Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rushed six times for no yards in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts and he was not targeted in the pass game.
Huddle Up: The Colts locked down the Steelers on the ground, as Pittsburgh had just 20 yards on 14 carries, or 1.4 yards per gain. Snell and the Steelers run game will look for better results in Week 17 in Cleveland.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rushed 18 times for a game-high 84 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he added three catches for 23 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Snell picked up the slack with James Conner on the sidelines, posting 107 total scrimmage yards which was his highest total since Week 1, also on a Monday night, against the New York Giants. If Snell starts again in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts he would be a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rushed for five yards on eight carries against the Washington Football Team in Week 13. He also caught two passes for five yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Snell received most of the carries with James Conner sidelined but struggled against Washington. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Conner is able to play next week. Snell could be a flex option in some leagues if he receives the start next week.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rushed for 60 yards and 16 carries and added 33 receiving yards while catching three of four targets against the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, Dec. 2.
Huddle Up: Snell was much better than RB Anthony McFarland Jr. and should have cemented his role as the RB2 behind James Conner, once Conner is able to return to the lineup. Snell should remain on fantasy rosters as a top handcuff.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell will serve as the main running back for the Steelers in Week 12 with RB James Conner (illness) sidelined, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Huddle Up: Snell has rushed for 195 yards in limited playing time this season but did rush for 119 yards in Week 1 when he received most of the carries during that game. Snell can be considered a flex option in most leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rushed seven times for 15 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he was not targeted in the pass game.
Huddle Up: Snell's touchdown was nice, but fantasy owners need more than 2.1 yards per touch. He remains useful as a RB3 or flex play in fantasy leagues as long as he splits carries with James Conner. Next up is a visit from the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving night in Week 12.

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.
