Will 2015 be Ben Roethlisberger's first MVP season?

New, comments

Big Ben has never won an MVP award. That could change this season. Plus, the fallout in Carolina from Kelvin Benjamin's injury, the latest offensive line injuries, fantasy news and more!

TOP PASSER: The experts in Las Vegas think that Ben Roethlisberger has the best chance of anyone to lead the league in passing yards this year, even more so than Aaron Rodgers. Could this be the year Big Ben wins his first MVP trophy? At the very least, he's in the prime of his career and Steelers fans can get excited about that.

BENJAMIN TEARS ACL: Wednesday was a bad one for the Panthers, who lost their best receiver, Kelvin Benjamin, to a torn ACL in practice. That puts more pressure on tight end Greg Olsen and rookie receiver Devin Funchess in the passing game. Will they sign Reggie Wayne as a fill-in for the season? The news is pushing Cam Newton's fantasy stock down too.
