Cardinals | Coach likes what he sees from Jonathan Dwyer

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 20:03:50 -0700

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."

Cardinals | Jonathan Dwyer endearing himself to coach

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 16:00:40 -0700

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.

Cardinals | Jonathan Dwyer signs

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 18:25:03 -0700

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.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell hopes to play

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 13:51:37 -0800

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.

Steelers | Big Ben unsure of Le'Veon Bell's return

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 11:23:16 -0700

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.

Steelers | Isaac Redman sinks to bottom of depth chart

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 12:45:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman, the team's Week 1 starter at running back, is now listed as fourth on the depth chart behind RBs Felix Jones, Le'Veon Bell (foot) and Jonathan Dwyer, in that order. Jones is the team's leading rusher with 71 yards and is averaging 4.2 yards per carry. Bell is expected to play in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, but they'll likely ease him back into the mix.

Fantasy Tip: With Pitt's bye week in Week 5, they won't want to put too much on the shoulders of Bell immediately. He's the best back to own in this backfield long term, but Jones is probably the better play against the Vikes.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell expected to play

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 09:49:07 -0700

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (foot) is expected to play in the team's Week 4 game in London against the Minnesota Vikings. Bell has progressed ahead of schedule from his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bell may not be 100 percent this weekend, but it looks like there's a good chance he'll be on the field. A combination of Felix Jones, Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman haven't gotten it done in three weeks. Dwyer looked solid last week, however, so he may split the carries with Bell this weekend.

Steelers | Jonathan Dwyer's role unclear

Thu, 12 Sep 2013 10:53:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer is unsure what his role will be heading into Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. "They told me to get ready and play," Dwyer said. "I don't know exactly what I'm doing. I'm just getting myself ready to play." The Steelers finished with only 32 total rushing yards in Week 1, the second lowest around the league, and RB Isaac Redman fumbled twice and had only eight carries for nine yards.

Fantasy Tip: Redman has already been named the starter for Week 2, but that could change depending on how he fares early on. Dwyer is comfortable with the team and led them in rushing last year, so it's conceivable that he could become fantasy-relevant in a hurry with Le'Veon Bell (foot) out another month. Felix Jones hasn't been a quick study of the offense. Get Dwyer on the cheap if you're speculating and are in need of RB depth.
