THREE REASONS JAMES CONNER IS NOT A ONE-YEAR WONDER
- Conner is a talent in his own right, not “just a guy.”
- The offense and offensive line remain one of the better units in the league.
- The competing talent on the roster in Jaylen Samuels and Benny Snell are overblown.
While some fantasy managers want to make excuses about James Conner’s 2018 success and invent reasons Jaylen Samuels and Benny Snell will overtake Conner, the fact is that Conner is the most talented of the three by a wide margin and will continue to dominate touches and targets in this backfield. The coaching staff is one of the few left in the NFL that seems committed to a featured runner. Despite the absence of Antonio Brown, the offense remains viable with Juju Smith-Schuster stepping forward to take his place. The offensive line, which is one of the better units in the NFL, also has managed to maintain continuity through the offseason. Conner’s current ADP in the late-first to the early-second round of drafts is a great value.
