Recent Player News

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 6:15pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel finished with two grabs for 37 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 5 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Samuel was making his season debut and he was able to secure a score. The Panthers could use some playmakers, and he could end up emerging as the No. 2 wideout in Carolina before too long. He is a player to monitor closely over the next game or two. Samuel has WR4 or flex fantasy potential sooner rather than later.

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (heart, illness), is expected to make his 2018 debut Sunday, Oct. 7, and return kicks against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Samuel has been sidelined for the first quarter of the season with an irregular heartbeat and now will be worked back into playing time. As aforementioned, though, it will mainly come on special teams, and he is not yet rosterable -- let alone usable -- in the the majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/1/2018 8:55pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel has been using a personal JUGS machine to try to improve his hands this offseason, and Bill Voth of Panthers.com believes Samuel could 'eventually emerge' as the No. 3 receiver.

    Huddle Up: An ankle injury ended his rookie season prematurely, but Samuel is expected to be ready for training camp. He has the speed to turn any touch into a big play, but a lack of consistency limits his appeal to dynasty formats for the time being.

  • Posted: 3/27/2018 9:04am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) is reportedly doing some straight-ahead running but will be slowly worked back into cutting and breaking on his surgically repaired ankle throughout the offseason, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

    Huddle Up: Rivera said adding Torrey Smith and Jarius Wright earlier this month were done in part to give Samuel an opportunity to work back into the rotation at a pace 'not detrimental to his physical recovery,' so his status for Week 1 cannot be taken for granted. The second-year pro can probably be avoided in most fantasy drafts this summer.

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Nov. 24. WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list in a corresponding move.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Ron Rivera told Panthers.com the plan is ease Olsen back in 'judiciously,' so owners would be advised to sit him this week in fantasy. Regardless, it appears he will have at least one or two full games under his belt before most owners have to decide if he will be a critical part of their fantasy playoff run or not.

  • Posted: 11/14/2017 12:54pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) will be shut down for the remainder of the season, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Kelvin Benjamin gone and now Samuel out for Carolina, Devin Funchess and Russell Shepard comprise the Panthers' top two wide receivers. Christian McCaffrey will continue to play an integral role in the passing game, but Shepard is worth a pickup if available.

  • Posted: 11/14/2017 8:44am ET

    Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) could have a worse injury than the original thought of a high ankle sprain, according to a team source.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like Samuel's season could be over. Russell Shepard will likely see a boost and is worth snagging off waivers.

  • Posted: 11/13/2017 9:02pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel finished with five catches on seven targets for 45 yards in the team's Week 10 game Monday, Nov. 13, versus the Miami Dolphins before having to leave late in the third quarter with an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Both marks were career highs for the rookie, who has flashed some unique potential since Kelvin Benjamin was dealt away leading up to the trade deadline. Unfortunately, with Samuel having to be helped to the locker room, it's possible that he misses some time, in which case Russell Shepard would get a notable boost.

  • Posted: 11/13/2017 8:03pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) left the team's game Monday, Nov. 13, against the Miami Dolphins after injuring his left ankle late in the third quarter when S Reshad Jones accidentally rolled over it in the end zone. Samuel had to be helped to the locker room and he's being considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Tough break for the rookie out of Ohio State, as Samuel had registered career highs in receptions (five) and receiving yards (45) in this one before having to depart. If he ends up missing time, Devin Funchess and Russell Shepard would benefit considerably.

  • Posted: 11/11/2017 12:59pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) fully participate in practice Saturday, Nov. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 10. The Panthers did not hold a practice Saturday, so his practice designation is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Samuel should be receiving more playing time during the second half of the season, but owners should avoid him in all leagues until he posts more productive numbers.

  • Posted: 11/10/2017 3:37pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) was able to take part in a full practice session Friday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Samuel is in line for increased targets since Kelvin Benjamin was jettisoned, and he has WR4 or flex potential down the stretch working as the No. 2 receiver opposite Devin Funchess.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 11:48am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Samuel was targeted five times in Week 9 and will be more involved in the passing game with the trade of Kelvin Benjamin. He has not posted more than 23 yards in any game this season and should be avoided in fantasy leagues until he posts better numbers.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 2:21pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel racked up three receptions for 23 yards on five targets in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Samuel, and all other Carolina receivers, bumped up a spot on the depth chart when Kelvin Benjamin was shipped to Buffalo earlier in the week. The rookie out of Ohio State is worth watching in the coming weeks, but he should only be trusted as a WR5 in deeper fantasy leagues right now.
