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 placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

The Steelers placed Jaylen Samuels on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fantasy Impact

This doesn't necessarily mean Samuels tested positive for the virus, but it means he at least came in contact with someone who did. Any missed reps could create an opening for fourth-round rookie Anthony McFarland. James Conner is expected to open the season as Pittsburgh's feature back.
