The Chargers are 14th against fantasy running backs, but it is hard to trust Conner as more than a low-upside RB2 with a 3rd string quarterback likely in the lineup.

Sorry in advance for causing nausea, but Conner hasn't surpassed 55 rushing yards in a game yet this season. He does, however, have 21 receptions this season, so he makes up for it a bit there. The Steelers should be relying on Conner with Devlin Hodges at quarterback, plus Jaylen Samuels is out for a month or so after a minor knee surgery. Conner should be the focal point of the Steelers offense this weekend - let's see what he does with it.

Despite PIT QB issues, tweaked ankle, has been Top 15 RB in FAN PTS past 4 weeks, and has 2nd-easiest ROS schedule at RB - no workload worries with backup J. Samuels out (knee)
