Benny Snell Jr. Not A Fantasy Option In Week 3

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. struggled in a Week 2 win over the Denver Broncos. Many expected Snell to split carries with James Conner after the latter injured his ankle in Week 1, but instead Conner out-touched Snell 18 to four last week. If Snell is going to remain in a strict backup role then fantasy gamers should have little trouble finding a better option to start for Week 3. Treat Snell as a nothing more than a handcuff option to Conner going forward and leave him on the bench despite a favorable Week 3 matchup against the Houston Texans.

Benny Snell Jr. Returns To Backup Role In Week 2

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. returned to a backup role behind James Conner in a 26-21 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 2. Snell carried the ball just three times for five yards, lost a fumble, and lost four yards on his lone reception. It was a rough outing for the second-year runner who was a surprise 100-yard rusher in Week 1. The Steelers' actions on Sunday told fantasy gamers that they plan on utilizing Conner as their bell-cow running back as long as he's healthy. Don't despair if you spent a waiver claim on Snell, however, as Conner has been one of the most injury-prone players in the league the past two seasons. Pittsburgh faces the Houston Texans at home in Week 3.

James Conner, Benny Snell Jr. Expected To Split Carries

Pittsburgh Steelers running backs James Conner and Benny Snell Jr. are expected to split carries moving forward. Conner left the game against the Giants early after getting injured and Snell Jr. made the most of the opportunity, posting a 100-yard day. While Conner is playing on Sunday against the Broncos, this is not an encouraging development for his fantasy prospects in the near future. Both backs could be used for fantasy purposes in a tough Week 2 matchup, though there is some risk due to the uncertainty of how the touches will be split. It's entirely possible that Snell Jr. snatches the lead back role from Conner this week.
