Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer has been deactivated from all team activities Wednesday, Sept. 17. The team was made aware of allegations by the Phoenix police and are cooperating fully with authorities. The team plans to closely monitor the situation as it develops and evaluate additional information as it becomes available.
Huddle Up: Stepfan Taylor will take over as Arizona's No. 2 back for now. He has some fantasy upside considering Andre Ellington is playing through a foot injury. Ellington owners in 12-14 team leagues should add Taylor as insurance.

Arizona Cardinals RBs Jonathan Dwyer and Stepfan Taylor will both be used to spell RB Andre Ellington this season, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss.
Huddle Up: With the 5-10, 195-pound Ellington not built to carry a full-size workload, it's looking like a three-headed RBBC in the desert. Ugh.

Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer received praise from head coach Bruce Arians during organized team activities for his pass-catching abilities. Dwyer also is effective in pass blocking, which is something that Arians covets in his offense.
Huddle Up: Dwyer only had 27 receptions in 4 seasons in Pittsburgh, but his pass-blocking prowess could earn him some extra offensive snaps in the desert if second-year backs Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor struggle with protection.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said RB Jonathan Dwyer may see more playing time. Tomlin said that Dwyer has also been a spark plug on special teams.
Huddle Up: Dwyer only has 18 total touches since rookie Le'Veon Bell made his debut in Week 6, and while he doesn't have any fantasy value now, he'll be the main man in the Steel City should Bell go down again.
