Conner’s stock rose after the Steelers didn’t really invest much capital into the running back position in the Draft, coming away with fourth-rounder Anthony McFarland. The Steelers are still referring to Conner as their lead back, and when he’s been healthy, he has averaged 18.3 touches for 95 yards and 0.87 touchdowns. The resulting 16.4 PPG (half-PPR) would have tied Austin Ekeler for the seventh-highest average at his position last season. Conner hasn’t proven that he can stay healthy, missing nine games over the last two seasons, so owners should handcuff Benny Snell, if possible.
