Vance McDonald, Jaylen Samuels Miss Practice

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald (concussion) and running back Jaylen Samuels (groin) both were missing from practice on Wednesday. Not only is McDonald questionable for Week 15 against the Bills on Sunday night, but he hasn't cleared 50 yards the entire season and has only three touchdowns. He has just five catches for 25 yards in the last three games combined. Even if he's active, he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups in a very difficult draw in Buffalo. Nick Vannett would be a desperation TE2 if McDonald is inactive. Samuels is basically useless in fantasy with James Conner (shoulder) expected to return this Sunday.

Jaylen Samuels' Struggles Continue

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels rushed for 16 yards on seven carries, while catching two passes for 18 yards in Sundays 23-17 win over Arizona. Samuels is supposed to be the pass-catching back in the offense but his recent stat line doesnt show it. The second-year back has 15 receptions for just 96 yards and a touchdown in the last five games. If James Conner (shoulder) returns for the Bills game in Week 15, Samuels could see an uptick in usage as the Conner draws a bit more attention than Benny Snell Jr.. However, its hard to trust Samuels at all during fantasy playoff time.

Jaylen Samuels Not An Option Against Cardinals

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels has a solid matchup this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. However, the second-year back hasn't been very productive of late and shouldn't be considered for your fantasy lineups in Week 14. Over the last three games without James Conner (shoulder), Samuels has just 64 yards on 14 carries, while hauling in 10 of 11 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown. Say the Steelers get behind and need to pass a lot, then maybe Samuels could have a better day, but don't get your hopes up.
