Ben Roethlisberger signs two-year extension

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger have agreed to a two-year contract extension to keep him with the team through 2021.

Fantasy Impact

This is a bit different than the last two offseasons where we heard rumors about Roethlisberger hanging up the cleats and possibly retiring. After drafting Mason Rudolph last year, it was unlikely the Steelers were going to take another quarterback in this draft regardless. If anything, this is great news for JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington, and Vance McDonald, as they'll have a few more dynasty years with Roethlisberger.

Ben Roethlisberger throws one TD in season ender

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 31-of-45 passes for 287 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in his team's 16-13 win over the Bengals in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Roethlisberger and the Steelers struggled against a weak Cincinnati defense but they managed to do just enough to pull out the win. Roethlisberger finishes the season with 5,129 yards, 34 touchdowns, and 16 interceptions in 16 games. He will be a QB1 in fantasy again in 2019, provided he doesn't retire in the offseason.

Ben Roethlisberger throws three scores in loss

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 33 of 50 passes for 380 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-28 loss to the Saints in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Roethlisberger appeared to be on his way to at least a game-tying drive but JuJu Smith-Schuster lost a fumble with 41 seconds left. Roethlisberger will be a locked-in QB1 against a leaky Bengals secondary in Week 17.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 22 of 34 passes for 235 yards in a 17-10 win over the Patriots in Week 15. He threw two touchdowns and two interceptions in the game.

Fantasy Impact

It wasn't a banner day for the Steelers offense but they pulled off a win over a tough Patriots team. Roethlisberger's first score went to Vance McDonald and he later found Antonio Brown for a touchdown. Roethlisberger will be a QB1 in Week 16 against the Saints.

Ben Roethlisberger practices fully Thursday

Ben Roethlisberger was able to practice fully Thursday. He's recovering from a rib injury.

Fantasy Impact

This is a great sign for owners considering Ben as well as the team's other offensive playmakers. Given his return to the Raiders' game following the rib injury, Roethlisberger was expected to suit up in a pivotal matchup against the Patriots on Sunday, but this further cements his status. Big Ben will be a solid QB1 that can be played in all formats against New England at home.
