James Conner expects Steelers to spread out backfield work
Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner expects the offense to "spread out" backfield touches "pretty evenly."
Conner handled monster workloads when health allowed last year, but injuries and the late-season emergence of Jaylen Samuels may lead to more of a two-way split in 2019. The Steelers reportedly experimented with two-back formations in OTAs.
numberFire's models believe Conner will record 1,039.3 rushing yards, 498.0 receiving yards, and 10.76 touchdowns next season. He's the RB9 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
