Description: The Steelers have parted ways with running back Isaac Redman.
Insight: Redman began the year as the starter but inconsistency quickly landed him on the bench. Le'Veon Bell has since taken over as the starter with Felix Jones getting some work in on third downs. Redman could make sense for the Buccaneers with Doug Martin likely out for the season (torn labrum).
 
9/16/2013 10:53:00 PM
Description: Steelers tailback Isaac Redman has re-entered the game. He left briefly after suffering an injury on the opening kickoff.
Insight: It looked like he may have a concussion but apparently everything checked out okay. Redman should be fine going forward.
 
9/16/2013 9:27:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh halfback Isaac Redman went to the locker room for concussion tests after taking a hard hit on the opening kickoff Monday against the Bengals.
Insight: His return is questionable. While he's out, Felix Jones will fill in at running back.
 
9/10/2013 5:12:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman will start Monday against the Bengals despite his terrible performance in Week 1, according to ESPN.com.
Insight: Redman fumbled twice and only had nine yards on eight carries Sunday against the Titans. Time and time again, he has failed to impress when he gets an opportunity, so we don't expect much Monday. Le'Veon Bell (foot) will eventually return to the starting job.
 
9/8/2013 6:34:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman accounted for just 16 yards from scrimmage on 10 touches Sunday.
Insight: Redman had eight carries for nine yards and two catches for seven. The running back failed to impress as a starter last season so we shouldn't expect him to break out now. Le'Veon Bell could be back as soon as Week 2 from his foot injury.
 
9/3/2013 10:25:00 AM
Description: Contrary to some earlier reports, Steelers running back Isaac Redman will be the starter while Le'Veon Bell (foot) is out, not the newly-acquired Felix Jones, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Bouchette is usually plugged in to what's going on with the Steelers. Redman rushed for 410 yards and two touchdowns on 110 carries (3.7 ypc) and started in last year's opener when Rashard Mendenhall went down with a knee injury.
 
8/27/2013 5:23:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman will be the starter while Le'Veon Bell (foot) is out, according to Dale Lolley of observer-reporter.com.
Insight: Redman remains ahead of Jonathan Dwyer, LaRod Stephens-Howling and Felix Jones on the depth chart, but he doesn't have much fantasy appeal during the 3-4 weeks Bell is likely to miss. In 14 games last season (five starts), Redman rushed for 410 yards and two touchdowns on 110 carries (3.7 ypc).
 
11/20/2012 12:39:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman suffered a concussion Sunday against Baltimore and is questionable for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: The Steelers have Jonathan Dwyer and Rashard Mendenhall so the loss of Redman wouldn't be a huge factor to the team and would make figuring out who to start in your fantasy lineup 33 percent easier.
 
11/19/2012 10:13:00 AM
Description: Steelers halfback Isaac Redman suffered a concussion Sunday against Baltimore and did not return to action.
Insight: That left the backfield to Rashard Mendenhall (11 carries, 33 yards) and Jonathan Dwyer (12 carries, 55 yards). The Pittsburgh running back situation is as foggy as ever with Redman's status now in question. Fantasy owners who are in a bind should look elsewhere for their backfield needs.
 
11/16/2012 1:58:00 PM
Description: With the news that Rashard Mendenhall will start in Week 11 versus Baltimore, both Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer will return to their backup role.
Insight: All three backs have proven they are capable of carrying the workload if given the chance, but it appears Mendenhall will start with Dwyer as the first backup. Under those conditions, Redman has little-to-no fantasy value.
 
11/10/2012 3:31:00 PM
Description: Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has announced that Isaac Redman will get the start at running back Monday night against Kansas City.
Insight: The other option was Jonathan Dwyer, who had posted back-to-back 100-yard games before missing last week's game against New York because of a quad injury. Rashard Mendenhall is still struggling with an Achilles injury and is unlikely to play on Monday night.
 
11/8/2012 8:09:00 PM
Description: The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review suggests that Isaac Redman will get the start at running back Monday night against the Chiefs.
Insight: Redman is coming off a great game against the Giants (147 yards, TD) but so is Jonathan Dwyer (107 yards Week 8 against the Redskins). Even if Redman earns the starter label, we're expecting the Steelers' rushing workload to be close to a 50/50 split.
 
11/6/2012 4:26:00 PM
Description: According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that the running back who "gets the totes" will be the one running well at the time.
Insight: Jonathan Dwyer is expected to return from a quad injury this week and Rashard Mendenhall will be questionable. Don't expect Isaac Redman to carry the ball 26 times again against the Chiefs Monday.
 
11/5/2012 10:48:00 AM
Description: Pittsburgh halfback Isaac Redman had his best game of the season Sunday against the Giants.
Insight: With Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer both on the sidelines with injuries, Redman was able to explode for 147 yards on 26 carries. His go-ahead touchdown with four minutes remaining gave the Steelers their fifth win of the season.
 
11/4/2012 3:29:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman (ankle) has participated in practice this week and will get the start over injured backs Jonathan Dwyer and Rashard Mendenhall.
Insight: Redman had 105 yards receiving in his last game, but he's only rushed for 127 yards on 50 carries (2.5 ypc) all season.
 
11/2/2012 1:36:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman (ankle) has participated in practice all week. With Jonathan Dwyer missing Friday's practice and Rashard Mendehall expected to miss the Week 9, Redman could get the majority of this weekend's workload.
Insight: Redman had 105 yards receiving in his last game but he's only rushed for 127 yards on 50 carries (2.5 ypc) all season. He did run for 121 yards in a playoff game last January, so he certainly has the ability to produce.
 
10/25/2012 3:36:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman (ankle) turned in a limited practice session Thursday while Rashard Mendenhall sat out again.
Insight: Redman had 105 yards receiving in his last game but he's only rushed for 127 yards on 50 carries (2.5 ypc) this season. Jonathan Dwyer ran for 122 on 17 carries against the Bengals in Week 7 so even if Mendenhall remains out Dwyer will likely play over Redman.
 
10/19/2012 2:30:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman (ankle) has not practiced all week and will not be able to take advantage of Rashard Mendenhall's absence (Achilles).
Insight: Jonathan Dwyer should get the start and is a decent play against the Bengals on Sunday night, but the Steelers figure to throw more often than normal. Baron Batch will be his backup.
 
10/11/2012 11:12:00 PM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman left Thursday's game against the Titans with a knee injury.
Insight: Redman took a helmet to the knee and is questionable to return. The running back had 14 yards on five carries and 105 yards on four catches prior to exiting. Rashard Mendenhall also left the game and Jonathan Dwyer was inactive so the Steelers are going to have to rely on Baron Batch and Chris Rainey.
 
9/25/2012 11:05:00 AM
Description: Steelers running back Isaac Redman could fade into fantasy non-factor status after Pittsburgh returns from their bye week as Rashard Mendenhall is expected to return to the lineup.
Insight: Redman and Jonathan Dwyer have done little to warrant our attention in Mendenhall's absence over the first three weeks. Neither has been able to hit double-digit fantasy points over the first three weeks of the season.
