Stock Watch: What to do if you drafted Le'Veon Bell

Many fantasy managers are turning their eyes to James Conner in Week 1. Is that really a good idea? AP

James Conner seems likely to start at running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday in Cleveland because Le'Veon Bell likely will not. That, my fantasy friends, is all we really know for sure on the day that the 2018 regular season begins with the Super Bowl champions hosting a party in Philadelphia. Pretending we know more that that and making actionable moves with consequences because of those assumptions is likely vast overreaction. As we tackle our first in-season Stock Watch, it might not be the majority opinion to note this, but little has changed for me when it comes to either Bell or Conner.
