2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
I'm lumping these guys together as I think it's likely only one of them ends up playing enough meaningful snaps for the Steelers this season to be fantasy relevant. I know the Pittsburgh offense struggled mightily last year, but what Samuels did on the ground in 2019 was brutal. His 2.7 yards-per-carry average was amongst the worst in the league and he was merely a low-upside checkdown target in the passing game. He was all but phased out of the offense entirely down the stretch of the season, and the selection of McFarland Jr. means even his grip on playing time is tenuous at best. The rookie from Maryland brings some flash (4.44 40-yard dash) to what has generally been a workman-like backfield. His blend of size, speed, and acceleration should provide Pittsburgh with a dynamic playmaker from a position that has been sorely lacking one. As a raw rookie who didn't catch the ball much even in college, he needs to develop that part of the game to earn shares of the passing game touches. He's pretty low on the depth chart at this point, but I think McFarland has the tools to be a difference maker on this offense if he can come in and refine his game. He'll be someone to watch as a waiver add as the season moves on.

Injury James Conner downgraded to Out
Quad injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 21, 4:20 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
RB James Conner has been downgraded to out for tonight’s game against the Bengals. (Steelers on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Conner and the rest of the running game has been a disappointment in 2020 scoring the 2nd fewest fantasy points at the position. We'll likely see a mix of Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland Jr. and Jaylen Samuels but it's hard to excited about any of them even against the Bengals.
