2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Oct-13-2016 by Shawn Childs


Update (10/13): Roethlisberger has been immense in his last two games (680 yards and nine TDs) while averaging 9.2 yards per pass attempt. His success has been helped by the return of Le'Veon Bell, which opens up the passing game. Two weeks ago Miami had no answer for A.J. Green (10/173/1 on 12 targets) while looking bad in pass coverage as well in Week 2 vs. the Patriots in the first half with Jimmy Garoppolo behind center (326 yards and three TDs). The Dolphins faced two weak passing QBs (CLE and TEN), but Mariota still beat them for three TDs. Antonio Brown has three TDs in the last two games, but he's been quiet in catches (13) and yards (142) due to game score. Very winnable matchup, but Ben tends to have less value on the road. I have a feeling Bell scores a couple of TDs, which will hurt Roethlisberger's upside if the both TDs come on the ground. In his last road game, the Steelers struggled to pass block (four sacks). I'm thinking he's a fade this week even with Brown playing well.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
8.12 Benny Ricciardi - Everyone was waiting on QB which I get, but it was getting a tad ridiculous that people were drafting WR4s and RB2s with top 5 QB options on the board still. I got two of my top 5 guys at the QB position in rounds 7 and 8, meaning I am comfortable knowing I probably have a QB better than my opponent every week of the season right now except maybe one or two games.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
8.10 Roto Experts - Joe Gallina - There was a big run at quarterbacks after my Fleener pick, and I needed to react. I wanted Bortles, but he was gone, so I took one of the toughest QBs in football who plays alongside the best receiver in the game.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
8.10 Scout Fantasy - Dr. Roto - I was pretty happy to see Big Ben there in the 8th round. Even without Bryant the Steelers offense will be explosive.
