When asked about Rashard Mendenhall's status for Week 15, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin revealed Tuesday that there will be no changes to the team's running back rotation. Mendenhall has been a healthy scratch for the last two weeks while Jonathan Dwyer has handled most of the Steelers' rushing load.
Mendenhall loss two fumbles in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, and has been in Tomlin's doghouse ever since. There is a good chance that Mendenhall will not play another snap for the Steelers this season.
Fantasy Impact: Mendenhall could very well be in another uniform next season. Fantasy owners should have dropped the running back by now, but if not, feel free to let him go as soon as possible. His fantasy value is zero at this point.
Dwyer is still the lead back in the Steelers' offense, but Isaac Redman and Chris Rainey should also continue to receive touches. He is a Flex option at best going forward, though a matchup against a bad Browns run defense could pay off this week.
