Jaylen Samuels 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Real talk guys!

What do you think about the potential outcome of Samuel?

I mean Samuel isn't Conner or Bell..

Otherwise the matchup against Oakland is good..

Doesn't have to be Conner or Bell if you can slot him into the TE position.

& Greg Olsen owners

 

& Jordan Reed/Jimmy Graham/ Any TE outside of Ertz, Kelce, Ebron, Kittle

 

Even Gronk owners.... I'd rather have Samuels at my TE slot this week than Gronk

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said the Steelers' "intention" is to use a running back by committee.

This makes sense considering Jaylen Samuels has 12 career carries to his name and Stevan Ridley has carried the load before, most recently Week 17 of last season. Even so, Samuels is the better fantasy bet and the top waiver add of the week.

So must add or worry over Ridley split?

 

 

Nvm rbbc, only the GL back will be valuable

Must add if he is TE eligible in your league (like on Yahoo).

A lot of things to be cautious about with Samuels. The presence of Ridley,  game flow......

 

I don't know.

Personally in my .5 ppr league my TE situation has averaged a solid 5-6 points per week the entire year.

 

Even if it is a true RBBC, Samuels at my TE slot has a lot higher floor and ceiling than any other option I have.

 

I'd expect Ridley to get 8-10 touches with Samuels getting 12-15, and against the Oakland D that is a solid floor of 10-12 in any PPR format imo

 

The main thing we have to hope for is that Oakland keeps it somewhat close to keep PIT throwing

so who is the better back, talent wise?  Samuels or Ridley?

 

I own samuels and wondering if i should put in a claim for ridley, though i'd prolly miss out since the connor owner is right before in waiver priority.

There will obviously be a split...65/35-?

So picking him up now. Do people have any worries Yahoo changes from TE/RB to only RB? Or do most have confidence it will remain as it is now?

Zero chance they change it.

I don't think they change it. They may add position eligibility, but I've never seen them take it away from a player during the season.

Ridley not playing an offensive snap in 3 games is all you need to know...

Yeah, especially since Conner has been a little banged up after that TNF game. Samuels will see the majority of RB touches.
