Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) suffered a right elbow injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Roethlisberger will be able to return. Mason Rudolph will take over the starting job if Roethlisberger misses any time but likely can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has played better at home over the last several seasons and will look for a bounce back performance this week. He can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 12.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger had a quiet Week 1 outing and will look to improve on his stats this week. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback since he has played better at home over the last few seasons.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 11.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 27-of-47 for 276 yards and an interception in Week 1 versus the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger wasn't poor in this one - he was done in by a number of drops from his receivers - but he was not as sharp as he was for most of 2018. In general, most of the offense looked like it could have used a few more preseason reps. The Patriots did a good job of taking away JuJu Smith-Schuster early and not enough of his teammates made plays to force New England's defense to adapt. Roethlisberger figures to be a high-end QB2 play next week at home against the Seattle Seahawks.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said Thursday, Aug. 22, that he's 'pretty sure' he'll play Sunday, Aug. 25, in the team's preseason game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Big Ben is coming off a huge 2018 season but has since lost longtime top target Antonio Brown. Value him as a high-end QB2.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will rest and not play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: It's rather standard operating procedure for veterans to rest during dress rehearsal games rather than risk injury in even a series or two. Joshua Dobbs will get the start, followed by Mason Rudolph. At this point Big Ben remains a low-end QB1 or top-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said Tuesday, May 21, he plans to be around more at OTAs this year in part to all the team's new faces.
Huddle Up: Remember the formidable offensive "B's" the Steelers featured only a few years ago? Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and Martvis Bryant are now gone, leaving Big Ben with a new cast. He remains, though, a borderline QB1/high-end QB2.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is in the final stages of a contract extension that will make him one of the highest-paid players annually. Terms weren't disclosed, but it could be announced as early as Wednesday, April 24.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has lost two key weapons in Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, and Big Ben wasn't an elite option in fantasy with them. He'll be a midrange QB1 in drafts.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's contract talks are 'still ongoing,' according to general manager Kevin Colbert. 'This is probably his last contract as an NFL player, so it's significant,' Colbert said.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger is coming off of one of his most productive seasons as a passer, and even with the loss of Antonio Brown, he is still a solid bet for low-end QB1 production in 2019.
