For the Steelers, Jonathan Dwyer may be someone you should pick up and possibly start. Some may argue that the Steelers offense looked horrible, as did the running game. Many believed cutting Dwyer was a mistake, and apparently so. The Steelers will run the ball because of the pressure that needs to be lifted off the passing game, so Dwyer could receive many touches. Don’t forget, Dwyer had over 100 yards against the Bengals last year during a prime time game, so this could be a sleeper pick.
While Jermaine Gresham is a hot target to Andy Dalton, he should probably sit this week. While it appears he is poised for another good year, and possibly his best, this week is not a good matchup for him. The linebackers and safety position on the Steelers defense are still going strong and will cause problems in the middle of the field. Don’t start Gresham unless you have no choice in doing so.
