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.

James Conner expects to have similar role this season

James Conner says his role this year should be similar to what it was in 2018.

Fantasy Impact

Conner erupted in 2018, totaling 1,470 yards and 13 touchdowns. There have been reports that Jaylen Samuels and Benny Snell could eat into Conner's workload this year, but the Pitt alum should still be viewed as a high-end RB1 in fantasy.
