Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After totaling at least 18 touches in each of his first six full games he played this year, Conner has been an afterthought in the Steelers offense. He's received just 42 touches over the last three games despite outscoring their opponents 87-32 in those games. Even worse, he's scored just one touchdown over the last five weeks while Benny Snell has vultured two touchdowns in that time. The last time these two teams played, Conner did total 18 touches, though they amounted to just 60 total yards without a touchdown. The Ravens have allowed a rushing touchdown once every 51.3 carries, which is the second-largest number in the league, though the status of their interior linemen is important. We already know that Brandon Williams has been ruled out with COVID, while Calais Campbell hasn't practiced. It seems they'll be without both players this week, which is certainly a big plus for Conner. I mentioned this last week with Henry, but the Ravens allowed just 4.12 yards per carry with Williams on the field last year but allowed a massive 5.31 yards per carry without him. While the Ravens sold out to stop Derrick Henry last week, they can't do that with the receivers that the Steelers have. There have been three running backs who've totaled 115-plus yards on the ground against the Ravens this year, and Conner should have relatively fresh legs with his limited work the last three weeks. Conner makes for a solid RB2 play who'll likely be under-owned in DFS tournaments with his recent performances.He saw a season-high 10 targets last week, which is a welcomed sight considering Brady appears to be favoring Evans and Brown quite a bit. The Bucs should continue to involve Godwin more and more, as he's caught 80.4 percent of his targets and can play as the underneath receiver with the way Jones/Fournette have struggled in the passing game. The Chiefs have used a combination of Tyrann Mathieu and Rashad Fenton to cover the slot, which isn't a bad thing for Godwin. They've combined to allow 28-of-44 passing for 389 yards and a touchdown in their coverage. The Chiefs have allowed 11 wide receivers to finish as the WR38 or better and four of them have been slot-heavy wide receivers. Over the last three weeks, they've allowed the combination of Hunter Renfrow, Curtis Samuel, and Braxton Berrios combine for 19 receptions, 176 yards, and a touchdown. Godwin is someone who should be the safest and least touchdown-dependent of the Bucs wide receivers, so consider him a relatively safe low-end WR2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Conner had 14 fantasy points the last time these teams played and he should be a RB2 against the Ravens 12th ranked fantasy running back defense.Godwin has started to play better the last 2 weeks and he should be a WR2 against a Chiefs D that is 5th against fantasy wide receivers.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Conner came back to life a bit in week 11 against the Jaguars as he rumbled for 89 yards on the ground and averaging nearly seven yards per carry. This is a good sign for fantasy managers that have continued to roll Conner into their starting lineup, but it's going to be difficult to get excited about Conner here in week 12. The Ravens struggled last week with Brandon Williams and Calais Campbell out of the lineup, so Conner's fantasy outlook depends a lot on their availability, but they've been a pretty difficult matchup otherwise. Conner can be viewed as a mid-range RB2 with very little upside, but he would get a slight bump up if both of those defenders miss this contest.
