Summary

A fourth-round pick out of Kentucky in the 2019 NFL draft, Benny Snell is a player to watch in dynasty formats. However, he also has interesting re-draft prospects based on what happens to James Conner this season. Last year, with Conner banged up, Snell started two games for the Steelers and looked good down the stretch. He finished his rookie season with a 18 carry, 91-yard performance (with one touchdown) against the Ravens. Snell is now looking to carry that momentum over to this season. Snell is a compact runner who is tough to bring down with a head of steam. He does a good job of driving his legs upon contact and knows how to 'get skinny' when running between the tackles. This season could be the final season for Conner in a Steelers uniform, so Snell could take over in this backfield in 2021. However, there are indications this team is going to use less of Conner in an effort to keep him fresh. That would likely give Snell some more playing time and touches. He most certainly will push for a larger role in training camp. (May 18)
