I think he's a good RB in a great situation. I don't see why he won't continue to be the starter in Pitt for the next few years. I'd gladly move a 2021 1st for him.

I’m pretty low on Conner but I’d give up a 2021 1st for him without much hesitation, unless I was in an extended rebuild and expected that pick to be early.

He’s definitely a sell IMO, but not for a single First that’s 1.5 years out
TEAM A - 12 teams (2018 champ, 2017 R/U)
BREES, Jimmy G, Rivers, Haskins, Dalton, Keenum
COOK/JACOBS/GURLEY, Shady, Gio, Gallman, Ollison, D Washington, M Davis, Laird, Scarlett, Ware, Rodney A
NUK/HILL/EVANS/GOLLADAY/K ALLEN, Edelman, Alshon, Sammy, P Campbell, Wims, Dez, Hardy
KITTLE, Waller, Herndon, Sternberger, J Graham, Eifert
Not listing my IDP, but they matter as much as offense in this league
TEAM B - 32 teams, double copy - TEs get slight bump in scoring (1st year league, tanking this year to build through 2020 draft)
DARNOLD, Carr, Rosen, Eli, Tyrod
SAQUON/MIXON, Hines, Gallman, L Miller
KITTLE/NJOKU, Ian Thomas, James O
Danielle Hunter and then a bunch of stashes for IDP

I don't like Conner at all, but I would do this trade simply because I'm confident I could flip him for a very solid profit over '21 1st given his value amongst most people.

Unless this was a top-5 2020 pick, I'd move it for Conner. Random 2021 1st? Give me the RB in the great situation.
