RB Isaac Redman Expected To Play Saturday: Fantasy Implications

Steelers RB Isaac Redman hopes to get some solid playing time in on Saturday. We break down the fantasy implications.


Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman is expected to get significant playing time in Saturday's game against the Bills, reports ESPN's Jamison Hensley. After struggling through most of camp with hip and groin injuries, Redman had three pain-free days of practice and is feeling much better about his prognosis. "I wasn't sure how my body would react, but I don't feel anything (painful) right now. I kind of feel like I never really injured it."

Analysis: It's good that he's not feeling as much pain and should finally play on Saturday, but you should still avoid Pittsburgh's running back situation for now. Redman's days as a starter are numbered, with Rashard Mendenhall coming off the PUP much earlier than expected, and neither he nor 3rd-stringer Jonathan Dwyer can be counted on to stay healthy. If you must have a Steeler RB this year, pick up Mendenhall off the waiver wire in October. Don't waste any draft picks here.
