Isaac Redman is Steelers' starting RB
Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports that, as expected, the Steelers will turn to running back Isaac Redman to start for as long as Le'Veon Bell is missing games due to his sprained foot. However, Redman will be sharing carries with Jonathan Dwyer , LaRod Stephens-Howling and Felix Jones .
However, Redman won't play Thursday and will end up missing Pittsburgh's final two preseason games because of a stinger. Despite his new job title, Redman should not be a sought-after choice in fantasy drafts. He will be joined in the backfield by at least two of those running backs listed above. He is a low-end flex option at best. The hope is Bell can return at some point in October. If you have yet to draft, you should do what you can to avoid this running game.
