It's highly unlikely we'll see a return to prior 2019 form for Ben Roethlisberger, but he remains the starter in Pittsburgh for 2021. Even without JuJu Smith-Schuster if he decides to sign elsewhere, the 39-year old QB does have plenty of surrounding offensive weapons and should be considered a QB2 heading into this season.
PIT QB Ben Roethlisberger - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 vs Colts
Will the real Pittsburgh Steelers please stand up? Big Ben and the Steelers offense has been rocked since losing to Washington. Ben hasn't cracked 200 passing yards since and has now thrown interceptions in five straight games, accounting for six of his 10 interceptions this season. All of a sudden, Roethlisberger is a risk for the finals, as we have him ranked 24th among quarterbacks this week. However, the Colts have allowed 300-yard passers in each of the last three weeks to DeShaun Watson and Derek Carr.
