Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Conner was averaging 14.5 half-PPR PPG before Week 9, but since then, his full-season average has dipped to just 12.2 PPG. There's not a true common denominator between the two bust performances -- Pittsburgh got behind early and emphasized the pass in Week 9, while they chose to keep passing after securing a big lead in Week 10. That said, Conner should be in for a rebound showing against Jacksonville's defense, as they give up the sixth-most PPG to opposing running backs. Conner is a safe start as a low-end RB1. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jaguars are just 27th against fantasy running backs, but Conner has tallied only 8.8 fantasy points in his last two games combined. Conner is a boom / bust RB1 on the road in a great matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After seeing 18 touches in six straight games from Week 2 through Week 8, the Steelers have seemingly turned into a pass-first team and cut off Conner's heavy workload. In two great matchups the last two weeks, Conner has totaled just 68 total yards on 26 touches... in the two games combined. So, when you see the Jaguars on the schedule, you want to get excited but it's hard after what we've seen the last two weeks, and it's hard to make an argument for them to change considering they've thrown 60 points on the scoreboard. Does that mean we should ignore him against a defense that's allowed 11 different running backs finish as the RB26 or better? No. There have been six running backs who've racked up 15-plus carries against them, which is more than enough to do damage. All in all, they've faced 23.6 carries per game. Conner has received 71 percent of the carries over the last two weeks, so if that carry mark were to hold true, he'd finish with 16-17 carries. Running backs have also been targeted 23.2 percent of the time against the Jaguars, which is the third-highest percentage in the league. That's led to seven running backs finishing with five or more receptions. Roethlisberger has only targeted his running backs 41 times this year, which amounts to a 12.1 percent target share, so we know better than to rely on a lot of receiving production out of Conner. The 4.01 yards per carry they've allowed isn't all that bad, but volume has been enough to carry running backs through to big performances, and it's why the Jaguars have allowed the sixth-most points to the position. Conner is more of a high-end RB2 at this point, but you need to keep playing him in favorable matchups like this one. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Conner simply hasn't looked like himself recently. He might be nursing an injury we don't know about, but lacks any sort of explosiveness right now. Conner's still seeing enough work to be a viable fantasy option, but he's done little to help your fantasy teams lately. With that being said, this is a fantastic matchup for opposing RBs yet again. Conner can be started as a mid-range RB2 with upside if he can find the end zone here.Some people are going to see the fantasy points that Scott put up in week ten and look to plug him into their starting lineups in week 11. However, that's not exactly the best idea. Scott only saw four total touches in this past game. While he made the most of his opportunity, that's not a workload that you can comfortably rely on for fantasy purposes. Scott can be viewed as a high-end RB4 this week.
