Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels carried the ball five times for 26 yards and added five receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: While Samuels' 45 total yards won't impress, the reality is it may be a while before we see James Conner again after he had to be removed with more shoulder trouble. In that scenario, Samuels, and to a lesser extent Trey Edmunds, would take over in the backfield. Of the two, Samuels should be the one to own going forward, though clearly Conner's status will be the deciding factor.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels ran for 29 yards on 14 carries and added 11 yards receiving on three receptions in Week 10 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: In two full games as James Conner's replacement, Samuels has rushed for 39 yards on 22 carries. Perhaps he's still feeling the effects of the knee scope that kept him out for a few games prior to last week, but this "production" should quiet the argument he needs to share carries with Conner when both are healthy. With Conner a possibility to miss another game due to Pittsburgh's game on Thursday versus the Cleveland Browns, Samuels will likely be in the RB2 conversation yet again.

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.
Huddle Up: Samuels did his best James Conner imitation, at least in the pass game, making fantasy owners in PPR leagues happy. He might be a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams if Conner is inactive again.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Samuels likely will receive most of the work at running back with James Conner listed as doubtful. He should be involved in the running and passing game this week and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.
Huddle Up: Samuels may be the starting running back for the Steelers in Week 9 depending on James Conner's status. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in fantasy leagues if he receives most of the touches against the Indianapolis Colts.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Huddle Up: Samuels is on track to play in Week 9 after missing some time because of surgery and could receive most of the work at running back depending on James Conner's health. Samuels can be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he receives the start against the Indianapolis Colts.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) will return for Week 9, and he could have played if needed in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Samuels could be an RB2 if James Conner (shoulder) can't make it back to face the Indianapolis Colts. If he's on waivers, scoop him up.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) practiced in full Saturday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Samuels has just one touchdown on the season with 31 touches adding up to 133 yards from scrimmage. He shouldn't be considered as a fantasy option in anything but the deepest of PPR leagues.
