Should Le'Veon Bell sustain yet another injury, the Steelers have not been shy about running their backup into the ground. Conner would be in an ideal role to see RB1 opportunities in those games, and seeing how often Bell has missed time, Conner may be worth a late-round gamble.

James Conner returns to practice

Pittsburgh Steelers beat writer Ed Bouchette is reporting running back James Conner (AC Joint) returned to practice Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Conner returned to practice for the first time in nine days. He suffered a sprained AC Joint during the early portion of training camp. Barring another setback, the third round pick in April's draft is in line to open the 2017 season as Le'Veon Bell's primary handcuff.
