McFarland was raw coming into the NFL, but he showed off his explosiveness on multiple occasions last season. While Najee Harris' presence in this backfield makes McFarland borderline irrelevant for redraft purposes, he could have some appeal as an insurance RB. If Harris misses time this season with an injury, don't be shocked to see McFarland play a big role in this offense.

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.
