Steelers facing decisions on three running backs


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/9/2014) The Steelers will try to re-sign free agent running backs Jonathan Dwyer and LaRod Stephens-Howling but not Felix Jones, reports ESPN.com. Dwyer would be an ideal backup to Le'Veon Bell but might leave for a chance to play more, the report said.

Stephens-Howling must prove he's healthy following ACL surgery. If he's the only one who returns, the Steelers would seek to bolster the position through free agency or the draft, the report said.


Several Steelers make small contributions to victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Two greatly used Steelers wideouts caught just three passes between them Sunday at Green Bay, but one was a biggie.

That one was a 1-yard scoring snag in the first quarter by Emmanuel Sanders, who finished with two receptions for 7 yards. Jerricho Cotchery caught one pass for 9 yards in the win.

Also pitching in were running backs Jonathan Dwyer, who both ran and received for 7 yards, and fullback Will Johnson, who caught one pass for 6 yards. Fellow back Felix Jones had one rushing attempt for 6 yards.


Steelers get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/16/2013) Several Steelers played a minor offensive role in the win over the Bengals. Running back Jonathan Dwyer ran six times for 26 yards, while running back Felix Jones carried five times for 22 yards.

Receiver Jerricho Cotchery drew three targets, including one in the end zone, but was limited to a 2-yard reception. 


Steelers backup backs do little in loss to Dolphins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Steelers backing running backs Jonathan Dwyer and Felix Jones did  little in Week 14, in a 34-28 loss to the Dolphins. Dwyer rushed the ball for 8 yards on three attempts, while Jones managed just 7 yards on two attempts. Neither player had a reception.

Le'Veon Bell continues to get the majority of the work in Pittsburgh, leaving little room for anyone else in the offense. That trend should continue in Week 15 against the Bengals. 


Steelers backs do their part in Sunday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Several Steelers made small contributions to a blowout win Sunday in Cleveland. Among them were Will Johnson, who caught one passes for 9 yards, and fellow running back Felix Jones, who matched that total on two carries and added one catch for 4 yards. Running back Jonathan Dwyer added 7 yards on six attempts and caught a pass for 1 yard.

Also notable was that wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery was blanked for the first time since Oct. 13. He had caught five touchdown passes in his previous three games.


Steelers backup runners do little on the ground


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Steelers backup running backs Jonathan Dwyer and Felix Jones failed to make an impact Week 11.

Dwyer received a goal line carry on his only attempt, but failed to convert. He did catch two passes for 12 yards. Jones also ran for no gain on his only attempt. He did not factor into the passing game.

Both players will take on the Buccaneers Week 12.


Steelers backup running backs receive just two carries


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Steelers backup running backs Jonathan Dwyer and Felix Jones combined for just two carries against the Patriots. 

Le'Veon Bell was the primary runner, receiving 20 touches throughout the game. The team was down by double-digits at three separate points in the game, and couldn't focus much on getting their other runners involved. Dwyer did make the most of his only carry, picking up 30 yards. Jones had just 5 yards rushing. 

Both players each had one reception as well. Dwyer again proved to be a big-play threat, picking up 23 yards. Jones picked up just 4 yards on one catch. He was targeted three times. 

Dwyer and Jones will take on the Bills Week 10.


Steelers get minor contribution from role players Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) The Steelers received key contributions from several role players during Sunday's loss to the Raiders in Week 8.

In the running game, Jonathan Dwyer had three carries for 9 yards while Felix Jones had one carry for minus-1 yard. Jones caught two passes for 20 yards. Wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery also contributed with three catches for 39 yards on four targets.

Steelers get contributions from role players in Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) The Steelers received minor offensive contributions from a few role players Week 7 against the Ravens.

In the passing game, wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery caught four passes from Ben Roethlisberger for 41 yards while Derek Moye had only one catch for a gain of 19 yards.

In the running game, Felix Jones had five carries for 16 yards (3.2 yards per carry) and caught one pass for a gain of 3 yards. Jonathan Dwyer had one handoff for a gain of 4 yards in a 19-16 win.

Steelers RBs take back seat to Le'Veon Bell


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) Steelers running backs Jonathan Dwyer and Felix Jones did little behind starter Le'Veon Bell in the running game Sunday from London. Facing the Vikings in a losing effort, Dwyer rushed twice for 7 yards and Jones managed two carries for 3 yards. 

Bell rushed 16 times for 57 yards and two scores in the loss. Jones caught one pass for 4 yards in the game and Dwyer did not make a catch. 

Pittsburgh has a bye Week 5 and returns Week 6 against the Jets. 


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. 


Steelers announce primary return specialists


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2013) Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced Tuesday wide receiver Antonio Brown will be the primary punt returner and Felix Jones will be the primary kickoff returner heading into Week 1 against the Titans.

Steelers' running back situation gaining clarity


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(9/2/2013) 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. 


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


Felix Jones hurt Tuesday


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/7/2013) Eagles running back Felix Jones left Eagles practice Tuesday with a hamstring injury.

Per the Philadelphia Inquirer, Jones hasn't shined in camp and could lose the No. 3 role to fellow back Chris Polk


Eagles looking at running back depth


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/10/2013) The Eagles have to make a decision on their backup running backs behind LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown, reports the team's official website. The group includes Chris Polk, Felix Jones and Matthew Tucker, and the report is unsure how many the team will keep.

Polk has much to prove entering his second season after a rookie year spent on the sidelines. Polk has trimmed down this offseason to keep himself in better shape and will have every opportunity to prove himself throughout training camp.

Jones is the veteran of the Eagles' running backs after five seasons with the Cowboys and has been an explosive player during his career, rushing for an impressive 4.8 yards per carry. But Jones is coming off a 2012 season during which he posted a career-low 3.6 yards per carry and there is a real question as to how much he has left in the tank.

Tucker is an undrafted rookie out of TCU and does appear to provide a different dynamic as the biggest running back on the roster at 6-1, 227 pounds. Tucker will have to prove he can catch the ball and pass protect at the NFL level, but he will be an intriguing player to follow throughout the next month and beyond.
