Roster %


Conner still rules the Arizona Cardinals backfield - 18 touches for 77 yards in Week 4 - but remains super reliant on volume and TD production to deliver fantasy production. He ranks 50th out of 55 qualifying RBs in yards after contact per attempt meaning he's not creating much on his own. It's problematic versus a stout Eagles front that hasn't allowed any rushing room since D'Andre Swift went for 100-plus yards back in Week 1. No RB they have faced has surpassed 32 rushing yards since Week 2. Their DL also ranks fourth in fewest rushing yards allowed before contact (1.09) this season. Conner is a low-end RB2 that you'll begrudgingly have to play. His role as a receiver increased last week (57% route participation) so stay assured he will catch passes if and when Arizona trails in this game. He has 3 catches in his last two games and has averaged four targets this season.

Conner has only 22 fantasy points over the last 3 weeks, he is a low-upside RB2 against an Eagles D that is 15th against fantasy backs.
