Click on the graph above to see a statistical breakdown of weekly predicted performance for Roethlisberger. He still retains decent value when he returns from suspension, but his overall value takes a significant hit by missing these games.

The Verdict: It would be best to avoid Roethlisberger all together when fantasy draft day comes along, especially in leagues with fewer teams. For leagues that start multiple quarterbacks, he may be a decent free agent acquisition when the suspension period comes to a close. In these league types, fantasy owners may consider dedicating a late draft pick to Dennis Dixon.
