Conner rushed 20 times for 101 yards and one touchdown in Week 6 against the Browns. He added one reception for one yard. Conner dominated work out of the backfield and topped 20 carries for the first time this season. He continued to produce with that volume, finding the end zone for the fourth consecutive game and reaching 100 yards on the ground for the third time in his last four contests. Despite the strong performance, Conner didn't provide many breakaway runs, posting double-digit yards on a carry only three times. Even so, he's proven to be the workhorse for the Steelers and should see plenty of volume again in Week 7 against the Titans.
Conner carried the ball 15 times for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Eagles. He added three receptions for 19 yards. Conner was held in check by the stout Eagles defensive line as 25 of his 44 yards came on a single carry. However, he still found the end zone on a one-yard score early in the third quarter to help salvage his performance. Even after the relatively poor effort, Conner has 350 total yards and three touchdowns through four contests. He should remain heavily involved in the offense as the Steelers take on the Browns in Week 6.
Conner and the Steelers will not take the field Week 4 against the Titans following additional positive COVID-19 tests within the Tennessee organization, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The initial plan was to move the game from Sunday to either Monday or Tuesday, but with reports of additional positive tests from another Titans player and personnel member surfacing, the league ultimately decided it would be best to postpone the contest. The Steelers were originally in line for a Week 8 bye, but it remains to be seen if that will stay intact with a new Week 4 bye now on the calendar.
Conner carried 18 times for 109 yards and a touchdown while catching four of five targets for 40 additional yards during Sunday's 28-21 win over the Texans. Conner had a rather pedestrian start to the game and watched as Anthony McFarland and Benny Snell took away 14 touches. It appears that was in an effort to keep Conner fresh, as he helped Pittsburgh control the game in the second half and scored the decisive touchdown on a 12-yard run in the fourth quarter. He now piled up 270 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns over his last two games and will look to keep up his excellent production next Sunday against the Titans.
Conner carried 16 times for 106 yards and a touchdown while catching both his targets for an additional 15 yards in Sunday's 26-21 win over the Broncos. Conner dealt with an ankle injury throughout the week and was rumored to be in for a timeshare with Benny Snell Jr., but he out-touched his teammate by 14 and scored a two-yard touchdown run to get the scoring started in the first quarter. Given his productivity in the face of adversity this week, Conner figures to dominate the touches again next Sunday against the Texans. Injuries remain a concern, however, so fantasy managers will hope he doesn't feel any lingering effects heading into the contest.
