Where does this guys dynasty stock stand among RB going into next season? Obv among the top 10 but where would you place him? Been wondering about it and since we are talking about backup RBs i figured i'd throw it out there.

Zeke or Conner ROS ?

Wow great question.  Zeke is great but I give a slight edge to Conner due to superior coaching staff and surounding cast.

it was a fake concussuon orchestrsted by the Rooneys to save face in case Bell reported  - Teflon Tomlin (aka Mush Mouth Mike, aka Marble Mouf Mike) fully complicit, as well.

How would that have helped the Rooneys?

Going to have to pay close attention during the offseason. Won't at all be surprised if Steelers target RB in the draft, and if it's a high draft pick I'd pay real close attention to pre-season. That being said, I'd bet you'd see at least one more season with Conner being the lead back, but we'll see.

Yeah he’s good to go

 

Source? I also found it odd that I couldn't find anything explicitly saying he cleared it. Just that the Steelers removed him from the injury report.

 

Which I thought didn't matter since the league needs to clear him?

You think the Steelers will draft a RB to replace a top 3 rusher in the NFL?

Exactly.

 

The Steelers cap situation isn't all that great. They still have control over Connor for at least two more seasons at an absolute bargain of a price. They could and should use their draft capital and salary in other positions of need on defense.

Agreed. I think they'll use the AB/1st Rounder to target Jamal Williams, he's done in GB.

The Steelers might be able to put a package together to land CJ Prosise from Seattle.  Maybe a 1st rounder, a 2nd rounder, Joe Haden, Big Ben, and a conditional 5th.  Since, as an organization, they are going to be trying to make it a huge priority to upgrade from JAGmes Conner.

I just read an interesting tidbit that the Steelers will be able to carry over Bell's 14.5 million cap hit this season to next year as a credit. Once Le'veon signs a deal with another team, the Steelers essentially gain a credit of 14.5 million for cap purposes (one year only).

 

It's crazy how poorly this situation has been reported by the ESPNs of the world.....seems every day a really important piece of info is unveiled.

 

Pretty shoddy journalism to this point.

Tempering expectations today. Leonard back, Jags D at home, not the greatest game script for Conner I dont think. 

thats alright, even a down game for Conner is still good.  I'll still take 80 total yards from scrimmage a couple receptions and a TD for the day.
