Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
James Conner Note

I was a big proponent of drafting Conner before the season began, but he quiclky reminded us why he was a risky pick in drafts. The Steelers went back to him in a workhorse role in Week 2, but if he were to suffer another injury, it could be all they need to go into a full blown timeshare. He's a risky player to own the rest of the season, so put the feelers out there to see what you can get.

Benny Snell Jr. Note

Snell Jr. went back to his role as a backup in Week 2 with James Conner healthy. He showed in Week 1 that he can carry the load if necessary, but so long as Conner is healthy, Snell will be just a high-end backup.

Jaylen Samuels Note

Samuels has received just 122 carries in his first two seasons, and although he can factor in as a receiver at times, he doesn't have a path to regular playing time. Even if James Conner deals with injuries again, Benny Snell Jr. and Anthony McFarland Jr. stand in Samuels' way. He's relevant only in extremely deep PPR leagues and barely so even there.
