Ben Roethlisberger completed 24-of-40 passes for 290 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Steelers' 23-20, Week 13 win over the Bengals on Monday night.

This was a knock-down, drag-out slobber-knocker that saw multiple penalties and serious injuries on both sides. It's something we've (sadly) become accustomed to seeing when these two division rivals meet. Asked after the game to describe it, Big Ben labeled it "AFC North football." Ben's night started out with an interception on the opening drive and just 109 scoreless passing yards at halftime. But the now 10-2 Steelers rallied from a two-score fourth-quarter deficit to escape with the win. Ben's two touchdowns were a 35-yard screen to Le'Veon Bell and a six-yard dart to Antonio Brown that tied the game in the final frame. The Steelers host the Ravens in Week 14, and Ben will be a borderline QB1/2 at home.
Dec 5 - 12:00 AM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 33-of-45 passes for 351 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the Steelers' 31-28, Week 12 win over the Packers.

Despite having two interceptions, Ben Roethlisberger had one of his best games this season. The second interception was unlucky as the pass was tipped by a defensive lineman, popping up into the air for a linebacker to make the interception. His first touchdown came on a shovel pass to TE Xavier Grimble. Ben proceeded to throw three more touchdowns, two of which were well-thrown fades to Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. Ben has now racked up ten touchdowns in his last three starts after scoring the same amount in his first eight games. He will be a QB1 at Cincinnati in Week 12.
Nov 27 - 12:00 AM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 30-of-45 passes for 299 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Steelers' 40-17, Week 11 win over the Titans.

The Steelers' offense was stuck in neutral for most of the first half but came alive after the break, with Roethlisberger completing 19-of-22 passes for 184 yards and three of his touchdowns. This, after Big Ben entered Week 11 with zero three-TD appearances. He was playing pitch and catch with Antonio Brown, who abused former Steelers DC Dick LeBeau's defense. Ben now has six TDs over past two starts after generating just 10 across his first eight. He has a plus Week 12 matchup in the Packers.
Nov 16 - 11:46 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 19-of-31 passes for 236 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Steelers' 20-17, Week 10 win over the Colts.

Coming off the Steelers' bye week, Big Ben was flat and unimpressive in what was way too close of a road victory over one of the NFL's least-talented teams. Roethlisberger missed a number of easy throws, and was probably lucky to escape with only one pick. His INT was an awful jump ball to Martavis Bryant. Roethlisberger did make some nice plays on what proved to be the game-winning drive, racking up 76 of his yards. After flirting with retirement last offseason, Ben just hasn't been the same this year. He's yet to have a three-touchdown game. He has another plus matchup for Week 11 in the Titans, but will be a low-end QB1.
Nov 12 - 4:39 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 17-of-31 passes for 317 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Week 8 against the Lions.

It looked like another lackluster game before Roethlisberger threw a 97-yard third quarter touchdown to JuJu Smith-Schuster. Roethlisberger did enough to get the Steelers a win with Detroit's red-zone offense struggling. He has just five touchdowns over the last month, but has looked better the past two weeks. Roethlisberger has taken a step back this year. He’s on pace for 4,124 yards and a 20:18 TD/INT ratio.
Oct 29 - 11:41 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 14-of-24 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Bengals.

While he didn't complete a high percentage of his passes, Roethlisberger showed up when needed to and made some big throws early in the game. Ben's first touchdown pass showed his chemistry with Antonio Brown, throwing before he was even looking for the ball. With the Steelers continuing to lean on an efficient running game in Le'Veon Bell, Roethlisberger doesn't have the same upside he used to.
Oct 22 - 8:07 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 17-of-25 passes for 252 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Steelers' Week 6 win over the Chiefs.

With Le'Veon Bell rolling, the Steelers did not ask Roethlisberger to do much except occasionally send passes toward Antonio Brown, who finished with an 8/155/1 line on ten targets. It was an understandable game plan after Ben threw five interceptions last week -- his pick today was Brown's fault, but the touchdown to Brown should have been intercepted, making it a wash -- and the Steelers could use the same approach moving forward. Still without a multi-touchdown game since Week 2, Roethlisberger will not be a top-12 quarterback against the Bengals next week.

Ben Roethlisberger believes he is still "one of the best" quarterbacks.

Following a tough loss in which he threw five interceptions, Roethlisberger openly questioned if he had "it anymore," but it sounds like the comments simply came out of frustration. Asked if his flirtation with retirement over the offseason has affected his play, Roethlisberger said, "If I didn't care, a game like Sunday wouldn't bother me." Regardless of the reason, Ben has struggled so far this year, and he will not be a must-start option in Kansas City this week.
Oct 10 - 11:43 AM

Following his five-interception performance Week 5, Ben Roethlisberger said, "Maybe I don't have it anymore."

It was reportedly just a "stream-of-consciousness moment," but it is a telling comment from a player who considered retirement this offseason. Roethlisberger also said he needs to improve "everywhere." Averaging just 6.5 yards per attempt, which would easily be a career low, and with just two touchdowns in the last three games, Roethlisberger is not a fantasy option right now.
Oct 8 - 5:07 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 33-of-55 passes for 312 yards and five interceptions in the Steelers' Week 5 loss to the Jaguars.

Ben started out strong with a great throw down the right sideline for a 49-yard gain to Antonio Brown, but it was all downhill from there as he imploded with five interceptions including four in the second half. His first was a throw slightly behind Vance McDonald which was undercut in the first half, his second was a bad decision where he did not appear to see Telvin Smith in coverage, the third was a high pass to Brown which was knocked out of his hands and into the waiting arms of Barry Church, the fourth came after JuJu Smith-Schuster fell down, and the fifth was almost a give-up throw late in the game. The second and third were returned for touchdowns, all but ending the game in the third quarter. Roethlisberger has now failed to throw for multiple scores three games in a row, and this was his first game with more than 300 yards since Week 10 of last year. It took 55 attempts and a lot of garbage time to make it happen. He will not be a top-12 option next week in Kansas City.
Oct 8 - 4:09 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 18-of-30 passes for 216 yards with one touchdown and one interception while losing a yard on one carry Sunday in the Steelers’ Week 4 win over the Ravens.

He was sacked once for a loss of eight yards. This wasn't vintage Roethlisberger, but at least he had a rapport going with Martavis Bryant and impressive rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster. He was less successful throwing to Antonio Brown, who had an uncharacteristically quiet showing. Ben came out hot, completing all four passes for 49 yards on Pittsburgh’s opening drive and later steered Pittsburgh to a 19-point lead by finding Smith-Schuster for an 11-yard score late in the first half. Roethlisberger’s interception wasn’t his fault as Brown bobbled it right into the hands of Eric Weddle on a play where it looked like Brown may have been down by contact. Big Ben gets the Jaguars at home in Week 5.
Oct 1 - 5:49 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 22-of-39 passes for 235 yards with one touchdown and rushed once for six yards Sunday in the Steelers’ Week 3 loss to the Bears.

Big Ben was sacked three times for a loss of 23 yards. Roethlisberger didn’t show much on Sunday, missing on almost all of his downfield tries and losing a crucial fumble on the Steelers’ second drive. The only time he had success was when he targeted Antonio Brown, who soaked up 10 catches for a team-high 110 yards. The 35-year-old has gotten off to a slow start, failing to top 300 yards passing in any of his three games this season. He’ll look to get back on track next week against the Ravens.
Sep 24 - 5:50 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 23-of-35 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Week 2 win over the Vikings.

The yards don't look great, but Big Ben threw a ton of deep balls in this one that resulted in a number of defensive penalties called against the Minnesota DBs. He was looking for Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant behind the defense often, but only found Bryant once for a 51-yard pickup. Ben's two scores were a 27-yard crossing pattern to Bryant and a short shovel pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster at the goal line. Brown was stuck on 3-28 receiving much of the afternoon. Big Ben will be a borderline QB1 next week on the road at the Bears.
Sep 17 - 4:33 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 24-of-36 passes for 263 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday’s win over the Browns.

Roethlisberger threw a pair of red zone scores to tight end Jesse James, but struggled to get the ball to anyone other than Antonio Brown in this game. He was 11-of-11 passing for 182 yards when targeting Brown while 13-of-25 passing for just 81 yards when throwing the ball anywhere else. A notorious meandering fantasy performer on the road, Roethlisberger heads home to face a tough Minnesota defense in Week 2.
