Rashard Mendenhall Injury Update: Will Start and has fantasy value

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Rashard Mendenhall is ready to return. Should you trust him for Sunday Night Football

Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) was a full participant in practice for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and he is listed as probable to face the Ravens. He is expected to start.

Mendenhall has 19 carries for 74 yards and a TD for the Steelers in his two game where he has been healthy. He was the Steelers leading rusher last year with 928 yards on the ground.

Fantasy Impact: Mendy has been out of the lineup since October 11th and has been handled with kid gloves by the Steelers. He had offseason surgery on his torn ACL, but his Achilles has limited him to just two games this year and there will certainly be a chance he aggravates that injury.

Mendenhall's return will make it tough to take a chance on Jonathan Dwyer or Isaac Redman. The Steelers are likely going to develop into some sort of a time-share split, so Mendenhall is nothing more than a flex in most cases. He should be owned in all leagues, though.
