Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 3 vs TB (15 / 61 / 0 rush, 6 / 5 / 34 / 0 rec)

The running lanes were there. The offensive line was getting good push and each time Conner touched the ball he was showing the ability to get to his spot quickly and turn upfield. With two minutes left in the second quarter Conner had an 18-yard reception keeping the Steelers scoring drive alive. In a close game in the fourth quarter and down three the Steelers trusted Conner to be their closer in the waning minutes. Conner had runs of 27 and 9 yards in the fourth quarter and totaled 48 yards rushing in the second half.

2018 Week 2 vs KC (8 / 17 / 1 rush, 5 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec)

The "Le'Veon Bell treatment" should now be known as the "Steelers Running Back Treatment". The name on the back of the jersey doesn't matter. If they are in the backfield they will see plenty of usage in the rushing and receiving game (even Ryan Switzer). Conner's best run of the day came after two evaded tackles on a 22-yard gain. He also had an Odell Beckham Jr. like fingertip coming down out of bounds but did draw a defensive pass interference. Most importantly, Conner seemed to have regained his for from the first three quarters of Week 1 as he finished strong and ran over two defenders to score a touchdown to start off the second half for the Steelers. After Conner's rushing touchdown in the third quarter he left the game for a full series and was replaced by Stevan Ridley. Conner was able to return to the game in the fourth quarter.

2018 Week 1 vs CLE (31 / 135 / 2 rush, 6 / 5 / 57 / 0 rec)

Conner drew the first start of his career and did not disappoint. To start the game Conner was used just like Le'Veon Bell would be. Conner was physical between the tackles and was consistently breaking off long gains. Conner's receiving ability was the most impressive, and improved, part of Conner's game. His versatility allowed the Steelers to move him around the formation from running back to split out wide receiver. Having the ability to stay versatile early allowed the Steelers to show different looks in the first half. The biggest blemish on Conner's resume from Week 1 was his fourth-quarter fumble allowing the Browns to get back in the game. With 36 total touches (31 carries and 5 receptions on 6 targets) in one game, the Steelers clearly trust James Conner to be their workhorse while Bell is out.
