James Conner: Steelers expected to draft RB

Ed Bouchette of The Athletic said he "fully expects" the Steelers to draft a running back in the 2020 NFL Draft with James Conner entering the final year of his current contract. (The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact:

The team could certainly still extend Conner ahead of the new season, but they could also be content with drafting a potential replacement given the current landscape of running back contracts. Conner has dealt with injury issues through his years in the league, but he has shown the ability to post RB1-totals when healthy and receiving a full workload. If the team spends a high pick on a running back it could signal more of a split backfield, which wouldn't be good news for Conner's fantasy value. For now, Conner is the RB22 in our expert consensus rankings.
