View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Snell collected just 40 total opportunities last season: 36 carries and 4 targets. Twelve of those carries came in a Week 18 game Najee Harris left (but later came back to). Otherwise, Snell averaged 1.5 rushing attempts per outing.
  • That fell significantly from 8.3 and 6.9 carries per game in his 1st 2 seasons.
  • Snell’s yards per rush have gone from 3.9 in his rookie season to 3.3 and 2.7. He had a long run of just 9 yards in 2021.
  • Anthony McFarland should be healthier this year. He tore an MCL in practice ahead of last season’s opener and then made it onto the active roster for just 2 games.
  • HC Mike Tomlin called McFarland and Snell “both capable young guys” in March, specifically highlighting Snell for being available. (Whereas McFarland has been hurt.)
  • Pittsburgh has added only undrafted free agents Jaylen Warren and Mataeo Durant to the backfield as of this writing.
  • Steelers beat writer Chris Adamski writes that the #2 RB job is “wide open” between Anthony McFarland, Benny Snell and UDFAs Jaylen Warren and Mataeo Durant.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Snell arrived as a limited talent and has offered limited (declining) production through 3 seasons. The Steelers have to be hoping that Anthony McFarland is ready to play a meaningful role in his 3rd season. If not, we might see Pittsburgh make a summertime move for another RB.

Najee Harris, RB PIT

7:14pm EST 12/21/22

Harris not practicing on Wednesday

Steelers RB Najee Harris (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. The second-year back was a limited participant yesterday, however. This development should give fantasy managers some pause. That said, we do have tomorrow's report to give us better clarity. Jaylen Warren and Benny Snell Jr. would potentially stand to benefit from a Harris absence on Saturday. Keep an eye out on the waiver wire just in case.

Steelers RB Najee Harris handled 17 of the team's 24 RB carries in Sunday's win over the Falcons. He had another productive outing, averaging 5.1 yards per rush (86 yards in all). Harris drew just 1 target, though, catching it for 6 yards. RB Jaylen Warren beat him with 2 receptions for 14 yards on 2 targets, while RB Benny Snell added an 11-yard catch on his lone target. Snell also rushed 6 times for 24 yards. Warren logged only 1 carry for 5 yards. He entered the day questionable with a hamstring issue. Week 14 brings a home date with a tough Baltimore run defense.

Steelers RB Najee Harris (oblique) is not listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but confirmed afterward that he’ll play vs. the Falcons this weekend. RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) is listed as questionable but put in a full week of practice, so he should be available on Sunday. Benny Snell (knee) is off the final injury report. Check out the updated projections for Pittsburgh’s backfield.

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.
