2013 Outlook:Last updated on Sep-01-2013 by Rob Warner
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.
The 6th round pick in the 2010 draft out of Georgia Tech has battled injuries during his 3 year career (played in just 21 games); when injuries allowed him to gain a few 2nd half starts, he failed to impress averaging just 3.3 YPC on 98 carries over the final eight games. At 5'11, 229 he does have the potential to emerge as a red zone threat if Bell were to struggle in short yardage, but his lack of receiving skills should keep Dwyer on fantasy waiver wires barring a rash of injuries to the Steeler backfield.

|19.07||FFToolbox - Cindie Crain - I am not sure if the rookie Leveon Bell will carry the full load at RB in Pittsburgh. Jonathan Dwyer is very familiar with the offense and he will most likely share the carries with Bell.|

|16.10||Gridiron Experts - Not much left out there, so I'm just taking a back-up running back that might play a little on third downs or put up a decent game or two should he become the starter. Dwyer has very limited upside, even as a starter.|
