James Conner's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

James Conner was the number #6 ranked RB and the #29 ranked player overall. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (13). Based on average fantasy points he is the #7 RB. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 4 games he averaged 27.7 fantasy points which was higher than his start (15.2 FP) and his ending average (11.3 FP). He is young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. Our projected ceiling for Conner when he 'goes off' is 33 fantasy points (his average is 17.5FPs) with a floor of 6 points. James Conner (2019 Season Projection: 206 Rush, 895 Yards, 10.3 TDs, 52 Rec, 447 Yards, 0.8 TDs) is projected to deliver comparable fantasy value in 2019 where his projection based rank has him as the #6 player at his position.
