2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Plucked off the scrap heap before last season on a one-year, prove-it deal, Conner went from designated short-yardage/goal-line back to primary ballcarrier when Chase Edmonds got hurt. He handled the role admirably, finishing second to Jonathan Taylor (18) in rushing TDs (15), and was rewarded with a new three-year deal that cements his status as the lead back in Arizona.

For all that, there are still significant questions about Conner's ability to hold up as a bell cow over an entire season -- after five NFL campaigns he's still never appeared in every game in a season and has missed a combined 16 games during that stretch -- as well as a lack of explosiveness. Conner managed just 3.7 yards per carry last year, and he finished below 4.0 in five of his final six games, so his style is more about wearing you down than delivering big plays.

One thing working in Conner's favor is the depth chart, which is light on proven commodities or threats to usurp his touches from week to week. He's a capable receiver as well, which allows him to stay on the field regardless of down and distance. Conner has the whiff of a midrange or low-end RB2, though he carries significant injury risk.

News From The Past 90 Days
Cardinals sign RB Darrel Williams
Former Chief will backup James Conner
By: Mike Krueger | Tue May 24, 1:22 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Breaking: FA RB Darrel Williams is signing with the #AZCardinals, per source. I’m also told Patrick Mahomes vouched for Williams, informing Arizona that he was a back he both liked/trusted. DW had a great season w/over 1,000 scrimmage yards, 8 TDs/zero fumbles (191 touches). (Jordan Schultz on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There Cardinals were a little thin in the running back room which includes Eno Benjamin and rookie Keaontay Ingram. Williams was respectable in the passing game in Kansas City (47-452-2 last season) and should fit in as the No.2 behind James Conner. He'll be worth a look if Conner misses time.
