[*]Am a Mendy owner and I have Dwyer off the WW. I think this his his week to show that he is a bell cow. A division game against Cincy is what he needs.

He may be a decent flex option this week, but I wouldn't count on anything more than that.
I picked him up in a couple leagues, but don't plan on starting him in any. If anything, I'd count on a more pass-heavy gameplan, with good days from Roethlisberger, Wallace, Brown and Miller.

I think Ben ends up throwing 40+ this week probably.. Dwyer probably won't see more than 15 carries or so, and Batch will be in on passing downs. Even if he does well, his role will continue to be diminished if Mendenhall a/o Redman are healthy. They may try and utilize Rainey on a few plays as well. Interesting flex option considering 6 teams on bye, not much more. Steelers O-Line's banged up too, Gilbert's out, Pouncey's questionable.

He should get the goalline carries in a game that could have 30 points on each side. That alone warrants consideration.

I anticipate 50 yards on 14 carries and 1 TD...solid, but nothing spectacular.

That being said, he is in my flex spot over S.Chandler.

no way...the steelers don't run the same offense with haley as oc, they are more pass friendly now, 3rd/4th string rb isn't putting up much this weekend

I actually like him. I just don't expect Felix production which is why I'm stocking with Felix while Mathews and Charles are on bye

"Felix Production" is an oxymoron.

They brought Haley in specifically because they wanted to run the ball more. They felt Arians was too pass happy and the offense wasnt as effective and Ben was taking too much of a beating without the running game being part of the game plan.

Losing Decastro, who they think is a complete stud, for the season, not having Mendenhall, Pouncey and other linemen going down left and right has not allowed them to execute their plan.

They havent had success running the ball but I can assure you that its not because they want to be pass happy. They would love nothing better than to have a successful running game.

Someone earlier stated 50 and a TD for Dwyer? Thats a pretty reasonable expectation imho.

interesting flex option to you maybe, but with Bush and Matthews on a bye and Mendy and Don Brown out, he's my RB1 :lol:
