James Conner, Jaylen Samuels Forming 1-2 Punch

Pittsburgh Steelers running backs James Conner and Jaylen Samuels were lined up together in the backfield during Day 2 of organized team activities this week, which is a different look for their offense. Samuels had 256 rushing yards on 56 carries in his rookie season and added 199 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 26 catches as a converted tight end. Conner, who had 215 carries for 973 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground last year, will see the bulk of the backfield touches and will be highly coveted in fantasy drafts with Le'Veon Bell out of the picture now. Samuels won't be a bad handcuff at all.

Jaylen Samuels Catches Seven Passes In Finale

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels gained just two yards on two carries but hauled in seven passes for 40 yards in a 16-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17. Samuels siphoned just two carries away from James Conner, who saw 14, but he did remain a big part of the Pittsburgh passing attack. Samuels finishes his rookie year with 256 rushing yards, 26 receptions, 199 receiving yards, and three touchdowns. While Samuels isn't going to unseat Conner for lead back duties in 2019, he proved his worth as a pass-catching running back, giving him some PPR value going forward.

Jaylen Samuels Scores In Loss

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels carried the ball 12 times for 53 yards in a 31-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 16. He also added 11 yards and a touchdown on three receptions. While it wasn't a huge day for Samuels, he showed well in a matchup against one of the best run defenses in the NFL. If James Conner (knee) remains sidelined in Week 17, Samuels can be treated as a solid RB1 in a fantastic matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.
