2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
Over the past two years, Roethlisberger has seen his number of pass attempts spike under offensive coordinator Todd Haley. He set a career highs in completions (408), attempts (608) and passing yards (4,952) in 2014 while tying his career high in touchdown passes (32). In addition, Ben had a career-high 67.1 percent completion rate. His growth is due to the development of Le'Veon Bell and the electric talent of WR Antonio Brown. Last year, he had seven 300-yard passing games, one 400-yard game and one 500-yard game. Six of those nine performances came at home. He finished only two games with three TDs and had a pair of six-touchdown outings. A big part of his step forward was the improved play of the team's second- and third-year receivers. This season should be an exciting one for Steelers fans with Roethlisberger possibly having six viable receiving options when you add rookie Sammie Coates into the mix. I'd love to say he could throw 40 touchdowns, but Ben will face some tough defenses this year. Roethlisberger, with all that surrounding talent, should still finish as a top-five fantasy QB for the second straight year. I see 4,800-plus yards with 35-plus TDs.
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger
The Pittsburgh Steelers have cut kicker Josh Scobee and replaced him with Chris Boswell. Scobee has been a disaster this season. He has only made 60 percent of his field goal attempts this season. The final nail in Scobee's coffin was missing two field goals in Thursday night's heartbreaking loss to the division rival Ravens. Boswell will be the team's fourth kicker this season. Shaun Suisham and Garrett Hartley were both placed on injured reserve.Fantasy Analysis:
This has been a nightmarish kicking situation. It was inevitable that it would do the Steelers in eventually and it did Week 4. Now they move on to Boswell whose most redeeming quality is not being Scobee. This situation should be completely avoided in all Fantasy formats. The Steelers aren't going to score enough to make their kickers relevant without Ben Roethlisberger and aren't going to kick extra points once he returns.
