Not The End For Big Ben?

Ben Roethlisberger's 2019 season comes to an end after just two games into the year but according to the Quarterback his career is not over. The Pittsburgh Steelers QB suffered an elbow injury in the 1st half of the team's match-up against the Seahawks and will undergo season ending surgery.

Roethlisberger turns 39 in March and has hinted at retirement the last few seasons, but he released a statement indicating he will return in 2020. Steelers Maven Noah Strackbein, Bull Market Fantasy's Katherine Ross and I weigh in on Roethlisberger's future in the NFL.

Roethlisberger's Fantasy Football Impact on Steelers

Mason Rudolph will now take over under-center for the Steelers which is a severe downgrade for all of the Pittsburgh playmakers in fantasy football including running back James Conner, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and tight end Vance McDonald.

Hope he comes back. Would be a crappy way for his career to end.

I wonder if he'll actually be ready for the start of the season. Not sure he will be.
