James Conner Designated to Return from IR, Could Suit Up vs Falcons in Week 10



The potential returns of both Conner and Kyler Murray this week should be music to the ears of fantasy managers after bearing witness to the offensive debacle the Cardinals muddled though against the Browns in Week 9. The last time Conner was in the lineup, he was dominating the rushing share to a tune of 62% of rushing attempts and 83% of short down and distance attempts. That volume gave him a solid weekly RB2 floor as the RB16 in fantasy points per game through the first four weeks of the season before he went down in Week 5 - and it should be noted that that production came in a Josh Dobbs-led offense, not a Kyler Murray offense. With Murray at the helm, the entire Arizona offense gets an upgrade, and Conner has a chance at fringe-RB1 upside the rest of the way assuming he gets his lead role back in short order. It’s not guaranteed that Conner will be back in Week 10, but fantasy managers can expect his return very soon regardless, even if it’s not this Sunday.
