Steeler QB Ben Roethlisberger’s agent, Ryan Tollner, told ESPN this week that his client has lost 15 pounds while on a “high-cardio” regimen with team trainers.
Roethlisberger -- who is listed at 6-foot-5, 240 pounds but probably has weighed above that at times -- missed four games last season with a variety of injuries and couldn’t keep himself in top condition.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Roethlisberger has been a yardage hog in the past two seasons, truly meshing with what offensive coordinator Todd Haley wants to do with the football -- work the short game and set up shots downfield. Roethlisberger lost a big downfield target with Martavis Bryant's suspension for the year, but he has other weapons. He had eight 300-plus yard games in 12 outings last season and was sacked just 20 times. The offensive line is solid. The supporting cast is excellent. Roethlisberger's interceptions were up a tick last season with 16, but that's been a point of emphasis this offseason. At 34, he's still on the back edge of his prime and should be poised for another big season, provided he stays healthy. And with Le'Veon Bell back this season, Roethlisberger has his safety valve back. The schedule isn't especially daunting and because the defense is somewhat shaky, the Steelers have to keep the pedal to the metal. He should easily be a top-10 fantasy quarterback, perhaps even a top-5, in 2016.
