    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel has been the 'MVP' of minicamp, according to Brendan Marks of the Charlotte Observer. 'His catch radius I think has improved,' head coach Ron Rivera said. 'I just think his overall game has improved.'

    Huddle Up: Samuel has battled injuries in his first two years in the league, but he averaged 12.3 yards per touch on 47 touches last season and scored seven times. Primed for a bigger role in the offense, Samuel has WR3 upside if he can stay healthy.

  • Posted: 12/30/2018 3:15pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel ended up with two grabs for 72 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Samuel finished up the season with 39 catches, 495 yards and five touchdowns through the air, with 84 rushing yards and two scores on the ground. He looks to have some big-play potential heading into 2019, making him a nice sleeper for fantasy purposes.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 6:54pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel registered seven receptions for 41 yards on 13 targets in Week 16 against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Samuel was a nice security blanket in the short game for Taylor Heinicke, making his first NFL start. He looks like he could be a quality PPR fantasy option heading into 2019 depending on what kind of personnel moves the team makes at the position in the offseason.

  • Posted: 12/17/2018 8:53pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel managed just one grab for 17 yards on four targets in Week 15 against the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Dec. 17.

    Huddle Up: Samuel entered with 10 grabs for 168 yards over his past two games on 19 targets, but he was invisible in this one. Avoid him in Week 16 for fantasy purposes, although he could be someone to watch heading into the 2019 season.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 1:41pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel posted four grabs for a team-high 80 yards on eight targets in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Samuel, who played his college football at Ohio State, had a nice homecoming. He has 10 receptions for 168 yards on 19 targets in the past two outings to emerge as a solid WR4 or flex option. The Panthers host the Saints in Week 15 on Monday night.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 1:29pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel registered six receptions for 88 yards on 11 targets in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Samuel has been carving out a larger role for himself lately and it culminated in a big game in a losing effort in this one. He should still be treated as WR4 or flex fantasy option going forward, but he might be ready to take another big step in fantasy heading into 2019. Dynasty leaguers might want to pay him some mind.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 2:47pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) practiced in full on Friday, Nov. 30 and he is off the injury report ahead of the Week 13 game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Samuel hasn't put up huge numbers lately, but he is working on a streak of five straight games with two or more grabs while finding the end zone in three of the past four. He has emerged as a decent low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2018 11:59am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Samuel has been more involved in the offense over the last month and has recorded three touchdowns in the last four games. He can be considered at least a flex option in most leagues and could even be a low-end No. 3 receiver in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2018 8:52am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Samuel has a knack for the end zone, but he's a risky flex option despite the Tampa Bay Buccaneers decent matchup.

  • Posted: 11/28/2018 11:41am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: Samuel has come into his own of late, scoring a total of four times in his last four games. If Samuel is ultimately inactive then Jarius Wright would evolve into a flex candidate in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 2:26pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel posted two receptions for 17 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks and he added one run for 25 yards.

    Huddle Up: Samuel hasn't been putting huge yardage totals, but he has scored a total of four touchdowns (three receiving, one rushing) over the past four games. As such, he is worth a look as a WR5 in deeper fantasy leagues. The Panthers play the Buccaneers in Week 13. He had a rushing score and a receiving TD in the first meeting with the Bucs back in Week 9.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 2:00pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel finished with five receptions, 55 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 game against the Detroit Lions on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Samuel has emerged as a useful low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks. He has two or more grabs in four straight games and a total of three touchdowns (two receiving, one rushing) over the past three outings.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 2:45pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel posted two grabs for 25 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added a 33-yard rush for score.

    Huddle Up: Samuel is an athletic, fast play maker and perhaps Ron Rivera will try and get the ball into his hands more going forward. He is a WR5 with some upside heading into Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on a short week.

  • 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.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 10:20am ET

    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.
