Curtis Samuel Week 8 Outlook - Falcons at Panthers

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 29th 2020, 8:37am EDT

He returned to the lineup last week and proceeded to see six targets. He's caught 25-of-29 targets this year, and though they've only amounted to 231 yards and no touchdowns, he has a role in this offense. He also happens to have a great matchup in the slot with Isaiah Oliver. No cornerback in the NFL has allowed more yards in his coverage (453) than Oliver. It is worth noting that they just moved him to the slot a couple weeks ago, so he's in a new role, though he hasn't done much better with it. On the 17 slot targets in coverage, he's allowed 14/160/0. If you're looking for someone who's on waivers in most leagues who has a shot at a big game, Samuel makes sense as a risk/reward WR4/5 in this matchup, especially given his 16 touches over the last two games he played.
