Player Notes
Dec 1 5:10pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. took 16 carries for 63 yards and a score, while also catching one pass for four yards in Sundays win over the Cleveland Browns. This is the third game this season where he has earned the bulk of carries on offense and the Kentucky product has performed admirably. While Jaylen Samuels took seven carries, most of them came with him acting as the wildcat quarterback. Snell will continue to be the lead back until James Conner (shoulder) returns to full health. A matchup with the Arizona Cardinals looms large in Week 14 and Snell can be considered a touchdown-dependent RB3 for fantasy.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. will likely serve as the No. 1 option out of the backfield if James Conner (shoulder), who is listed as doubtful, isn't able to go on Sunday. The 21-year-old played well in place of Conner against the Bengals in Week 12, finishing the day with 98 yards on 21 carries. Jaylen Samuels will likely get some touches but should get most of his production catching passes out of the backfield. Look for Snell to have his number called often against Cleveland in Week 13, especially with rookie Devlin Hodges starting and JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion/knee) unable to play, making him an option with decent upside in all fantasy formats.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. took 21 carries for 98 yards and he also caught one pass for five yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. The team gave the rookie the workhorse role with James Conner (shoulder) out, which left Jaylen Samuels for scraps in Week 12. While he still has yet to find the end zone in his first campaign, Snell has shown he has the ability that pushed the Steelers to draft him in the fourth round this year. His usage in Week 13, against the Browns, will depend upon the availability of Conner, following another week of practice.

Nov 19 12:30pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he's "excited about the potential return" of rookie running back Benny Snell Jr. (knee) for Week 12 against the Bengals. Snell has missed the last two games and will be evaluated in practice this week. The 21-year-old has 28 rushing attempts for 118 yards in five games this season. He could have a role in the team's backfield if he returns this weekend if James Conner (shoulder) remains sidelined, but Jaylen Samuels would still likely see most of the touches as Pittsburgh's lead back. Snell is only worth stashing in deeper leagues if you own either Conner or Samuels.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. (knee) underwent surgery to trim the meniscus in his knee, according to a source. It was a minor procedure but is expected to keep him out for two to three weeks. Snell suffered the injury in the Monday night win over the Dolphins. It's a hit to the team's running back depth, especially with James Conner (shoulder) also getting injured on Monday. The good news is that it looks like Jaylen Samuels (knee) will be able to return this Sunday against the Colts, and he could have RB2 upside if Conner is held out or limited at all. Next up on the depth chart would be Trey Edmunds. Snell can be dropped in most leagues with Samuels nearing a return.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back's James Conner (shoulder) and Benny Snell Jr. (knee) will be limited in practice this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Conner suffered an AC joint sprain late in the fourth quarter of Monday's 27-14 win over Miami, whereas Snell went down earlier in the contest. Losing Conner would be a big hit to the offense, after rushing for 145 yards and a score in Week 8. Expect Jaylen Samuels (knee) to become the lead back in Week 9 against the Colts, should either previously mentioned player miss time.

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Benny Snell Jr. rushed for 13 yards on five carries before exiting Monday nights game against the Dolphins with a knee injury, according to Burt Lauten. The Kentucky product got some early work, despite the Steelers trailing Miami for the entire first half. The severity of the injury is unknown, but expect him to be listed as day-to-day until more testing are complete. Snell isnt fantasy relevant except for serving as James Conners handcuff. However, consider that Jaylen Samuels is close to returning and you can likely drop the rookie in all formats.

Oct 25 3:50pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Benny Snell Jr. rushed for 75 yards on 17 carries in the team's Week 6 win over the Chargers. His workload could be similar for Monday Night Football, when the team hosts Miami. In a projected blowout, if the Steelers want to run the clock out and save James Conner's legs, Snell would be the go-to back late in the game. While this won't make him fantasy relevant in Week 8, it should give you a reason to roster him, especially if you're a Conner owner.

Oct 14 11:00am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers Running back Benny Snell Jr. took 17 carries for 75 yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chargers. This was the largest workload to date for the rookie from Kentucky. While his usage was likely game script dependent, it was interesting to see him out-rush James Conner who totaled just 41 yards, but did score a touchdown. Snell Jr. is still just a stash candidate for the event of a Conner injury, but keep in mind that Jaylen Samuels will be returning in a little over a month. Pittsburgh is on bye for Week 7, so you might be able to scoop up Snell for cheap.

Oct 11 5:30pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. will back up James Conner for the near future while Jaylen Samuels (knee) recovers from surgery. With a matchup against the LA Chargers on Sunday night, Snell won't likely get many touches except to rest Conner. However, if you're the Conner owner in your league, it's best to scoop Snell up in the event of an injury to the incumbent. The rookie Snell has been limited in his first year, taking just six carries for 30 yards while only being targeted once in the passing game.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. took three carries for six yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. The rookie received minimal work but still got more work than Jaylen Samuels. He's not worthy of any consideration right now but if he continues to be the backup to James Conner, he may have some redraft value if Conner were to go down for an extended period. Pittsburgh hosts the Bengals for Monday Night Football in Week 4 and the Kentucky product can stay safely on waivers.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. rushed eight times for just 12 yards, while also catching two of three targets for 23 yards in Thursday's final preseason game against the Panthers. Snell Jr., the rookie out of Kentucky, has received 28 carries this preseason and has earned just 54 yards. He's more of a bruiser than incumbent backup Jaylen Samuels, but his lack of production in the preseason has to make the team question his readiness for the NFL. Snell Jr. is a solid dynasty option due to Pittsburgh's offensive prowess, but his first taste of the NFL hasn't been as impressive as some other rookies in the league.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. (groin) didn't appear in Sunday night's preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. Snell suffered a groin injury in last week's preseason game against the Chiefs and he did not practice all week. The rookie out of Kentucky has rushed for 42 yards on 20 carries through his first two career NFL games. As a third-round pick, his spot should be safe on the roster, but he won't have much value on the team unless something were to happen to either James Conner or Jaylen Samuels. He is merely a dynasty stash for the time being.

Aug 18 12:20am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. rushed seven times for 16 yards and caught two passes for five yards in Saturday's 17-7 win over Kansas City. The 2019 fourth-round pick is getting a strong look this preseason as the team knows what to expect from incumbent James Conner and Jaylen Samuels. Snell Jr. is Kentucky's all-time leading rusher so his talent is undeniable, but it might be awhile before he gets a solid workload in Pittsburgh. He has solid dynasty value but can be forgotten about in redraft, unless something were to happen to Conner or Samuels.

Aug 10 12:00am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. finished with just 26 yards on 13 carries, while hauling in 2 passes for 25 yards in Friday's preseason win over the Buccaneers. Snell didn't have much room to run but seeing him involved in the passing game was encouraging for his fantasy stock. After leading the SEC in rushing last season, the rookie is working to carve out a role in an offense that lost two of its biggest playmakers. Nonetheless, Snell Jr. only carries dynasty value for the time being, but if anything were to happen to James Conner, Snell Jr. would likely see himself thrusted into an early-down role.

Jul 31 10:30pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Benny Snell Jr. gained the early favor of head coach Mike Tomlin on Monday. The team runs an annual "backs-on-backers" drill that pits the team's young ball carriers up against the linebacking corps in an effort to test their pass-blocking skills. Snell Jr. made a quick impression with his competitiveness and ability to keep the quarterback safe. While he didn't succeed on every rep, Tomlin continually put the rookie to the test and he met the expectations. Snell Jr. is third in line for touches this season, but being able to pass block is a quick way to earn playing time in games. James Conner and Jaylen Samuels will be in front of him all season, but Snell Jr. will be ready to go if one of them goes down with an injury. For fantasy, his immediate value is in dynasty leagues, while his re-draft value in nonexistent for the time being.

Jun 28 2:40pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. is entering his rookie season after being selected in the fourth round of this year's draft. The Kentucky product is fresh off a fruitful career in the SEC. He rushed for 1,000 yards in all three seasons, including 1,449 yards and 16 scores in 2018. Snell knows that the NFL is an entirely different game, and after recently finishing the team's mini camp, he is ready to hit the ground running at training camp in late July. "I knew the tempo was going to be faster than it normally is for college ball," the rookie said. Snell is power back who will be fighting with second-year back Jaylen Samuels to backup incumbent James Conner. The rookie doesn't hold any redraft value, but he does warrant some interest in dynasty drafts. If anything were to happen to Conner, Snell would likely become a big part of the Steelers' powerful offense.
