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 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Atlanta Falcons
James Conner found the end zone last week for the third straight game, and he finished with 120 yards on 22 touches, including seven receptions. Conner has been stellar since mid-season, scoring seven of his eight touchdowns over the past six games. He’s also racking up targets, with 20 over the last three outings.
This week, Conner has a pretty good matchup against the Falcons, who rank 19th in aFPA to opposing running backs. He’s a must-start, assuming he’s active after an illness left him out of practice on Wednesday. Keep an eye on the inactives, but if he’s good to go, we have him ranked as a solid RB1 option.
