The Steelers have been using RBs James Conner and Jaylen Samuels in the same backfield during some plays in OTAs, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I think that could be kind of special with me and [Conner] in the backfield," Samuels said. "Me and him in the game, period. We’re just building on from that right now… He’s more of a runner and a catcher, as well, but I can get outside and run routes, as well. To have that dual threat with me and him in the game, it could be really scary for defenses.” Conner was excellent as Pittsburgh's feature back for 13 games last season. But Samuels also impressed when given a shot, racking up 223 yards on 5.3 yards per carry and a 12-105-1 receiving line in 3 starts late in the year. There are touches to go around this season with Antonio Brown's departure, and Samuels has the receiving ability to capture some of them. He's an intriguing later-round pick in fantasy drafts.
The Cardinals have released RB Jaylen Samuels, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Arizona will move forward with Darrel Williams, Eno Benjamin and rookie Keaontay Ingram behind James Conner.
Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) is "ready to go" for Week 9, HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday. Samuels was a full-go in practice all last week before being ruled inactive for Monday night's game against Miami. His return comes at a good time after RBs James Conner (shoulder) and Benny Snell (knee) both left the Dolphins game with injuries. Conner reportedly has a shot to play against the Colts this weekend. But Samuels should be owned in all fantasy leagues at this point.
Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels is inactive for tonight's game against the Dolphins. He entered the night questionable after returning to full practices all week. But Samuels is just 3 weeks removed from arthroscopic knee surgery. It's undoubtedly a good thing Pittsburgh decided to rest him at least another week rather than push Samuels back for a game in which the offense shouldn't need him. Samuels' absence keeps Benny Snell in the #2 RB role.
Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels in questionable for Monday night's game against the Dolphins but appears likely to play. He told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that he's "real close" to 100% and put in full practices all week. Samuels seems likely to play, though it'll be risky to wait on him unless you have another Monday night play to sub in. The matchup with Miami does add some sleeper appeal.
Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice. He's seemingly ready to return for Monday night's game against the Dolphins just 3 weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Samuels should slide back in as Pittsburgh's #2 RB and is on the RB3/Flex radar vs. Miami's 31st-ranked RB defense.
