Steelers inactive reports: Rashard Mendenhall out, Jonathan Dwyer in for fantasy owners

Joe Sargent

Rashard Mendenhall is inactive for Monday Night, while Jonathan Dwyer is active and ready to go. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsubrgh Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) is officially inactive for Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. Mendenhall hasn't played since suffering an Achilles injury back in Week 6. He got in limited practice this week and may be eyeing a Week 11 return.

Meanwhile, RB Jonathan Dwyer (quad) is active and expected to back up Isaac Redman. Dwyer sat out Week 9 with the quad injury.

Fantasy Impact: Isaac Redman will be the starting back tonight, and the Steelers plan on riding the "hot hand", so expect to see lots of Dwyer if Redman struggles early.

The game is going to be a rainy, windy mess so there should be plenty of touches to go around for Redman and Dwyer. They are both fine fantasy flex plays against KC's crumbling defense.
