The quarterback play was atrocious in Carolina last year, but it was Samuel who was the least efficient of all the pass catchers. In fact, among the 157 wide receivers who've seen at least 100 targets over the last five years, Samuel's 0.96 yards per route run was the worst. There's so much competition for targets with D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, Christian McCaffrey, and Ian Thomas, it's hard to see Samuel being a consistent fantasy option.

Curtis Samuel ‘fits the mold’ of what Panthers are trying to do on offense

Carolina offensive coordinator Joe Brady spoke highly of WR Curtis Samuel, saying, “Curtis is a playmaker. He fits the mold of what we’re looking for.”

Fantasy Impact

Samuel has improved each season from his rookie year in 2017 through last season, when he caught 54 balls for 627 and six touchdowns. He’ll be operating with a new coaching staff and a new quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater in his fourth-year with the Panthers. Brady’s praise of Samuel is certainly something to take note of, however, the Panthers now have a relatively crowded wide receiver room with the addition of former Jets WR Robby Anderson. He’ll also be competing with Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore for targets from Bridgewater this season. Samuel enters into the final year of his contract looking to prove his worth as a former 2nd-round pick out of Ohio State. He’s currently ranked WR59 in the FantasyPros ECR, but could be a sleeper in fantasy leagues this season with a lower price tag than in years past.
