Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) said his recovery is going fine and that he believes he would have been able to participate in some offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger miss most of the 2019 season because of elbow surgery but appears to be on track for training camp and the 2020 season. He has played well over the last few seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) has 'no doubts' he'll be able to make a full return in 2020 and come back and play well, he said Thursday, March 19. 'I have complete confidence in that. I'm throwing without pain for the first time in years,' Roethlisberger said. 'Some games, I would have a little pain. Some games, I would have a lot of pain.'
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger played just the first two games of the 2019 season with no touchdowns and one interception. He led the league in passing attempts, completions and yards in 2018, and his return would boost the fantasy appeal of everyone else within the Steelers offense. He's a low-tier QB1.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) said he has been cleared to start throwing a football but is still about two and a half to three months away from receiving full clearance.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger probably will not do much during offseason workouts but appears to have a good chance to be ready for training camp. He has posted very good numbers over the last several seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is healthy.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) was throwing a football indoors in a video shared by the team Saturday, Feb. 22.
Huddle Up: It was previously reported Roethlisberger is on track to return in time for Week 1, and this is certainly a positive development. He's unlikely to take much contact this offseason or in the preseason, as he's eased back into action for the regular season. He'll be a mid-tier QB1 if there are no setbacks.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) should be ready for the start of the 2020 regular season, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger is scheduled to have his surgically repaired elbow examined later this month and also hopes to participate in some offseason workouts. He played well in 2018 and can still post solid numbers in the passing game. Roethlisberger can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season if he is healthy.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) has a check-up on his injured elbow scheduled for Friday, Feb. 21, in Los Angeles, and Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert says he is optimistic. 'All signs are good,' Colbert said Thursday, Feb. 13. 'We're hopeful he can make a complete recovery.'
Huddle Up: Don't forget that Big Ben was fantasy's second-ranked quarterback in 2018, but he will turn 38 next month and will be coming off a season on the sideline. It all adds up to an uphill battle for Roethlisberger to automatically return to QB1 status.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) is scheduled to meet with his doctors later this month to have his surgically repaired elbow examined. He hopes to be cleared to start throwing tennis balls and other lighter objects after the meeting. Roethlisberger believes he will be able to participate in the May workouts.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation during the offseason to see if Roethlisberger suffers any setbacks. He has played well over the last several seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is healthy.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) reportedly has a medical checkup scheduled in February that will be 'significant in terms of mapping out what is next,' according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Huddle Up: It's unlikely Roethlisberger will do much throwing before training camp regardless of how his elbow checks out, but the Steelers' ability to return to the playoffs in 2020 hinge greatly on 37-year-old's ability to return to form. Assuming he is 100 percent by August, fantasy owners should view him as a serviceable QB2 option.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger took to Twitter to announce that he has been working hard and is more determined than ever to come back stronger next year.
Huddle Up: Big Ben sounds like he's definitely coming back in 2020 after some recent reports that he was uncertain about his future. He'll be in the QB2 mix in drafts next year.

Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Roethlisberger suffers any setbacks during the offseason. He has the chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback next season if he completely recovers from the surgery.
