Le'Veon Bell has made many Steelers fans, and fantasy owners, extremely upset. 

It might not be the window you're wanting to look through, but Bell's absence creates opportunity. It's not like the Steelers are going to throw it more than they already do. All it means is James Conner has become a real threat to defenses. 

The second-year running back could be in for some big weeks if Bell's holdout continues.

​​He isn't just a cool story. He's someone who's actually extremely talented. 

Conner has proven time and again he deserves a chance to get touches. While it's unreasonable to think he should get a ton of touches while Le'Veon Bell is around, the superstar has paved a path for Conner to succeed here. 

Bell was expected to return by Labor Day but hasn't yet. With the start of the season only a week away, no one knows what's in store for him or the future. 

​​We've seen backup running backs come in and thrive while Bell has been out in the past. Conner can be the next player to succeed in his absence.
