Mon, 09 Sep 2013 05:15:17 -0700
The Pittsburgh Steelers will re-sign RB Jonathan Dwyer.
Fantasy Tip: He's worth a speculative add. Isaac Redman fumbled and didn't do much in Week 1. Felix Jones didn't see a carry, and LaRod Stephens-Howling (knee) is out for the season. Dwyer could step right in and have a prominent role.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 22:31:06 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB LaRod Stephens-Howling (knee) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees.

Wed, 04 Sep 2013 15:12:20 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Felix Jones and LaRod Stephens-Howling likely will receive playing time Week 1 even though RB Isaac Redman will start the game. Stephens-Howling is expected to be the third-down back, while Jones likely will receive time when Redman needs a break.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 06:52:48 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB LaRod Stephens-Howling will handle kick returns, and WRs Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton will return punts.
Tue, 03 Sep 2013 13:06:13 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman will start at running back for the team in Week 1, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. "We know what Isaac is capable of. He's answered the bell for us in the past," Tomlin said at his weekly news conference. "We expect him to do it in a big way moving forward."
Fantasy Tip: While Redman will get the start, it is likely that the Steelers will still give Felix Jones and LaRod Stephens-Howling carries at times. While there is something to be said for any starting running back having value, this one still has a lot of uncertainty around it.
Mon, 02 Sep 2013 11:23:00 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman said he expects to start while RB Le'Veon Bell (foot) is out of the lineup. Redman said the coaches do not want to use a committee at running back, and he does not want to give them a reason to use a committee.
Fantasy Tip: If Redman does get the start, he will still have to share some carries with Felix Jones and LaRod Stephens-Howling. Redman probably would be a flex option if he is the team's starting running back.
Mon, 02 Sep 2013 05:49:49 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Felix Jones is expected to start Week 1. He likely vaulted ahead of RBs Isaac Redman and LaRod Stephens-Howling with 14 carries for 56 yards in the final preseason game.
Fantasy Tip: Here's another interesting twist in the Pittsburgh camp. If Jones lands the starting gig, he'd make for an RB3 until Le'Veon Bell (foot) returns. The zone-blocking scheme could serve him well, and who knows? Maybe this late bloomer could take off.
Sun, 01 Sep 2013 09:32:56 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Isaac Redman, Felix Jones and LaRod Stephens-Howling are expected to share playing time until RB Le'Veon Bell (foot) is able to recover from his foot injury.
Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:45:57 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman is expected to start while RB Le'Veon Bell (foot) recovers from his foot injury. RBs Jonathan Dwyer and LaRod Stephens-Howling will serve as the backups.
Fantasy Tip: Redman has some low-end RB2 or flex fantasy appeal if he does indeed start in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans, who ranked dead-last in the NFL against the rush last season by allowing 178.0 yards per game.
Fri, 23 Aug 2013 13:47:38 -0700

Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team went with RB LaRod Stephens-Howling in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings because he had the hot hand over RB William Powell. "I always think that he's going to be a part of it. We went in planning to have a rotation like we normally do, but LaRod had the hot hand. We had a good running plan, felt like it was going to be able to get some runs in there. … He had a nice day and it was good for us that he was able to run the ball that way."

Fri, 12 Oct 2012 18:52:25 -0700
Arizona Cardinals RB LaRod Stephens-Howling is ready for a big role in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills with RB Beanie Wells (toe) and RB Ryan Williams (shouder) out of action.
Fantasy Tip: The shifty Stephens-Howling faces a favorable matchup against a Bills defense which has been lit up the past two weeks. In his last NFL start in Week 17 in 2011, Stephens-Howling posted 93 yards on 16 carries. Still, he is not more than a low-end RB2 or 'flex' play in leagues of 12 or more teams.
Fri, 12 Oct 2012 14:02:25 -0700

Mon, 08 Oct 2012 14:23:08 -0700
The Arizona Cardinals do not believe RB LaRod Stephens-Howling can be an every-down running back that can carry the ball the 15 times per game but will be giving him more carries because of the injuries to RBs Beanie Wells (toe) and RB Ryan Williams (shoulder). Stephens-Howling has missed the last two games with a hip flexor injury, but there is a good chance that he will be able to play in Week 6.
