Depth Chart
Samuels falls into a common tier of fantasy backs. He's a handcuff that will be a volume driven RB2 should Conner go down, but doesn't have the talent or pedigree to truly challenge for meaningful snaps. Yeah, he was mighty impressive in a late season game against the Patriots, and was decent in Weeks 14 and 16 when Conner was banged up, but when the chips were down in a must-win Week 17 game, Samuels was out-touched 17-9 by a returning Conner. The Steelers added Benny Snell to the mix in the 4th round of the draft, but he's a big effort, limited athlete who projects to be nothing more than a backup. Samuels should see more early season work this year than last, but it simply won't be enough for fantasy relevance short of an injury to Conner.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury JuJu Smith-Schuster back at practice Wednesday
Steelers WR on track to play Week 15
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Wed Dec 11, 8:33 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was able to return to practice on Wednesday as a full participant. Although James Conner is still dealing with the shoulder injury he reaggravated in Week 11, he was also able to return as a full participant. Practicing in a limited capacity over the last two weeks, Conner joined Smith-Schuster in making a significant step in returning to the lineup. Running back Jaylen Samuels suffered a groin injury against the Cardinals on Sunday, and his availability for Week 15 is still up in the air. Tight end Vance McDonald is in the NFL’s concussion protocol after leaving last Sunday’s game in the second half and was unable to practice on Wednesday. (SB Nation)

FFToday's Take: JuJU and Conner are the main concerns here, as they'll reduce the value of some of the guys whop have been filling in like James Washington and Diontae Johnson, as well as RB Benny Snell.
