Benny Snell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers
With James Conner (shoulder) out again in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals, out of nowhere Snell had far more touches than Jaylen Samuels 23-5. Conner may be able to play Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, but at this point nothing about his status should be assumed at all.
Snell has 17 or more carries in two games this season, with 75 and 98 yards on the ground respectively and a touchdown in each.
The rookie out of Kentucky now tentatively looks like the top handcuff to Conner. He’s well worth a speculative add in all leagues.
