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.

Jaylen Warren, RB PIT

7:15pm EDT 9/5/22

Warren RB2 on Week 1 depth chart

The Steelers list RB Jaylen Warren as the #2 RB on their Week 1 depth chart. It's confirmation that the undrafted rookie beat out RB Benny Snell for that job. Warren won't be a fantasy factor as long as RB Najee Harris is healthy. But he'd be the pickup if Harris misses time this year.

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.

Steelers RB Benny Snell started Saturday's 2nd preseason game against Jacksonville, working ahead of rookie Jaylen Warren. That's noteworthy because Warren has generated plenty of training-camp buzz. That included at least 1 Steelers writer positing this week that he believed Warren has already earned the #2 job. Saturday's usage, of course, doesn't necessarily mean that Snell remains the backup to Najee Harris. But it does mean we'll need to continue watching before anointing the new guy. Anthony McFarland is also in the mix for roles behind Harris. We'll see whether all 3 backup candidates make the regular-season roster.

DK Pittsburgh Sports' Dale Lolley believes Jaylen Warren has supplanted Benny Snell as the Steelers' #2 RB. Warren, a 5'8, 215-pound undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma State, has been the surprise of Steelers camp. He also looked good in the preseason opener, posting a 6-34-0 rushing line and 4-30-1 receiving. We'll continue to keep an eye on this depth chart. Of course, neither Warren nor Snell is a fantasy option without an injury to RB Najee Harris.

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. “I’ve had a lot of setbacks, but I’ve learned a lot,” McFarland said. “Coming into Year 3, I’m feeling more comfortable and understanding what it is that I want my role to be to help the team out. I know there is a lot of doubt in my game. That’s what happens when you haven’t stepped on the field and showed much. But that’s what makes me hungry.” Veteran status makes McFarland and Snell the early favorites. But it’s quite possible Pittsburgh adds talent to the backfield this summer.
