We're going to simply assume Conner is held out this week, as he's consistently been injured this year and clearly needs a break from game action. Samuels is the primary beneficiary in his absence, though his 2.6 yards per carry have been horrendous. With all the pass-catchers out for the Steelers, he would also get plenty of work in the passing-game. Even with them in the lineup, Samuel has averaged 7.6 targets per game over the last five games he's played. The Bengals opponents have averaged a massive 29.7 running back touches per game, so there'll be plenty to go around. The efficiency has been there alongside the volume, as they've allowed a healthy 4.70 yards per carry, as well as 7.67 yards per target. Both of those marks are bottom-six in the NFL. Samuels totaled 18 touches the first time these teams met, and they amounted to 83 total yards and a touchdown. There have now been 14 running backs who've finished as the RB26 or better against the Bengals. Provided Conner is out, Samuels should be played as a mid-to-high-end RB2.
