The Steelers have ruled RB James Conner (shoulder) out for Sunday’s game. Meanwhile, Juju Smith-Schuster was added to the injury report with a toe. He’s questionable. Ian Rapoport

  • Non-PPR, with Benny Snell also out, would you start Samuels over Gurley this week?

    I've got Zeke & Henry penciled in at RB, just debating on Flex spot.

    I'd start Samuels over Gurley.

    Looks like I traded Samuels at the absolute wrong time last week. Thought he’d only be good for one start and then Connor would be back. Got Drake for him and now I’m thinking the Drake owner sold high. Aaaargh.

    Valid point. Samuels did have 21 touches vs Gurleys 10. Gurley got bailed out by a TD. Volume is there for Samuels. He is literally the only health RB Steelers have. Even Edmunds dealing with a rib injury now but should play.

    gurley sat out the 2nd half after scoring his td last week.

    but it's no easy choice.
  • So if Juju does play at this point would it be right to bench him?
    QB - Dak and Brady
    RB - David Johnson, Derrick Henry, Melvin Gordon, Crowell (IR), Mack, Shady
    WR - Mike Thomas, TY, Boyd, Jeffery, Robert Foster, Baldwin ( Retired)
    TE - Ebron, Brate

    I'm currently thinking about this. Right now I wouldn't start him depending on your options. I'm trying to talk myself into starting him. Thinking things like Ramsey doesn't roll to the slot and JuJu has been running 65%+ of his routes from there. Juju has come up before on injury report on Friday and then played his usual snaps. My only available options would Robby Anderson or dropping Anderson for Dionta Johnson incase game time decision with Juju. If I dont start Robby Anderson this week I never will.

    Rams defense is legit against WRs and Rudolph hasn't been great yet. Which means with all signs pointing towards sitting Juju he will probably go off for 100 yards and a TD lol. I dunno what I'm going to do yet.
