Fantasy Football Advice
There have been conflicting reports out of the Steelers camp about how much they intend to use Samuels. At the end of the day, we're going to know once the preseason begins. We'll be able to see how many first teams snaps he, Conner, and Snell are getting, and from there we can determine the expected split. I'm still of the belief that Conner will get mos of the work, but that doesn't make Samuels a bad pick. We saw last season that he's capable of producing for fantasy if something were to happen to Conner. He's more of a handcuff/flier...but most players in this range are anyways.

The Steelers have talked about sharing the workload in the backfield, and they reinforced that when they drafted Benny Snell in the fourth-round of the NFL Draft. Samuels was never meant to be a 20-plus touch back, but he's likely going to be involved much more, even when James Conner is healthy. The issue is that Snell is a threat to his upside and would likely be the primary back if Conner were to go down with an injury. Because of that, Samuels may be locked into a Chris Thompson/Giovani Bernard type role, which doesn't do much for your fantasy team. Unless we hear he's the primary backup, he's not someone you should roster.He's on the final year of his deal with the Bengals, so it makes sense they'd draft a running back. But two of them? Trayveon Williams is likely his replacement next year, while Rodney Anderson presents workhorse ability when healthy. This is looking like an ugly mix behind Joe Mixon in 2019, meaning you should just let someone else take Bernard in your drafts.
