Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin

James Conner (quad) is questionable for Week 15 against the Bengals. The Steelers limited Conner's practice reps this week but he's now on track to play. Conner had just 10 carries last week and is at risk of an in-game setback, but he's a low-end RB2 against a Bengals defense that's allowing 4.9 YPC. Benny Snell would get the start if Conner doesn't play.

Cincinnati Bengals DFS Spin

Giovani Bernard rushed three times for eight yards in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Cowboys. He caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in the passing game. Bernard got the start for the Bengals, but he fumbled on his very first carry of the game and was benched until the second half. Trayveon Williams actually led the backfield with 12 carries for 49 yards and also lost a fumble on the second possession of the afternoon. Samaje Perine also saw 10 carries, turning them into 32 yards. Bernard won't be a recommended fantasy play next week against the Steelers.
