Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Isaac Redman and LaRod Stephens-Howling combined for 14 carries for just 27 yards in Week 1. Redman had eight carries for 9 yards.
Huddle Up: The Steelers are expected to re-sign Jonathan Dwyer this week, but with Maurkice Pouncey out for the year it may not matter who carries the ball for Pittsburgh--and that includes Le'Veon Bell once he returns.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB LaRod Stephens-Howling will handle kick returns, and WRs Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton will return punts.
Huddle Up: LSH is one of the better special teams players in the league and should give the Pittsburgh return game a boost, while Brown and Wheaton will see a fantasy value-add in leagues where their punt return yardage counts towards the fantasy bottom line.

The Pittsburgh Steelers added RB LaRod Stephens-Howling to primarily be a kick returner, but he could also see playng time on third downs. He may have to compete with RB Baron Batch for a roster spot during training camp.
Huddle Up: The Steelers like Le'Veon Bell as an every-down back and have Isaac Redman as a potential third-down back as well. If Stephens-Howling's roster spot is dependent on his special teams contributions he should be in good shape, but it's tough to see him bringing much fantasy value beyond his return duties.
