Ed Bouchette of The Athletic believes the Steelers will "cut back" James Conner's carries in 2020. (The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact:

Conner is coming off an injury-riddled 2019 season in which he appeared in just 10 games. Benny Snell and Jaylen Samuels are still on the roster and Pittsburgh also drafted Anthony McFarland in the fourth round. Conner is just a season removed from being a pro bowler but it is clear that the Steelers want a contingency plan for the contract-year running back. Conner should start the season as Pittsburgh's top RB but fantasy players should expect him to have a short leash.
