Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer probable; RB Rashard Mendenhall doubtful


Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer probable; RB Rashard Mendenhall doubtful

Just as Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer @JDwyer27 was seemingly in line to see an uptick in carries after his Week 1 performance, he missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury. But no need to worry; Dwyer put in full practices on Thursday and Friday and is listed as probable on the injury report.
It's a different story with running back Rashard Mendenhall @R_Mendenhall. He is listed as doubtful to play against the Jets because of his surgically repaired knee.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Steelers keep stating that Mendenhall is practicing fully, but that's obviously not the case; that's just the team fooling with the practice reports. He'll miss another game, but Dwyer is a decent RB2 against a Jets defense that couldn't stop the Bills' running game last week. Plus, he should get 17-20 touches. He has clearly surpassed Isaac Redman @ired33 on the team's RB hierarchy.
