In his 10 professional seasons, Big Ben has only finished a full 16-game season twice. It is extremely unlikely that he will play in all 16 games this fall.

Passing Yards - 4,240

Roethlisberger has gone over 4,000 yards in three of the last five seasons. He will be a safe bet to eclipse the 4,000-yard mark again in 2014.

Touchdowns - 27

Big Ben has only eclipsed the 30-TD mark once in his career, but he still threw 28 last year, including at least one touchdown in all 16 games last season. The veteran will be a safe bet to once again go over 25 TDs.

Interceptions – 14

Roethlisberger has thrown under 16 interceptions in seven straight seasons. He is very safe with the ball and won’t hurt owners too much with turnovers.

Fumbles – 5

Roethlisberger has fumbled the ball 18 times over the past three seasons. His lackluster offensive line forces him to do more outside of the pocket, which occasionally causes him to put the ball on the carpet.
