Samuels was given plenty of opportunity last year and simply wasn't able to produce. The Steelers went out and drafted an electric RB in Anthony McFarland, which indicates that Samuels' role with the team may be gone. This will be a situation to monitor in training camp and the preseason, but Samuels is essentially droppable in all formats.

Jaylen Samuels is very much on the roster bubble. That's not a popular take as I know some believe he'll be the passing downs back but I just don't buy it. He didn't offer close to enough last year to suggest he's anything more than a special teams guy who'll get the occasional few snaps.

Samuels has received just 122 carries in his first two seasons, and although he can factor in as a receiver at times, he doesn't have a path to regular playing time. Even if James Conner deals with injuries again, Benny Snell Jr. and Anthony McFarland Jr. stand in Samuels' way. He's relevant only in extremely deep PPR leagues.
