James Conner Will Not Carry Injury Designation For Week 2

Friday, September 15, 4:19 PM

Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner will be good to go in Week 2 against the New York Giants as he does not carry an injury designation anymore. The 28-year-old was dealing with a calf issue this week but ultimately was able to feel good enough to shed the injury status altogether. As the main source of offense for this team, he'll likely be a low-end RB2 since he'll the see bulk of the opportunities in the backfield. His main limitation will be the offense playing from behind due to a lack of scoring ability.

Josh Jacobs A Top-6 RB In Week 3

Saturday, September 23, 11:38 AM

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs has disappointed fantasy managers thus far this season, averaging 23 yards/game on the ground (1.6 yards/attempt) and 37 yards/game through the air. The bright spot has been his volume and usage as Las Vegas' bell cow running back, averaging 76% of snaps and 17.5 touches/game so far. He will have an opportunity to increase his dismal yard/attempt average in Week 3 against a Pittsburgh Steelers team allowing 30+ points per game to opposing fantasy RBs, the second-most in the NFL to this point. Expect Jacobs to look more like himself this week as a locked-in RB1 based on his continued volume.
