The Pittsburgh Steelers got in their first formal practice of Week 11 on Tuesday, and running back James Conner was a full participant. Conner missed the team’s past two games with a separated shoulder.

The team did not practice on Monday, but provided an estimated report that listed Conner as a full participant. Backup Benny Snell was a DNP on both days and is not expected to play on Thursday. The team welcomed back guard Ramon Foster to a full practice, which suggests he might be back in action this week.

Fantasy football analysis: Steelers RBs James Conner, Jaylen Samuels

Conner appears on track to be active, and he would likely move right back into his starter role. Jaylen Samuels will remain a big passing down option, but loses his starter value for standard leagues. Conner is a good start regardless of league. With Benny Snell out, it removes one potential vulture. Conner and Samuels should both be plenty busy against a shaky Browns defense.
