Fantasy Football Projections: Ben Roethlisberger Ranked No. 6 Among Week 17 Quarterbacks

Playthisguy.com ranks Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger No. 6 among Week 17 quarterbacks, behind Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers and Matt Schaub, and ahead of Tom Brady. Roethlisberger is also projected to score 20.5 fantasy points this week.

That sounds about right. Roethlisberger could have a big game against the Browns, who aren’t well-equipped to stop him. The Steelers have a ton on the line this week, with a first-round playoff bye at stake, so there’s no reason for Roethlisberger to relax at all. That’s why he’s ranked ahead of someone like Brady, who has very little to play for. Roethlisberger and the Steelers are great plays this week if you’re worried about whether your fantasy stars will play, or will play their hardest. If for some reason you’re in a keeper league and you can still make trades, or if you’re choosing between Roethlisberger and another credible quarterback option, consider Big Ben.
