Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Colts are 7th against fantasy running backs and Kamara has not scored a touchdown since Week 3. He is looking more like a low-upside RB2 in a tough matchup.The Bills are 13th against fantasy running backs, Conner has flex value on an offense that does not pass the ball very much in his first game back from injury. He also is likely to be on a snap count, which puts him in the low-upside flex area.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 It looks like James Conner should finally be making his return in Week 15. He's a fairly risky play, as the Steelers offense has pretty much struggled all season, and they have a tough matchup against the Bills. Consider him a risk-reward RB2.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Kamara has not been good for fantasy and now he faces the Colts, who have been top five against RBs over the past five weeks. If we take the name value away from him, he is nothing more than an average RB2 option this week. However, we do know he has top RB upside if he is able to figure things out. Let's hedge our bets and consider him a borderline RB1, given the importance of this week.
