Mike Tagliere

With Christian McCaffrey out of the lineup, I'm guessing the Chargers get Samuel a lot more involved in the backfield. He's totaled five carries to this point while getting 10 targets (just two in Week 2), so it should be fair to project him for 10 opportunities moving forward. The Chargers have surprisingly gone with Michael Davis on the perimeter and moved Chris Harris Jr. into the slot over Desmond King, who's been a sturdy presence in the slot over the last few years. King even went to social media this week, asking why he's not on the field. It's a good question. Davis is a former undrafted free agent who's been competent, but Harris proved last year he's capable of handling perimeter receivers, so why then don't go with a combination of Casey Hayward, Harris, and King? I don't know. But Harris is a real problem for Samuel, as he's one of the best cornerback in the league. He got burned on a 54-yard touchdown last week, but it required an insane throw by Patrick Mahomes to get done, something we won't see Bridgewater doing. Samuel gets a bump in appeal with McCaffrey out, but the matchup isn't a good one, making him a risky WR4/5.

Samuel hasn't exactly been someone that you can rely on for fantasy football and that's unlikely to change in this matchup. He can remain on your bench.
