RB - ARI
James Conner and the Cardinals are reportedly closing in on a free agent deal.
The Pro Bowl running back was expected to test free agency, but it appears he will stay put. With Chase Edmonds signing with Miami, the 26-year-old back should be the lead in Arizona's backfield. For fantasy managers last season, Conner was something of a touchdown machine, tallying 18 overall with 15 of them rushing. With this ability, he should be a low-end RB1, his stock only hindered with Kyler Murray's ability to scramble.
Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner is active for Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams.
There was never much doubt regarding Conner being active for tonight's matchup, but it remains to be seen how effective and involved he will be for the Cardinals. Conner has been one of the Cardinals most consistent players on offense and will be needed to help the Cardinals pull off the victory. Chase Edmonds, who is also active, will likely log the bulk of the snaps, but Conner should be on the field in short-yardage and red zone situations.

Kliff Kingsbury made it known that Conner is a game-time decision for Monday's wildcard game against the Rams, so this should come as no huge surprise. Nonetheless, it will still be worth monitoring his status at practice on Friday and Saturday.
