Steelers reveal Week 6 inactives


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2013) The Steelers' list of inactives for Week 6 at the Jets includes wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger), quarterback Landry Jones, defensive lineman Hebron Fangupo, offensive lineman Cody Wallace, offensive lineman Mike Adams , running back Isaac Redman and linebacker Chris Carter.

Jones, Fangupo, Wallace, Adams, Redman and Carter are all healthy scratches.


Steelers reorganize running back depth chart


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2013) With Le'Veon Bell on the verge of returning from a foot injury, the Steelers have reorganized their running back depth chart heading into Week 4 at Minnesota. Bell and Felix Jones are now listed as co-starters, with Jonathan Dwyer as the third-string running back and former starter Isaac Redman listed as the fourth-string running back.

Avoid the Steelers running backs in Fantasy Football


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/12/2013) Isaac Redman will make his second consecutive start for the Steelers on Monday at the Bengals. Newly re-signed rusher Jonathan Dwyer will back him up. Felix Jones adds depth on the bench. 

None of these guys should be in active Fantasy lineups. Redman's last six starts resulted in Fantasy point totals of 2, 9, 4, 20, 1 and a sickening minus-2 just this past week. Dwyer has proven to be inconsistent over his career and people in the Steelers organization questioned his committment and work ethic before cutting him before the start of this season. Jones is basically out of the picture.

Making matters worse is the matchup against a Bengals defense that yielded some numbers to Bears starter Matt Forte in Week 1 but still boasts a strong front seven. Forte is eons better than anyone the Steelers have on their active roster.

The only Steelers RB worth owning is Le'Veon Bell and he won't be back for another month. Pass on Steelers running backs in Week 2. 


Jonathan Dwyer could capitalize on Isaac Redman's struggles


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(9/9/2013) The Steelers re-signed running back Jonathan Dwyer on Monday, and the state of Pittsburgh's running game "may compel coach Mike Tomlin to play Dwyer if not feature him," reports ESPN.com. Isaac Redman started Sunday and fumbled twice while gaining 9 yards on eight carries.

The report says Dwyer was the team's most talented runner when the Steelers released him Aug. 31 and instead kept Felix Jones. Dwyer led the team with 623 rushing yards last year.

Pittsburgh visits Cincinnati next Monday.


Steelers' running back situation gaining clarity


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3:30 pm ET) Isaac Redman was the Steelers' first-team running back Monday, an expected move considering the release of Jonathan Dwyer. Redman, who returned from a stinger to a full practice, will be backed up by Felix Jones and LaRod Stephens-Howling.

Meanwhile, rookie running back Le'Veon Bell is aiming to return from his foot injury by Week 2 but is "not making promises."


One less in the battle: Jonathan Dwyer cut


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2013) One confusing backfield situation in the NFL might have just gotten a bit of clarity. In a surprising move, Pittsburgh has waived running back Jonathan Dwyer, according to Steelers Depot.

Dwyer appeared to be in the mix for extended playing time along with Isaac Redman, Felix Jones and LaRod Stephens-Howling after rookie Le'Veon Bell sprained his foot. Bell was the projected starter, but he will likely be out through September. The strong performance by Jones at Carolina in the final preseason game might have put the former Dallas standout in the lead.

The 24-year-old Dwyer showed flashes of talent in 2012 by rushing for 624 yards and a 4.0 average while adding 18 receptions.

Even as a starter Isaac Redman not a great Fantasy choice


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/27/2013) Jonathan Dwyer has been an underachieving bull rusher with three career 100-yard games and under 60 yards rushing in the six other games has has double-digit carries in.

LaRod Stephens-Howling had a pair of 100-yard games last season with the Cardinals (20-plus carries in each) but has had only six career games with double-digit carries over four years and been below 60 rush yards in three of them. He's considered more of a passing-downs back.  

Le'Veon Bell is trying to salvage his foot after spraining it during the preseason and shouldn't be on the field until after the Steelers' Week 5 bye. Felix Jones is just hoping to make a roster. 

So you shouldn't be so surprised that the Steelers are turning to Isaac Redman to be their starter, even if he's going to miss all but two carries this preseason with a stinger. 

Over his last two seasons Redman has posted 889 yards on 220 carries (4.04 avg.) with five scores, adding 37 catches for 322 yards (8.7 avg.). It's not much to hang your hat on but at least he has some experience and enough versatility that none of the Steelers' healthy backs can provide. Plus it's not like Redman will be the only rusher -- Dwyer and others will definitely pitch in. 

Redman's good enough to draft to a bench to begin the season. Pittsburgh does not have a friendly schedule for its runners to begin the year (Tennessee, at Cincinnati, Chicago and at Minnesota) so it won't be easy for Redman. But the late-round price tag isn't so bad. 


Isaac Redman sits out second straight


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2013) Steelers running back Isaac Redman was ruled inactive for Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs as he continues to be bothered by a stinger. Redman has missed two straight preseason games with the injury. Jonathan Dwyer will start in his place, according to ESPNa.

Steelers acquire Felix Jones from Eagles


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/23/2013) Mired in a running back mess, the Steelers have traded linebacker Adrian Robinson to the Eagles for running back Felix Jones according to ESPN

Jones was signed by the Eagles this offseason to provide depth at running back but fell to fourth on their depth chart. The Steelers are in need of bodies following a foot injury to rookie starter Le'Veon Bell

Jones had some decent games with the Cowboys and averaged at least 4.3 yards per carry until last year when he dipped to 3.6. While his overall numbers are impressive, he spent 2012 battling for reps and had just 664 total yards -- but five touchdowns -- over 16 games with Dallas. 

Jones will battle for a spot on the running back depth chart with LaRod Stephens-Howling, Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman and Baron Batch


Le'Veon Bell has mid-foot sprain, MRI coming


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/20/2013) Steelers rookie rusher Le'Veon Bell left the team's preseason game at Washington with a right mid-foot sprain and will have an MRI on Tuesday according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. As Adam Schefter of ESPN pointed out, sometimes these types of foot sprains are Lisfranc injuries that require significant surgery and rehabilitation.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review wouldn't "bank on" Bell being the feature back following the injury. 

Bell figured to be the primary rusher for the Steelers this season but was first limited by what is believed to be a knee sprain. A more serious injury could knock off games from his rookie year. 

If Bell were to miss time the Steelers would likely roll with a committee of backs. Jonathan Dwyer could be an early-downs candidate while Isaac Redman and LaRod Stephens-Howling battle for passing downs work.

Dwyer had 68 yards on 14 carries and two grabs for 12 yards on Monday night. 


Aching Isaac Redman, Le'Veon Bell could play Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2013) Steelers running backs Isaac Redman (stinger) and Le'Veon Bell (left knee bruise) are listed as co-starters on the depth chart this week despite their injuries. Though both were limited in practice on Friday, Mike Tomlin told Steelers Depot that neither has been ruled out for the preseason game Monday night in Washington. 

Steelers list Isaac Redman, Le'Veon Bell as co-starters


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(8/14/2013) The new Steelers' depth chart lists Isaac Redman and rookie Le'Veon Bell as co-starters at running back, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Steelers look at plans for running back in opener


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/8/2013) Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell is expected to work with the starters during Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"Don't be surprised if you see Le'Veon getting some snaps with those guys," Tomlin said. "I think he has earned that. I think how he is running the ball speaks for itself. "Don't be surprised to see him getting some snaps after those guys are out of the game, as well. He, like a lot of guys, we need to get a lot of exposure to."

Tomlin did not indicate how he will use the other running backs, including incumbents Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer. But it is clear the Steelers are clearing the path for Bell to be their workhorse, according to the report.


Steelers want featured back


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/8/2013) Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson wants one guy to shoulder the load this year instead of a committee approach, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The thought is rookie Le'Veon Bell will be that guy even though Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman and LaRod Stephens-Howling are expected to have a role.

"You would love to have a back who can play first down through third down," Wilson said. "That’s always the best. Now, you have players who can spell a starter, then you have situational players that have strengths in other areas, put for the most part you always want a guy who is there first through third."


Plax: Steelers will run a lot


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/30/2013) Steelers receiver Plaxico Burress believes the offense will lean on its ground game in 2013. 

"I mean, this is Pittsburgh," Burress told USA Today. "We're going to run the football, that's what our offense is going to be about. We're going to have to run the football. The Steelers and running the ball go hand-in-hand, like a ball and chain. Receivers are committed to helping run the ball, blocking downfield, not just catching the ball and worrying about scoring touchdowns.

"Everybody else around the league is going ... up-tempo, flashy, four- and five-wide, pistol, shotgun, spread passing. We're going to stay true to our roots and run the football."

This news should be received well by Le'Veon Bell, who is working with the first-team offense in camp ahead of Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman.

Ben Roethlisberger, on the other hand, might not wholeheartedly approve. 


Le'Veon Bell headed for three-down role?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/23/2013) Le'Veon Bell has the college tape to prove he can handle first and second downs without a problem. Third downs? He should be capable according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, who says Bell has a clear path to a huge amount of playing time with the Steelers if he can put together a good training camp. Bell has shown an ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and is improving as a pass blocker, giving him a chance for that third-down work.

Isaac Redman, LaRod Stephens-Howling and Jonathan Dwyer will compete with Bell for playing time with Redman the only serious competition according to the paper.
