    I know Redman is far from a fantasy stud. CJ is a much better player in general. Here's my quandary...Steelers run defense is always solid. Our run defense was atrocious last year. I'm thinking about starting Redman over CJ for that reason. What do you guys think?

    I do not think the Steelers current front 7 stands up well to our new OL.

    Start Johnson. The Steelers defense isn't what it once was and we have an OL full of studs. Plus Johnson on needs on long run in order to make him worth it over Issac Redman.

    I'll make this easy for you.

    As a starter Redman averages only 48-yards per game to CJ's 78-yards per game last year. Also; CJ had nearly 100-yards vs the Steelers last year.

    The Steelers should be splitting carries pretty evenly between Redman, Jones, and Stephens-Howling.

    I wouldn't dare start a single one of those bums at any point this season - unless one emerges and gets all the carries.

    This wouldn't be much of a choice for me. Sure you can argue Redman has the better matchup. But CJ is just SUCH a superior player. If you bench CJ and he goes off you'll be kicking yourself all week. If you start CJ and he doesn't do much, at least you know you started the best player.

    Dude, you drafted CJ highly for a reason. Isaac Redman was the third option in Pittsburgh before Bell got hurt and Dwyer got cut. Don't be stupid.

    Starting Redman over CJ would be dumb
