Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. is installing an outside zone, one-cut blocking scheme in organized team activities in favor of their old power and inside blocking scheme. The Steelers are changing their approach to take advantage of their big and nimble offensive line personnel. Pittsburgh got poor production from their running backs last year, and RB Jonathan Dwyer led the team in rushing with only 623 yards, the lowest total by a rusher in team history since Merrill Hoge ran for 810 in 1991. Bicknell had success with the blocking scheme with the Kansas City Chiefs last year. "We are going to be dedicated to the zone," RB Isaac Redman said. "We are still going to be a power team, but we are going to have this zone scheme in so we can keep the defense on its heels and keep them running."
Fantasy Tip: This new scheme should make Dwyer more productive, but many wonder if he has what it takes to be an every-down back in the NFL. Le'Veon Bell and Redman will spell him plenty, probably. Dwyer, as a result, is likely nothing more than a midrange No. 3 running back. Bell is worth a mid- to late-round pick, too.
