Coach describes Dri Archer as 'ace in the hole'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Steelers receivers coach Richard Mann told the official team website that rookie running back Dri Archer has already made strides as a receiving threat on top of working as a change-of-pace back on handoffs. 

"We feel like he can be our ace in the hole, or the joker, since we can use him in various positions," Mann said. "We can move him around. We can utilize his running ability by lining him up as a running back, and he also has receiving skills. I think it's up to coach (Todd) Haley and the offensive staff to put him in places where he can succeed. I think he's going to be a weapon for us."

Archer tallied 10 total touchdowns and 854 total yards on less than 100 touches at Kent State last season.

Dri Archer says he'll have 'a big role'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Steelers rookie running back Dri Archer told the Akron Beacon Journal that he's going to have "a big role" in the offense this season, even if he isn't sure what it will entail. 

"I'm not sure," Archer said of what his role will be. "It's going to be a big role, but I'm just going to do whatever I'm asked to do. Play receiver, play running back, helping special teams. Whatever they want me to do, I'm going to do it."

Archer could see time in the slot as well as in the backfield but is unlikely to unseat Le'Veon Bell or LeGarrette Blount as key running backs in the Steelers offense. 

In 10 games last season with Kent State, Archer tallied 10 total touchdowns and 854 total yards on 68 carries and 25 catches.
