Jonathan Dwyer doubtful for Sunday, boosting Isaac Redman's fantasy value

Joe Sargent

Jonathan Dwyer missed another practice Friday and is doubtful to play this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer (quad) missed another day of practice on Friday and is officially listed as doubtful to play on Sunday against the New York Giants, reports Mike Bires. It's an alarming setback for the back, who was limited on Thursday.

With Rashard Mendenhall also expected to sit out, the starting job will fall to Isaac Redman, himself coming off an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: Dwyer has been on a nice hot streak lately, but fantasy owners should go ahead and pull him from their lineups this week.

Redman is going to be the hot waiver pickup on Friday, but how effective will he be? The Steelers could potentially be down to three RBs on the roster Sunday. I would tread carefully here, even against the Giants' 21st rushing defense.
