Are there any leagues where you have Conner on your roster that you're contemplating not starting him this week? Everything is lining up here for Conner to have a monstrous performance. The Cardinals are 17.5-point favorites at the time of writing, Chase Edmonds doesn't appear to be at 100%, and the Cardinals are most likely going to be running the ball for the entire second half. We should see Conner get plenty of work this week against an abysmal defense that is bleeding fantasy points to opposing RBs and he's going to get goal-line opportunities. Normally, we don't want to rely on Conner over more proven options in our starting lineup, but with so many RBs currently on byes and injured, Conner should be viewed as a mid-range RB2 this week.
