Rising: Pittsburgh Running Backs

The Steelers were so enamored with their running backs (Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman) last year that they went out and made LeVeon Bell the second running back selected in the 2013 NFL Draft by taking him in the second round. With Bell’s regular season opener status unknown, the Steelers were again so enamored with Dwyer and Redman that they went out and traded for journeyman Felix Jones. Each of these player's ADP is bound to rise with Bell in danger of missing at least one game, but which one is worth drafting?

I’d have to land in the “none” camp on this one. Redman shouldn’t really be asked to do anything more than be a third-down back, Dwyer is more of a plodder, and Jones has broken fantasy owners’ hearts too many time. If I had to take one it would probably be Dwyer as late as possible, but there’s still a possibility that Bell plays in the season opener so I think it’s best to stay away.
