If Conner were able to stay on the field, he'd be considered as a top-10 running back in fantasy. Unfortunately, he hasn't done that, and it's led them to draft Jaylen Samuels, Benny Snell, and now Anthony McFarland. While none of them are better than Conner, it's likely we see them take some of the workload away from him in 2020.

James Conner reportedly plans to play this season

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports cancer survivor James Conner is not expected to opt out of the 2020 season.

Fantasy Impact

Fellow cancer survivor Marcus Cannon of the New England Patriots opted out on Monday night, which raised the question of whether or not Conner would follow suit. The 25-year-old is playing for a new contract and has a chance to be the Steelers' featured back this year. To some, Conner looks like a screaming value in fantasy drafts as the RB19 in our expert consensus rankings.
