Jonathan Dwyer leads Steelers backfield, TD boosts fantasy value

Rob Carr

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer found the end zone on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer led the team's ground attack on Sunday. In Week 13, the Steelers faced off against the Baltimore Ravens, where Dwyer finished with 49 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.

The Steelers came up with a huge win over the Ravens, and it was truly a team effort. Dwyer's efforts only aided in the big victory on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis: Jonathan Dwyer was officially named the lead back by head coach Mike Tomlin a couple weeks ago. Since then, he's received the bulk of the work and has been productive. He has also solidified himself as the Steeler tailback most likely to punch it in the end zone.

In deeper leagues, Dwyer is a definite flex option. But beware, along the way the Steelers may have their struggles offensively.
