Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner

With Bell gone, Conner becomes the number one option in Pittsburgh’s backfield. Conner was one of the highest scoring fantasy running backs in 2018 until he got hurt in week 13. Now he’ll come into the 2019 season healthy prior to a week 1 matchup against the Patriots. Conner will likely need to produce in the passing game, as he did last season, to have an effective day against New England.
