2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Roethlisberger put together another workmanlike season in 2011, throwing for the 2nd most yards in his career (4,077) with 21 touchdowns. While those numbers are reasonably impressive, they were only good enough to rank as the 13th best fantasy quarterback and 14th on a FPts/G basis. He failed to put up starter quality fantasy points partly due to the decline in his rushing production, as he ran for just 70 yards and no touchdowns after averaging 125 yards and two touchdowns over the first seven years of his career. A late season high ankle sprain didn’t help matters, further proof that his refusal to throw the ball away increases his risk of injury. In 2012, Big Ben gets a new offensive coordinator in Todd Haley with Bruce Arians having been shown the door. While Haley’s Kansas City tenure was marked by huge production in the running game, he relied heavily on the pass as the Cardinals offensive coordinator so concern that the Steelers will pound the ball on the ground is overblown, especially considering that largely unproven Isaac Redman will assume the starting role while Rashard Mendenhall recovers from a torn ACL. With a pair of quality starting wide receivers in Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown and the talented yet injury-prone Emmanuel Sanders coming off the bench, the Steelers may actually throw the ball more this season. Consider Roethlisberger a low-end fantasy starter but one who could surprise on the upside, provided the offensive line replenishments work out. He could be a bargain on draft day.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury No practice for injured Steelers' offensive stars     -- Thu Jan 14 6:40 pm --

Roethisberger, Brown and Williams appear questionable at best
QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR Antonio Brown were not full participants in practice for the second day in a row, but that could change tomorrow. The plan for Roethlisberger (shoulder separation) all along was to not participate fully in practice until Friday, the last full practice before Sunday’s divisional playoff game in Denver. Brown, though, has not been cleared to practice after sustaining a concussion in the wild-card playoff victory in Cincinnati. Meantime, RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) still has not practiced since being injured in the season finale against Cleveland and is not expected to play in Denver. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FF Today's Take: In terms of likelihood to play this week, it appears the order at the moment is Roethlisberger, Brown and then Williams. The Steelers are hopeful Brown can be cleared from the concussion protocol program and play even if he doesn’t practice. Friday figures to be a big day in determining his status. Making matters worse for fantasy purposes, Pittsburgh plays in the last of the four playoff games this weekend. The Denver defense is shaping up to be a great play.
Injury Steelers prepping Landry Jones     -- Wed Jan 13 6:20 pm --

team still hoping Roethlisberger can play
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Landry Jones wouldn't mind a shot at redemption. Ben Roethlisberger with his mess of a right shoulder hopes it doesn't come to that. Jones took the majority of the snaps with the starters for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wednesday, prepping for Sunday's playoff visit to Denver just in case Roethlisberger can't find a way to make it work with the sprained shoulder on his throwing arm. (USA Today)

FF Today's Take: Ben Roethlisberger won't be 100 percent when the Steelers take the field against the Broncos. The question is whether he will be healthy enough to start and finish the game. Landry Jones should continue to receive the bulk of the work in practice but hasn't thrown a touchdown since week seven. The potential absence of star receiver Antonio Brown only adds to the cloudy fantasy forecast for Pittsburgh's quarterback tandem.
Injury Antonio Brown "not looking good" vs. Broncos     -- Mon Jan 11 10:20 pm --

Earlier report had WR trending in the right direction
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will likely miss Sunday’s divisional round game against the Denver Broncos due to a concussion, reports ESPN’s Bob Holtzman. Brown sustained the head injury on a hit by Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict in Pittsburgh's 18-16 win in Saturday's AFC wild-card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Burfict was flagged, helping set up a game-winning field goal by Steelers PK Chris Boswell. (Sports Illustrated)

FF Today's Take: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggested Brown "should be able to play" earlier in the day, but this report along with ESPN's Bob Holtzman and NFL Media's Ian Rapoport suggests the receiver is facing long odds of playing in the Divisional Round. With Ben Roethlisberger likely at far less than 100 percent, Denver's defense/special teams is shaping up to be a good play in DFS and for owners in playoff fantasy leagues.
Injury Positive signs for Big Ben, Antonio Brown     -- Mon Jan 11 7:00 am --

Steelers' studs might be available for Divisional game
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown — have a chance to be ready Sunday for a divisional-round playoff game at Denver. Roethlisberger’s injured right shoulder is “sore,” but he said there apparently is no ligament damage and is “day to day” for the top-seeded Broncos. Also, All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown, who was put in concussion protocol after a hit to the helmet by Burfict following an incomplete pass, is said to be fine and should be able to play against the Broncos. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FF Today's Take: Roethlisberger's shoulder injury appears to be the biggest concern heading into a divisional matchup with the Broncos. It's likely he'll be limited in practice this week or perhaps held out entirely. Antonio Brown suffered an apparent concussion, but such early week optimism suggests he might not have suffered a concussion at all.
Injury Big Ben expected to play Sunday     -- Fri Dec 4 5:00 pm --

QB practiced all week
The Steelers saw two of their players leave last Sunday’s game with concussions, but both quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and linebacker Ryan Shazier are expected to play against the Colts on Sunday night. Roethlisberger was a full participant in practice all week and Shazier moved to that level in Thursday’s session, leading the Steelers to list them both as probable for Week 13. Both players have missed games due to other injuries this season, but their quick progress through the concussion protocol will have them helping the playoff push in Pittsburgh. (NBC Sports)

FF Today's Take: Roethlisberger is a must-start this weekend against the Colts. The banged up veteran rattled off 456 passing yards last week, and has passed for at least 330 yards in five of the seven games he's played in this year.
Injury Big Ben put through concussion protocol     -- Sun Nov 29 9:15 pm --

Should be OK for Week 13
Ben Roethlisberger left the game late Sunday and was put in the NFL’s concussion protocol as backup Landry Jones finished up the final series. Roethlisberger reported that he had symptoms of a possible concussion, and that is when they pulled him from the game and put him in the protocol mandated by the NFL. It will mean he must pass several tests this week before he can play Sunday against Indianapolis at Heinz Field. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FF Today's Take: Roethlisberger missed the last couple minutes of the Seattle loss but did extensive damage during the game with 456 passing yards and 1 TD. The consensus thinking is that he will be able to pass the concussion tests this week and should be able to play in Week 13.
Injury Steelers' QB Sunday remains unclear     -- Fri Nov 13 4:30 pm --

Roethlisberger listed as questionable
Who is playing quarterback this Sunday in this Steelers-Browns matchup? No, seriously? While the Browns intend on locking down that information for strategic reasons, the Steelers are still dealing with an injury situation. Ben Roethlisberger shed a walking boot on his sprained left foot earlier this week, but according to the team's public relations staff, Roethlisberger is questionable. He was limited during Friday's practice. Pittsburgh's insistence on not declaring Roethlisberger out could have been the kickstarter for this weekend of intrigue, although Roethlisberger has made a career of healing fast when the outlook is grim. The good news is that backup Landry Jones can play well enough to win. On the season he's hit on almost 60 percent of his passes and has a 3-2 TD to INT ratio. Against an opportunistic, but porous Browns defense this weekend, he could fare quite well. Of course, at 5-4 Pittsburgh would prefer the sure thing. Whether or not they'll get lucky remains to be seen. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: This one is likely to be a gametime decision. With the Steelers set to kick off early, this will allow Roethlisberger owners to insert him into their lineups if he gets the green light.
