Running back Isaac Redman is expected to start Sunday for the Pittsburgh Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

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.
