Player Notes

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner forced 26 broken or missed tackles on his 202 carries in 2021, according to Sports Info Solutions. That number ranked fourth in the league, while his broken/missed tackles forced percentage of 12.9 ranked second among running backs with at least 150 carries.

Fantasy Spin: Conner enjoyed a resurgent 2021 in many areas, but there is reason for concern with him in 2022 that goes beyond his injury history. He averaged a mere 3.7 yards per carry and over 40 percent of his fantasy point total from last season came via his 18 total touchdowns. The offensive line doesn't figure to be any better this year either. Last but not least, Eno Benjamin reportedly has enjoyed a fantastic offseason and could carve out a bigger role than Chase Edmonds ever did if he can carry it over to training camp.

The Arizona Cardinals re-signed running back James Conner to a three-year contract on Monday. He will return to Arizona after compiling 752 yards and 15 rushing touchdowns on 202 carries in 2021. He added 37 receptions on 39 targets for 375 receiving yards and three scores as Arizona's most productive running back. The 26-year-old spent last season in a committee with Chase Edmonds, who recently signed a two-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. Unless the Cardinals bring in another running back to compliment Conner, he is expected to lead Arizona's backfield in 2022 and is a high-end RB2 for upcoming 2022 fantasy drafts.

Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent RB James Conner agreed to a three-year extension with the Cardinals Monday, March 14.

Fantasy Spin: When is the last time someone had 15 rushing touchdowns and only 752 rushing yards? Conner was fifth in fantasy points at the position, in PPR and non-PPR, and the team will look to supplement him again with Chase Edmonds leaving. Conner is going to be one of those RB1s that will be extremely risky because he relies on pay dirt so much.

The Arizona Cardinals are interested in bringing back impending free-agent RBs James Conner and Chase Edmonds, according to general manager Steve Keim.

Fantasy Spin: Although Conner and Edmonds each missed a handful of games last season, they proved to be an effective duo for Arizona when healthy, combining for 1,344 rushing yards, 80 catches, 686 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns. If both players return to the Cards for 2022, they should be viewed as RB2 or flex options for fantasy purposes due to the timeshare situation.
