The Pittsburgh Steelers said they wanted to run the ball more often when they parted with offensive coordinator Bruce Arians this offseason, but QB Ben Roethlisberger hasn't noticed too much of a change under Todd Haley, the Pro Bowl quarterback told NFL Network's Rich Eisen.

"I get a little confused at times because so much has been made about us, quote-unquote, throwing the ball too much, or going back to Steeler football and running the ball more," Roethlisberger said on Rich Eisen's podcast, which will air Thursday on NFL Network at 1:30 p.m. ET.

"In these meetings I've had with Coach Haley, he's all about the no-huddle and using our wide-receiver weapons and throwing the ball and stuff like that," Roethlisberger said.

Fantasy Impact: 

When there's a change at offensive coordinator, there's typically a change of offensive philosophy. But if Roethlisberger senses that the offense will continue to be pass-first, then that's probably the case. He's currently going in the 9th round and appears to be a nice value for those owners who decide to load up on other positions for the first half of the draft.
