After re-signing JuJu, I think it's now even less likely the Steelers sign Conner to another contract. He could end up at best in a timeshare with a new team. I'm not sure he'll be fantasy relevant or not in 2021.

Durability is a huge concern with Conner, he has started only 21 of 32 games the last two years. He is also a free agent, which means his situation will have to be monitored this off-season. If he is the starter in Pittsburgh, he would have flex appeal on a team that struggled to run the ball in 2020.

Pittsburgh's running game went totally off the rails in 2020 with the lowest yards per carry in the NFL. James Conner has shown his talent so he's hard to blame, especially after he convincingly outplayed Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland. In a new setting he may well become a fantasy stud again, but it's a total lottery whether he'll end up in a position where that's possible.
