Jaylen Samuels's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND POSITIVE OUTLOOK FOR 2019

Jaylen Samuels was a bench player and spot starter this past fantasy season. 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. Our projected ceiling for Samuels when he 'goes off' is 17 fantasy points (his average is 7.1FPs). Jaylen Samuels (2019 Season Projection: 80 Rush, 323 Yards, 1 TDs, 40 Rec, 308 Yards, 3.8 TDs) is projected to improve in the upcoming season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #43 player at his position.

PAST FANTASY PERFORMANCE (2018)

Jaylen Samuels only saw the field in 9 games in 2018. It is important to note that if he played a full season, at his average, he would be ranked as the #43 RB. He is relatively stronger (stats bolded below) than weaker in more categories.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 8.6 points and on DraftKings it was 10.2 per game. We used his second highest game as his ceiling and second lowest as his floor. On DraftKings his floor was 0.2 and on FanDuel it was 0.2 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 16.2 and 13.9 on FanDuel. He has had more good FanDuel games (exceed average by 20%) than bad games (20% below average), and an equal number of good and bad games on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
