Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed that Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles, probable) will get the start on Sunday night versus the Ravens.

"Mendenhall is going to start. He's healthy, and so we're going to do that, but you're going to see all backs," said Tomlin. This has been the thinking all week, but it's looking like a shaky fantasy situation. Mendenhall will handle early downs with Jonathan Dwyer being the change-of-pace back, and Isaac Redman will play on third down. Mendenhall is the lone back in Pittsburgh we trust as a flex play.

Do I play Mendy or M. Reece

They will rely heavy on the run game wit a mix of screens here and there Wallace could break but I'd go with hall and guaranteed touches vs. a week run defense

Wallace is a deep threat a nd Leftwich can't throw the ball that far.

Mendy if non PPR....

I have a choice between him and Lloyd, and I'm going Mendy. Tomlin has to know they will need to rely heavily on the run with Big Ben out. Mendy has to get 16-25 carries for them to have a shot at beating the Ravens.
