Former Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is signing with the Washington Football Team on a three-year, $34.5M deal.
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.
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.
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.
Panthers WR Curtis Samuel caught 7-of-11 targets for 118 yards while rising three times for three yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.
Samuel has now posted 121+ yards in back-to-back games to end the season. He's picked it up in the second-half following a shotty start. Samuel will look for a complete season in 2021.
Panthers WR Curtis Samuel caught all five of his targets for 106 yards while adding seven carries for 52 yards on the ground in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Football Team.
Samuel did not score, but still accumulated 158 total yards, which is a season-high for the versatile receiver. Samuel will look to finish the year on a good note in Week 17 versus the Saints.
Curtis Samuel, who was listed as questionable, is active for Week 16.
Samuel has seemingly fought through a questionable tag every game this season. With Christian McCaffrey out, he should see a few carries and a decent out of targets. He makes for a risky flex play against a stout Washington defense.
