While Big Ben threw 33 touchdowns in 2020, it didn't exactly lead to top-tier fantasy relevance. Big Ben finished as the overall QB14 and he fell out of the streaming conversation towards the end of the year as the offense took a major step backwards. With Harris now in town, it's likely that we see the Steelers attempt to get back to a more balanced attack on offense, which will limit Big Ben's overall pass attempts. In order for Ben to be consistently in the streaming conversation, he's going to have to get back to slinging the ball downfield for a high YPA and have a solid TD rate. With so many other options at QB now that bring a safe floor with their rushing ability, Big Ben's purely just an option to roll out in plus matchups at this point of his career.

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.
