    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) fully participated in practice Monday, Aug. 21. Head coach Ron Rivera said he is not sure if Samuel will play in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 24, because Samuel has not done much during training camp and the team wants to avoid aggravating the injury.

    Huddle Up: Samuel may be held out until the regular season opener so he can have more time to heal his injured hamstring. He is expected to be a slot receiver for the Panthers, and the team may look to get the ball in his hands in space. Samuel probably can be avoided in most standard leagues but could be a waiver wire option during the season.

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) did not practice Sunday, Aug. 6, and he has missed all but one practice with the injury since training camp began.

    Huddle Up: Samuel can be electric with the ball in his hands, but it remains to be seen how he will be used in Carolina's offense. He is a late-round lottery ticket in redraft leagues but a worthwhile stash candidate in keeper formats.

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 3.

    Huddle Up: Samuel probably will be sidelined until his injured hamstring is completely healed. He is expected to be a slot receiver for the Panthers this season, and team will look to use his quickness in the open field. Owners could consider Samuel as a No. 5 receiver if he is healthy.

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) did not participate in practice Sunday, July 30, but head coach Ron Rivera said he hopes Samuel will be able to return Tuesday, Aug. 1.

    Huddle Up: Samuel probably will be able to return to practice in the next few days and should receive a solid amount of practice time during camp. The Panthers likely will try to get the ball into Samuel's quickly because of his ability to run after the catch. He should be a slot receiver as a rookie and can be a No. 5 receiver in some fantasy leagues.

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel will establish himself as one of Carolina's best receivers, according to NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt, and Brandt believes Samuel could have a Percy-Harvin-type impact as a rookie.

    Huddle Up: If Carolina takes advantage of Samuel's versatility, he could be a dangerous weapon. He is worth taking a chance on as a WR4.

    Carolina Panthers second-round pick WR Curtis Samuel (personal) returned to practice Tuesday, May 30, after missing OTAs last week for personal reasons.

    Huddle Up: Samuel is expected to take over the slot role previously occupied by Ted Ginn Jr. and figures to be used in a host of other ways all over the formation. The Ohio State rookie should be considered a potential fantasy WR4 with upside for more if Kelvin Benjamin doesn't get his weight under control.

    The Carolina Panthers selected Ohio State WR Curtis Samuel with the No. 40 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

    Huddle Up: Samuel likely will be used as a slot receiver and will take over the role that Ted Ginn Jr. used to handle. He will have some value in standard leagues this season but will not be a weekly starting option. Owners in keeper leagues should consider him a No. 3 receiver or flex option in the future.
