Re: Why is Jaylen Samuels a TE when he is playing RB this week?

Do me a favor and click on Samuels name within yahoo fantasy. It brings up his profile where it lists him as only a RB....Also the Steelers official website has him only listed as a RB...Fairly certain he shouldn't get a TE designation...It's bogus

Either way it’s still **bleep**, he’s never played one play as TE, not even in college. Even at the combine he wasn’t listed as a TE. This would allow a team to start 5 running backs

This has the potential to influence the majority of yahoo leagues. If you have a TE eligible for the flex, you may have a team starting 4 RB's just in time for the playoffs. Many people will feel like yahoo wasted their entire season.

This is an explanation of a really dumb process not a solution. My solution your dumb process is to switch to another fantasy provider next year.

Why all the fuss. it give you the option of using him in either position. and his scoring is the same either way.

What a joke. Guy literally lines up as a running back on every snap he plays. ESPN and CBS have him listed as a RB, while Yahoo refuses to make this adjustment. You guys have to consider the unfair advantage this offers the one person (who was able to roster him), per league.

I believe it is because of the potential of Samuels providing RB1 or RB2 numbers in the TE slot. With a dreadfully thin crop of TEs, anyone without Kelce, Ertz, Kittle and probably Ebron would and likely should be inclined to start Samuels as their TE.

 

Typical TE (not listed above) will pop some line like 5/55/0. This guy has a very good chance to have a line more like ***Phone Number Removed - Learn more.***
