With running back Chase Edmonds still on IR, James Conner has proven why the Arizona Cardinals took the chance on him in free agency last offseason. Conner has looked like he hasn’t missed a step as the lead back and has posted seven total touchdowns in his last four games. Most recently, he ran the ball 10 times for 39 yards and a touchdown while catching three of his four targets for an additional 25 yards.
With his teammates struggling to stay on the field due to injuries, Conner has been a stable piece of this offense for the majority of the season. Conner has either a touchdown or at least 71 yards rushing in eight straight games.

This week, Conner is going to be running against the Seattle Seahawks defense that is giving up the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Conner has been on a tear and whether or not quarterback Kyler Murray returns under center this week, they are still going to lean on Conner.
