If you just picked up Benny Snell, I might hold off on starting him for another week. Snell and James Conner should split the work again this week, so I'll need some additional evidence that Mike Tomlin intends to use Snell in a workhorse role. Also, Snell is a much better value in standard-scoring leagues than in PPR. 
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
James Conner is reportedly good to go for this week, but Benny Snell looked much better than him in Week 1 and could remain the starter heading into Week 2. Snell had 19 carries for 113 yards against the Giants and may have earned himself the first call on first and second down work. I expect Mike Tomlin to ride the hot hand, although this Broncos' defense is very solid against the run. Until we get more clarity on this backfield, I'm treating both Snell and Conner as low-upside RB3 options. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We don't have an official status on Conner yet, but I'm assuming he'll be ready to go in Week 2 since he seemed willing to go back into the game against the Giants. However, with the way Snell was running, there was no rush, and there might not be a clear-cut favorite to lead this team in touches in Conner is back. Seriously, that's how well Snell played. Granted, it wasn't a bad matchup against the Giants, but he racked up 113 yards on 19 carries in that game, and speaking honestly, he looked better than Conner. It was a very small sample size, so we don't want to jump to conclusions, but rather pay attention. The Broncos run defense was very good last year, allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per opportunity to running backs, though they did face a massive 29.1 running back touches per game, which ranked as the sixth-most in the league. So, volume was necessary. Fast forward to 2020 and they allowed Derrick Henry a scoreless 131 total yards on 34 touches. Still, this is a home team that's favored by 6.5 points and has a 24.8-point team implied total. That's a matchup you typically want to attack. If we hear Conner is a full participant, he should be considered the lead back and a mid-to-low-end RB2 who comes with some risk. If he's limited throughout the week but expected to play, you should be more cautious and treat him as an RB3. Snell is going to have a role, though a lot depends on Conner's status. Stay tuned for updates on Conner, as I'll post them as the week goes on right here at the end of the notes.
