Player Notes
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.

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.

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.

From RotoBaller

Nov 27 3:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Spin: Conner was not able to play last week and said he does not plan to rush back, so he could miss more time because of the injury. Benny Snell probably would receive most of the carries if Conner is ruled out and could be a flex option in standard leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 25 9:53pm ET

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) said Monday, Nov. 25 in a radio interview that he is making progress in his return, but stabilization is an issue. 'I'm definitely making progress on it. Getting a lot more strength in there, more stabilization. It's one of those things that as a player I have to be smart with because if I continue to play without it being stable, then eventually surgery will need to be done. So, I just need to wait till I have enough stabilization and strength and that tendon gets a little bit stronger, because that's kind of what I had, a little minor setback when I tried to play versus Cleveland,' Conner said.

Fantasy Spin: All signs point to Conner missing the Browns game in Week 13. Benny Snell Jr. carried the load with rookie newcomer Kerrith Whyte also seeing some time in the backfield. Jaylen Samuels did not see an increase in workload, although he did see touches, and is also likely to factor in on passing downs.

From TheHuddle

Nov 25 6:13pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) said he may need to undergo surgery on his shoulder if he is not careful with the injury. He said the ligaments in the shoulder need to be stronger.

Fantasy Spin: It seems like Conner will miss more time because of the injury, but fantasy players will have a better idea on his status later in the week. Benny Snell is coming off a productive Week 12 performance and probably would be the main option in the running game if Conner is ruled out. Snell could be a flex option in standard leagues this week.

From TheHuddle

Nov 24 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 12.

From TheHuddle

Nov 22 5:00pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (shoulder) and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) won't be on the field for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Conner had five carries for 10 yards in Week 11 before exiting after re-aggravating his shoulder injury. Meanwhile, Smith-Schuster took a hit to the head, on a pass over the middle, in the same game and was forced to leave. Both absences leave the Steelers very empty handed on offense. Look for Jaylen Samuels and either Trey Edmunds or Benny Snell Jr. to share the backfield duties, while Diontae Johnson (concussion) and James Washington to be the primary targets in the passing game.

From RotoBaller

Nov 22 2:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) and RB James Conner (shoulder) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. CB Artie Burns (knee) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Nov. 22, but is listed as doubtful. WR Diontae Johnson (concussion), RB Benny Snell (knee), LB Olasunkanmi Adeniyi (concussion), TE Nick Vannett (illness), TE Vance McDonald (non-injury), LB Mark Barron (non-injury), LB Bud Dupree (triceps) and OG Ramon Foster (non-injury) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report. C Maurkice Pouncey (non-injury) was not given a practice designation Friday and has also been removed from the injury report, although he will be suspended for the game.

From TheHuddle

Nov 22 10:03am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) won't play in Week 12, according to sources.

Fantasy Spin: Jaylen Samuels will be the main cog in the backfield against the Cincinnati Bengals. View him as a low-end RB2 with Benny Snell taking the scraps as a potential flex candidate.

From TheHuddle

Nov 21 4:40pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (shoulder) and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) both missed practice for the second day in a row on Thursday, and both are not expected to play in Week 12 against the Bengals. You should've already been planning to be without both players this week. The goods news is Smith-Schuster's injury shouldn't be long term, so he could be back in Week 13. It's looking like Diontae Johnson (concussion) and James Washington will be the top two wideouts against Cincy, while Jaylen Samuels will have RB2 upside in a great spot against the winless Bengals.
