Draft note
by John Paulsen
Conner’s stock rose after the Steelers didn’t really invest much capital into the running back position in the Draft, coming away with fourth-rounder Anthony McFarland. The Steelers are still referring to Conner as their lead back, and when he’s been healthy, he has averaged 18.3 touches for 95 yards and 0.87 touchdowns. The resulting 16.4 PPG (half-PPR) would have tied Austin Ekeler for the seventh-highest average at his position last season. Conner hasn’t proven that he can stay healthy, missing nine games over the last two seasons, so owners should handcuff Benny Snell, if possible.

PIT RB James Conner - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at New York Jets
James Conner returned last week, playing 58 percent (24 snaps) of the offensive snaps and carrying the ball eight times for 42 yards and catching four passes for nine yards and a score. The touchdown was his team-high seventh in just nine games this season, so he's been a pretty consistent scorer. The Jets allow just 3.3 yards per carry, but have given up 82 running back receptions, allowing 13 total touchdowns to the position. Conner should excel in the passing game and is the Steelers' best bet to score. He's a solid RB2 play this week.
