Jonathan Dwyer (Pittsburgh) UP
Projection: 120 carries for 500 rushing yards 4 total touchdowns 15 catches for 110 receiving yards (85 pts standard, 100 pts PPR)
Isaac Redman (Pittsburgh) UP
Projection: 100 carries for 440 rushing yards 4 total touchdowns 20 catches for 160 receiving yards (84 pts standard, 104 pts PPR)
Le’Veon Bell (Pittsburgh) DOWN
Steelers rookie running back Le’Veon Bell is expected to miss at least 6-8 weeks with a Lisfranc injury and he could be a candidate for the injured reserve with designation to return, which would put him out until at least week 9 and his status is even more up in the air than that. There’s no guarantee he’ll be the feature back upon return either. In his absence, the underwhelming trio of Isaac Redman, Jonathan Dwyer, and La’Rod Stephens-Howling will split carries. Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley likes rotating backs anyway. It’s a fantasy situation to avoid.
