Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner rushed 16 times for a game-high 71 yards in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns while also adding a catch for no gain on his only target.
Huddle Up: Conner was back in familiar territory in a stadium he played annually as a member of the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers. He looked good, averaging 4.4 yards per carry, although he couldn't get into the end zone. He remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Houston Texans in a very favorable matchup.

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner ran for 29 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries and caught his only target for eight yards in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Conner needed less than six minutes to find the end zone, but that was essentially the highlight of his day against a San Francisco defense that made life miserable for just about every Arizona player. While his two-game streak of two rushing touchdowns came to an end in this one, Conner still has five scores to his name in the last three games and a solid grasp on goal-line work. Consider him a high-upside, low-floor flex option in Week 6 versus the Cleveland Browns.

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: With fellow running back Chase Edmonds dealing with a shoulder injury, Conner could be in line for a big role in Week 5. He draws a tough matchup against San Francisco, but he should at least be a useful flex play if he leads the backfield.

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner rushed 18 times for 50 yards and two touchdowns and caught two passes for 16 yards in a 37-20 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Conner is splitting carries with Chase Edmonds, but it appears Conner is first in line for touches near the goal line, His touchdown upside makes him a weekly flex option.

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner registered 11 carries for 43 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he also had one score for 10 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: The scores were his first two NFC touchdowns, and it was easily his most productive day since joining the Cardinals. From a fantasy perspective, he remains more of a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues. Arizona travels to Los Angeles to meet the Rams in Week 4.

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner carried eight times for 26 yards in Week 2 versus the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Conner entered this season with some sleeper appeal because he had some theoretical touchdown upside in one of the best offenses in the league. Instead, he has been an equal backfield partner to Chase Edmonds in terms of carries with zero involvement in the passing game. He also has virtually no touchdown upside because Kyler Murray is handling the ball so often near the goal line. Conner may not be drop-worthy yet in most leagues, but he belongs on fantasy benches for the foreseeable future.

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner ran 16 times for 53 yards in his team debut in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Conner had 16 carries to 12 for Chase Edmonds, but the latter averaged 5.3 yards per carry to just 3.3 for Conner. The two are likely to remain in a timeshare, but Edmonds was way more useful from a fantasy perspective in this one. The Cardinals host the Vikings in Week 2.

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Aug. 16.
Huddle Up: The usage of Conner and Chase Edmonds will be one to pay close attention to in camp. Conner is more between the tackles than Edmonds, and both figure to be RB3 options with Edmonds a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.
