Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer (quad) is getting in a full session of practice on Thursday, according to Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest. It's the Steelers first practice of the week as they gear up for Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. Dwyer sat out in Week 9 with a nagging quad injury, but he's fully expected to return on Monday.
Dwyer has 58 carries for 299 yards and 5.2 YPC on the season.
Fantasy Impact: Isaac Redman continues to complicate matters in the Steelers' backfield. He rushed for 147 yards and a TD against the Giants, and coach Mike Tomlin says he will continue to "ride the hot hand".
In normal circumstances, Dwyer should have a nice night against KC's woeful defense, but how many touches will he get? This situation is too uncertain for me to trust him in fantasy. Start him at your own risk.
