  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels ready to practice    Thu Aug 13, 01:04 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: Samuels is one of the most versatile players in the NFL...and the Steelers really don't yet use him the right way. He'll catch passes out of the backfield in the mix at the running back position behind starting RB James Conner.

  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels placed on COVID list    Sun Aug 2, 01:41 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: The COVID-19 list is designated for players who test positive for the virus or have been in contact with someone who has the virus. Samuels is a jack-of-all-trades at the running back position and was no.2 on the Steelers last year with 47 receptions. If used properly, Samuels can be more efficient as a runner and make more plays as a receiver. The Steelers added Anthony McFarland (Maryland) in the 2020 NFL draft and the rookie could cut into Samuels role behind starter James Conner.

  Steelers | Uncertain future for Jaylen Samuels?    Fri Jun 5, 10:26 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels isn't in 'the category of a lock' to make the 53-man roster, according to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com.

Footballguys view: The Steelers have a jam-packed backfield with more talent added this offseason in the draft (Anthony McFarland). However, no player in that backfield is as versatile as Samuels. He's a jack-of-all-trades as a running back and can be used as a slot receiver or gadget quarterback if called upon. The Steelers don't seem to have a clue how to use Samuels properly and he seems to be miscast in this offense. We'll see this battle shake out in training camp and will monitor Samuels in dynasty leagues.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh's injury report for Week 15    Fri Dec 13, 02:40 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and TE Vance McDonald (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 13, and have been ruled out for Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills. RB James Conner (shoulder) practiced in full all week and is listed as questionable. RB Jaylen Samuels (groin), OT Alejandro Villanueva (non-injury), OG David DeCastro (non-injury), LB Mark Barron (non-injury), OG Ramon Foster (non-injury), WR Johnny Holton (illness) and C Maurkice Pouncey (non-injury) were full participants at practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Steelers will be thin at tight end this week without McDonald. Conner being questionable takes some shine off of him as a play this week. He might not come back to a full workload if he does go against the Bills.

Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster left practice in an ominous sign for his Week 15 availability. James Washington and Diontae Johnson project as starters against Buffalo.

Footballguys view: Samuels is likely to start next week against the Bengals in a matchup that was good to him the first time around. He shouldn't be on the waiver wire in any league.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels spun his wheels with eight runs for just 10 yards in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts, but he posted 13 receptions for 73 yards on his 13 targets.

Footballguys view: Samuels had a costly fumble but was helping move the chains all day in a very conservative pass offense. If James Conner is out next week as expected, Samuels will be an excellent PPR RB2 and worthy nonPPR flex.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.

  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels takes part in practice    Wed Oct 30, 03:50 PM

  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels will return    Tue Oct 29, 12:28 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) will return for Week 9, and he could have played if needed in Week 8.

Footballguys view: Samuels is 100 percent and could be the Steelers lead back with both James Conner and Benny Snell banged up. He's the No. 1 waiver wire add this week if you're in need of running back help. With a starter's workload, Samuels could post high-end RB2 numbers in Week 9. Watch to see the practice status for Conner as the week goes on.

  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels out a month    Tue Oct 8, 12:25 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) will miss a month of action following knee surgery Tuesday, Oct. 8.

Footballguys view: The Steelers roll on with James Conner as their lead back. When he needs a breather, we could see more from rookie Benny Snell. The fourth-round pick from Kentucky is more of a downhill grinder and not the all-purpose weapon that Samuels is as a runner or receiving threat. Expect Conner to get as much work as he can handle.

  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels seeing significant role    Tue Aug 6, 02:07 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels has been filling a 'significant part of the offense' so far during training camp, as the team limits the workload of RB James Conner. Samuels has been lined up at various positions during practices.

Footballguys view: Message! Keep an eye on Samuels and his potentially expanded role during the preseason. He's incredibly versatile as a runner or receiver and is a handcuff for James Conner if you have the bench space. Fantasy GMs are taking Samuels off the board at RB43 (9.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels working on speed    Fri Jun 21, 02:05 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels has focused on improving his speed this offseason and believes he has done that, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: Samuels should be used more in two-back backfields and as a tight end/H-back if the Steelers offense is evolving. He's an intriguing pick later in PPR leagues with his unique skillset and James Conner injury upside - albeit dampened by fourth round pick Benny Snell joining the running back room.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh may use two RBs in backfield    Fri May 24, 06:04 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs James Conner and Jaylen Samuels lined up in the backfield together at times during practice this week, and Samuels said he believes that formation could cause problems for defenses.

Footballguys view: This is an innovation the Steelers need with Antonio Brown and lots of youth at wide receiver. Samuels proved he is an NFL quality runner last year and he can also block, run routes and catch balls like a tight end or H-back. He should be on the field more this year even if Conner is still the clear lead back.
