Todman totaled eight yards on two carries in the Steelers' win over the Browns on Sunday. Todman only saw touches on Pittsburgh's final drive of the game. He now has four carriers on the season and continues to have no fantasy value.
Todman ran once for three yards in the Steelers' 38-35 win against the Raiders on Sunday. The loss of Le'Veon Bell (knee) moved all running backs up a notch on the depth chart, with Todman slotting in behind starter DeAngelo Williams. As a result, Todman got one carry, and now has two rushes for 14 yards on the season. Just as Williams fantasy value was predicated on the health of Bell, Todman would seem to only has value if Williams gets hurt.
Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Todman will be the Steelers' No. 2 running back behind DeAngelo Williams in Sunday's game against the Raiders, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Todman has far more experience than fellow running backs Dri Archer and Isaiah Pead, so he will slot in as the backup behind Williams, who will take over as the starter with LeVeon Bell (knee) out for the season. Todman is not much of a threat to Williams' workload, but he figures to see a few snaps each game in an effort to keep the veteran Williams healthy and fresh the rest of the way.
With Le'Veon Bell having suffered a season-ending knee injury, Todman, Dri Archer and newcomer Isaiah Pead slot in as the Steelers' depth options behind DeAngelo Williams, who is slated to fill in for Bell going forward. Todman has just one carry this season, so there's no need to rush to the waiver wire here, but it will be worth noting how the team's backfield snaps are divided up in Week 9's game against the Raiders, with an eye toward identifying the team's likely preferred option in the event of an injury to Williams.
The Steelers agreed to a contract with running back Jordan Todman, the team announced Sunday. Todman rushed for 186 yards and one touchdown on 32 attempts last season.
