Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's been a week since we've seen Samuel on the field, but it's important to remember just how dominant he has been up to this point of the season. Samuel is currently averaging 6.2 receptions, 109.6 receiving yards, and .6 touchdowns per contest this year and he needs to be in your starting lineup, no questions asked. Samuel has the toughest matchup on paper this week against the Colts with Rock Ya-Sin, but we know that the 49ers move Samuel all over the formation and get the ball in his hands in creative ways. Fire him up this week as a low-end WR1 with upside.Are there any leagues where you have Conner on your roster that you're contemplating not starting him this week? Everything is lining up here for Conner to have a monstrous performance. The Cardinals are 17.5-point favorites at the time of writing, Chase Edmonds doesn't appear to be at 100%, and the Cardinals are most likely going to be running the ball for the entire second half. We should see Conner get plenty of work this week against an abysmal defense that is bleeding fantasy points to opposing RBs and he's going to get goal-line opportunities. Normally, we don't want to rely on Conner over more proven options in our starting lineup, but with so many RBs currently on byes and injured, Conner should be viewed as a mid-range RB2 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Samuel had scored 3 TDs in his 2 games prior to the bye and he should be a WR1 at home against a Colts D that is 26th against fantasy wide receivers.The Texans are just 25th against fantasy backs, but the majority of the points allowed have come versus the run and not versus receiving backs. Conner figures to be the better option against a team that has allowed 6 rushing TDs in 6 games this year to go along with 731 rushing yards allowed to running backs.
