Yes he started last year week one, but there is true fantasy gold if he sits out. I have picked up Conner late in my draft and I think everyone should be picking him up. For a PPR league, Conner has shown he is a viable three down back. With Bell and all of his nonsense, Pittsburgh may very well not play him. Things could easily blow up, not to mention bell could get hurt and want to sit out because he doesnt want to risk further injury. Theres so many people talking about how you should draft Bell with the second pick, yet I think thats a huge risk. I have found overconfidence is what you see on TV, the doubters are the ones that find the true gold. Anyone else agree?? Update- (Thanks Pee-Diddy) Bells agent commented 9-5-18 https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/leveon-bells-agent-explains-why-steelers-rb-is-holding-out-how-much-time-he-might-miss/ Update- 9-11-18 9:47 pm The Steelers no longer list Le'Veon Bell on the team's official depth chart. It's purely a procedural move, since Bell isn't officially on the roster as he continues his holdout. The Steelers get a roster exemption for Bell, and he doesn't count toward the 53-man unit. James Conner, fresh off his overall RB2 finish Week 1 against the Browns, is listed as the starter and will remain there until Bell ends his holdout, which it's anyone's guess when that will be.
