2013 Fantasy Football Player Profile: Drafting Jonathan Dwyer a Waste of Time
Name: Jonathan Dwyer
Team: Pittsburgh Steelers
Position: Running Back
Years Pro: 3
Draft stock: (Dropping) Due to the fantasy football craze over Steelers rookie Le’Veon Bell, Dwyer is hardly getting much notoriety this offseason. Dwyer appears to be a NFL training camp cut as well, so no one is singing his praises as of now.
2012 fantasy impact: To be honest: Dwyer did his job for Pittsburgh in 2012. While his two touchdowns weren’t spectacular he still stepped up when the Steelers needed him most and amassed 623 rushing yards in just 13 games and three starts.
Best-case scenario: Dwyer outplays Isaac Redman in training camp and although Bell is the every-down back, Dwyer offers a few red-zone scores and is a consistent back up.
Worst-case scenario: Redman and Bell combine as the best 1-2 punch in Pittsburgh since Jerome Bettis and Willie Parker. Dwyer doesn’t even make it to Week 1 on the Steelers’ roster.
Where you should draft him: Given his competition, Dwyer isn’t a guy that you should have circled going into your draft. Instead, leave this third-string running back alone and if he’s available in the 15th then go ahead and pull the trigger.
