Jonathan Dwyer (Beast or Bust)

Brandon Bolden Week 4 by clicking here.
Tonight we analyze a player who will likely be a player many owners are going to contemplate dropping or keeping after his 122 Yard Rushing night. He was the best final second waiver wire addition you could hope for, and now he is a guy who could end up right back where you found him.
JONATHAN DWYER – RB – PIT
Dwyer came into this season as the clear #3 RB behind Isaac Redman. When Rashard Medenhall was returning from an ACL injury, Dwyer had a few audition games to show his value. In those games he looked like nothing more than a Free Agent RB who failed to reach over 60 Total Yards.
Then came Sunday Night where both Isaac Redman and Rashard Medenhall were listed as out. The Steelers gave Dwyer a heavy dose of carries throughout the game, including his closer role where he rushed for over 50 Yards just to kill the clock. While Chris Collinsworth for some reason compared him to Jerome Bettis, many of you will be disappointed if you read too much into it.
PREDICTION: BUST. Let us not forget that he is #3 on the depth chart. Even with Redman very questionable for next week, and Medenhall about 80% likely to play, you can expect Dwyer to slowly dwindle back to the bench. He is a predictable runner and it will take a good matchup and a lot of injuries for him to be worth anything. You can keep Dwyer on your roster for another week just to keep taps on Medenhall practicing, but more likely than not Dwyer will end up on all waiver wires by the time the season is over.
