Snell rushed five times for 20 yards while failing to secure his lone target in Sunday's 27-19 win over the Broncos. Snell had rushed for just one yard across the first four weeks of the year, but he was more involved against Denver and played a season-high 13 offensive snaps while Najee Harris dealt with cramping. However, the 2019 fourth-rounder should return to a minimal role if Harris is back to full health for Sunday's Week 6 matchup against Seattle.
Snell recorded one carry for zero yards and failed to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Packers. Snell played a season-high eight offensive snaps against Green Bay, but he failed to record any yardage in the loss. The 23-year-old has had a minimal role on offense behind rookie Najee Harris, who played 80 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps in Week 4.
Snell recorded two carries for one yard in Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Raiders. Snell was utilized exclusively on special teams in last week's season opener, and he saw minimal offensive work in Week 2. Rookie running back Najee Harris played 95 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps Sunday after he was on the field for every snap last week, so Snell's playing time should remain limited.
Snell logged 19 special-teams snaps during Sunday's 23-16 win over the Bills. Snell failed to see any snaps on offense, as rookie running back Najee Harris was on the field for 100 percent of the team's plays. Though Snell currently sits second on the depth chart, Harris' three-down skill set will likely make it hard for the veteran to see enough action to maintain fantasy relevance.
Snell carried the ball eight times for 28 yards and also recorded one reception on one target for four yards in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers. Snell had not participated in any of the team's preseason contests to this point and also missed significant periods of practice due to a lower body injury. He was the first back on the field for Pittsburgh -- Najee Harris did not play -- and participated on offense at various points in every quarter. The highlight of Snell's performance came midway through the second quarter, when he ripped off a 17-yard run. Snell's inability to stay on the field during training camp has him on the roster bubble, though he could also enter the regular season as the primary backup to Harris.
