RB - FA
Week 4 Outlook
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels racked up 45 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries in Thursday's win over the Eagles.
With the Steelers running back room being loaded with talent, Samuels made his talents know on Thursday racking up 45 yards and a touchdown. With Najee Harris at the top of the depth chart, Samuels, Anthony McFarland Jr, and Benny Snell continue to fight in out for the second string and back up jobs. The situation is worth monitoring for fantasy relevance.
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jalen Samuels recorded 11 carries for a total of 20 yards on Thursday against the Cowboys in a 16-3 win
The 3rd year back struggles on Thursday to rush the ball behind a sub par Steelers unit. Samuels saw his per rush average just hit 1.8 yards while rookie first round pick Najee Harris saw his at just 3.1. With a lack luster unit this is a bit of a concern for Samuels & Harris, both of which are on fantasy owners minds. For now, the Steelers will continue to decide on who gets the backup role between Kallen Ballage & Samuels. As of now, Ballage looks in control.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels carried the ball once for four yards and added a 12-yard catch in a 27-17 loss to the Bengals in Week 15.
Samuels saw both of his touches on the final drive of the first half with the Steelers running their hurry-up offense. He will not be a recommended option in Week 16 against the Colts.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels gained 15 yards on four carries and added three receptions for 18 yards in a 26-15 loss to the Bills in Week 14.
Samuels surprisingly got seven touches despite James Conner coming back after missing the previous two games. Samuels has been barely used by Pittsburgh this season, despite his skills as a pass-catcher. He will not be a fantasy option in Week 15 against the Bengals.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels gained one yard on his lone carry and added 11 yards on three catches in a 23-17 loss to Washington in Week 13.
Samuels hadn't seen a touch since Week 7 and only had five total touches coming into the game. He will be lucky to see any work once James Conner comes back, as he is expected to do for Week 14's matchup against the Bills.
