Player Notes
Dec 10 2:30pm ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers are expecting to get wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and running back James Conner (shoulder) back in time for their Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills. Neither has played since getting injured against the Cleveland Browns in Week 11. Both players are expected to practice this week in what would be a big boost to the Pittsburgh offense as the team looks to remain in the playoff picture. Conner's return would come at an especially good time as Jaylen Samuels is looking questionable for this weekend with a groin injury. That being said, fantasy GMs need to temper their expectations for both players as the Bills have been stout on defense this season.

Dec 10 1:13pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) is expected to practice at some point this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Spin: Conner had yet to receive clearance for contact for Week 14, and that figures to be a formality. Jaylen Samuels (groin) is also banged up, and Benny Snell could be a major factor against the Buffalo Bills. Watch this trio this week.

From TheHuddle

Dec 8 3:03pm ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers have declared CB Artie Burns, QB Paxton Lynch, LB Tuzar Skipper, RB James Conner, OT Chukwuma Okorafor, TE Zach Gentry and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster inactive for Week 14.

From TheHuddle

Dec 6 3:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 6, but has been ruled out for Week 14.

Fantasy Spin: Conner appears to be making progress since he was limited during practice this week but is still at least a week away from returning. Benny Snell should receive most of the carries this week and can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Dec 6 3:13pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) was unable to practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 14 versus the Arizona Cardinals. RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and has also been ruled out. LB Mark Barron (knee, non-injury) was limited Friday, Dec. 6, but no longer appears on the injury report. WR Diontae Johnson (illness), TE Vance McDonald (non-injury) and OG Ramon Foster (non-injury) practiced in full Friday and also have been removed from the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Dec 5 4:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 5.

Fantasy Spin: Conner is not expected to play this week even though he has been limited during practice. Benny Snell likely will receive most of the carries against the Arizona Cardinals and can be at least a flex option in leagues.

From TheHuddle

Dec 5 2:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) said Thursday, Dec. 5, that he will miss the team's Week 14 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Spin: Conner has logged only six touches since Week 8, and it's rapidly becoming a lost second half of the season. In the meantime, Benny Snell and Jaylen Samuels are ready to shoulder the backfield load for another week.

From TheHuddle

Dec 5 2:20pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Cardinals despite getting in some limited practice this week. It will be his third straight missed game, and fantasy owners shouldn't be holding out much hope that he can help you the rest of the way if you've made the fantasy playoffs. A Pro Bowler in 2018, Conner has disappointed with 390 rushing yards and five missed games. Benny Snell Jr. should continue to carry the load on early downs in Conner's absence. He'll be an upside RB3 in the good matchup with Arizona, but Jaylen Samuels should continue to see more work in the passing game.

From RotoBaller

Dec 4 4:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Spin: Conner hasn't played since leaving the Week 11 game against the Cleveland Browns. He'll likely return to his full workload once cleared to play and will be an RB2 for the fantasy playoffs.

From TheHuddle

Dec 3 1:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) has a chance to practice Wednesday, Dec. 4, and he'll be questionable this week.

Fantasy Spin: Conner is trending up if he could potentially practice early in the week. Conner will have a good matchup against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14 if he can go. He'd be a low-end RB2.

From TheHuddle

Dec 3 12:50pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that there is no clarity yet on wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) or running back James Conner (shoulder), and they are both questionable to play in Week 14 against the Cardinals. Both players were in the training room on Monday, and Conner has a chance to practice on Wednesday. Conner and Smith-Schuster have both been out since Nov. 14. You shouldn't be counting on either if you made the fantasy playoffs. Benny Snell Jr. has been seeing most of the early down work in Conner's absence, but he has been ceding pass-game work to Jaylen Samuels and others, so he's a touchdown-dependent RB3, at best. In JuJu's absence, James Washington has stepped up and become flex-worthy for fantasy owners. Both he and Diontae Johnson could have good games against Arizona's non-existent secondary if Smith-Schuster misses another game. Keep a close eye on their practices statuses this week.

Dec 1 11:53am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 13 game.

From TheHuddle

Dec 1 11:43am ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers have declared CB Artie Burns, QB Paxton Lynch, LB Tuzar Skipper, RB James Conner, OT Chukwuma Okorafor, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster and TE Zach Gentry inactive for Week 13.

From TheHuddle

Nov 29 3:40pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (shoulder) is doubtful to play in Week 13 against the Browns. Conner just isn't ready to return to the team's backfield, but Week 14 is a realistic target at this point. Continue to leave him on your bench. Pittsburgh's offense is a shell of its former self with wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) also out. Benny Snell Jr. should lead this backfield once again against Cleveland, but he's not a three-down back and will share snaps with Jaylen Samuels and others, making him a low-upside RB3 this weekend.

From RotoBaller

Nov 29 3:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns. RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as doubtful. CB Artie Burns (knee) was upgraded to full practice Friday and is listed as questionable. OT Alejandro Villanueva (shoulder) and OG Ramon Foster (non-injury) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Nov 29 2:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as doubtful for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Spin: Connor surprised a few folks by making it through a limited practice Wednesday after telling reporters earlier in the week "it'll be a little longer" before he was able to return, but it appears he'll miss his fourth game of the season as expected. The Pittsburgh backfield has become a mess in his absence, as Benny Snell, Jaylen Samuels, Trey Edmunds and Kerrith Whyte all got touches last week. Snell and Samuels remain the best fantasy plays, but neither can be trusted as more than a flex at the moment.

From TheHuddle

Nov 28 2:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) and OG Ramon Foster (non-injury) were unable to practice Thursday, Nov. 28. RB James Conner (shoulder) and CB Artie Burns (knee) were upgraded to a limited session. OT Alejandro Villanueva (shoulder) was upgraded to full practice.

From TheHuddle

Nov 28 2:10pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (shoulder) got in a limited practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. It means that Conner has a shot to play in Week 13 against the Browns after sitting out in Week 12, but he's still not a guarantee to return this weekend. Unless we get confirmation that he'll suit up, you need to keep backup plans in place in case Conner misses another contest. Benny Snell Jr. saw most of the backfield work last week with Conner out, with Jaylen Samuels playing second fiddle. Snell would be a mediocre RB3 choice if Conner misses another game. His practice status on Friday should help clear the picture up a bit.

From RotoBaller

Nov 28 1:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Spin: Him taking part at all was a good sign, but he'll still likely draw a questionable status for Week 13. Benny Snell dominated the work last week with 21 carries for 98 yards, and he could to the same again with Jaylen Samuel in on passing downs. Both are flex options against the Cleveland Browns if Conner sits again. Conner would be an RB2 if he returns.

From TheHuddle

Nov 27 4:10pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. Conner has been out since the last meeting with Cleveland on Nov. 14, and so far this week he doesn't look like a candidate to face the Browns the second time around this Sunday. Unless he returns to practice later this week, you'll have to look elsewhere at the running back spot. If Conner misses another game, Jaylen Samuels will continue to have RB2 upside, especially in PPR leagues.
