Isaac Redman says he'll start Monday vs. Chiefs: Fantasy implications

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Isaac Redman says he'll start Monday night when the Steelers host the Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Isaac Redman said Saturday that he will start Monday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Kansas City Chiefs, according to NFL.com. Redman started in Week 9 and ran for 147 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries.

Jonathan Dwyer is also expected to compete for carries after missing last week's game due to a quadriceps injury. Rashard Mendenhall is not expected to play after being listed as doubtful on the Steelers' injury report with an Achilles injury.

Fantasy Impact: Redman will apparently get first crack at carries, but the Steelers' coaches have said several times that they will ride the hot hand at running back going forward. Don't expect Dwyer to shirk away from competition, especially after racking up over 100 yards from scrimmage in Weeks 7 and 8.

Still, Redman is good Flex play this week going up against a bad Chiefs defense. He'd be a bit better if he had the backfield to himself, but such is football. Things will get very muddy once Mendenhall is healthy enough to play, however. Enjoy a productive Redman while you can.
