Jonathan Dwyer ends season with mediocre fantasy performance

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer ended his season with another lackluster performance. We break down the fantasy impact.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer had a pedestrian performance in the Steelers 24-10 Week 17 win over the Cleveland Browns. Dwyer ran well, but didn't run often, with 11 carries for 52 yards and one reception for nine yards.

Dwyer ended the season as the Steelers starting running back, but only ran for 623 yards and two touchdowns on the year.

Fantasy Impact: None of the Steelers running backs had strong fantasy seasons with Dwyer, Isaac Redman, and Rashard Mendenhall all seeing time as the featured back in Pittsburgh.

The real question is will Dwyer return as the Steelers featured back next season and will all three RBs be kept? Dwyer is the youngest of the three and showed promise at points during the year, so his stock may rise next year with a full season as the No. 1 running back.
