Rashard Mendenhall was listed as limited in Monday's practice report. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (knee) was listed as limited in Monday's practice reports. The Steelers did not practice on Monday, so these reports are just a formality as they prepare for Thursday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Even if the Steelers did practice, they would likely limit Mendenhall's reps as a precaution. The important news is that he emerged from Sunday's game with no setbacks, playing 22-of-73 snaps in his season debut after a torn ACL. Mendenhall had 14 carries for 81 yards and a TD, and added two catches for 20 yards as he gave the running game a spark they never had with Isaac Redman or Jonathan Dwyer. Expect the Steelers to increase his workload this week. He's a great fantasy play against the Titans' porous run defense.
