Season Projections
It's hard to know for sure whether Roethlisberger was serious about his brief preseason retirement talk, but there are definitely more games behind the 35-year-old Steelers triggerman than ahead of him. Roethlisberger deserves a big salute for amassing some darn good numbers in 14 games played last season while operating with an undermanned receiver corps that had little to offer behind Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell. Roethlisberger clocked out of 2016 ranked 18th among fantasy passers. If he had suited up for all 16 contests, Roethlisberger projected to finish as the sixth-rated fantasy quarterback. He made it through the 2013 and 2014 seasons healthy, but durability has become an issue again with the notoriously injury-prone passer. Roethlisberger, known for taking a lot of hits, has missed six games due to injuries in the last two years. His home/away statistical splits also have become a concern. In other words, he has been far more productive at Heinz Field than on the road. During the last two years, Roethlisberger has tossed 36 touchdown passes in 16 home games played but has thrown only 14 scoring strikes in 14 road contests played. Roethliberger's receiver corps looks stronger for 2017. Martavis Bryant returns from his one-year suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Bryant slides back into his deep-threat role as the third option in the Steelers passing attack behind studs Brown and Bell. Capable Eli Rodgers came on late in 2016 and looks like the frontrunner to handle the slot duties. The release of Ladarius Green has left serviceable Jesse James as the presumed starter at tight end. If Roethlisberger stay reasonably healthy and play better on the road with Bryant back in the lineup, he clearly has fantasy QB1 upside.

Passing: 4520 Yards, 29 TD, 18 INT.
Rushing: 25 Yards, 1 TD.
