2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Kentucky product certainly has the bloodlines to succeed in the NFL. His father, Benjamin Sr., was drafted by the Ravens, though his pro career was spent in NFL Europe and the first iteration of the XFL, while his great-uncle Matt scored the Jets' only TD in their Super Bowl III victory. Snell looks the part of a pro back too and runs with solid patience and power, traits that should make him a good fit for a Steelers offense with a Le'Veon Bell-shaped hole in it. Snell is no Bell, though. A lack of elusiveness limits his ability to chew up yardage after hitting the hole, so his probable future role will be as a short-yardage specialist and red-zone weapon. There might not be many touches available behind James Conner, but Snell could at least challenge Jaylen Samuels for the No. 2 job. Read Past Outlooks

Features in preseason finale

Snell rushed eight times for 12 yards and caught two of three targets for 23 yards in Thursday night's 25-19 preseason loss to the Panthers.
Snell missed Pittsburgh's third exhibition contest due to a slight groin ailment, but was back on the field to finish his first preseason Thursday. Although the rookie fourth-rounder didn't get much going on the ground, he flashed some ability in the passing game. That versatility could serve him well as he competes for snaps behind James Conner and Jaylen Samuels at tailback this season.
