Jonathan Dwyer is probable for Week 2 against the Jets. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer (foot) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. Dwyer sat out Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed foot injury, but was a full participant in Thursday and Friday, and should be ready to go this week.

Fantasy Impact: The Steelers have been talking up Dwyer possibly getting an expanded role in the offense after leading the team in rushing yards last week, so don't expect this minor injury to change that. With Rashard Mendenhall doubtful for Sunday and Isaac Redman impressing nobody against the Broncos, he's still the best fantasy option in Pittsburgh's backfield.
