Chris Rainey steals fantasy score from Jonathan Dwyer

Joe Robbins

Chris Rainey managed to vulture a touchdown on Sunday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jonathan Dwyer has been the main man on the ground for the Steelers in Week 7, but Chris Rainey found himself stealing some goal line work, rushing for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

Dwyer has 12 carries for 70 yards on the night, while Rainey is sitting on just four carries for 17 yards and a score. The Steelers are relying on Dwyer for the most part, but Rainey might be in for an expanded role in the red zone right now.

Fantasy Impact: Baron Batch dropped an easy touchdown catch earlier, and it looks like he's worked himself out of this equation. Dwyer is running well so far, and should continue to keep fueling the ground game late into this matchup.

Rainey, though, appears to be winning over his coaches. He limits Dwyers values as the goal line back.
