Jonathan Dwyer is probable for Week 3 against the Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer (toe) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Dwyer was held out of Wednesday practice with turf toe, but got in full sessions Thursday and Friday and will be ready to go this week. He has 71 yards on 21 carries this season.
Fantasy Impact: Dwyer had a poor Week 2 performance, but he's still the Steelers' safest fantasy bet at RB until Rashard Mendenhall comes back. Gun to my head, I wouldn't start him this week, but his pass-catching skills are good enough that you could give him a spin in PPR leagues if you're feeling lucky.
