Draft note
by John Paulsen
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.

PIT RB James Conner - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Seattle Seahawks
James Conner got just 10 carries for 21 yards last week but salvaged the day with four catches for 44 yards. Offensive coordinator Randy admitted he probably got away from using Conner too early in the loss to the Patriots, so look for that to change this week, even though the Seahawks did a nice job last week shutting down the Bengals' running game. Conner should get between 15-20 touches in this game, including in the passing game, making him a low-end RB1 play this week in a tough matchup.
