Rashard Medenhall has been suspended for one game by the Pittsburgh Steelers for conduct detrimental to the team, according to Adam Caplan of Sirius Radio. Meandenhall was already expected to be inactive. He has been a healthy scratch for the last two weeks.
Mendenhall is deep in head coach Mike Tomlin's doghouse at the moment. On Tuesday, Tomlin essentially reaffirmed that Mendenhall would have been a healthy scratch for Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Fantasy Impact: It's unclear whether we will see ever see Mendenhall again in a Steelers uniform. As a result, Jonathan Dwyer has to be considered the unquestioned starter out of the offensive backfield. Isaac Redman and Chris Rainey are expected to see touches as well, capping Dwyer's fantasy value somewhat. Dwyer will likely see goal-line touches, however, making him worth Flex consideration on a weekly basis.
