If you're nervous about an injury or a match-up in a deeper league, picking up newly minted starter Redman may not be a bad idea for a flex option in Week 1.
Tennessee's defense is still up in the air, although it has potential to be a decent run-stuffing unit. The Steelers rested Redman for much of this preseason, with the idea in mind of running him early and often in what are likely to be summer-like conditions in Pittsburgh Sunday.
Redman has had a week or two of success here and there, but he only had 100 yards in a game twice last season. The Steelers were looking to implement an outside zone running scheme this year, but could just stick to power with the bigger Redman led by fullback Will Johnson (who is expected to play after suffering an injury in the Steelers' preseason finale Aug. 29).
