Season Projections
A quick glance at Roethlisberger's injury-shortened 2015 campaign stat sheet shows that he finished as the fantasy QB21. If you prorate Roethlsiberger's passing statistics to make up for four contests missed due to injuries (MCL sprain, a bruised knee, a sprained foot, a concussion and a separated shoulder), "Big Ben" would have come very close to matching his career-best numbers from 2014 and cracked the ranks of the top-10 fantasy quarterbacks. There's no question the 34-year-old Roethlisberger is playing the best football of his career in one of the NFL's most prolific passing offenses, which is anchored by the elite Antonio Brown. Even though big-play specialist Martavis Bryant will serve a one-year league suspension for failing six drug tests and Heath Miller hung up his cleats, fantasy owners shouldn't worry about Roethlisberger. He's more than good enough to elevate the pass-catching talent around him. The vastly improved Markus Wheaton will start in Bryant's spot, and size-speed specimen Ladarius Green is dripping with upside as Miller's replacement. Speedster Sammie Coates is also expected to contribute more in his second year. At last check, premiere three-down back Le'Veon Bell, who missed 10 games last year (suspension, knee injury) was expected to be ready for Week 1. Roethlisberger's upside as a No. 1 fantasy passer is fantastic as usual, but he comes with durability worries, too.

Passing: 4091 Yards, 26 TD, 13 INT.
Rushing: 47 Yards, 0 TD.
