“Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry!” This quote from The Incredible Hulk is one that matches the Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger this week. After last weekend when there were reports of the team and Ben wanting to move on from each other, the guy they call Big Ben responded on how much he wants to stay in Pittsburgh all week. He then showed it with his play against the Detroit Lions in Week 11.
Big Ben had a great game passing for 367 yards and four touchdowns. This was a signature Roethlisberger game.
I know many Fantasy Football owners who own the two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback are wondering this question: Will Big Ben continue to play like this for the rest of the season and be reliable for my Fantasy team the rest of the way?
The answer is yes!
If you look at the remaining schedule for the Steelers, they have some very favorable matchups the rest of the season. The Steelers will play teams like the Green Bay Packers as well as the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals, which are teams that Roethlisberger has had success against in the past.
The Steelers are going to help his stats out the rest of the way, because the team has not played consistent defense the entire season. This means Ben will have to throw the ball and win some games for his team.
Ben Roethlisberger has been one of the best big game quarterbacks since he came into the league. With the Steelers having every one of their remaining games be a “do or die” game, this means he will be playing at the top of his game. This means big chances for your Fantasy Football team moving forward.
