James Conner, Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

On the chance that Le’Veon Bell decides to go through with his contract holdout into the season – and it does appear that’s where we’re heading towards – the Steelers are more than prepared to go forward with Conner. At 6-1, 233 lbs., he will be a big freight train on the loose if he can get out of the backfield. Cleveland’s defense is a solid bunch, one of only seven teams to hold teams under 100.0 rushing yards per game, but interestingly, of the running backs that had success against Gregg Williams’ defense last year, it was the big, punishing work horses that found the end zone and the yards to weigh down the box score. – Ernie Estrella
