Isaac Redman, RB, N/A

2013 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Oct-22-2013 by Rob Warner
Update (10/22): The Steelers released Redman who had just 11 carries for 13 yards this season and was a healthy scratch since Week 4. Felix Jones and Jon Dwyer will serve as the primary backups behind Le'Veon Bell.
Update (9/1): RB Jonathan Dwyer has been released from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Apparently, the coaching staff feels that the trio of Redman, Stevens-Howling and newly acquired Felix Jones better suit their offensive stretch ground attack. Felix Jones is the interesting name to watch here. He looked decent in the limited work we saw in the preseason and has a chance to surprise.
Update (8-21): Projected starter Le'Veon Bell has been diagnosed with a Lisfranc type mid-foot injury. Though the Steelers are seeking a second opinion, the rookie could miss several weeks regardless. That moves Redman into the No. 1 RB spot, though Jonathan Dwyer could also receive additional carries. Redman has proven little in past opportunities, but a starter is a starter. Check our rankings page for updates, but this Steelers backfield is one to avoid.
PROFILE: The 28-year-old RB from Bowie State is currently listed as the No. RB on the depth chart, but his upside is limited as he's posted just 5 rushing TDs over the past three seasons and finished the 2012 season with a pedestrian 3.7 YPC on 110 carries. Redman has yet to top 110 carries or 500 yards in any one season and remains a handcuff at best in a crowded Steeler backfield. He could be worth a late round flier in PPR leagues after totaling 37 catches in limited action the past two seasons.

|18.02||FFToolbox - Rob Warner - Rookie Le'Veon Bell (Michigan State) is expected to start but Redman is reportedly ahead of Dwyer on the depth chart making he decent late round target / handcuff to own. He's averaged 19 catches over the past 2 seasons but has just 5 career TDs in 4 seasons.|
