Isaac Redman is officially listed as probable on the Pittsburgh Steelers injury report and will play on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

Isaac Redman is officially listed as probable on the Pittsburgh Steelers injury report and will play on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos. Redman was in line for a substantial workload entering the offseason, but his ankle injury, Jonathan Dwyer's impressive play and Rashard Mendenhall's speedy recovery have put his role in question. He is still Pittsburgh's likely starter on Sunday night. Mendenhall is listed as doubtful for the Steelers' opening game.

Fantasy Impact: Isaac Redman has lost nearly all of his fantasy value in a now-crowded Pittsburgh backfield. The Steelers added Chris Rainey in the 2012 NFL Draft to get some time on third downs, and Jonathan Dwyer has outperformed Redman throughout the summer. Redman may start against the Broncos, but he will not be the team's most effective running back.
