Jaylen Samuels catches one pass

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels caught 1-of-2 targets for a 16-yard gain in a 28-10 loss to the Ravens in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels didn't receive a carry. The Steelers clearly view him as little more than a third-down back as his work in the running game was scaled back as the season wore on. He finishes the year with 47 receptions.

Jaylen Samuels catches four balls

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels carried the ball three times for seven yards and added four catches for 32 yards in a 16-10 loss to the Jets in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels was barely used in the running game, despite James Conner leaving with an injury (again). Samuels is a fine pass catcher but it is clear that the Steelers don't want him to shoulder the load in the ground game. Pittsburgh finishes the season against the Ravens next week.

Jaylen Samuels sees three touches

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels lost one yard on two carries in a 17-10 loss to the Bills in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels added a five-yard catch in the loss. The young running back barely saw any action on an evening where the Steelers only handed off to their running backs 14 times. Samuels will not be a fantasy option in Week 16 against the Jets.

Jaylen Samuels (groin) active for Sunday Night Football

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels is officially active for Sunday Night Football against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

With James Conner and Benny Snell also active, Samuels is going to be hard to trust as anything more than an ocean deep league flex3. With that being said, Samuels is the best receiver in the running back room, and could be leaned on if the Steelers manage to fall behind in this contest. The Bills have relinquished the third fewest fantasy points to the running back position this season.

Jaylen Samuels sees nine touches

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels carried the ball seven times for 16 yards and added two receptions for 18 yards in a 23-17 win over Arizona in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels turned in another quiet outing in the win. He has taken a backseat to Benny Snell Jr. in the backfield and isn't seeing enough work in the passing game to hold fantasy value. He will face the Bills in Week 15.
