James Conner held to 26 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win

Cardinals RB James Conner rushed eight times for 26 yards in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Conner is not being used at all in the passing game, and with Edmonds making the most of equal touches, Conner could see a loss in opportunity sooner than later.

James Conner held to 53 yards in Week 1 win over Titans

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner rushed 16 times for 53 yards in the Week 1 win over the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Conner signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals during free agency. Sunday he split backfield touches, with Chase Edmonds, as expected. However, Conner was not as efficient on the ground and was not targeted in the passing game. He's could potentially lose touches to Edmonds if this trend were to carry into Week 2.

James Conner held to one rushing yard in Preseason Week 2 loss

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner carried two times for one yard during a 17-10 Week 2 preseason loss against the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Conner signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals during free agency and will split backfield touches with Chase Edmonds. Conner was limited with his opportunities against the Chiefs on Friday and did not get targeted. He's currently valued as the RB39 in half-PPR formats, available in the ninth round with Kenyan Drake and David Johnson.

James Conner activated from reserve/COVID-19 list

The Cardinals activated RB James Conner from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fantasy Impact

Conner was only considered a close contact, which is why he was able to return so soon. Chase Edmonds is the preferred Cardinals running back to roster for fantasy purposes, but Conner figures to have a role as well. There's a good chance that Conner is used more regularly on the goal-line, which is obviously a plus for his fantasy prospects.

James Conner (COVID-19) placed on Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner (COVID-19) has been placed on the league's Reserve/COVID-19 list due to being a high-risk contact with an individual who tested positive, per Tom Pelissero.

Fantasy Impact

Conner was placed on the Cardinals' Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday due to being a high-risk close contact. His history with chemotherapy to treat cancer is well documented, so it makes sense for the team to place him on the list out of extra precaution. Continue monitoring Conner's status throughout the weekend.
