2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Mike Wallace will be playing for a contract this season

(+) Antonio Brown emerged as a great WR2 while many say he is just as explosive as Wallace

(+) Might have the most diversified receiving corps in the entire league (speed/route-running/slot-play/run-after-the-catch/etc)

(+) Mendenhall’s injury should have the Steelers leaning on the pass early on and allow Big Ben to put up some prolific passing numbers

(+) Todd Haley is the new offensive coordinator and has proven in the past he can put on an aerial assault no matter the personnel

(+) The Steelers really improved their offensive line with their first two picks in the draft (G David DeCastro & T Mike Adams)

(+) Roethlisberger had five 300+ yard games

(+) He’ll be an excellent guy to have as your QB2 as he could easily put up QB1 numbers any week you need him

(+) Emmanuel Sanders is fully healthy and looking to prove he’s just as good as Antonio Brown

(–) Will the revamped offensive line be able to gel in training camp and protect Big Ben better than last season?

(–) Ben is slightly injury-prone due to him taking too many hits from standing in the pocket too long

(–) Threw one TD or less in 10 of 15 games in 2011

(–) Had seven games where he threw for under 250 yards

(–) The lack of a running game could lead opposing defenses to concentrate more on the pass

2009 Review

ben roethlisberger assault girls

This just in: Ben Roethlisberger's favorite artist is none other than Maxim's hottest girl (which we think is bogus by the way) for 2010, Katy Perry! We don't have any real confirmation on that, but based on his season, he was hot then cold, in then out. On one hand, at one point during the year Ben put together a nice winning streak of five straight games for the Steelers.  Not many other teams can lay claim to that long of a streak during the year.  On the other hand, he also gathered up a losing streak of five straight games for his crew as well.  

But that's not all. He threw for over 350 yards in a game four different times, with two of them going for over 400 yards, and the last one going for 503 yards (the high for the NFL in 2009).  Still, Ben also threw for under 225 yards on 5 separate occasions as well.  Overall, he ended up with one of the better fantasy seasons for QBs in the league, but you never knew what you were going to get from week to week, thus making him a risky start every time you turned to him.  It was, however, his best fantasy season points-wise to date, though off the field, it might have been his worst…


ben roethlisberger 2009 stats

~ Set career bests in completions (337), attempts (506), completion percentage (66.6%), yards (4,328), yards/attempt (8.5), and yards/game (288.5)

~ Set Pittsburgh franchise records in completions (337), completion percentage (66.6%), yards (4,328), and yards/game (288.5)

~ Became just the ninth QB in NFL history to pass for more than 500 yards in a game on 12-20-09 against the Green Bay Packers (503 yards)

2010 Fantasy Outlook

There are two reasons why we thinkBig Ben won't replicate his numbers of 2009. Firstly, they were boosted by a few extraordinary games, and even though you can’t take those games away from him, they’re not likely to happen again.  It’s been handed down from the higher-ups that the Steelers need to move back to the ground-and-pound offense that the franchise thrives upon, and coach Mike Tomlin agreed.  Secondly, and more importantly, he’s been suspended for at least the first four games of the season for violating the league’s Personal Conduct Policy. Roethlisberger still might have had the potential to end up as a Top 10-12 fantasy quarterback in 2010, but the chances of it happening now are slim to none. Even when he comes back from his suspension, he’s still a bit too inconsistent to use as a full-time fantasy starter, especially with fellow scandalmonger Santonio Holmes jettisoned off to the Jets this past offseason.

~ Team is moving back to focusing on the running game

~ Santonio Holmes is out of the mix playing with the New York Jets

~ Hines Ward is another year older, while his #2 receiver, Mike Wallace, will be just a sophomore in the NFL in 2010

~ His Hollywood party lifestyle finally caught up to him as he's suspended for the first 4 games

On a short leash

This is what we wrote a year ago:

"In five seasons, he holds many of the Steelers QB records and is well on pace to crush them all.  Above all else, he is a likable guy, and it’s difficult to detect even a shred of elitism from his direction.  He is perfect for the Steelers organization, and it’s a good bet that he’s one of the few guys to only play for one team in his career."

Jeesh... What a difference a year makes.

Ben signed a whopper before the ’08 season.  Eight years at $102 million, of which $33.2 million was guaranteed including a $25.2 million signing bonus.  Yowza!  Details on the yearly incentives are below:

2010 - $8.05 million

2011 - $11.6 million

2012 - $11.6 million

2013 - $11.6 million

2014 - $11.6 million

2015 - $12.1 million

2016 - Free Agent

*Steelers brass also wisely included a "no idiot" clause, making some of the bonus portions of this contract recoverable if Ben decides he doesn't want to wear a helmet while riding his motorcycle again.

Injury Report


Big Ben gets dinged up a bunch, but he’s a gamer, as evidenced by his playing in Super Bowl XLIII with two broken ribs. He missed one game due to a concussion last year, but he'll be good to go as soon as his suspension is over...

Martavis Reinstated

Pyro's take: Its time for a celebratory blunt, as Martavis Bryant is officially reinstated with the Steelers. There were rumors that the Steelers may not want Bryant back due to his off-field problems, but as of now he is an active Steelers WR.

Fantasy Goo: Bryant is the catalyst for the Steelers offense as he yields approximately 8 more PPG. Big Ben gets bolstered by ~60 yards per game and AB gets a ~3 FFP/game increase.

Big Ben Strikes Midnight

Pyro's take: Don't worry Steelers fans, Big Ben will be returning for his 14th season in Pitt. We can expect to see the home/away split present, but Big Ben will be a potential top 5 option again.

Fantasy Goo: Now the Steelers can shift their focus to Martavis Bryant's reinstatement and inking Le'Veon Bell long term. Martavis has shown a 7 point increase in output with Big Ben when on the field.

Bryant Puts The Bong Down: Applies for Reinstatement

Pyro's take: Martavis has applied for reinstatement this past week after missing the entire 2016 season due to suspension.

Fantasy Goo: This decision could impact Big Ben's plans on coming back for 2017 as Bryant when in the lineup from 2014-2015 increased Big Ben's average pass yards by 55 yards and .8 touchdowns per game.

The Killer Bs Out for Pitt

Pyro's take: Bell, Brown, and Big ben are all out

Fantasy goo: I think Landry is a sneaky start in DFS. I also like Eli Rodgers and even Cobi Hamilton.

Steelers Big Three Out Week 17

Pyro's take: All will rest Week 17 for their Wild Card Matchup.

Fantasy Goo: Eli Rodgers becomes a good play, yet to be seen if they will give the workload to D-Willy or Toussaint.

Big Ben To Turn Back the Clock vs Bengals

Pyro's take: Unfortunately the past has not been good for Big Ben. He averages 234 pass yards per game with 33TD's and 27 picks in 25 games. Along with this, Ben has maintained his road/home splits in 2016 split seeing a 10% drop in completion rating and throwing for 9 less touchdowns and 5 more INTs despite playing two less games on the road.

Fantasy Goo: Big Ben should have enough in him to supply the fantasy goo to Bell and Brown, but is a low-end QB1 at best in this matchup. fade him in DFS and look for a better matchup in your fantasy playoffs.

Big Ben Has Big Thanks Giving Days

Pyro's take: Averaging the last 3 Thanks Giving Games for Big Ben, he has 415 passing yards, 3.7 TDs, and just over 37 points on Draft Kings.

Fantasy Goo: If you look at the adjusted schedule for fantasy points against, Indy comes in dead last against opposing QBs.

While Everyone's looking at AB

Pyro's take: If you're looking for a sneaky DFS play, and yet to see Big Ben fully happy. Eli Rodgers could get a lot of looks in this game on quick drop back plays.

Big Ben Will Play, But He's on my Bench

Pyro's take: Big Ben is indeed active today.

Fantasy Goo: When he is on the road, his QB Rating is 10 points less than at home. In fact, he throws fewer TDs and his INTS go up considerably - an INT once every 41 tosses at home versus 1 every 34 on the road. Not only that, he really struggles against Baltimore on the road. Finally, last year when he came back from injury, he started very slow, throwing 3 INTS and only collecting 11.48 Draft Kings Points. Even in redraft, I am streaming this week.

Big Ben Could Miss Several Weeks

Pyro's take: ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could miss between 4-to-6 weeks after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.

Fantasy Goo: The 4-to-6 week timetable is longer than originally expected, and puts Big Ben's availability for Week 9 in jeopardy. He was originally expected to be ready following the team's Week 8 bye, but that seems unlikely now. Landry Jones will start for however long he is out, which means fantasy owners should downgrade the fantasy outlook of all of the Steelers' pass-catching weapons.

Wheaton Inactive in Week 2


Pyro's take: Fantasy Goo: Even though Ware and West had a divided work load in week #1, Ware was the man. In the end, he was the 2nd highest scoring PPR back last week. His play should garner him more touches this week. The bottom line is the man is damn good.

Wheaton has been declared inactive for Week #2. While they have numerous guys that will fill the role, Eli Rogers is the one to take. The young WR has talent and Big Ben has shown a trust in him thus far through the season. While the home game bodes well for Roethlisberger, in their last matchup, he put up just 229 yards and only 1 passing TD, so if you roll with Rogers, your expectations should stay grounded.

Mining to Ramp Up in Pittsburgh

Big Ben

Pyro's take: Big Ben is requesting that the Steelers attempt two-point conversions after every touchdown. The Steelers were successful on 72.7 or 8/11 on two-point tries. With the 2015 change in extra point yardage, 2 point conversions are on the rise.

Fantasy Goo: Roethlisberger converted all 8 of Pittsburgh's successful tries. Those of you who play in leagues that award points for successful two-point conversions; target Ben Roethlisberger(8), Aaron Rodgers(5), and Marcus Mariota (3). Ben's 8 additional points could help you win your weekly matchups if your league is competitive. There were 13 players with at least 2 successful tries (including the 3 QBs above) and 52 with 1 converted attempt.

Ben Roethlisberger has lost 15 pounds this offseason


Pyro's take: Ben Roethlisberger has been working on his "high-cardio" workout during the offseason, and the results are beginning to show. Getting in better shape may help his 34-year old body become less prone to injury.

He was severely damaged last year as he missed four games. Roethlisberger suffered from a medial collateral ligament sprain and a bone bruise. He also suffered a foot sprain, was under concussion protocol for a week and separated his shoulder on a hit from Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in an AFC wild-card playoff game.

Ben Roethlisberger said he will not need surgery on his injured shoulder.


Pyro's take: “From what I’ve been told by Doc [James] Bradley, no surgery,” Roethlisberger said on his weekly segment on 93.7 The Fan this morning. “The ligaments will scar up and heal on their own. The only thing he could foresee possibly down the road is cleaning out the arthritis and scars. I don’t foresee any surgeries anytime soon.”

Gerry Dulac reports there is 'no chance' Ben Roethlisberger (foot, questionable) plays Week 10


Pyro's take: Gerry Dulac has reported via Twitter "Ben listed as questionable but, as I said Wednesday in PG chat, has no chance of playing vs Browns. But he's progressing ahead of schedule."

Steelers have a week 11 bye, which is probably the reason to hold him out so that he can get two-weeks of rest.

Landry Jones will be the starter.
