Expert Note
View More Notes

Samuel hasn't crossed 60 receiving yards this season or played more than 65% of the snaps. Asking Sam Howell to support at least or maybe two pass catchers currently is a struggle, much less a tertiary option like Samuel. Samuel has a 12.7% Target share and a 10.4% air yard share while running about 73% of his routes from the slot. He'll see Taron Johnson (2022: 71.8% catch rate and 107.7 passer rating) in coverage for most of the day. The matchup is good, so if you are in a deep league, he's flex-worthy. Samuel popped up on the injury report on Friday (DNP) with a hip injury. He's been listed as questionable. Week 3 Positional Value: Deep league flex play (if active)

Curtis Samuel leads team in receiving Sunday

Curtis Samuel caught 2-of-4 targets for a team-high 54 yards in Sunday's 37-3 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

The Commanders' offense as a whole was bad in Week 3, but Samuel ended up leading the entire team with 54 receiving yards on the day. His opportunities were limited, but he did well with what he was given, relative to the rest of the team. He could have fantasy value down the road if there's an injury in Washington's receiving core, but for now, he doesn't hold significant value in any fantasy formats.
