Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rushed for 113 yards on 19 carries against the New York Giants in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Snell received most of the work at running back because of the injury to James Conner and would be the starter next week if Conner is not ready to play. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Snell could be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he starts.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell should be able to be more productive for the Steelers this upcoming season since he will be more comfortable playing in the NFL, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Huddle Up: Snell rushed for 426 yards and two touchdowns during his rookie season and saw more playing time than expected because of an injury to RB James Conner. He likely will be the No. 2 running back for the Steelers in 2020 and should see a handful of carries each game. He should be a handcuff to Conner in drafts and could be a late round pick in other drafts.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell topped 90 rushing yards in both of his starts as a rookie and ran for at least 63 rushing yards in four of the five games when he was given at least 16 carries.
Huddle Up: James Conner is expected to lead the Pittsburgh backfield in 2020, but he's no stranger to missing time with injuries. Snell would likely serve as the early-down back if Conner goes down, and he's not a bad late-round flier as a RB5.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell ran seven times for just 14 yards in Week 16 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Snell managed to go nowhere when his number was called after James Conner suffered a thigh injury. Kerrith Whyte was slightly more effective, but not much. It's a mess for the Steelers heading into Week 17 in Baltimore.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rushed 16 times for 41 yards in a 23-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Snell once again led the Pittsburgh backfield, but he was unable to find much running room. Early indications are that James Conner will return in Week 15, but even if Snell draws another start, he will be no more than a flex option against a stout Buffalo defense.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell Jr. posted 16 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns while adding a four-yard catch on his only target.
Huddle Up: Snell has been the lead back with James Conner sidelined for a second straight game, and he posted his first NFL touchdown. He is worth a look as a RB3 or flex fantasy play in Week 14 at Arizona.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell carried the load in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals with RB James Conner (shoulder) sidelined. The starter Conner indicated in a radio interview that he might not be available in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, so Snell might be called upon again.
Huddle Up: Snell flirted with the century mark in rushing yardage with Kerrith Whtye Jr. second on the team in carries, and Jaylen Samuels fighting for crumbs, which was a bit surprising. Snell is going to be a popular by fantasy owners looking to pluck players off the waiver wire heading into Week 13.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rumbled 21 times for a game-high 98 yards in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Snell led the way with Kerrith Whyte Jr. (6-43-0) combining to fill the void with James Conner sidelined. The former Kentucky product is worth a look in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns if Conner cannot go and Snell is given the start.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Snell should see a solid amount of carries this week against the Cincinnati Bengals with James Conner sidelined. He has a chance to be a flex option in some leagues.
