Found September 09, 2013 on Rotowire:
It's amazing how much I missed football. I didn't realize it until the full Sunday slate kicked off and then for 15 minutes I was ecstatic. Until my Survivor Pick, the Steelers, lost their starting center to a torn ACL and shortly thereafter Isaac Redman, whom I started over Eddie Lacy in one league and Rueben Randle in another, fumbled on the five-yard line. Then my No. 1 pick in the $100K NFFC league, Calvin Johnson, got his touchdown reversed, and my No. 1 pick in the NFFC $100K online championship, C.J. Spiller, fumbled and yielded carries to a more-effective Fred Jackson. It was then I remembered what NFL Sundays are really about: extended stretches of stress and misery, punctuated by rare and isolated bursts of joy. But at least I had the Giants game to look forward to on Sunday night... There are at least 10 quarterbacks who are top-five quarterbacks and maybe more. Same with tight ends (h/t Stopa). Every running back except Adri...

Isaac Redman Nearly Invisible vs. Tennessee

Steelers running back Isaac Redman accounted for just 16 yards from scrimmage on 10 touches Sunday.Fantasy Spin:Redman had eight carries for nine yards and two catches for seven.

LaRod Stephens-Howling Suffers Torn ACL

Pittsburgh halfback LaRod Stephens-Howling tore his right ACL Sunday against the Titans.Fantasy Spin:He's been placed on IR, which means he's done for the year. That leaves the backfield duties to Isaac Redman and Felix Jones. Pittsburgh's offense hasn't looked this bad in a long time.

Steelers Loss To Titans: Hard to Find A Silver Lining

By Jeremy Hritz It’s agonizingly difficult to find a silver lining in Sunday's defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Titans, and even upon an extremely close analysis, there may only be a thread of optimism that can be found, and that is in the fact that there are still 15 games left to play.
