News: 2 days agoConner carried the ball 16 times for 71 yards and caught his only target for zero yards in Sunday's 37-14 win over the Browns.

Spin: With Chase Edmonds playing through a shoulder injury and the Cards jumping out to a big early lead, Conner saw a big workload and set a new season high in rushing yards, although his TD streak ended at three games. The duo should remain in a timeshare in Week 7 against the Texans, who just got trampled by the Colts' Jonathan Taylor, but if Edmonds is healthier Conner may need another score to be worth an active roster spot in shallower fantasy formats.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Conner signed with Arizona after spending his first four seasons with the Steelers. The 2017 third-round pick has missed at least three games each of the past three seasons and a total of 14 in his career. The Pitt product peaked with an RB6 fantasy finish in 2018, but he plummeted outside the top 25 each of the past two seasons. The 26-year-old is solid as both a rusher (career 4.3 YPC, 1.8 YAC) and receiver (6.3 YPT), but figures to focus primarily on the former as he takes over Kenyan Drake's role in Arizona. Drake ranked seventh among RBs in carries, eighth in rush TDs and third in carries inside the 5-yard line in 2020. Conner will defer most passing-down work to Chase Edmonds, but his new role keeps him in the RB3/flex mix.
