You can certainly argue that Conner is a bigger injury risk than most RBs. He’s missed 14 games over the last 4 seasons with ankle, shoulder, quad and heel injuries.
But Conner also looks like a good bet for RB1 production when he’s on the field. He actually scored as the #2 RB in all of fantasy football in 6 games last year without RB Chase Edmonds, who’s now in Miami. Conner should be in a similar role in 2022 with only Darrel Williams, Eno Benjamin and 6th-round rookie Keaontay Ingram behind him on the depth chart.
We like Conner as a target in Round 3 or later of fantasy drafts.
