Who should start for the Pittsburgh Steelers: James Conner or Le'Veon Bell?

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a bit of a running back controversy. On one hand, you have James Conner, who is having a career year for the team in the backfield and thriving in a productive offense. On the other hand, you have the incumbent running back Le'Veon Bell, a proven workhouse who has been one of the best running backs in the entire league. Who is the better starter? 🏈

Le'Veon who? The only party hurt by this holdout has been the All-Pro running back. The Steelers have found their new workhouse and for a fraction of cost!

As of Week 10, Conner is second in the league in rushing yards and total yards from scrimmage. He's also fourth in the league in total touchdowns. It's becoming obvious Bell's production was a product of the team rather than his own individual talent. Since Conner doesn't give Steelers management and fans a headache, he is by far the better option.

Conner is doing well now, but what's going to happen in next year? Two years? He's still an unproven commodity. But Bell isn't.

The All-Pro running back has shown again and again he can be depended on to carry a workload larger than any current running back and thrive. He's only had fewer than 1,200 yards from scrimmage once in his career and that was because of injury. This is one of the most talented backs to play in the league and many front office people would rather have that than a gamble in Conner.
