From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 14): James Conner left with a quad injury and Snell was solid in his stead, although the Steelers are heading into a bye and Conner might have been benched as a precaution since the team had a big lead. Snell is worth stashing through the bye in deep leagues to see if Conner can hold up now that he has had three different injuries this year.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 6 vs LAC (17 / 75 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)

With Jaylen Samuels out for an extended period, the Steelers needed someone to turn to behind Conner. Snell is not the same type of smooth runner Conner is, but generates good build up speed and power through the hole once he gets a runway and Snell had the runway against the Chargers. The Steelers were routinely blowing the Chargers off the line of scrimmage and pushing them backwards. In the fourth quarter Snell's best run came on a power run concept. The lineman were all one on one and won at the point of attach and created a massive hole for Snell to run through. Snell exploded through the hole and gained good speed at the second level. Snell ended the contest with a lot of confidence from the coaching staff, receiving the last eight running back touches of the game.

2019 Week 2 vs SEA (1 / 23 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

It was only one touch, but Snell showed why he was picked in the fourth round and how he earned a game day active. On his first carry, Snell had excellent blocking ahead of him, was in his lineman's back pocket as he approached the line, and made a simple cut to find his running lane. Snell accelerated quickly through the hole and evaded multiple arm tackles through the pile.
