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.

Steelers' Jaylen Samuels: Could have pass-catching role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuels could see more involvement in the Steelers' passing game than initially anticipated Sunday against the Browns with lead back Le'Veon Bell (contract dispute) not expected to be available for the season opener, Joe Rutter of TribLive.com reports.

Bell's reputation as one of the NFL's premier three-down backs and James Conner's status as his top understudy seemingly blocked Samuels' path to immediate snaps with the Steelers, who selected the North Carolina State product in the fifth round of April's draft. However, with Bell and the Steelers unable to come to terms on an extension over the summer and the lead back having yet to report to the team to sign his franchise tender, Samuels suddenly finds himself in an intriguing position within an offense brimming with talent. While head coach Mike Tomlin hasn't formally defined what Samuels' role will look like in Week 1, it's not hard to envision him stealing reps from Conner on passing downs. During his senior season, Samuels excelled as a receiver and route runner while lining up out of the backfield, at tight end and even in the slot, hauling in 76 passes for 597 yards and four touchdowns on 99 targets.
