Curtis Samuel nets 13 yards in Week 17

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel caught 2-of-4 targets for 13 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Another week with a similar recap -- if Samuel does not score, he does not return fantasy value. Failing to total 100 yards in a single game in 2019, Samuel's most-productive outing yardage-wise occurred back in Week 2 when he totaled 93 yards. He had fewer than 74 total yards in every other game. Samuel will look to bounce back in 2020 but the Panthers need to find a quarterback if that's going to happen.

Curtis Samuel goes for 21 total yards in Week 16

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel caught 2-of-5 targets for 17 yards while rushing two times for four yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

The narrative continues. If Samuel does not score, he does not return fantasy value. Even if D.J. Moore misses Week 17 against the Saints and Samuel is an expanded role, it will be hard to trust him in fantasy with Will Grier under center.

Curtis Samuel (knee) officially active Week 16

Curtis Samuel (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Samuel will suit up despite missing Friday's practice due to a knee injury. There has been no indication that he will be limited, but this will be Samuel's first game with new starting quarterback Will Grier. With the knee injury and new quarterback, Samuel is a risky option in Week 16 and should only be started in deep-league formats.

Curtis Samuel expected to play Week 16

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is expected to play Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

It looks like Samuel will give it a go in a terrific matchup facing a Colts secondary allowing the eighth-most FPPG (25.2) to opposing wide receivers. While the Indy secondary was a strong point for the Colts earlier in the season, they have been fruitful to pass-catchers in the second half, especially in the past two games. In that aforementioned time period since Week 14, the Colts have given up double-digit PPR points to five different receivers including Michael Thomas, who went ballistic last week. However, since the Panthers made a quarterback change this week -- they will start Will Grier over Kyle Allen -- Samuel's ceiling could be even more limited than it normally is. If Samuel, who has scored four times in his past seven games, does not find the end zone, he is usually a bust as he has yet to surpass 93 total yards in a game this season, a feat he accomplished way back in Week 2. Samuel is a touchdown-needy Flex option for the Week 16 fantasy championship. You should probably look elsewhere if you are looking for a safe floor play.

Curtis Samuel finds end zone vs. Seahawks

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel hauled in five of his eight targets for 31 receiving yards and a touchdown. He added 23 rushing yards on four attempts.

Fantasy Impact

Samuel had a strong Week 15 to help fantasy owners in semi finals week thanks to a late score. He had just 31 receiving yards, but tacked on 23 yards on the ground to help his fantasy output. The late touchdown salvaged his fantasy day. The Panthers turning to Will Grier at quarterback slightly raises Samuel's ceiling for Week 16.
