Could Big Ben get fewer than four games suspension?

Pittsburg Post-Gazette - [Full Article]

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell spoke to reporters this morning at Steelers training camp and appeared to leave the door open that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's suspension could be fewer than four games.

Roethlisberger had been suspended for a minimum of four games and a maximum of six games by Goodell after he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Georgia in the spring.

When asked if there was any chance Roethlisberger's suspension could be fewer than four games, Goodell responded: "I'll make that decision later this month, but that's the way it was designed. We'll evaluate all of that at the end of the month."

Fantasy Impact: 

Ben is rated 24th in QBs and has an ADP of the 12th round. This will likely sky rocket if he gets less than a four-game suspension. The Steelers were saying they wanted to run the ball more, but that changed in the offseason to run the ball "better." Big Ben under center certainly gives them a more balanced attack.
