Basic StatsAnthony McFarland Jr.'s Preseason Player Analysis

View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • McFarland has logged just 36 carries and 10 targets through 2 seasons. That included only 3 rushes and 1 target last year.
  • His 2nd season was probably doomed when McFarland tore an MCL in practice leading up to Week 1. He only wound up appearing in 2 games and playing 19 total snaps – plus 8 on special teams.
  • McFarland played 0 special teams snaps as a rookie, an aspect that could hurt his chances of sticking on the roster going forward.
  • HC Mike Tomlin referred to McFarland and Benny Snell as “both capable young guys” in March. He did appear to take a jab at McFarland for being less “available,” though. That might indicate the coach believes his young back could have played through more over the past 2 seasons.
  • McFarland also dealt with a high-ankle sprain in his final college season (2019).
  • The Steelers drafted him in Round 4, after McFarland ran a 4.44-second 40 at the Scouting Combine and averaged 6.7 yards per rush across 2 college seasons.
  • He has averaged just 3.2 yards per carry in the NFL so far.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

McFarland has given us little to believe in as a pro so far and is likely not a lock to make the 2022 roster. He’s worth discussing here, though, because of how shallow Pittsburgh’s backfield stands behind Najee Harris. If the Steelers don’t add to the RB group this summer, then McFarland will carry some handcuff upside.

Najee Harris, RB PIT

7:47pm EST 12/1/22

Harris still out Thursday, Snell limited

Steelers RB Najee Harris (oblique) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play vs. the Falcons this weekend. RB Benny Snell was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice with a knee. We'll check back on his status tomorrow.

Steelers RB Najee Harris (oblique) did not practice on Wednesday. While his injury reportedly isn't serious, Harris seems no better than 50/50 to play vs. the Falcons this weekend. RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) was a full go on Wednesday -- confirmation that he'll be back for Sunday's game. We'd expect Warren to lead Pittsburgh's backfield in touches -- ahead of Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland -- if Harris sits.

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren told reporters Wednesday that doctors have cleared him to return from the hamstring injury that cost him Monday night's game against the Colts. He expects to play Sunday against the Falcons. That should put him ahead of Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland Jr. if Najee Harris (abdomen) is unable to go. The lack of clarity on Harris' status for that high-upside matchup makes Warren a solid waiver-wire addition where available.

Steelers RB Najee Harris' status for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons is "up in the air," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Harris' abdominal injury is not major, Rapoport adds, so this shouldn't be a long-term absence. But Pittsburgh's backfield is in flux right now with both Harris and Jaylen Warren (hamstring) iffy for Week 13. If both guys miss, Benny Snell figures to operate as Pittsburgh's lead back, with Anthony McFarland in a change-of-pace role.

The Steelers released RB Anthony McFarland. The 2020 4th-rounder never seemed to make a push for the #2 RB job this offseason. Pittsburgh is rolling with RBs Jaylen Warren and Benny Snell behind RB Najee Harris.
