Conner's coming over from Pittsburgh to take on the vacated Kenyan Drake role, but we know by now that Conner's not exactly 100% of what he used to be. He's coming off of a disappointing season with the Steelers and he'll look to get back on track in this potentially dynamic offense. With splitting work with Edmonds, plus Murray stealing work around the goal line, there's only so much potential here for Conner in this offense. He'll be a fine RB3 for your roster that can start on some bye weeks, but fantasy managers shouldn't be holding out hope for him to be anything more than that.

James Conner signs with the Cardinals

Jay Glazer of FOX NFL reports that James Conner has signed a deal with the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

The signing comes a day after Conner flew in for a visit. The Cardinals were looking to add another RB via free agency or NFL Draft. Conner rushed for 721 yards and six touchdowns while catching 35 passes for 215 yards. Since coming into the league in 2017, Conner has had trouble staying healthy. He only appeared in 13 games last season, missed six games in 2019 and another three games in 2018. He recently had offseason surgery for a minor turf-toe but is expected to make a full recovery by the start of the season. It's hard to imagine Conner getting a full workload due to his injury history while also splitting time with Chase Edmonds. Conner will be a middling RB3 who shouldn't be prioritized in drafts.
