    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner rushed five times for 57 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

    Huddle Up: If you are a Le'Veon Bell owner, grabbing Conner as a handcuff isn't a bad idea. He could step into a workhorse role if Bell misses time for whatever reason.

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner was 'very impressive during the spring' and 'really looks like he can be a solid every down running back in this league,' according to Mark Kaboly of The Athletic.

    Huddle Up: No one is going to confuse Conner for Bell, but everyone from Ben Roethlisberger to the coaching staff has sung the praises of the second-year back this year. With Bell likely done in Pittsburgh after this season, the 23-year-old's fantasy dynasty value just got a nice little boost. While he figures to have little to no redraft fantasy value if Le'Veon Bell doesn't hold out, Conner can make a strong case for being the most valuable handcuff in the league.

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee) has been practicing during OTAs, and TE Jesse James said Conner looks more confident this year. 'He's running fast, running every ball to the end zone,' James said. 'He looks good.'

    Huddle Up: It sounds like Conner has fully recovered from knee surgery, and he is worth stashing as a handcuff if you are a Le'Veon Bell owner.

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee) said he has progressed to the point where he can sprint on the treadmill. 'So things are looking bright for next year,' Conner said.

    Huddle Up: If Pittsburgh's backfield situation remains the same in 2018, Conner will be worth stashing as a handcuff to Le'Veon Bell.

    Pittsburgh Steelers rookie RB James Conner is listed as the No. 2 running back behind RB Fitzgerald Touissant on the Steelers' latest depth chart.

    Huddle Up: This, of course, does not take into account the presence of one Le'Veon Bell. Upon Bell's return, Conner will assume the No. 3 position. That is, if he hasn't supplanted Touissant yet. For now, Conner is merely a late-round sleeper and viable handcuff for Bell.

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner rushed for 98 yards on 20 carries in the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Aug. 20.

    Huddle Up: Conner may be the leading candidate for the No. 2 running back job at this point and could work with the starters in the third preseason game. He has a chance be an option in the late rounds of drafts because Le'Veon Bell has an injury history.
