Derek Lofland

Conner is a little banged up, if he plays he is probably more of a RB2 at the 49ers 5th ranked fantasy running back defense. 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Conner's season-long outlook took a hit with the news that Ben Roethlisberger will miss the rest of the season, but at least Conner's knee injury does not appear to be a major concern. Conner could see more stacked boxes and fewer scoring opportunities with Mason Rudolph under center, but it's also likely that the Steelers rely on Conner more than ever. That expected volume keeps him on the RB2 radar despite the QB and health issues and a challenging road matchup with a 49ers defense that has impressed thus far.
