Was No. 8 RB in half-PPR PPG and even though I think he'll lose a few more touches to backup J. Samuels this time around, there'll likely be a few more touches to share with WR A. Brown goneHas back-to-back top 2 finishes in FAN PTS at WR - Has most receptions (528) by a player through the first six seasons in NFL - in layman's terms, he's an aerial acrobat with hands like an octopus
Kevin Wheeler
DraftWize
In 2018 Conner had 13 total TDs, 55 receptions, nearly 1,000 rushing yards, and nearly 500 receiving yards, 22 carries+targets per games - and 34% of his carries came against 8+ in the box. @JeffHaseley 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Despite missing 3 games last season, Conner ended with 973/12 rushing and 55/497/1 receiving. The Pittsburgh Steelers RB is THE perennial RB you want to own. Don't buy into the Samuels/Snell noise. Even Rashard Mendenhall had back to back years with over 1350 total scrimmage yards and at least 8 TDs. Conner is much better.Nuk is Nuk, WR1.

Conner will be a workhorse this season. A Steelers workhorse is someone you want. Please don't overthink this. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
When Conner wore down at the end of the 2018 season, did the Steelers get a bit worried? They reached for Benny Snell in the fourth-round of the draft, highlighting they clearly felt running back depth was a need. With Antonio Brown and Jesse James gone, there are over 200 targets that have vacated the team, so it's possible Conner can build upon his strong 2018 season. The slight risk of a timeshare knocks him down into the second round, though he's got top-six upsideThe best hands in football. Hopkins continually makes highlight-worthy grabs on passes that 95 percent of the league couldn't make on their best day. He'll continually see the oppositions best cornerback, but having Will Fuller back will help draw double-coverage away from him. He's now finished as a top-six fantasy receiver in three of the last four seasons, including his first No. 1 finish in 2018

FantasyPros
Through 10 games last year, Conner was a top-tier fantasy back before slowing down and suffering an injury toward the end of the year. He still has that type of potential, of course, with this Steelers offense but there are talks of the workload being split with Jaylen Samuels or Benny Snell which should keep Conner out of the first round of your fantasy drafts.As of now, Hopkins is the consensus #1 receiver off the board. You certainly can't argue with his talent nor his recent production but there is reason to be concerned that he is currently on the PUP. Perhaps more concerning is the fact that both Will Fuller and Keke Coutee will both be healthy so his league-high target share may take a hit. He is still elite, but shouldn't exactly be a slam dunk at pick 6.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
Conner undoubtedly has the talent to be the workhorse back in Pittsburgh, but seems destined to have Jaylen Samuels and Benny Snell eat into the workload. There's still going to be plenty of work going Conner's way and he should be a steady fantasy contributor week in and week out.A pure target monster, Hopkins is one of the safest picks in fantasy football for 2019. If Hopkins and Deshaun Watson can both stay healthy for all 16 games, there's no reason to doubt Hopkins' ability to be a Top 5 WR when it's all said and done.

Fantasy Football Advice
Conner averaged 19.6 half PPR points per game last season. It's worth noting that he averaged 23.5 points per game over his first 8 weeks, then just 12.8 points per game over his final 5. He also had 5 100+ yard rushing performances in those first 8 weeks, then exactly zero games over 65 rushing yards over the last 5 weeks. Part of this was likely due to injuries, but part is also the varience of TD's. He scored 10 TD's over those first 8 weeks, then 3 over his final 5. The 13 total TD's in 13 games is going to regress, and he's now likely to see less of an opportunity share with the emergence of Jaylen Samuels. Furthermore, the offense as a whole is likely to regress in the post AB era. They were 4th in both plays per game and TD's per game last season, both of which are likely to drop this season. Conner isn't a bad pick, there are just so many other good picksI always try to target running backs in the first round of drafts, but Hopkins is one of the few wide receivers I will make an exception for. He's been over 1,200 yards in 4 of the past 5 seasons, and has AVERAGED 170 targets over the last 4. Since 2014 he's been the WR 14/4/29/1/2 in half PPR scoring. He's an absolute target monster, and I have no problem if you want to take him as the top WR off the board. His TD upside is also massive, as he lead all players with 15 targets inside the 10 yard line last season.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Conner should be the lead back in Pittsburgh in 2019 and as long as he can stay healthy, he should have RB1 value behind one of the best offensive lines in the NFL.Hopkins had 115 receptions for 1,572 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2018 and he should be among the most dangerous receivers in the NFL in 2019 with 3rd year QB Deshaun Watson throwing him the ball.
