Conner continues to get the large workload for Pittsburgh and he's delivering with it. Last week, Conner had 20 carries for over 100 yards and a score. While he's losing some touches to Snell and Anthony McFarland Jr., he's still worth plugging into your lineup as a solid low-end RB1 every single week. This week is no different against a defense that is currently the 9th easiest matchup for opposing fantasy RBs.Moss is simply a desperation bye week fill-in at this point. I'd recommend looking elsewhere if you can.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Ever since that disaster that had him leave the game early in Week 1, here are Conner's weekly finishes among running backs: 10, 7, 20, and 6. We talked about it in during July and August... he's an RB1 when he's on the field, and he's proven that to this point. The Titans are next up on the docket, a team that's allowed five running backs finish as top-22 options, including four who were top-14, including David Johnson last week when he totaled 69 total yards and a touchdown. They've allowed a massive 5.02 yards per carry on the ground this year without Jurrell Casey, though they've faced the eighth-fewest carries in the league to this point. It's because teams have run the ball just 40.8 percent of the time, which ranks as the 13th-lowest percentage in the league. But again, any running back who's totaled more than 12 touches against them has finished with at least 13.9 PPR points and a top-14 finish. The Steelers are going on the road, but they're still the favorites in this game, which bodes well for Conner who's received at least 18 touches in each of the last four games. Trot him out there as a low-end RB1 who should continue to thrive in his workhorse role. I might upgrade him even more if defensive tackle Jeffrey Simmons remains on the COVID list.The first four weeks of this backfield seemed fruitful for fantasy, even if there would be a guessing game between the two of them. They totaled 409 total yards and two touchdowns through the first four games but have totaled just 162 total yards and one touchdown over the last two games while totaling just 36 touches in the two games combined. What made it worse was that the matchups against the Titans and Chiefs were good ones. Now onto a rematch with the Jets, a defense that held them to 41 yards on 18 carries in the first matchup, though they also added 39 yards and a touchdown through the air. Make no mistake about it; this Jets team has gotten worse since then. They have faced the fifth-most weighted opportunity to running backs this year. Running backs have amassed 30.3 touches per game against them, while running the ball 46.7 percent of the time, which is the seventh-highest mark in the league. The Bills have rushed the ball just 38.6 percent of the time (rank 23rd) to this point, so something has to give. Including that game in Week 1, no team of running backs have totaled fewer than 26 touches against the Jets, so even if they're a better run defense than they're given credit for, there are fantasy points available. Singletary is the best bet, though he's certainly not an upside play. Consider him a high-end RB3 during the bye weeks. Moss had just five carries in his return from injury, though it was a messy game, so maybe they held him back. Whatever the case, it's difficult to trust him until we see him get double-digit opportunities. He really should against the Jets, so consider him an RB4 with a little bit of risk.

The Titans are just 23rd against fantasy backs, Conner should be a solid RB1 this week in a great matchup.
