Notes for Player Combination
 
Expert 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 Freeman looked out of sorts last season, but he still finished as the RB21 in a down year for Atlanta. His visit with the Jaguars is a strong indication he'll sign with the team, as Leonard Fournette was released and Ryquell Armstead was placed on the COVID-19/reserve list for the second time this offseason. It remains to be seen what Freeman has left in the tank, but he should be the team's unquestioned starter if he inks a deal. He was fantasy's top back in 2015, so his upside is evident.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
At this point, it would shock me to see Samuels stick around on the Steelers final 53-man roster. James Conner, Benny Snell, and Anthony McFarland all appear to be above him on the depth chart. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Samuels has received just 122 carries in his first two seasons, and although he can factor in as a receiver at times, he doesn't have a path to regular playing time. Even if James Conner deals with injuries again, Benny Snell Jr. and Anthony McFarland Jr. stand in Samuels' way. He's relevant only in extremely deep PPR leagues and barely so even there. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Jaylen Samuels is very much on the roster bubble. That's not a popular take as I know some believe he'll be the passing downs back but I just don't buy it. He didn't offer close to enough last year to suggest he's anything more than a special teams guy who'll get the occasional few snaps.Nobody knows where Devonta Freeman will end up in 2020, but wherever it is, it's likely too late for him to have a massive impact. Jacksonville would be intriguing but for now, he's nothing more than a speculative add.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Samuels was one of the hottest waiver wire adds of the 2019 season and while he never reached his RB1 aspirations, he was able to stay relevant in PPR formats. Unfortunately for him, James Conner is slated to return which will all but eliminate all of Samuel's touches on the ground. He'll have a couple of games with high receiving numbers but still remains nothing more than a handcuff to Conner.Freeman isn't currently employed by any NFL team but if he ends up in the right spot, he can be a steal at his current ADP. Keep an eye on where he may land over the next few weeks.
