ESPN Fantasy Projection: Conner returns as the lead back in Pittsburgh, but durability has become a significant concern for a player who has missed at least two games in each of his three NFL seasons. Despite missing three games in 2018, Conner broke out with 1,462 yards and 13 TDs on 269 touches en route to finishing sixth among running backs in fantasy points. He sat ninth at the position through Week 8 last season, but injuries limited him to 54 snaps the rest of the season. A return to full health by Conner and Ben Roethlisberger very well could lead to a bounce-back campaign for the 25-year-old, though he'll need to fend off Benny Snell Jr., Jaylen Samuels and rookie Anthony McFarland Jr. for touches. Consider Conner a flex option.
