Pittsburgh Steelers running back Felix Jones was the leading rusher in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. The Steelers running game continues to be terrible and fantasy owners should take note. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Felix Jones got the start on Monday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals but rushed for 37 yards on 10 carries. Once again the Steelers failed to score on the ground and struggled running the ball consistently. The Steelers only rushed 16 times Monday night and have 75 total rushing yards going into Week 3.

Fantasy impact: The Steelers offense is just plain bad right now there is no other way to spin it. Jones got the majority of the carries in the run game but the Steelers offense struggled to run the ball or produce consistently. The Steelers ran the ball 16 times and only produced 44 yards. None of the Steelers running backs are fantasy options right now and likely won't be unless rookie Le'Veon Bell can come back from his foot injury and make an impact. The Steelers host the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.
