With Dwyer getting the surprising boot from Pittsburgh, guess that means Redman is the guy for now. I'm sure we'll see a little of Felix Jones as well. Seems baffling to me on why the Steelers let Dwyer go but I wouldn't be shocked to see him reunite in Arizona after Ryan Williams gets injured.Ahmad is listed as questionable for now and we think Ballard will still get a significant amount of playing time.

Redman is next in line if Bell does not do the job he is supposed to do. Redman has proved that can be a capable RB#3 if he gets the job, with RB#2 upside. For now forget about drafting Redman, but watch to make sure Bell is legit in the preseason before the Steelers go all in on the Rookie.Vick 'The Brick' Ballard will be the change-of-pace RB to Bradshaw, and that is best case scenario. Luckily for Ballard, Bradshaw is not the type of RB who makes it through a season healthy. Ever. And coming into 2013 with Bradshaw at less than 100%, you already know Ballard will get his Fantasy RB#2 chances.

 Bradshaw will play, but could be limited. The Raiders are soft on the run. There is some room for Ballard to work this week.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He's the starter with a good matchup. That has to count for something, right?   
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
 Ballard is pretty average, but seems like the most likely Colts back to pick up the scraps left behind by Ahmad Bradshaw.
