Pittsburgh Steelers News

Chris Boswell, Another eight-point effort

Boswell made his lone field-goal attempt and all five of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 38-7 win over the Browns.

Analysis: The Steelers were dominant on the scoreboard once again Sunday, and Boswell was a beneficiary as he recorded eight points for a second consecutive week. The 29-year-old converted on a 38-yard field goal in the first quarter for the first points of the game, and he was perfect on his subsequent extra-point attempts. Boswell has established himself as a decent fantasy option behind Pittsburgh's potent offense.

Anthony McFarland Jr., Logs 10 snaps on offense

McFarland rushed three times for two yards while hauling in his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 38-7 win over the Browns.

Analysis: Although the Steelers gained a comfortable lead Sunday, McFarland still saw minimal work in the contest, taking the field for 10 of a possible 65 snaps on offense. Much of the late-game rushing work went to fellow depth option Benny Snell, who scored a touchdown early in the fourth quarter. McFarland was effective with limited touches in his season debut against the Texans in Week 3, but overall the 2020 fourth-rounder has recorded just 63 yards from scrimmage while appearing in three games for Pittsburgh.

Benny Snell Jr., Scores TD in win

Snell rushed six times for 17 yards and a TD while also catching his lone target for four yards in Sunday's 38-7 win over the Browns.

Analysis: Snell's workload has been limited with James Conner fully healthy in recent weeks, but his role has been somewhat consistent as he's touched the ball seven times in each of the Steelers' last three contests. The 22-year-old scored the team's final touchdown in Sunday's blowout win, his first of the season. Snell has seen more work than rookie Anthony McFarland to begin the year, but his playing time has been limited while Conner has been on the field.

James Washington, Re-emerges in win

Washington recorded four receptions on seven targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Browns.

Analysis: Washington emerged as the second receiver in the Steelers' offense in the absence of Diontae Johnson (back). His biggest play of the day came on a 28-yard touchdown pass to to put Pittsburgh up 24-0. In Week 5, Washington managed only three receptions for 25 yards, and it appeared as if he was losing his role in the offense due to the emergence of rookie Chase Claypool. However, if Johnson is unable to return to the field for the team's Week 7 contest against Tennessee, Washington should maintain a decent number of targets.

JuJu Smith-Schuster, Quiet in win

Smith-Schuster recorded two receptions on four targets for six yards in Week 6 against the Browns.

Analysis: The Steelers led the game throughout, limiting Ben Roethlisberger to only 22 pass attempts. While Smith-Schuster matched Chase Claypool and Eric Ebron in targets, he did very little with his opportunity. His longest reception of the day went for just five yards and he was not targeted deep down the field. It's another concerning performance for Smith-Schuster, who has not topped 50 receiving yards since Week 1 against the Giants. With Diontae Johnson (back) likely to return to the field soon and the emergence of rookie Chase Claypool, it appears that Smith-Schuster's days as the Steelers' alpha receiver may have come to a close.
