Pittsburgh Steelers Roster
The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to retain linebacker Bud Dupree going into the 2020 season, and it very well could come on the franchise tag. The franchise tag for Dupree would cost Pittsburgh $16.266 million, but Dupree might be worth that after recording a career-high 68 total tackles (49 solo), 11.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in a full season in 2019. He is one of the better young linebackers in the game and will definitely be in play in IDP leagues again next season.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. logged 91 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Ravens. With rain soaking M&T Bank Stadium, quarterback Devlin Hodges, who threw just 95 yards, leaned heavily on Snell, who recorded 18 attempts, which was his second-best effort of the year. The 21-year-old had his number called often this season in the absence of the injury-plagued James Conner (shoulder/quadriceps) and finished with 426 yards on the ground, good for second on the team behind Conner, who had 464. With the Steelers having some work to do on both ends of the football, his role for next season is unknown at this time, with more being revealed during this upcoming offseason.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Devlin Hodges gets to face off with the Baltimore Ravens in a win-or-go-home matchup on Sunday. Hodges has started each of the last four games, and despite being benched in Week 16 for Mason Rudolph (shoulder), the rookie will get his fifth straight start since Rudolph got placed on injured reserve. The Ravens are already sitting Earl Thomas and could potentially save Jimmy Smith and Marcus Peters. However, even if they sit out, Hodges and his six interceptions over the last two games has shown that he can't be trusted for DFS purposes.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. may wind up serving as the full-time back if James Conner (quad) is unable to go. Conner has missed practice all week after toting just six carries a week ago, before going down with the injury. However, in Snell's seven carries against the Jets, he rushed for just 14 yards, so a matchup with the Ravens isn't exactly ideal. In his favor, the Ravens are expected to sit defensive tackle Brandon Williams, so if Snell does get the lions share, he could return RB3 numbers if he finds the end zone.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (quadriceps) will not play in the 2019 regular season finale against the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced on Friday. Conner went down with the leg injury against the Jets last Sunday and will cede the starting role to Benny Snell Jr., who rushed for just 14 yards on seven carries last Sunday. The rookie isn't a great option against a Ravens Defense that has allowed just 10 rushing touchdowns to backs this season, although they'll be resting most of their starters this weekend. Snell is an RB3, at best, and you could definitely do better for DFS purposes. Jaylen Samuels, Kerrith Whyte Jr. and Trey Edmunds will likely be involved in the backfield as well in this must-win contest.
