Free-agent RB James Conner (Steelers) agreed to a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, April 13. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Conner and Chase Edmonds figure to serve as a committee, and any steam that Edmonds had this offseason has fizzled with this move. Both will be low-end RB2/high-end RB3 candidates in fantasy.

Free-agent RB James Conner (Steelers) is scheduled to meet with the Arizona Cardinals Monday, April 12.

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB James Conner may receive interest from the Miami Dolphins during free agency.
Huddle Up: Conner has struggle with injuries during his NFL career and finished with 721 yards and six touchdowns this past season. He probably would receive a majority of the carries if he signed with the Dolphins and could be at least a No. 3 fantasy back.

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB James Conner is not likely to be re-signed in the offseason.
Huddle Up: The good: Conner has rushed for 4.3 yards per carry in 532 rushes in his career. He also has 22 rushing touchdowns over the last three years. However, he has not completed a full season in his career. He had 55 catches three years ago, but he really hasn't been able to repeat it through the air. He's RB2 material wherever he lands, but he'll be better to have in non-PPR leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner ran five times for 20 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts, and he added five reception for 45 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great fantasy performance, but the touchdown and receptions were nice. With the AFC North wrapped up, it's uncertain if it will be Conner or Benny Snell carrying the load in Week 17 in Cleveland. DFS players will want to pay close attention to that.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (quadriceps) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and he does not carry an injury designation for Week 16 vs. the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: In the last five weeks, Indianapolis ranks as a positive opponent, but that's because of the DeForest Buckner-less game in which Derrick Henry ran for three TDs. The reality is this group remains one of the tougher opponents for the position, and King Henry is the only back to rush for more than 72 yards vs. this unit in 2020. Since Conner is a capable receiver out of the backfield, he has a sliver of potential, but gamers should consider him little better than a last-resort PPR flex.

Huddle Up: Conner appears to be on track for the Week 16 game after sitting out the last game because of the injury. He has not posted great numbers during the second half of the season but can still be a flex option in leagues.
