Steelers' Jaylen Samuels: Scores first career touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuels carried five times for seven yards and caught three of four targets for 22 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's 52-21 win over Carolina.

The rookie benefited from Pittsburgh taking a big lead early in the game, matching his total carries on the season. He also caught his first passes and scored his first professional touchdown to cap the scoring for the Steelers. James Conner was removed from the game in the fourth quarter and was being evaluated for a concussion, so there is a chance that Samuels could see a bump in playing time when they play the Jaguars in Week 11.

Steelers' Jaylen Samuels: Gets first touches from scrimmage Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuels ran for 17 yards on four carries during Sunday's 33-18 win over Cleveland.

Entering the contest Samuels had played just two offensive snaps without a touch, but he toted the rock on four consecutive plays in the fourth quarter for his first touches of the season. Expect him to return to his usual role on special teams as James Conner has been impressive rushing for 599 yards and nine touchdowns on 127 carries, adding 323 yards on 31 receptions filling in for Le'Veon Bell (contract dispute).

Steelers' Jaylen Samuels: No touches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuels had no touches during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Ravens.

The rookie has been limited to special teams play this season and continues to wait for his chance on offense. James Conner has handled 92 percent of the carries by running backs through four games but has struggled lately and is averaging just 3.7 yards per rush, so Samuels may get an opportunity sooner rather than later.

Steelers' Jaylen Samuels: Does not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuels did not play in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Samuels has not played a down yet this season, even with Le'Veon Bell (contract dispute) away from the team. James Conner has taken over as the bell cow in the backfield, playing in 89 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps Sunday.

Steelers' Jaylen Samuels: No snaps in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuels failed to see any action in Sunday's 21-21 tie against the Browns.

In Le'Veon Bell's absence (contract dispute), Samuels was listed a James Conner's back-up on the Pittsburgh depth chart and was expected to be utilized as a third-down, pass-catching option, but the rookie was never given a chance. He may be worth stashing in deep leagues, at least until (if) Bell returns.
