Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has not named a starter at running back for Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. Instead, he will favor whoever among Rashard Mendenhall, Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman is running the ball well, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Dwyer and Mendenhall were inactive last week, allowing Redman to rush for 147 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries in a win over the New York Giants. Dywer (quad) is expected to play Monday, and Mendenhall (Achilles') will see a heavier workload in practice but is still questionable.
Fantasy Impact: The Steelers' running back situation remains extremely muddy, especially since all three backs have performed well at different times recently. Each one has racked up over 100 total yards in a game sometime in the last four weeks.
Keep an eye on injury reports this week. If a feature back emerges, he is worth starting in standard leagues against a bad Chiefs defense. Until then, you're playing with fire by moving Redman, Dwyer or Mendenhall into your starting lineup.
