Isaac Redman expected to get the start Monday: Fantasy implications

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Isaac Redman will be the starting back Monday night as the Steelers will ride the hot hand. We break down the fantasy implications.

According to Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Steelers RB Isaac Redman will be getting the start on Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. Redman got the bulk of the workload last week with Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer both out, and responded with 147 yards and a TD on 26 carries.

Dwyer is expected to be back this week, with Mendenhall possibly sitting out one more game.

Fantasy Impact: Hard to say. Redman has been thoroughly unimpressive before going off on the Giants, and Dwyer could easily steal his carries away if he gets off to a slow start.

On the other hand, the Chiefs are in full meltdown mode right now, so both guys could have nice fantasy numbers. Consider Redman a decent flex play this week.
