Ben Roethlisberger throws passes to fellow Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger posted a video of himself throwing passes to teammates JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Conner, and Ryan Switzer.

What It Means:

It was the first time Roethlisberger threw to teammates since undergoing right elbow surgery last September. He continues to make progress in his recovery and is expected to be ready for the start of the season. The veteran quarterback only attempted 62 passes in two appearances last year, but Roethlisberger's 9.3-yard average depth of target would have been fifth-most among the 33 quarterbacks with at least 200 pass attempts. In 2018, Roethlisberger led the league and set a career-high with 5,129 passing yards and 34 touchdowns.

Big Ben is the QB13 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 4,391.3 yards, 29.5 touchdowns, and 13.7 interceptions over the course of the season.
