Ben Roethlisberger Player Profile

If you are a football fan who just can’t take no for an answer, then this fantasy football Ben Roethlisberger player profile should be just what you need. As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts.  When you don’t see us talking about Christine Michael or Mike Davis, don’t get mad at us for neglecting your favorite sleeper.  Get mad at yourself for having bad taste in football players.

When looking at my player profiles, It is important to note that I think quarterback play is replaceable for low-end QB1’s.  So when I evaluate quarterback prospects, I am looking for top three potential  This will skew my perspective and analysis.  Because I am gambling on upside, I tend to draft two quarterbacks and the quarterbacks I draft tend to be younger.

Fantasy Football Ben Roethlisberger Overview: So I lead off this article by talking about how I favor youth when evaluating quarterbacks.  This Ben Roethlisberger player profile will be the exception.  The fact is, Big Ben has been a QB1 in each of the last four years, but his current ADP is thirteen amongst quarterbacks.  As long as he is leading an offense that has Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, and JuJu Smith-Schuster, I will find it very hard not to find value in his current draft position.  My only concern is that he is getting older and has missed eight games in the last three years.  While that might not seem like a lot, with his aggressive playing style, I would worry that this is the year age and injury catch up to him.

Fantasy Football Ben Roethlisberger Strategy:  If his ADP remains where it is when you are drafting, just load up on running backs and wide receivers and get yourself this stud quarterback in the 8th or 9th round.  If you draft Big Ben, I would grab a young quarterback with upside to hedge my bets.

Ceiling:  Perhaps like a fine wine, Big Ben will age gracefully and pull out one of his best seasons.  Maybe he even ends the year as a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Floor:  What will actually happen is Big Ben is going to stupidly run into a linebacker, get himself hurt for a quarter of the season, all while acting like he might play.  But he won’t play.  Instead he will leave your roster and your soul empty of a starting quarterback, while you miss your fantasy playoffs.  Why? Because Big Baby Roethlisberger just couldn’t say no to a meaningless first down when the Steelers were already up by 20 points in the fourth quarter.
