Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner has been activated from the Covid-19 list, per the team. The Steelers have been anemic in the run game and they very much need to get Conner going when they face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday Night Football.
Conner has missed the last two games due to Covid-19. He started the season well with three 100-yard games in the first five, including four rushing touchdowns, but cooled off after that. The Bills are a team that can be run on, so Conner has a real chance to get back into the fantasy football landscape if the Steelers look to establish him.
Pittsburgh is coming off their first loss of the season, which came against a good Washington Football Team defense. Their running backs ended up rushing 13 times for just 21 yards in that outing, which will likely motivate them to put the ball in Conner’s hands this week.
