 Dallas has been extraordinary on defense this year, but Luck has been even better. He has only slowed down once since Week 4 and it was versus Jacksonville so you can rely on him once again in the semifinals as a QB1 this week.
Tim McCullough
FantasyPros
Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - START - There was never much doubt about Roethlisberger's availability for Week 15 after suffering a ribs injury, but a DNP on Wednesday was a little nerve wracking. Luckily, he returned as a full participant on Thursday. Roethlisberger will be vulnerable to any big hits in Week 15, and extra padding around his chest could affect mobility. 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Big Ben missed part of last week's game with a rib injury, but he returned to a full practice on Thursday and should be good to go for this week's showdown with New England. There is a lot to like about Roethlisberger's set up this week: he's at home, facing a defense that allows the eighth-most fantasy points to QBs in what Vegas expects to be a high-scoring affair. Roethlisberger has performed like a top-tier fantasy QB all season long and can confidently be deployed as a high-end QB1 this week.Luck bounced back from a down week in Jacksonville in Week 13 to shred a good Texans defense for 399 yards and two scores in Week 14. It's a timely reminder that Luck is a matchup-proof QB1, as he'll face off with another tough defense this week. This one will be at Lucas Oil Stadium, where Luck is averaging over three touchdown passes per game this season. While Dallas is a formidable opponent, they did surrender three scores to Carson Wentz last week, and Luck is a good bet to have similar success. He's an above average QB1 despite the matchup.
Scott Engel
RotoExperts
Has averaged 356.8 YPG in his past five vs NEDallas 10th best vs opposing Fantasy QBs, Luck is mostly matchup proof
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
New England has allowed the 8th most points against fantasy quarterbacks, Big Ben should be a QB1 at home. Dallas is 9th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Luck has played well enough this year to warrant QB1 status in any matchup.
