Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington tops the team's first depth chart of the preseason, with RBs Jalen Parmelee and Stepfan Taylor listed on the second-team offense. RBs Jonathan Dwyer and Zach Bauman are listed on the third-team offense, with RBs Robert Hughes and Damian Thigpen on the fourth team.
Fantasy Tip: The battle between Dwyer and Taylor is expected to be one of the more hotly contested in Arizona's camp. The winner of the battle (and don't count out Parmelee either!) will have some fantasy appeal as an RB3 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams, while the lose of the battle will only be worth a flier as a reserve in the final rounds on draft day.

Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor worked with the first-team offense in place of RB Andre Ellington (neck) Tuesday, July 29. Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com believes the move means that Taylor is ahead of RB Jonathan Dwyer in the battle for the No. 2 RB job.
Fantasy Tip: Should Ellington go down with an injury during the year or prove unable to handle the bulk of the carries, it looks like Taylor could be the back to grab. Keep his name in mind heading into the season.

Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor and RB Jonathan Dwyer will both be used to spell RB Andre Ellington this season, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss.
Fantasy Tip: Unless Taylor or Dwyer can separate and become the clear No. 2 back, it is going to be tough to know which player is worth owning as a potential handcuff to Ellington.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he has been impressed with how RB Jonathan Dwyer looked during offseason workouts. "He's in better shape and he's running routes and catching the ball better than I remember," Arians said. "I know he'll pound you and can really run the football. I know he can pass block. But he caught the ball extremely well. He made some catches in the red zone for us. That was a surprise."

Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer received praise from head coach Bruce Arians during organized team activities for his pass-catching abilities. Dwyer also is effective in pass blocking, which is something that Arians covets in his offense.
Fantasy Tip: Stepfan Taylor is expected to be the main complementary back to Andre Ellington in 'Zona's backfield this year, but Dwyer could gain more traction if he continues to display the qualities that Arians likes. Dwyer would be more valuable in PPR leagues, but for now, he's undraftable.

The Arizona Cardinals have signed unrestricted free-agent RB Jonathan Dwyer (Steelers) to a one-year contract. The contract's financial terms were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Dwyer could have mild fantasy value, depending on how he is worked into a backfield that is full of young but largely unproven talent. He knows the system and could play a mentor role rather than making much of an on-field impact.

The Pittsburgh Steelers may look to re-sign impending free-agent RBs Jonathan Dwyer and LaRod Stephens-Howling this offseason.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) did some running Monday, Dec. 2, and is hoping to play in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins after suffering a concussion in the team's Week 13 contest. "I'm going to take it day by day and see where we're at," Bell said. "The goal is obviously to play but if (I'm) not able to I'm not able to." Bell doesn't remember the hit but hasn't had many lingering effects from the violent collision. He took an ImPACT test Sunday, Dec. 1, and will have to pass more concussion tests before being cleared.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Bell will have over a full week to recover from his ugly concussion. It will all depend on whether he passes the concussion tests this week. The fact that he's already running is a good sign, though. Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer will split the duties in the backfield if Bell isn't cleared. If Bell plays, he should be in your lineups against the Miami Dolphins. Jones and Dwyer are desperation flex plays.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said RB Jonathan Dwyer may see more playing time. Tomlin said that Dwyer has also been a spark plug on special teams.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (foot) is expected to make his season debut against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4, but QB Ben Roethlisberger isn't so sure of that. "Honestly, I have no idea with him," Roethlisberger said. "You can't get a read on him. One day, he's practicing, one day, he's not; one day, he's going hard, the next day, he's not. I wish I could." Bell was banged up in the preseason and only rushed four times for nine yards.
Fantasy Tip: Mike Tomlin continues to say that how much Bell plays on Sunday will depend on how he looks in practice this week. Stay updated on Bell's practice status, but we get the feeling that he'll be eased in against the Vikings before the team's Week 5 bye. It'd be unwise to rely on him this week. Felix Jones or Jonathan Dwyer are better options.
