Big Ben's arm gets clean bill of health

Ben Roethlisberger says his powerful throwing arm feels great, and the Pittsburgh Steelers’ veteran quarterback has a doctor’s note to prove it.

An MRI before training camp showed Roethlisberger’s right shoulder is fully healed after doctors decided to rely on rest and rehab instead of a procedure to tighten the AC joint that was sprained in a January playoff win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: 

Roethlisberger also suffered torn ligaments in the shoulder on a hit by Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. But he made an improbable return to drive the Steelers to a game-winning field goal (with help from a couple Cincinnati penalties) and played the next week in a loss to the Denver Broncos. Big Ben is seventh on our QB list but his ADP is a round or two earlier than some others around him like Carson Palmer and Eli Manning.
