Six hundred and seventy five. That's how many pass attempts Big Ben threw in 2018. That number is going to drop, perhaps even by 100 so don't be expecting another 5,000 yards or another QB3 fantasy performance on the season. With that said, when Big Ben has been on the field, he is a consistent top 15 option so we ought to plan for much of the same even despite the decrease in volume and the loss of Antonio Brown.

Losing Antonio Brown won't do Roethlisberger any favors and it's not as if he was a lock to finish top-10 before then. In fact, Roethlisberger has finished inside the top 10 quarterbacks just four times in his 15-year career. You thought he had ups and downs before? He's not worth the headache and we're surprised many experts are willing to invest a top-12 quarterback selection on him.

Big Ben had 5,129 yards passing, 34 passing touchdowns and he was the 3rd ranked fantasy quarterback. The loss of WR Antonio Brown will hurt his fantasy value, but Big Ben should still be a high-end QB2 with QB1 upside in favorable matchups.
