Fantasy Analysis
Week 13 Projections
What the Steelers have endured the last week lacks much precedent, so we are treating this game like a Thursday game. The Steelers have become more pass-happy as the season has progressed, but that isn't the optimal way to attack this defense. They have a relentless pass rush, but have holes to exploit everywhere else. He could salvage his day with enough scores, but don't expect this to be a volume game.
Passing: 245 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 2 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
As you probably remember, Roethlisberger played the Steelers' 2019 regular-season opener and half of a Week 2 contest before he landed on season-ending injured reserve due to a right (throwing) elbow injury. The one-and-a-half contests played wasn't a large enough sample size to get a true read on an aging Roethlisberger's fantasy prospects in an offense that's now sans Antonio Brown (free agent) and Le'Veon Bell (Jets), and loaded with young players at the offensive skill positions. From 2017 through 2018, Roethlisberger, never a factor as a runner, passed for 303 yards and 2.0 touchdowns per contest in 31 games played with Brown and Bell in the lineup. As Roethlisberger returns for his age-38 season, he has some legit top-15 fantasy upside, but "Big Ben" comes with some questions, too. Is his surgically repaired throwing elbow right? Is JuJu Smith-Schuster good enough to replace Brown as the No. 1 wideout and go-to guy? The jury is still out on Smith-Schuster. Roethlisberger seems to have a rapport with James Washington, but can the Pittsburgh triggerman quickly build chemistry with Diontae Johnson, rookie second-rounder Chase Claypool, and veteran Eric Ebron? Can Roethlisberger stay on the field? Before his injury-torpedoed 2019, Roethlisberger missed seven contests from 2015-18 because of nagging ailments. There have been whispers that the Steelers will utilize a balanced attack to save some wear and tear on Roethlisberger.

Passing: 1210 Yards, 12 TD, 4 INT.
Rushing: 9 Yards, 0 TD.
