The Athletic's Mark Kaboly reports that Jaylen Samuels has been a "significant part of the offense" so far in Steelers camp.
Samuels' role comes as James Conner has apparently been handled with kid gloves in an effort to keep him healthy and fresh. Per Kaboly, Samuels has been OC Randy Fichtner’s "Christmas toy that he didn’t learn to play with until the following year." Kaboly reports Samuels has been used both as the backup running back and an offensive weapon who can "can line up just about everywhere." Regardless of Conner's usage, Samuels is sounding like someone who could have standalone fantasy value in PPR leagues.
