Fantasy owners should look to see if Conner practices on Friday. It is believed that Conner will sit out of today’s practice session. If Jaylen Samuels is available on waivers make sure he is owned. Even if Conner plays, San Francisco has not allowed a running back to rack up more than 100 yards through the first two games this year. Proceed with caution as the Steelers could see more defenders pressuring Mason Rudolph and the Pittsburgh backfield.
