UPDATE: Conner was seen walking out of the locker room after the game. He may escape serious injury, stay tuned!
NEWS: Bad news for James Conner owners… the runner exited the Week 13 Sunday night game against the Chargers with a leg injury, and it didn’t look good. It’s uncertain how bad it is.
Smitty’s Take: He was on the ground for a bit, then needed serious help off the field. Assuming he’s out multiple weeks if not more, but be certain to check back with us for an update on this one… We get asked weekly why we continue to put Jaylen Samuels on our weekly waiver wire add list, and this is why. If you guys remember back before the season kicked off, James Conner and Jaylen Samuels were a package deal on our No. 2 Bold Prediction of the 2018 fantasy football season if Conner were out… Samuels is every bit as good as James Conner, and he offers a different style of play. He is shifty, speedy, and a great receiving back. If available, grab the guy.
