Benjamin was on the field for exactly one offensive snap in Week 10 after converting his one target in 15 yards the week prior. Rookie sixth-rounder Keaontay Ingram has hardly been used any more than that, but he will operate as the immediate Conner backup for now.
ARI RB James Conner - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 3 vs. Dallas Cowboys
James Conner had a nice game last week against the Giants, gaining 106 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. The Cardinals got out to a nice lead early in the game, although they crumbled in the second half and wound up with their second loss of the young season. Conner’s usage is encouraging, however, with 37 carries through two games. He also caught five balls in Week 1, albeit for a mere eight yards.
This week, Conner faces a tough Dallas defense that just held the Jets’ trio of running backs to a total of 24 yards on 10 carries in a blowout. Expect a rough day for the Cardinals if they can’t keep it close against the surging Cowboys. Conner’s potential for a full workload makes him worth considering in fantasy, but we have him ranked as a low-end RB2 because of the matchup.
