James Conner hits free agency

Steelers running back James Conner is now a free agent.

Dynasty Analysis

Conner had a dominant RB1 season when Le'Veon Bell sat out the year back in 2018. However, since that point, he's battled numerous injuries, had some spotty performances and has simply looked far from a dominant piece of an offense. Still, Conner has been able to muster a solid 4.3 yards per carry average in his career, despite the obvious run blocking woes of the Steelers. It's unclear if Pittsburgh wants him back, but it would be a surprise at this point since they have younger runners on the roster who have at least shown as much as Conner has recently. Conner's landing spot will be an interesting one as teams will likely view him as a committee runner. However, there's still an outside chance he could be used as a primary first and second down back and that's enough for his owners to be very interested in what happens next. Landing on a team like the Jets or Bills could be a best case scenario. Conner is currently found as our RB26 and that seems very likely to change one way or another here soon. Still, he's going to have to prove he can stay healthy before owners pencil him into their lineups long-term.
