Week 6: at Cincinnati Bengals

All RB vs CIN

FBG says: Good matchup. James Conner broke out of a multi-game slump last Sunday, rolling the injury-ravaged Falcons for 110 yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground. Atlanta was missing its three best run defenders, so the competition wasn't exactly robust, but it was still encouraging to see. Conner had managed just 97 yards at 3.03 a carry over the previous 3 weeks, and that performance was encouraging. In general, Steelers backs tend to have an easy path to fantasy success. They run behind a front line that's been together for ages, helmed by two All-Pros on the interior. Conner isn't a special open-field runner, but he's patient and methodical through his blocks, and last week he ran wild off right guard David DeCastro's hip. There are hiccups at times, and they probably won't face such a snake-bitten run defense again all year. But this run game is an impressive unit, one capable of both springing splash plays and grinding out games. The Bengals defensive front is built with an eye on rushing the passer and creating splash plays. But nose tackle Andrew Billings has emerged as a fine run-stuffing presence up the middle, consistently freeing up the so-so linebackers to fill gaps. Still, it's often not enough to paper over all of the cracks. Beyond Vontaze Burfict, who's working back into game shape (just 53% of snaps last week), there's a lack of foot-speed and pursuit ability on the second level. That's a big reason Christian McCaffrey detonated all of his career-highs with 184 yards in Week 3. In fact, opposing backs are averaging a staggering 4.60 yards per attempt in this matchup.
