Curtis Samuel placed on Reserve/COVID-19 list

The Washington Football Team has placed WR Curtis Samuel on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fantasy Impact

Samuel missed the first day of training camp and it’s now been reveled the team has placed him on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. It’s unclear if he tested positive or not, but he’ll miss at least a bit of time while in the health and safety protocols. Adam Humphries and Dyami Brown could see a few extra looks early in camp with Samuel out.

Curtis Samuel (groin) placed on PUP list

The Washington Football Team placed WR Curtis Samuel (groin) on the PUP list.

Fantasy Impact

Samuel was dealing with a groin injury back in June and it appears he isn't ready to practice just yet. Hopefully Washington is just being cautious with this decision, but it's a situation to monitor moving forward.

Curtis Samuel dealing with a groin injury at WFT minicamp

Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera says WR Curtis Samuel is dealing with a groin injury.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear how serious the injury is, but one would think that Samuel won't practice at all this week out of precaution. Samuel signed a three-year, $34.5 million deal with Washington during free agency, and he could be in store for a career-year in terms of usage.

Curtis Samuel signing a three-year, $35M deal with Washington

Former Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is signing with the Washington Football Team on a three-year, $34.5M deal.

Fantasy Impact

Samuel joins Washington after a career year in Carolina, catching 77 balls for 851 yards and three touchdowns. He also totaled 200 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 41 carries. He’ll reunite with head coach Ron Rivera in Washington, and will immediately step into a WR2 role working in tandem with Terry McLaurin. Consider Samuel a low-end WR2 from a fantasy perspective catching passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick. This offense should be fun to watch.

Curtis Samuel a possible target for the Washington Football Team

NBC Sports Washington hinted at the possibility of UFA WR Curtis Samuel reuniting with former HC Ron Rivera in Washington as the wide receiver market remains stagnant.

Fantasy Impact

Rivera notably spent a second-round pick on Samuel in 2017, and with the former Panther on the open market, Washington could be in the mix for his services. Samuel is coming off a career-year with 77 receptions for 851 yards with five total touchdowns in 2020. The Washington Football Team signed gunslinger Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason, so a change of scenery could boost Samuel's value. A few dominos need to fall in terms of WR signings, but Samuel should find a home soon enough.
