Isaac Redman, Steelers Running Game Struggle Sunday: Fantasy Implications

OAKLAND, CA - SEPTEMBER 23: Isaac Redman #33 carries the ball looking to put a move on Rolando McClain #55 of the Oakland Raiders during the first quarter of an NFL football game at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on September 23, 2012 in Oakland, California.

Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer combined for just 26 yards rushing on 12 carries during Sunday's game between the Steelers and the Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Isaac Redman led the Pittsburgh Steelers in rushing Sunday, but that's not saying much, as he gained just 27 yards on nine carries against the Oakland Raiders. Jonathan Dwyer had three carries for minus-1 yard, and did not touch the ball again after losing a first-quarter fumble.

Fantasy Impact: It's clear that the Steelers aren't married to either Redman or Dwyer in the running game, considering both backs have carried the load at different times over the last three weeks. More and more, it seems as if Rashard Mendenhall will be the main ball carrier out of the backfield once he is healthy enough to return. With the Steelers on a bye in Week 4, tentatively pencil in Mendenhall to return in Week 5.
