WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Fitzgerald Toussaint | Steelers RB

Fitzgerald Toussaint handles seven touches in Week 17 win.

Toussaint rushed five times for 22 yards and caught two passes for nine yards as the change-of-pace to Steven Ridley. The former Michigan back probably won't see many (if any) offensive touches in the postseason, but he will have an impact on special teams.

The Steelers have signed Fitzgerald Toussaint to their practice squad.

Toussaint was cut by Pittsburgh, but they are able to bring him back as insurance for Le'Veon Bell. He would be behind both James Conner and Terrell Watson should anything happen to the superstar back.

The Steelers have released Fitzgerald Toussaint.

Toussaint looked like the starter to begin preseason action with Le'Veon Bell out, but Pittsburgh decided to only keep three backs and Terrell Watson got the final spot behind Bell and James Conner. Another team should give Toussaint a look fairly soon, but it would be a surprise if he had any fantasy value in 2017.

Fitzgerald Toussaint leaves Steelers' third preseason game with an injury.

Tousaint left the game with a leg injury, but it appears to be a very minor injury. He curiously didn't get much action on offense after previously working as the starter with Le'Veon Bell holding out. Toussaint had one reception for three yards in the game.

Fitzgerald Toussaint starts in Week 2 preseason game for the Steelers.

With Le'Veon Bell still a no show, Toussaint started the game against the Falcons. He rushed twice for six yards and caught one pass for eight yards. Rookie James Conner (20 carries) then took almost all of the work from there. Toussaint will probably only have fantasy value if Bell holds out into the regular season and he remains the starter ahead of Conner n Bell's absence.

Fitzgerald Toussaint doesn't find much room to run in Steelers preseason game.

Toussaint had six carries for 19 yards while starting and playing in the first quarter. Teammates Terrell Watson and Knile Davis were able to to more damage with their carries, but they'll all get opportunities if Le'Veon Bell keeps holding out. The rookie James Connor is probably the favorite for the backup job behind Bell, though.
