisberger has been signed to a new contract that will keep him in Pittsburgh through 2021.

Fantasy Impact

The details of the contract have yet to be released, but we will be sure to update you as more information becomes available. Having just turned 39 years old a couple of days ago, Roethlisberger is reaching the twilight of his career. The two-time Super Bowl champ will hope to make another run with the Steelers' possessing an elite defense and some of the best pass-catchers in the game.

Ben Roethlisberger set to return to the Steelers for 2021 season

Steelers star QB Ben Roethlisberger will be returning as the team's starter for the upcoming 2021 season.

Fantasy Impact

The NFL's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that she has been in contact with Roethlisberger's agent Ryan Tollner. He states that "They (Steelers) want Ben back and will contact me soon to address his cap situation." This will likely include a restructure of the veteran QB's contract to be more cap-friendly, thus freeing up additional resources for Pittsburg to make a run at the Super Bowl. The Steelers were red hot to start the 2020 season, going 11-0 before losing 5 of their last 6, including a bitter loss to the Cleveland Browns in the NFL Wild Card Round. Roethlisberger had a respectable 2020, recording 3,803 passing yards, 33 touchdowns, and ten interceptions. Coming off of "Tommy John" surgery in 2019, he struggled with his deep ball, finishing with 6.3 yards-per-attempt, the lowest in his career. The Steelers hope another year removed from the elbow injury, and they will see the veteran gunslinger return to form and help the team make a deep playoff run.
