James Conner activated for Steelers off COVID-19 list

The Pittsburgh Steelers activated running back James Conner from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

What It Means:

Conner will return from his two-game absence for Sunday's Week 14 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. The Steelers were held to a season-worst 21 rushing yards in Monday night's surprising loss to the Washington Football Team as Benny Snell Jr. and Anthony McFarland Jr. managed only 20 yards on 12 carries. Ben Roethlisberger probably won't be asked to throw it 50-plus times with Conner available.

Conner is currently the RB10 in numberFire's Week 14 fantasy rankings and our models project him for 13.8 FanDuel points on Sunday. He only averaged 6.7 FanDuel points in his three games prior to landing on the COVID-19 list.
