Ben Roethlisberger
Let’s start where the offense starts, with the quarterback. Ben Roethlisberger is a QB that puts up pretty good fantasy numbers when he is on the field. Last season was the first one he didn’t miss a game in quite some time and he put up enough numbers to rank ninth in my league (which has pretty normal scoring settings) among quarterbacks.

This season, I expect him to stay healthy again and have a smoother go at things with an improved offensive line and hopefully having all of the offensive players healthy at the beginning of the season (fingers crossed). I’m projecting a stat-line of 4300 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions for him this year.
That would put him on track to be the sixth or seventh best quarterback worthy of a third or fourth round pick, depending on how the other people in your league draft. Generally, Ben is underrated and can be had in the fifth or sixth round. You do want to be sure to have a good backup in case the injuries come back this year, though.
