Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Throughout Mike Tomlin's long tenure as a head coach, he's always preferred to use a workhorse back over an RBBC. Even when Fitzgerald Toussaint and DeAngelo Williams were filling in for Le'Veon Bell a few years back, they could expect a full workload. Conner's talent has never been the question - he's a solid if unspectacular player who can certainly take advantage of the great situation in Pittsburgh. The problem for Conner is his inability to stay on the field, and while he should be very good when healthy, he's one of the bigger injury risks at his position. 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
With Le'Veon Bell sitting out all of '18, Conner made the Pro Bowl after racking up nearly 1,500 yards from scrimmage despite missing three December games with an ankle injury. Injuries in 2019 limited him to 99 total yards over three games after October. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
What an awful season 2019 proved to be for those who drafted James Conner in the first round of drafts. Big Ben was injured, the offense fell apart, Conner's body fell apart and other backs like Benny Snell, Jaylen Samuels and even Kerrith Whyte (who oddly didn't look too bad) swarmed in. With Ben back, Conner ripped like a flying squirrel and another RB in 4th rounder Anthony McFarland in the mix, 2020 has turned into a real crap shoot. With a 4th round price tag though, Conner might just be worth the risk as an upside gamble returning to a good offense where he should be the lead back.The Antonio Brown rumours will continue to rumble until he signs with a team. The other question is how many games the league will allow him to play. It seems entirely possible Brown plays eight games and given his talent, that could easily make him a league winner. He's a great late round stash if you have a sufficiently deep bench.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If Conner were able to stay on the field, he'd be considered as a top-10 running back in fantasy. Unfortunately, he hasn't done that, and it's led them to draft Jaylen Samuels, Benny Snell, and now Anthony McFarland. While none of them are better than Conner, it's likely we see them take some of the workload away from him in 2020. 
Rob Wilson
The Fantasy Footballers
The leading man in the Steel city, and the forgotten man who was a top ten pick last season. Perfect RB2 pick 
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
He's an RB1 when healthy, but that's the concern. Still, I'd be OK with him as my #2 RB with that potential. 
Frank Bonincontri
Fantasy Wire HQ
Conner will have to stay effective, healthy and productive to fend off the field in Pittsburgh. 
Dalton Kates
APEX Fantasy Leagues
Conner enters a team which should see massive positive regression back towards one of the best offenses in the league. Was a true workhorse last time he was on the field, but draft pick McFarland along with Snell could keep this a committee. Conner has proven to do well in the NFL even though his athletic profile doesn't necessarily give him the upside we are looking for. 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
7th among RBs in FAN PPG over past 2 seasons (better than Cook, Henry, Mixon, to name a few), but in a prove-it season health wise - figure he's playing for his future in PIT 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Many people consider 2019 to be a bad season for Conner but before getting hurt, he was averaging over 14 points per game. Now, Ben Roethlisberger is slated to return and the Steelers offense of old could be coming back together. Getting a piece of that in the 3rd-4th round is terrific value. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
If Conner stays healthy this year, he's almost certainly going to be a draft-day bargain. Through Week 7, before his season was derailed by injury, he was on pace for more than 1400 total yards and 14 touchdowns. Mike Tomlin has come out and essentially stated that Conner is going to be a workhorse back, and he may get even more work in the receiving game if Ben Roethlisberger doesn't push it downfield as much as he used to after elbow surgery. In other words, it's just health with Conner. If he has it, he should be no worse than an extremely strong RB2 in half- or full-PPR leagues. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
People are quick to write Conner off, but injuries are the only difference from this season to last where he was being drafted as a first-round pick. In fact, Big-Ben is back, so Conner should have more running lanes than he did last season when he excelled. From weeks 1-8 last season, Conner saw almost 18 touches per game, was sixth among RBs in fantasy points per snap, and forced the second-most missed tackles on receptions. He's also played at least 10 games every year of his career and is an RB1 whenever he's on the field. He's easily worth the third round pick. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Conner's a dicey pick, but that seems to be built into his ADP right now. If everything goes his way this season, Conner will drastically outperform where he's being drafted right now. However, we just simply don't know at this point whether or not he's going to remain healthy for all 16 games. In fact, I might bet against that happening. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Talented grinder, great scheme, and somehow avoided any major competition this offseason despite making it through a grand total of 2 games in 2019. While I have 0 faith in his ability to stay healthy, Conner has all the makings of a major RB1 for however long he lasts.Who knows if he'll play and if he'll be suspended if so , but this is where I'd take the best ball stab to find out
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Conner went from 1,470 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns in 2018 to 715 yards from scrimmage and 7 touchdowns in 2019. The big issue for me is durability, Conner has RB1 talent, but missed 3 games in 2018 and 6 games last year. He has a lot of upside due to his ability, but a lot of downside due to his durability.
