Steelers facing decisions on three running backs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(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 | CBSSports.com
(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.

Felix Jones does little in change-of-pace role


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2013) Running back Felix Jones, who had just three touches when rookie Le'Veon Bell made his NFL debut in the Steelers' last game in Week 4, saw a little more work in relief of Bell Week 6 at the Jets. He had five carries for 18 yards and one catch (on a pass from wide receiver Antonio Brown) for 15 yards.

Jones didn't get much work with the Steelers running out the clock late, though. Even for the series Bell missed with a foot injury, Jonathan Dwyer, who had three carries for 10 yards, got the call instead.

The Steelers host the Ravens in Week 7.


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.

Felix Jones coughs it up vs. Bears


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2013) Steelers running back Felix Jones earned the start but had some fumbling issues Sunday night against the Bears.

Jones lost a fumble during the team’s opening drive of the second half. He finished the game with 47 yards of total offense, logging 34 yards on seven carries (4.9 yards per carry) and 13 yards on two receptions in a 40-23 defeat.

Jones has rushed for 71 yards on 17 carries through three games. He will play the Vikings overseas in Week 4.

Felix Jones looking to take charge in Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2013) Steelers running back Felix Jones will be looking to lead the way in Pittsburgh's running game heading into Week 3 at home against the Bears.

Jones took the charge last week, rushing for a team-high 37 yards on 10 carries against the Bengals. He'll face a Chicago defense that yielded 123 yards on the ground to Minnesota last week. Running backs have averaged 10.0 Fantasy points per game through two weeks against the Bears.

Pittsburgh's running back situation is way too complicated to trust in Fantasy. Both Jones and Redman have 10 carries through two games. Jonathan Dwyer is also expected to be in the mix as well, which could cause more confusion. At this point, there are other running backs with better matchups (in most formats) heading into Week 3. Consider Jones a low-end flex option at best against the Bears.

Felix Jones gets praise from Mike Tomlin


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2013) The Steelers might be hanging their hats on Felix Jones as the savior of their meager running game if the comments from Mike Tomlin on Tuesday are any indicaton. Jones rushed for 37 yards on a team-high 10 carries in the MNF loss at Cincinnati.

Tomlin praised Jones for his ability to bounce outside and for knowing when to cut vertically, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting.

It appears the late preseason pickup will remain the team's featured back at least until the return of rookie Le'Veon Bell from a Lisfranc injury. Jones was not targeted in the passing game against the Bengals.


Felix Jones has one nice run


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2013) Steelers running back Felix Jones, who got the start after Isaac Redman was shaken up on the opening kickoff, showed some juice on a 14-yard draw that set up a Pittsburgh field goal. But otherwise he wasn't very productive against the Bengals.

Jones finished with 37 yards on 10 carries. He faces the Bears in Week 3.


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. 


Felix Jones a non-entity Sunday


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2013) Steelers running back Felix Jones wasn't used in an offensive capacity on Sunday of Week 1 during a loss to the Titans. With Isaac Redman struggling and LaRod Stephens-Howling getting injured during the game, coach Mike Tomlin still didn't give any touches to Jones. 

Jones didn't see a target in the passing game or carry in the run game for the Steelers, despite him being one of two healthy backs by the end of the game. The Steelers play at Cincinnati Week 2. 


Felix Jones without guaranteed touches


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2013) Steelers running back Felix Jones will likely be the second string option behind Isaac Redman in the Week 1 game at home against Tennessee. The good news is that the Titans gave up the third-most Fantasy points per game last season to opposing running backs.

The bad news is that while Jones will see some touches, he's expected to see most of his usage in the return game for the Steelers. Jones may also lose touches to LaRod Stephens-Howling.

The last time Jones played against the Titans was back in Week 5 of 2010 when he was with Dallas. He rushed 15 times in that game for 109 yards. Unfortunately, due to the fact he's not expected to see too many touches, he's not really a recommended Fantasy option for Week 1. 

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 haven't set RB rotation behind starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2013) Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced Tuesday running back Isaac Redman will start Week 1 against the Titans. As for the backup situation, Tomlin said he hasn't decided how he will use LaRod Stephens-Howling and Felix Jones.

"Obviously we will spell Isaac," Tomlin said. Tomlin added Stephens-Howling will be in the mix for carries Sunday and "we'll continue to get to know Felix."


Steelers' running back situation gaining clarity


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(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.

Felix Jones making lasting impression


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2013) Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said "it appears" running back Felix Jones is becoming more than just a stopgap addition to the lineup.

"(Thursday against the Panthers) will be a big opportunity for him to state his case, but make no mistake, what he did last week against the Chiefs was pretty impressive," Tomlin said, per NFL.com. "This is a guy who had zero practices. He had a hotel ballroom walk-through, and he showed up and contributed positively to our efforts. We know his pedigree, and he’s not new to the National Football League. We’re excited about seeing what he can do for us."


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.
