Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back James Conner is having a great game against the Atlanta Falcons. I hope you put him in your fantasy starting lineup today. He has carried the ball for 110 rushing yards for 2 rushing touchdowns and four receptions for 75 receiving yards on 21 attempts.
Conner has stepped in while Pro Bowl running back Le’Veon Bell has been holding out and wanting a new contract. Earlier this week Bell told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler that he expects to end his holdout during the Steelers bye which is in week seven and play against the Browns in week eight. The Steelers beat the Falcons 41-17 on Sunday at home. Next up for the Steelers are their division rivals the Cincinnati Bengals in Cincinnati.
Le’Veon Bell expects to report to the Steelers during the Week 7 bye, a source told @ESPN. Bell definitely plans to play football for the Steelers this season.
