Ben Roethlisberger Opens Up About Addiction Issues

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said that he has fought off-the-field addictions over the years. "I've fallen as short as anybody. I've been addicted to alcohol. I've been addicted to pornography, which makes me then not the best husband, not the best father, not the best Christian I can be," Roethlisberger said. Big Ben also admitted that his Christian faith grew distant during his college days at Miami (Ohio). The veteran QB's season-ending elbow injury in the second week of the season brought Roethlisberger back to his faith. There are more questions than ever about the 38-year-old's health heading into the 2020 season. Roethlisberger can still be lights-out when the matchup is right, but he'll be more of a QB2 streamer for fantasy owners because of his age and injury history.

Ben Roethlisberger Pleased With His Progress

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) has been pleased with his progress. "He's comfortable and pleased where he is. Some people who had the opportunity to work with him are impressed and pleased where he is. The medical experts are comfortable where he is and his readiness for 2020," Tomlin said. Big Ben has had positive reports on his rehab from season-ending elbow surgery last year, but there is plenty of concern surrounding the 38-year-old's health heading into the 2020 season. He put up big numbers in 2018 but is often dealing with some sort of injury along the way. Roethlisberger can have big weeks here and there in the right matchups, but you shouldn't be relying on him as your weekly QB1.

JuJu Smith-Schuster Says Ben Roethlisberger Is Back

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has been impressed with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) in his return from elbow surgery. "You're getting a version that we all expect that he will be at. He's back," Smith-Schuster said. "He's doing what he's doing. He's throwing NFL passes, there's nothing more to that." Smith-Schuster had an extremely disappointing season with injuries mixed in, but it was mainly due to the fact that Big Ben wasn't on the field throwing him passes. When Roethlisberger's return, the entire Steelers offense should rebound if he can stay healthy. There's obvious risk with the 38-year-old QB, but if he is fully past his arm issues and stays on the field, he'll be a great value pick as a late-round QB2.
