Conner is 14th in DYAR and DVOA. I don't think he can be a cornerstone of a good offense, but for the first eight games of a season with a healthy OL I think he can stay on pace for 1000 yards rushing and 500 yards receiving.
One of the mysteries of the 2022 season is why he wasn't used more in the passing game early on. 3.8 targets per game through the first five weeks of the year didn't seem like enough at the time. During his five games as a starter in 2021 he averaged 5.25 targets per game.
Green as a fourth passing option (or fifth really after Greg Dortch showed he could ball) really should be adequate.
And exploiting the weaknesses of the teams he's playing against. I think part of the issue is the Air Raid foundation that is really about keeping things simple for the players. Kliff has talked about how he can't steal things from Kyle Shanahan (I think) because the foundations are so different it doesn't make sense.Conner averaged over 50 yards a game through the last 7 games of last season. He hasn't had a single game over 30 this year.
One of Kliff's biggest issues might be drawing plays and game planning to make the most of the talents available.
If they allowed 10 receivers sets Green would be covered by the water boy.Hey my guy, did you just really type that AJ Green is an adequate WR 2 in any offense? ha! kidding with you a little my friend. Hope your center forward on your soccer team has a brace in your league tournament, and HH to the fam!
I mean, that's supposed to account for bad defenses, because it's defense-adjusted. We've also played some good rush defenses. SF is #2 in Rush DVOA, LARM is #5, NE #9. According to DVOA, LACH's rushing defense (25th) isn't even as bad as ours (29th).
