In 13 games as the lead back last season, Conner turned 20.8 touches into 113.1 yards and 1.0 touchdown per game, resulting in the No. 8 per game average in half-PPR formats. The only question heading into 2019 is his workload. There have been rumblings that the Steelers plan to spread the ball around to their other backs, namely Jaylen Samuels (who is a very good receiver) and rookie Benny Snell, who may spell Conner on early downs. Conner is still deserving of a pick in the late first round, but his workload is not a given.
