Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman will start on Sunday against the Denver Broncos, according to Josina Anderson of ESPN. Redman is part of a crowded Pittsburgh backfield that also includes Chris Rainey and Jonathan Dwyer, who could both see touches in Week 1. Redman has also been dealing with a hip injury.
Fantasy Impact: Redman is not a great play in fantasy football, even as a starter. The backfield is crowded and he wasn't incredibly effective in the preseason. He should be considered a No. 3 running back or a flex option for fantasy owners looking to fill those spots.
