Steelers fan here... I expect that Snell will be the lead back in Pittsburgh if Conner goes down. And I don't think we have to wait too long for that to happen. Snell had a very good camp and looked good with the limited touches last year. Also, last year he had surgery during the season before he got the bulk of carries. That alone shows the trust the team has in Snell. Yes, at that point there wasn't that much competition as practice squad running backs also got some carries, but Samuel isn't a threat and as long as with McFarland you have to wait, but I don't think he is lead back material and has his own role even with a healthy Conner. The coaching staff loves Snell and in my humble opinion, this love is justified. Many expect Snell to be the running back for the Steelers in the coming years with Conner in a contract year and cap space hell next year in Pittsburgh. If Conner goes down, I think they want to know what they have in Snell, no worries about a fantasy irrelevant commitee.
