Jaylen Samuels finds the end zone

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels had a productive game in his team's 17-7 preseason win over the Chiefs on Saturday. Samuels carried the ball four times for 26 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels capped off an 89-yard drive with a 14-yard touchdown run. The second-year back will open the season behind James Conner but is expected to see plenty of playing time, especially in the passing attack.

Jaylen Samuels sees three touches

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels carried the ball twice for 21 yards and added a catch for nine yards in a 30-28 win over Tampa Bay in Friday's preseason opener.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels is a main piece of the Steelers offense this season, so he only played sparingly in this one. The second-year back is expected to mix in behind starter James Conner in the regular season.

Jaylen Samuels emerging as a weapon for Pittsburgh

The Athletic's Mark Kaboly is reporting that Jaylen Samuels has been deployed in a number of roles including backup running back and lining up all over the formation so far in Steelers training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels will have value this year with his ability to work as both a runner and receiver while Pittsburgh looks to keep James Conner from wearing down like he did last season. Samuels has flex appeal in PPR formats in the coming season.

Jaylen Samuels hauls in seven passes

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels picked up two yards on two carries in his team's 16-13 win over the Bengals in Week 17. He added seven receptions for 40 yards in the game.

Fantasy Impact

With James Conner active, Samuels didn't see a full workload but he stayed involved in the game plan. Samuels didn't do much on the ground but he continued to show that he can be an excellent pass-catcher out of the backfield. He caps off his rookie season with 256 rushing yards, 26 receptions, 199 receiving yards, and three touchdowns.

Jaylen Samuels scores in Week 16 loss

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels carried the ball 12 times for 53 yards and added three receptions for 11 yards and a touchdown in a 31-28 loss to the Saints in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Samuels showed well in a tough matchup against one of the NFL's top run defenses. He could have had a bigger day but Pittsburgh went away from the run in the third quarter. With James Conner's status still up in the air, Samuels could draw another start in Week 17 against the Bengals. He would be an RB1 for that contest if Conner doesn't play.
