When I initially did my rankings, Roethlisberger was ranked as my No. 12 quarterback, but something big has happened since that time. Martavis Bryant was reinstated. He's played 19 career games with Bryant, averaging 337 yards and 2.11 touchdowns in those games. You have to deal with his road struggles, but his home games will win you weeks.

Ben Roethlisberger 'seriously' considered retiring this offseason

During an episode of Pro Football Talk Live Tuesday, former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Willie Colon said quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was "seriously considering retiring before ultimately deciding to play" in 2017. “I got to sit down and talk to him and one thing he told me is he did take it seriously,” Colon said via PFT Live. “He’s dealt with a lot of injuries.”

Fantasy Impact

It appears that Roethlisberger's retirement talk this offseason was more serious than what was originally conceived. However, because the 35-year-old signal caller ultimately decided to return for the 2017 season, all is well in Pittsburgh, but for how long? Roethlisberger, who has battled injuries throughout his career and takes a beating on the field due to his style of play, isn't getting any younger. Perhaps his time in the NFL is coming to an end sooner rather than later. It could be time for the Steelers to begin planning for a life without Roethlisberger. Granted, they selected Josh Dobbs in the fourth round of April's draft, but is he the future? The answer to that question will not come in the preseason. It will be answered in the regular season if Roethlisberger, who has missed six games since 2015, is sidelined at any point during the campaign, and Dobbs is given the shot to play over Landry Jones.
