Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (concussion) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and said he feels good. Conner declined to say if he even suffered a concussion in last Thursday's game. With Le'Veon Bell now officially out of the picture for the rest of the year, Conner is locked into the workhorse role the rest of the way. He's been a strong RB1 this year and will remain so moving forward.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner heads to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars in Week 11. Conner will be locked-in as the team's workhorse running back for the rest of the season after Le'Veon Bell failed to report to the Steelers by the Tuesday deadline. Jacksonville has been tough against running backs this season but Conner's involvement in the passing game keeps his floor high, even in difficult matchups. Treat Conner as a solid RB1 for his Week 11 game.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol, but head coach Mike Tomlin said that Conner will be given an opportunity to practice on Wednesday, which should "lay those discussions to bed." Barring a setback, Conner should be good to go for Week 11 against the Jaguars. With Le'Veon Bell now unlikely to report on Tuesday, it looks like Conner will remain the team's lead back for the rest of the season. He has been a strong RB1 for fantasy owners all year.
