Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Snell appears to be locked in as the primary backup in Pittsburgh, but he's unlikely to have a workhorse role even if we were to see Conner miss time in 2020. There would most likely be some form of committee in this backfield, which puts Snell in the conversation of a low-end insurance RB. He's not worth rostering in typical fantasy football leagues, but if you have a deep bench he's a fine stash.Bernard's a fine football player, but he's not very fantasy relevant. He'll see enough work to hurt Joe Mixon's overall potential, but Bernard isn't someone that you should feel comfortable rolling out in your lineups this season.
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. Reports are that he'll 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.Had Bernard not missed six games in 2016 that artificially kept his numbers down, he'd be coming off three straight years of declining touches. As it is, he's been nothing more than a change-of-pace back for the last two seasons, who occasionally factors into the passing game but rarely does anything noteworthy. Even with an injury to Joe Mixon, it's doubtful that Bernard would carry the load himself given his age and size, so he's best ignored in fantasy circles.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
What a mess this Steelers backfield has become. Luckily, Mike Tomlin tends to favour a lead back and that makes things clearer, James Conner is probably the guy. Then again, he's one of the most injury-prone backs in the NFL and Snell showed solid running in his five starts, getting 16+ carries in each. While the drafting of Anthony McFarland may prove a problem in the battle for the lead handcuff, I back Snell to come out on top if and when Conner goes down. Just be aware he's far more of a non-PPR guy.Giovani Bernard is the backup in Cincinnati. If Joe Mixon holds out there's a solid chance Bernard will be the guy who fills in and that's quite a valuable role in this offense. While Trayveon Williams and Rodney Anderson will surely gets some snaps, they're 6th rounders for a reason and they're not likely to immediately take the lead away from Gio. I'm not saying Bernard should be a high draft priority but he does have good upside if you're running short on options.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 It's kind of crazy how fast everyone fell off the Bernard bandwagon, as he was once considered a borderline RB1. He is obviously behind Joe Mixon on the depth chart, but that's the only player standing between him and a 15-touch role. Mixon is also in a contract year and has threatened a holdout without a new contract. If we get closer to the NFL season and Mixon still hasn't been locked up long term, Bernard should be someone you consider in the late rounds.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Snell showed a couple of flashes of brilliance as a rookie but for the most part, was largely underwhelming. With James Conner now back and healthy, Snell doesn't need to be considered in redraft leagues this year.As usual, Bernard can't be considered as anything more than a handcuff in 2020 with Joe Mixon primed for a breakout season. That being said, there have been few handcuffs more valuable than over the last few years. I don't see much stand-alone value, but if you drafted Mixon, I highly recommend targeting Bernard.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 He's never had fewer than 40 targets, or 30 receptions in a season, plays consistently around 40% of the time, and also gets to play with Joe Burrow, strange they don't sub him out when Mixon comes off
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Drips in early Best Ball upside should he become their lead-RB. Not a ton of competition for duties behind Conner has been added.
