James Conner exits early again
James Conner - RB, PIT

Steelers running back James Conner exited the game due to an ankle injury and did not return.

Dynasty Analysis

He had a dismal night before exiting, posting 6/9/0 stat line while also pulling down two receptions for eight yards. The good news today is the report that Conner seems to have avoided a high-ankle sprain. The bigger issue again, though, is the consistent trend of Conner not being able to finish games. In his rookie season, Conner appeared in 14 contests but has yet to reach that number in the years following, playing in only 10 in 2019. Head coach Mike Tomlin is on record as saying he has no concerns about Conner's long term durability which, simply put, cannot be true. The fourth-year back's dynasty value continues to slide and will continue in earnest again in the days following week one from owners growing further frustrated with his inability to stay on the field. As DLF's RB27, Conner owners are in a difficult position in that he carries too much upside potential to move for the expected return value. In all likelihood, he will need to be held in the hope he can return to the field quickly and remain durable for the remainder of the season.
