Fantasy Outlook 2010

Dwyer was drafted in the 6th round by the Steelers after many teams took him off their draft boards due to a pre-existing medical condition that remains undisclosed.  However, the Steelers felt confident enough to take him late and they shouldn’t regret it.  Right away, Dwyer is a threat to challenge for the No. 2 running back slot with Mewelde Moore.  Rashard Mendenhall is a lock to be the featured back, but Dwyer, with his big frame, could see a lot of time near the goal-line.  We also don’t anticipate his lack of experience with a pro-style offense to be too much of an issue.


~ Offense Tackle Willie Colon is lost for the season, weakening the offensive line, which puts more pressure on the run game


~ Mendenhall has a history of injuries, so Dwyer could see more time than most No. 2 rookie backs as the Steelers look to preserve him


~ Roethlisberger is gone for the first four to six games, so there will be a lot of emphasis on the run game, meaning Dwyer will be used to spell Mendenhall often

His Game

The 6’1”, 235-pound back is an absolute beast who will run over anything that weighs less than the Pyramids of Giza.  He rushed 235 times for just under 1,400 yards and scored 14 touchdowns last year.  He rushed for over 100 yards in seven of those games and was definitely a factor near the red zone.  These are amazing numbers, especially given the fact that he was essentially one out of three main “running backs” in the triple option offense.  Imagine what he could’ve done if he was the main man...

The Yellow Jacket

No, that is not a prize won for winning a golf contest (The Masters=Green Jacket and Happy Gilmore=Gold Jacket).  It's actually the nickname of Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer.  Dwyer didn’t get as much attention or respect as conference foe C.J. Spiller or Heisman Winner Mark Ingram because he ran out of the old-fashioned triple-option offense.  For those of you who weren’t alive 60 years ago and didn’t watch too much of Georgia Tech the last few years, take a look at some of the YouTube vids on this page because it really is a thing of beauty.


Basically, there is no passing in this offense, so you would think it’s easy to stop.  Wrong.  As the name states, there are usually three options to a play, so the defense has to prepare for three different scenarios.  Dwyer didn’t get a whole lot of credit because this is not a usual scheme these days, so it’s tough to judge how he would’ve done in a normal role.  But given what we have, he’s a monster.

Injury Report

Green

Dwyer has been using amphetamines since he was a child to combat his ADD, which is likely why teams stayed away from him in the draft. Otherwise, the big man looks good to go

arrested for domestic violence

Johnathan Dwyer has been arrested for aggravated assault, and preventing a call to 911. This incident occurred awhile ago, but his wife saved records from her injuries. Dwyer has rushed for 51 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries over two games this season.

Pyro's take: Its good to see people step forward, and more and more should follow step. Most people are afraid to bring out their cases, but when they feel safe, it becomes more prevelent. I would not be surprised that Dwyer is the only case, there will be more.

He will not be playing this Sunday or probably for the rest of the season. The Cardinals will not follow the path of Ray Rice or Adrian Peterson.

Stepfan Taylor will take over the Dwyer role, while Robert Hughes will spell.

Dwyer signs one-year deal with Arizona

The Arizona Cardinals have signed RB Jonathan Dwyer to a one-year contract worth $795,000. The deal included a $65,000 signing bonus, but no guaranteed money beyond that.

Pyro's take: Just days after one former Pittsburgh Steelers running back retires, the Cardinals go out and grab themselves another one in Dwyer.

I don't know if the bulky 24-year-old is really any better than Mendenhall was before his recent retirement, but at least he's a couple of years younger. His potential is a little higher, as he is basically a healthier version of Mendy at this point.

Still, there's a reason he was Mendy's backup when they played together in Pittsburgh, and he'll remain a backup now that he's in Arizona.

As for the fantasy effects of the signing, RB Andre Ellington's stock actually goes up due to Dwyer posing no real threat to his touches and/or starting job.

Jonathan Dwyer cut by Steelers

The Steelers have released 2012 leading rusher Jonathan Dwyer, according to the team's web site.

Dwyer was a hot-and-cold runner in Pittsburgh over the last two seasons. A 6th round pick in 2010, Dwyer had weight issues earlier in his career but eventually showed he was capable of running in the NFL.

It just didn't happen all the time. He seemed to struggle with his vision in reading blocks and creases, but had shown he might be able to improve.

Apparently, it wasn't enough. The Steelers released him, presumably in favor of Isaac Redman and recently acquired Felix Jones - both of whom made the team.

Pyro's take: Dwyer just never really impressed the Steelers, or fantasy owners, and his release could mean that the Steelers expect Le'Veon Bell to be back sooner than later. It also means that Dwyer was not able to out perform Felix Jones or Issac Redman, both of whom are forgotten men in fantasy. If you have room on your bench it looks safer and safer to take a chance on Le'Veon Bell.
