Draft note
by John Paulsen
Roethlisberger was the No. 14 quarterback last season, but he missed a game, so he had the No. 13 per game average. So why is he the 27th quarterback off the board at Underdog? Well, there are a couple of concerns. At 39 years old, he’s in the twilight of his career, and he’s coming off of a season where he posted a career-low 6.3 yards per attempt. But some of that was by design. Since he was coming off of shoulder surgery, the Steelers went with a short passing game in 2020, but they reportedly expect his arm to be stronger this season. Given his weapons (Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, JuJu Smith-Schuster, among others), there is a chance for a QB1-type season, but the arrival of Najee Harris indicates that the Steelers are going to “establish the run” more in 2021, so Roethlisberger’s pass attempts may be down. Since he offers no rushing floor and seems to be at a high risk of injury, he’s not a coveted asset at a deep position.

PIT QB Ben Roethlisberger - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs Raiders

The Steelers started quietly as they couldn't get much of anything going in the first half. but built momentum in the second half, including that blocked punt for a touchdown. Roethlisberger ended up with an okay performance for fantasy purposes, with 188 yards and a touchdown. This week, he faces the Raiders, who are coming off an exciting overtime win over the Ravens on Monday night. Big Ben has averaged almost 300 yards passing with five touchdowns and three interceptions in his last three games against the Raiders, though this will be their first meeting since 2018. Roethlisberger is worth a look as a stream option or QB2.
