Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's not going to win the rushing title or anything and it's very unlikely that he finishes as a top-three fantasy running back, but he's about as safe as they come considering he's been a top-eight running back in each of the last three seasons. There were just four running backs who delivered RB2 or better performances in at least 90 percent of their games: Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, and Gordon.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 upside.

Gordon was 6th among fantasy running backs, despite playing in only 12 games in 2018. He should continue being a bell cow running back on a great offense.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.
