One dimensional back that scores poorly in @GrahamBarfield 's Yards Created model. Despite consistently demonstrating strength against upper body attacks, Dillon can be a simple take down in the open field. He's not terrible at changing direction or making a cut when it's a part of the plan, but in terms of pure athleticism the stiffness in his hips is on display often. @JetPackGalileo

 The Steelers have already said that if James Conner is healthy, they want him to be that "lead back" that Mike Tomlin has always leaned on. They also said they believe Benny Snell can be that guy if something were to happen to Conner. That doesn't mean McFarland will be chopped liver, but it does mean he's not going to be a 10-plus touch running back without injury. I've compared McFarland to Chris Thompson, which would make sense based on the Steelers' comments on the power running backs. If he gets 6-10 touches per week, he has enough explosion on a per-play basis to make an impact at times, but nothing you want to rely on consistently.

AJ Dillon has the draft capital on his side, but it's difficult to see him seeing any significant work in year one with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams ahead of him. This move screams Matt LaFluer wants Derrick Henry back for this offense in Green Bay, but the issue is that Dillon isn't on the same planet from a talent perspective that Henry is...It's hard to see this move panning out long-term, but he'll be given every opportunity to succeed in the years to come.Anthony McFarland has shown the juice to be a spark plug for an offense that could develop into a full-time starter down the road. With James Conner and Jaylen Samuels ahead of him, it's unlikely that we see McFarland have much fantasy football relevancy in 2020, but he could be a great plug-and-play option if James Conner were to go down with an injury again. If I'm the Conner owner in Dynasty, I'm making sure I don't leave my draft without McFarland.
