We heard all the negative reports about Samuel out of training camp, but he still went out there in Week 1 and garnered eight targets and one carry. He was the same inefficient player he was in 2019, totaling just 43 scoreless yards on those opportunities. Did you know that among 157 receivers who've seen at least 100 targets in a season over the last five years, Samuel's 0.96 yards per route run in 2019 was the worst? His 1.31 YPRR in Week 1 was slightly better than Seth Roberts. He did play 72.4 percent of his snaps in the slot, which actually gives him the best matchup on the field against the Bucs, as Sean Murphy-Bunting hasn't been what you'd call good at covering the slot. He's only played 17 NFL games, but in those games, he's been targeted 76 times for 55 receptions, 547 yards, and five touchdowns. Samuel posted 4/70/1 and 5/91/0 against this defense last year, so it's possible he turns out to be a decent play this week, though I'd play some guys with more proven track records over him. He should be considered a WR4/5 option who just might be a dark horse to lead them in receiving this week.
