Ben Roethlisberger Fantasy News

ESPN - [Full Article]

Pittsburgh TE Heath Miller is a No. 3 or 4 option for the offense but nothing more.

He might’ve been a 1,000-yard receiver as a 25-year-old in Haley’s offense. Miller’s scoring rate is concerning. After 27 touchdowns in his first five years, Miller has 16 in his last five, for an average of 3.2 per year. He surpassed three scores in one of those five seasons.

The Steelers placed a waiver claim for tight end Tim Wright, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. When coupled with reported interest in second-round tight end Maxx Williams during the draft, the Wright claim indicates the franchise is at least exploring tight end alternatives.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say Miller isn’t an elite tight end but he’s still very solid. He can put up 600 yards in this offense at age 32. And the truth is the Steelers still need him. He’s a safety valve for QB Ben Roethlisberger. In fact, we predict Miller for 588 yards and just under 3 TDs for 2015. However he's ranked 20th on our list and likely won't get a lot of draft attention in typical leagues. With Antonio Brown, LeVeon Bell and Martavis Bryant, that's a strong core of talent to monopolize the red zone touches.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger won't need knee surgery

ESPN - [Full Article]

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger opted out of the Pro Bowl as a precaution, but the decision is not related to a larger problem with his knee, his agent said in an email to ESPN.com Friday night.

"Ben was instructed by team doctors to avoid strenuous activity due to inflammation in his knee, thus he will not play in the Pro Bowl," agent Ryan Tollner said. "His knee will not require surgery and he looks forward to an otherwise healthy offseason to improve with his teammates."

Fantasy Impact:

Roethlisberger should be good to go for OTAs and minicamp.

Tomlin: QB Ben Roethlisberger may have surgery to 'clean up' his knee

HC Mike Tomlin said that QB Ben Roethlisberger may have offseason surgery to clean up his knee.

Fantasy Impact:

This is not ominous news given the timeframe. Roethlisberger should be fine for minicamp/OTAs if he's simply having his knee "cleaned up."

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 18. No worries here. Big Ben should be a quality start against a shaky secondary.

Steelers RB LeVeon Bell (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 18. With Bell out, Josh Harris should see the most touches in the Pittsburgh backfield. If he’s not able to run the ball effectively (which seems likely given Baltimore’s stout run defense), look for Ben Roethlisberger to air it out against a shaky secondary. Harris should be a decent cheap option in daily formats due to workload alone.
