Ben Roethlisberger losing out to running game
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/15/14) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had another big passing performance with 360 yards Week 15 against the Falcons, giving him at least 340 in four of his last five games.
But where were the touchdowns? He had zero, zip, nada. And since his back-to-back six-touchdown games in Weeks 8 and 9, that's been the norm. He's had no more than one in three of those five.
Meanwhile, Le'Veon Bell has had six of his seven rushing touchdowns this season during that same stretch ...
I think you can see where I'm going with this. For more major takeaways from Week 15, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.
Steelers QB Roethlisberger keys win without passing TD
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/14/14) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had not thrown for more than 330 yards without a touchdown in his NFL career until Sunday in Atlanta. He's not complaining, though. He still guided his team to victory to keep them in the midst of the playoff chase.
Roethlisberger completed 27 of 35 for 360 yards with nary a score or pick. He completed his first four passes for 52 yards and maintained his accuracy throughout. He was particularly efficient in the fourth quarter as his team held off the Falcons, hitting on 11 of 14 for 150 yards.
Big Ben will try to keep up the good work against visiting Kansas City in Week 16.
Ben Roethlisberger riding high again

|(12/7/14) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger put together another huge performance in Week 14, a 42-21 win over the Bengals.
Roethlisberger, who racked up 29 Fantasy points last week, followed it up with a 34-point showing Sunday. He once again came alive late, tossing two of his three touchdowns in the second half, including a 94-yarder to Martavis Bryant, the seventh time those two have hooked up in seven games.
Roethlisberger got off to a slow start to the season, topping 20 Fantasy points just once in the first six games. However, since Bryant made his debut in Week 7, Roethlisberger has at least 20 in five of seven games. This might be the most talented receiving corps Roethlisberger has ever played with, and he is enjoying the best Fantasy season of his career as a result.
Roethlisberger faces some tough matchups down the stretch, including two games against teams that rank among the 10 best at slowing down opposing quarterbacks in Week 16 and 17. However, with the Falcons on the schedule in Week 15, he should be a solid option yet again next Sunday.
Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger tops 350 yards, 3 TDs in rout of Bengals

|(12/7/14) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger reached 350 yards passing and threw three more touchdowns to lead Pittsburgh past Cincinnati 42-21 on Sunday.
After a scoreless first quarter, Roethlisberger connected with tight end Heath Miller on the goal line for a 1-yard touchdown. Then, Ben hit Le'Veon Bell for a 10-yard touchdown to give the Steelers a 17-14 lead. After a Bell rushing touchdown, Roethlisberger connected with Martavis Bryant for a 94-yard touchdown, the second longest of his career.
Roethlisberger and the Steelers will look to stay hot in Week 15 at Atlanta.
|Ben Roethlisberger remains at the helm of the Steelers offense, that's no surprise. But what might be a surprise is that he finished as a Top 12 Fantasy quarterback last season despite averaging less than 20 points per game -- only something he, Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick did. That was due to two very different halves to his season: He averaged 15.1 Fantasy points per game in his first seven matchups and finished with 22.2 Fantasy points per game in his final nine. The difference? He used the no-huddle and leaned on running back Le'Veon Bell as a receiver. Expect those things to continue this season. There's a little bit of concern that Roethlisberger's receiving corps won't be sharp since Emmanuel Sanders left and will be replaced by second-year receiver Markus Wheaton and veteran underachiever Darrius Heyward-Bey. But his offensive line should be better, which won't hurt. For Fantasy purposes the best news on Roethlisberger is that you won't have to spend a big pick to get him. He'll get taken with a late rounder in every single draft as a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback with modest potential. We love the idea of pairing him with Russell Wilson since he has a good matchup the week of Wilson's bye (and could replace Wilson if he gets off to a slow start).
