2020 Fantasy Outlook
Following a rookie season spent on Chicago's practice squad Whyte saw his first game action in 2019, playing in six games for Pittsburgh. He averaged an impressive 5.1 yards per carry, albeit with a limited sample size of just 24 carries. The addition of fourth-round pick Anthony McFarland and free agent Wendall Smallwood to an already crowded backfield that includes James Conner, Benny Snell and Jaylen Samuels will likely result in Whyte having a similarly minimal role this season.

Non-factor on offense
RBPittsburgh Steelers
December 30, 2019
Whyte ran for one yard on three carries in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.
Even with James Conner (quadriceps) inactive, Whyte played a minimal role on offense and finishes the 2019 season with 122 yards on 24 carries in six games. Most of that (84 yards) came in two games in which he also caught his only target for nine yards. The Steelers' backfield is unsettled heading into 2020, but Whyte is unlikely to have a major role.
