Jonathan Dwyer injury update: Probable, but how much fantasy value will he have?

Joe Sargent

Jonathan Dwyer is probable for Week 10 against the Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer (quad) is officially listed as probable for Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. Dwyer sat out in Week 9 with a lingering quad injury, but he got a full week of practice in and is fully expected to suit up on Monday.

Dwyer had two consecutive 100-yard games before the injury. In his place, Isaac Redman rumbled for 147 yards and will get the start again this week.

Fantasy Impact: The Steelers have been all about riding the "hot hand" at RB until Rashard Mendenhall is healthy. So if Redman struggles to start the game, expect to see Dwyer back out there.

For now, though, he's looking like a risky fantasy play. Go with Redman as your flex guy this week.
