In an interview with Dale Lolley, Steelers RB James Conner commended RB Benny Snell Jr. for his Week 1 performance against the Giants. "I thought his performance was good, 100 yards, closing the game out at the end with good, hard running, falling forward," Conner said. "I see a guy who has been constantly improving. It's so cool to see."
Conner was being diplomatic regarding Snell's performance, but Snell did make the Steelers offense well-rounded and looked better than Conner for at least one week. Conner is questionable for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, so it is unknown how involved Snell will be Sunday.
PIT RB Benny Snell Jr. - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 vs Titans
Snell saw some garbage-time work and even scored a touchdown in Week 6. His ceiling is obviously capped by James Conner, but with four teams on a bye, he at least cracks our top 50 backs for the week and has seen seven touches in each of his last three games.
