Jaylen Samuels is Projected to Have a Better Fantasy Season in 2019


Jaylen Samuels had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He was the number #57 ranked RB and the #388 ranked player overall. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #44 RB. He steadily increased his fantasy average as the season went on. He averaged 1 FPs in his first 2 games, 7 fantasy points in his next 2 and 11.3 FP after that. Given his youth, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. He averaged 7.1 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 17 fantasy points. Jaylen Samuels (2019 Season Projection: 80 Rush, 323 Yards, 1 TDs, 40 Rec, 310 Yards, 3.8 TDs) is projected to improve in the upcoming season.
