Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell Jr. posted 16 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns while adding a four-yard catch on his only target.

Footballguys view: Snell split carries with Jaylen Samuels and Kerrith Whyte early, but was the back who got all of the work when the team needed to salt away the lead. He should be a flex play against Arizona next week if James Conner is still out.

  Steelers | Benny Snell bottled up    Thu Aug 29, 10:37 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell rushed eight times for 12 yards and caught two of his three targets for 23 yards in a 25-19 preseason loss to the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Snell's burst has looked very underwhelming in NFL terms and he might not be active on gamedays, although since the team spent a fourth-round pick on him, he's likely to make the roster. Trey Edmunds could also make the final 53 because of his special teams contributions and serve as the #3 back on gamedays.
