Anthony McFarland Jr. Player Overview

Anthony McFarland has terrific acceleration and can elude tackles, and he does have a home run capability. He is a nightmare for defenders in space. McFarland can take the ball around the corner and has an intense burst through the hole. A tough runner who will battle for yards after contact. McFarland is a threat after the catch. He will need to run lower to the ground but holds well in pass protection. McFarland will have his work cut out for him to garner volume. The Steelers don't regularly use multiple backs, and James Conner is the starter. Throw in competition from Jaylen Samuels, Benny Snell, Trey Edmunds, and perhaps Wendell Smallwood.

Dynasty Spin: Conner has had difficulty staying healthy and is a free agent after this season. Conner's possibility of moving on will open up a slot for McFarland going into the future, but will he ever be a bell-cow? McFarland is going in the late second round to early third in rookie drafts and in the 15th to 16th round in start-ups.
