Benny Snell Jr. could be on the hot seat in Pittsburgh

Steelers RB Benny Snell is facing stiff competition for the backup role and could end up a cut candidate in the near future.

Fantasy Impact

Snell was allowed to take the lead back role in Pittsburgh in 2020 with James Conner sidelined with injuries but could never really take advantage. However, with the drafting of Najee Harris and the signing of journeyman Kalen Ballage, Snell aims to prove he's more than "just a guy" heading into training camp. Whether it be Snell or Ballage, the handcuff to Harris will be a valuable insurance policy for fantasy managers in 2021.

Benny Snell Jr. unlikely to remain atop RB depth chart, per beat writer

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell Jr., who is currently atop the Steelers depth chart at running back after the team chose not to re-sign James Conner, is unlikely to remain the top back once the season gets underway, per Mark Kaboly of The Athletic.

Fantasy Impact

The Steelers still have a chance to add another back via free agency or draft one in the first or second round of the upcoming draft, which is the more likely scenario of the two. "It’s hard to imagine they will go into the season with Benny Snell Jr. as their No. 1 back, even though he’s been successful when given the opportunity," Kaboly added when referencing Snell Jr. The 23-year-old University of Kentucky product totaled 368 rushing yard on 111 totes with four TD's while adding 10 receptions for 61 yards. He picked up some tough yards for the Steelers in December but the team struggled to get much push last season.

Benny Snell Jr. sees three touches in playoff loss

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. carried the ball twice for 13 yards and added a four-yard catch in a 48-37 loss to the Browns in the Wild Card round.

Fantasy Impact

Snell didn't do much in the game as James Conner saw 16 touches. That being said, Conner is an unrestricted free-agent and might not be back in Pittsburgh next year. A lot could happen this offseason but Snell has a chance to emerge as the team's No. 1 running back in 2021.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. carried the ball three times for 10 yards in a 24-22 loss to Cleveland in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Snell continues to operate as a strict backup whenever James Conner is healthy. That being said, he's worth stashing in dynasty in the offseason as Conner is slated to become a free agent.

Benny Snell Jr. sees six carries
