Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
This has been a wacky fantasy football season and it's exemplified by the fact that Samuel had just one reception last week, but he finished as the WR16 on the week. Samuel was used as a substitute for the running game this past week and he absolutely delivered. On eight carries, Samuel was able to go for 79 yards and a touchdown and he now has finished as a top-20 RB in six of his last seven games. The usage for Samuel is going to be difficult to project as far as where it comes, but in a matchup against Minnesota that's allowing the most fantasy points to opposing WRs this season, Samuel belongs in your starting lineup as a top-10 option. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Samuel has posted double-digit fantasy points in 5 of his last 6 games. He is an elite WR1 at home against a Vikings team that is 32nd against fantasy wide receivers over the last 5 weeks.
