Despite a strong preseason from Jonathan Dwyer and rumors that Rashard Mendenhall may suit up, it is Issac Redman who will start the game in the Steelers backfield.
This figures to be a blurry picture on a weekly basis, but for this week, Redman is the only Steeler back worth starting. He is a fringe top 20-25 RB this week, but I do like to be the most productive RB in this game. He should be considered a better fantasy option than players like Shonn Greene and both running backs in Washington.
The Steelers have a reputation of sticking to the run, meaning Redman could see upwards of 20-25 touches and solid yardage totals. The Broncos ranked in the bottom third of the NFL when it comes to stopping the run, another reason to plug Redman in at your flex spot.
