We break down the fantasy football outlook of James Conner ahead of the Cardinals’ Week 12 matchup against the Chargers.

NFL: International Series-San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals Rob Schumacher-USA TODAY Sports

James Conner found running room hard to come by last week against the 49ers. The Arizona Cardinals running back carried the ball 14 times for 42 yards and a touchdown, adding another 12 yards on two catches in Arizona’s predictable offense.

This week, he gets to face the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Cardinals RB James Conner

Conner has scored three times in his last two games, keeping in the RB2 conversation on a weekly basis. In his previous game, against the Rams, he had 69 yards on 21 carries with a pair of scores and another 17 yards on three catches.

The Chargers haven’t been especially effective against opposing running backs. They are giving up an average of 28 points per game in PPR leagues. They’ve surrendered 10 rushing scores to running backs, tied for the third most in the NFL.
