Anthony McFarland Jr. (knee) activated to 53-man roster

The Steelers activated Anthony McFarland Jr., who had been on IR with a knee injury, to the 53-man roster on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

This was the end of McFarland's 21-day practice window as he returned from IR, so the Steelers had to activate him or he would have been done for the season. McFarland has no fantasy value right now, as Najee Harris should continue to dominate the touches in the Pittsburgh backfield, so don't bother adding him in fantasy leagues.

Anthony McFarland Jr. (knee) designated to return

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Anthony McFardland Jr. has been designated to return from the injured reserve list.

Fantasy Impact

McFarland has been sidelined all season with the knee injury but is now cleared to return to practice. The team now has 21 days to activate him or place him on season-ending injured reserve. With Najee Harris operating as a workhorse in the truest sense of the word, it is hard to imagine McFarland emerging with any fantasy value any time soon.

Anthony McFarland Jr. placed on IR

The Steelers placed RB Anthony McFarland Jr. on injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear as to what McFarland is dealing with. He missed the Steelers' final preseason game with an undisclosed injury, and now he'll miss the first three games of the regular season (at least). Benny Snell and Kalen Ballage will open the year as the backups to Najee Harris.

Anthony McFarland Jr. goes for 34 yards on Thursday

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Anthony McFarland Jr.carried the ball nine times for a total of 34 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

With the Steelers running back room being loaded with talent, McFarland made his talents know on Thursday racking up 34 yards and a touchdown. With Najee Harris at the top of the depth chart, McFarland, Jaylen Samuels, and Benny Snell continue to fight in out for the second string and back up jobs. The situation is worth monitoring for fantasy relevance.

Anthony McFarland Jr. goes for 17 yards

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Anthony McFarland Jr. carried the ball five times for 17 yards in a 24-22 loss to Cleveland in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

McFarland got a few carries as a change-of-pace option behind James Conner and Benny Snell. The rookie remains a solid stash in dynasty leagues as his role could grow in 2021 if Pittsburgh doesn't re-sign Conner in the offseason.
