Best matchups for fantasy football Week 4
5. James Conner, RB, Arizona Cardinals (vs. Carolina Panthers)
James Conner hasn’t necessarily been the fantasy producer that managers drafted him to be in 2022. After dominating in 2021, he’s been off to a sluggish start — much like the rest of Arizona’s offense. He’s totaled 90 yards on 30 carries, and hasn’t added much through the air.
However, this is a good week for Conner and the rest of the Cardinals’ offense to rebound. Conner is going up against the Carolina Panthers, who have allowed the 16th-most fantasy points to running backs in 2022, and haven’t looked very good themselves. This will likely be a competitive game, and the Cardinals will need offensive production to win out.
Conner has the talent and the volume to be a legitimate fantasy producer. He’ll have to improve on what he’s done through three weeks and make better use of the solid volume he’s getting. Until then, he’s a low-end RB2. However, this matchup increases his outlook this week.
