The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to shake off a rough outing last week against the Dallas Cowboys with a game against the Bengals, a matchup that sees the Steelers favored by more than a touchdown. To do that, they’ll need a solid outing from running back James Conner, something his fantasy football owners will also be looking for after he laid an egg last week.
Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers RB James Conner
Conner will be looking to get back on track after a disappointing outing last week against the Cowboys, a bad game for him as well as his team. He carried the ball just nine times for an underwhelming 22 yards. He even had negative yardage on the two passes he caught.
Fortunately for Conner and the Steelers, he’s got a favorable matchup this week against the Bengals. Cincinnati has been giving up monster performances to opposing running backs this season; Derrick Henry was the latest to run all over them.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start James Conner.
