Receiving skills put him in play as RB2. and TE1 24 catches in last 4
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Samuels may not have gotten in the end zone last week, but he did give fantasy owners 18 touches and over 90 yards from scrimmage. That is about what they can expect this week in another great matchup versus the Patriots so make sure to get him in your starting lineup.Moore has been exceptional over the past month and while Lattimore may be guarding him for the majority of the game, there is no matchup at this point that should prevent you from starting the talented rookie.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Samuels operated as the clear lead back in the absence of James Conner last week, finishing with 18 touches for 92 yards - and his day would have likely been even better if Ben Roethlisberger had not missed most of the second half with a rib injury. Samuels did have a touchdown vultured by Stevan Ridley, but will nonetheless be a solid RB2 (or high-end TE1) this week if Conner misses another game. New England-Pittsburgh projects to be a back-and-forth high-scoring affair, so you'll want to start most of the key skill position players in this contest. 
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Moore has drawn a 22 percent target share in Carolina's last four games, and he merited eight looks in consecutive contests with Devin Funchess back in the lineup. For all of their recent improvements, the Saints have relinquished an NFL-high 200 catches for 2,802 yards to opposing wide receivers. The steady volume propels him to the edge of WR2/3 consideration.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Samuels should be starting again this week and he had 92 yards from scrimmage last week. That easily puts him in the TE1 discussion this week for leagues that allow him to be used at tight end. He is a RB3 / flex option at running back. Moore is starting to settle in as a WR3 and he has upside in a likely shootout with the New Orleans Saints.
