Jaylen Samuels finds end zone

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels carried the ball five times for 26 yards and added five catches for 19 yards and a touchdown in a 21-7 loss to the Browns in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels saw a larger role once starter James Conner reaggravated a shoulder injury and didn't return. Samuels would be a must-start in Week 12 against the Bengals if Conner doesn't suit up.

Jaylen Samuels bottled up in Week 10 win

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels carried the ball 14 times for 29 yards and added three catches for 11 yards in a 17-12 win over the Rams in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels was bottled up for much of the afternoon. He did tie for the team lead with seven targets but just couldn't get much going after the catch. He will take on the Browns in Week 11. If James Conner remains inactive, treat Samuels as an RB2 for that contest.

Jaylen Samuels catches 13 passes in Week 9

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels caught all 13 of his targets for 73 yards in a 26-24 win over the Colts in Week 9. He also added 10 yards on eight carries.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels lost a fumble in the contest and was out-carried by Trey Edmunds. That being said, the former college tight end made his mark in the passing game. Samuels would be in for another large workload if James Conner is unable to play in Week 10 against the Rams. He would be a must-start running back in PPR leagues if that is the case.

Jaylen Samuels 'ready to go' for Week 9

Jaylen Samuels is "ready to go" for Week 9's matchup against the Colts, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels has been sidelined by a knee injury, but he was able to practice leading up to Week 8 and is ready to return based on this report. That's good news for the Steelers who are currently dealing with injuries to fellow running backs James Conner and Benny Snell. The extent of those injuries isn't clear, but if Samuels were to enter the weekend as the team's starter he'd be an RB2 even in a difficult matchup against the Colts.

Jaylen Samuels inactive for Monday Night Football

Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels is officially inactive for the team's Week 8 matchup against the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels continues to deal with a knee injury that has kept him out since Week 5 against the Ravens. His fantasy value is limited, especially as he continues to deal with the knee injury.
