Steelers have no feature back

Following a woeful run-game performance in 2020, the Steelers are expected to look for a feature back in the 2021 NFL Draft

Dynasty Analysis

As the linked article points out, the Steelers were well short of league-wide rushing attack averages and there's no belief non-free-agent backs Benny Snell, Trey Edmunds, Jaylen Samuels or Anthony McFarland are anything other than complementary pieces while James Conner, as is well known, is a free agent who will not be returning in 2021. As for Conner, the 25-year-old continues to show both flashes and lack of durability but it's the latter which will keep him out of the discussion as a potential featured name at the position following the opening of free agency on March 17th. Certain to find a home, DLF's RB32 will be a risk-on player for the remainder of his career unless he can remain off the trainer's table. As for the Steelers, look for them to target the running back position, potentially providing an upside situation for an existing free-agent or highly drafted rookie.
