Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
After a disappointing Week 1, Conner ranks seventh in median points per game at 16.7. Since Week 1, he has scored no worse than 13.8, and he has a high water mark of 22.9. Conner should have no issue finishing within that range against the Titans this week, as their defense gives up an above-average amount of points per game to running backs. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.Drake looked different running the ball last week and it finally led to the production that we had all been waiting and hoping for from him. It's impossible to say that Drake should be back to being viewed as a potential top-10 option at the RB position like he was in draft season, but the arrow is certainly pointing up. Drake can be plugged into your lineup as a mid-range RB2 in this matchup against the Seahawks that promises to see points go up on the board.
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 reaction when Drake went off for 164 yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys on Monday night was probably something like -_- if my reaction was anything like yours. He's received 18-plus touches in 5-of-6 games and hasn't had fewer than 13 carries in any game. Still, he's barely being used in the passing game and has weighted opportunity similar to someone like Devin Singletary or Jonathan Taylor. That's not great heading into this matchup. Against the Seahawks, wide receivers have outscored running backs by a massive 38.2 PPR points per game. There is no other team in the league who has a gap of more than 23.1 points. So, it should come as no surprise to hear that of the 90.88 fantasy points per game the Seahawks have allowed to skill-position players, a league-low 23.9 percent of that has gone to running backs. Part of the reason that's happened is due to teams being forced to go pass-heavy against them. Their opponents have called a run play on just 34.4 percent of plays, which is the second-lowest number in the league. Even through the air, the Seahawks haven't allowed a lot of production or efficiency, as the 3.88 yards and 1.10 PPR points per target both rank as the lowest marks in the league. Just one running back was able to rush for more than 65 yards against them this year, and that was a game that was played in the rain against the run-heavy Vikings. Bottom line is that Drake's role is on the ground, where the Seahawks have allowed just 55.8 fantasy points through five games, which ranks as the eighth-fewest in the league. Keep in mind that's while their opponents have averaged a ridiculous 75.6 offensive plays per game. Drake is in the low-end RB2 conversation because of his guaranteed touches, but this is not a week to get excited about him. As for Edmonds, he had a very small role last week while Drake looked good. Edmonds is valuable if the Cardinals fall behind, which is well within the realm of possibilities, but we've already talked about the Seahawks being the best defense in the league at defending pass-catching running backs, making him a low-upside, low-end RB3.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Titans are just 23rd against fantasy backs, Conner should be a solid RB1 this week in a great matchup.The Seahawks are 11th against fantasy running backs, Drake had a breakout game last week, but he is still more RB2 than RB1 at home this week.
