Snell looked fine, and Conner never got a chance to start rolling.
The Steelers line blew apart NY defense.
There’s nothing wrong with RBBC IRL, but fantasy priorities are different.
What was a sure thing fantasy RB situation is now as muddled as 28 other teams.

I think as long as Connor can get on the field he's going to be given the chance to "Bell Cow". Though I worry that Connor being in a contract year at some point PITT is going to want to give SNELL a good look to see if they can move on from Connor.

Tomlin is the type that "You don't loose your job cause of injury".

I don't think they are going to bench Conner after 20 minutes of the first game of the season. I think he's the better RB if he stays healthy ... which is a big *if*. For now, I want no part of this situation until we see how it plays out.

All due respect, Conner hasn't been the "better" back since mid season 2019 and if he's benched, it's not solely because of the first game this year.

He hasn't performed as well as Snell has when he was able to stay in games and you can't be better if you cant stay on the field.

I agree that regardless, Snell is going to get a long look sooner than later for the job in 2021, particularly in the passing game. There's a lot of sentimental reasons for them to favor Conner and even I'm a huge fan of his but at some point, the Steelers will move on. Ask Franco Harris who had a bit more capital built than Conner does.

Might want to reconsider your position on Tomlin and injuries impacting a player starting...Mike Tomlin 2018 interview with Steelers Digest....


Q. True or false – a player cannot lose his starting job because of injury?

A. False.

Q. Why do you look at it that way?

A. To deny that as an element of the game is to be unrealistic. When people come in and play great football, you have to acknowledge that. The New England Patriots would not have their dynasty if Tom Brady had not been given an opportunity due to injury. Once they got exposed to what they were looking at, they had no intention of putting Tom Brady back on the bench. There are so many example of that happening, all the way back to Wally Pipp and Lou Gehrig, and so to say that it doesn't exist would be a lie.

At least he didn't draft himself, heh. That would be a little bit weird, but it's not like they are playing for money. Listened to a bit of the FFootballers draft with him in it.

I wonder if people try to get fantasy info from him in his Twitch chat? :lol:

Seems like a snowball's chance in snell that conner stays healthy enough to play more than 4 games this season.
