James Conner's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect James Conner to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 181 projected fantasy points puts him at #11 behind Austin Ekeler and ahead of Todd Gurley. He has averaged 16.13 fantasy points in his past 15 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 12.9 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #8 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is not projected for elite value. James Conner is expected to come up short of last season's #7 fantasy position rank.

JAMES CONNER WEEK 3 AND 4 FANTASY OUTLOOK

James Conner is projected for 9.3 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #26 ranked running back and a starter for most owners. He is listed as questionable which lowers his projection. This is projected to be a below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Duke Johnson but behind Phillip Lindsay. Week 4 will be better based on projected rank (#5). He is projected for 15 fantasy points.

JAMES CONNER IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.4K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $6.4K

He is projected for 10.6 FanDuel points and 12.3 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$1502 short of $7.4K on FanDuel and -$1334 short of $6.4K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
