Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Snell Jr. got a fair amount of work last year in relief of James Conner, seeing 108 carries and gaining 426 yards with two touchdowns. When he got enough volume, he generally produced, totaling at least 89 total yards or a touchdown in each game he received 17 touches or more. He'll likely be the primary backup again to James Conner, but Anthony McFarland Jr. and Jaylen Samuels will still factor in. He's a low-end handcuff at this point given the crowded Pittsburgh backfield.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.
