Steelers Mendenhall Celebrates TD Against Packers in Pittsburgh

2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Rashard Mendenhall went under the radar for most of last offseason as he was out for most of his rookie year with a broken shoulder. Then early in the season, Mendenhall was held out of playing with the team because he wasn’t taking care of details in practice.

By week four, Mendenhall received an opportunity to start because Willie Parker suffered turf toe and wasn’t able to play. In that game, the young running back pounded the football for 165 rushing yards and two touchdowns against the Chargers.

After this fine performance, Mendenhall remained the starting tailback and ran for over 1,100 yards and eight total touchdowns.

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: The Steelers management and fan base have been screaming for a return to hard nosed defense and a smash mouth running game. This means good things for Mendenhall because the defense should give him many opportunities and his number will be called often for the ground game.

Now, all we need to see is if Mendenhall is going to win the short yardage, goal line role on the team. One would have to believe he will succeed as he is best fit to handle these duties, but he did have struggles in this area last year.

If Mendenhall wins the job, he should creep his way into the late first round of some fantasy leagues come draft day.
