Steelers | Jonathan Dwyer to see increased role

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer is expected to receive increased playing time during Week 2 against the New York Jets after being the team's only effective back during Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. Head coach Mike Tomlin said Dwyer has earned "increased opportunity" because of his Week 1 effort. As a team, the Steelers ran 26 times for 75 yards, a 2.9-yard average. Dwyer toted the ball nine times for 43 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Dwyer's increased playing time will likely come at the expense of Isaac Redman, who failed to impress during Week 1 when he rushed 11 times for 20 yards. Consider this situation fluid at this time. Due to a likely time share and poor play of the offensive line, it's better to take a wait-and-see approach than it is to count on either back in your lineup.
