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 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 vs Colts
With James Conner dealing with a quadriceps injury, Snell saw 18 carries 84 yards and a touchdown and 21 total touches for 107 yards. Conner returned to practice Thursday so it's tough to gauge what the running back situation will look like on Sunday. Snell is our No. 35 half-PPR running back but keep an eye on James Conner's status for Sunday. Indianapolis did just allow David Johnson to catch 11 passes for 106 yards
