The 2020 NFL season got off to a slow start for Conner following an underwhelming outing in the opener. Fortunately, he has since managed to bounce back with his second consecutive 100-yard, one-touchdown performance.
It is safe to say that Conner has done a solid job of quelling any talk of Pittsburgh going with a backfield by committee since Benny Snell has been relegated back to his change-of-pace role. This has helped pay huge dividends for their balanced approach on offense and the passing game with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Conner also flashed his prowess as a receiver out of the backfield with four receptions for 40 yards.
