You’re feeling great right now if you’re a James Conner fantasy owner. The Steelers running back had another 100 yard rushing performance and did so at an efficient pace yet again. But what should you do with Conner against the Tennessee Titans?
Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers RB James Conner
If you were to think about Conner’s value immediately against a team like the Titans you might be scared off. However, the Titans aren’t the best rush defense in the league. They give up 137 yards per game on the ground and Conner should be the beneficiary of that.
The Steelers will likely look to control the pace offensively on the ground. Conner had his most rushing attempts of the season last week against the Browns at 20. The time of possession battle will be the most interesting aspect of this game, and Conner’s ability to control the flow of the offense makes him a worthwhile start.
