Jonathan Dwyer likely to get more carries in Week 2

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - [Full Article]

Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer will get more carries Sunday against the Jets, although I don’t think he will start. And, naturally, if Isaac Redman plays well, that could change based on his performance early-on.

“I thought Jonathan Dwyer provided a spark play and represented himself well and will probably get an increased opportunity because of it,’’ HC Mike Tomlin said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Dwyer saw fewer touches (11) against the Broncos and turned them into more yards (54 yards) than did Isaac Redman (13 touches, 27 yards). He simply ran harder and was more effective than Redman. The Steelers play the Jets, who had trouble containing C.J. Spiller for most of the game. Dwyer may not start, but he could be a sneaky flex start.
