Carolina Panthers QB Kyle Allen completed 25-of-41 passes for 295 yards, no touchdowns and one interception, while RB Christian McCaffrey rushed nine times for 26 yards and a touchdown while adding seven grabs for 72 yards on 10 targets. He became the third player in NFL history to post 1,000 rushing and 1,000 receiving yards in a single season. WR Brandon Zylstra stepped up with a team-high 96 receiving yards on six grabs across eight targets. WR Curtis Samuel finished up with two grabs for 13 yards, and TE Greg Olsen was limited to two catches for 12 yards.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel logged just two catches for 17 yards during the loss to the Colts on Sunday. With rookie quarterback Will Grier unable to get anything done by throwing three interceptions on the day, Samuel didn't produce, even with the exit of D.J. Moore, who was ruled out after suffering a concussion. The 23-year-old hasn't been the most efficient wideout from a statistical standpoint this season, and with Moore and Christian McCaffrey consuming an abundance of targets on a week-to-week basis, his success is dependent on whether or not he can find the end zone. He could see some more looks from whoever is under center against the Saints if Moore can't play, but he isn't a consistent option for those still playing in fantasy leagues in Week 17.
Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel posted two catches for 17 yards in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts while adding two runs for four yards.
Fantasy Spin: Samuel needs plays down the field to utilize his speed and that just wasn't happening with a rookie QB under center throwing the short and intermediate stuff. The Panthers host the New Orleans Saints in Week 17 to wrap up the season.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel (knee) is officially active for Week 16 against the Colts. Samuel has scored in two of his last three games, but he hasn't gone over 100 yards in a single game this season and is even more risky as a WR3 with rookie quarterback Will Grier making his first career NFL start this weekend. D.J. Moore is the much safer fantasy weapon at wideout in Carolina than Samuel, and the latter will also be at risk of an in-game setback after injuring his knee in practice this week.
Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is active for Week 16's game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Samuel had been listed as questionable on the injury report due to a minor knee injury sustained at practice Thursday, Dec. 19. He should see a decent number of targets this afternoon but makes a risky starting option because he has been held under 40 receiving yards in five of his last six contests.
Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Samuel probably will be a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list. He will see a decent amount of targets in the passing game if he plays but can be benched if fantasy players have better options available.
Carolina Panthers LB/DE Marquis Haynes (knee), OL Garrett McGhin (ankle) and LB Shaq Thompson (ankle) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 16 versus the Indianapolis Colts. DT Vernon Butler (illness) and WR Curtis Samuel (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 20, and are listed as questionable. RB Reggie Bonnafon (illness), LB/DE Mario Addison (knee), DT Gerald McCoy (knee), S Eric Reid (shoulder), RB Christian McCaffrey (rest), TE Greg Olsen (concussion) and TE Ian Thomas (back) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel (knee) didn't practice on Friday and is questionable for Week 16 against the Colts on the road. Samuel was a mid-week addition to the injury report, which is never a good sign. We'd consider him a true game-time decision this weekend, but luckily the Panthers have an early game on Sunday. Samuel's outlook was already dimmed a bit with rookie quarterback Will Grier getting the start for fantasy finals week, but now he's an even riskier boom/bust WR3 for fantasy owners. D.J. Moore and tight end Greg Olsen would likely see increased looks in the passing game if Samuel is inactive, but this offense might lean even more on stud running back Christian McCaffrey with Grier under center.
Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec 19.
Fantasy Spin: Samuel has had a solid role in the passing game during the second half of the season and has two touchdowns in the last three games but has been held to under 40 yards in five of the last six games. Fantasy players can consider keeping Samuel on the bench if they have better options available.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel (knee) was added to the Week 16 injury report and was limited in practice on Thursday. It's definitely concerning, but another limited practice on Friday would put Samuel on track to face the Colts this Sunday during fantasy finals week. The 23-year-old has touchdowns in two of his last three games, but he doesn't have a single 100-yard contest in 2019, and the presence of rookie quarterback Will Grier under center against Indy won't exactly boost his upside against the Colts. Consider Samuel more of a WR4 with everything on the line in Week 16.
Carolina Panthers DE/LB Mario Addison (shoulder), DT Vernon Butler (illness), DE/LB Marquis Haynes (knee), OT Garrett McGhin (ankle) and LB Shaq Thompson (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 19. WR Curtis Samuel (knee) was limited. RB Reggie Bonnafon (illness), RB Christian McCaffrey (rest), DT Gerald McCoy (knee), TE Greg Olsen (concussion) and S Eric Reid (shoulder) practiced in full.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel finished with five receptions for 31 yards and a score during the loss to the Seahawks on Sunday. He also added 23 rushing yards on four attempts. After hauling in just two catches in Week 14 against the Falcons, Samuel produced another touchdown, his seventh on the year. He routinely sees fewer targets than Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore, but the potential is always there to find the end zone on a week-to-week basis for the 23-year-old.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel is coming off of a two-catch, 25-yard performance against the Falcons in Week 14. Despite this, the 23-year-old has five receiving touchdowns on the year and has the capacity for another against an average Seahawks Defense. Fantasy managers need to understand that there is some risk involved with Samuel in Week 15, but the upside is equally there.
Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel landed two of his four targets for 25 yards at the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He added three rushes for 17 yards.
Fantasy Spin: It was a disaster of a performance for fantasy purposes, but luckily Samuel is a cog in the wheel and not the engine that powers your machine. The Seahawks host Carolina in Week 15, and Samuel is a reasonable WR3 or flex option in any scoring format.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel will look to build off of the efficient showing that he had against the Redskins. After struggling against the Saints in Week 12, Samuel got his act together in Week 13 by finishing with four catches for 65 yards and a score against Washington. While that wasn't the most brilliant fantasy performance that we've seen out of the 23-year-old, he has the potential to score on any given week. With Greg Olsen (concussion) out against Atlanta, look for Samuel to get some extra attention from Kyle Allen, making him a decent option in deeper formats.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel hauled in 4-of-7 targets for 65 yards and one touchdown in the Panthers loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 13. Samuel would have easily had another score in the first quarter but Kyle Allen's pass ended up being badly underthrown, resulting in a 33 yard gain. Sound familiar? Samuel has been the victim of subpar quarterback play all season long, which has locked him in as a weekly boom-or-bust candidate. He will slot in as such in Week 14 when the Panthers take on the Atlanta Falcons.
Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel posted four grabs for 65 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins.
Fantasy Spin: Samuel hasn't been able to post a 100-yard game yet this season, but he has a total of five touchdown receptions and one rushing score while posting three or more grabs in 11 of his 12 outings. He is a solid WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues. He'll face the Atlanta Falcons on the road in Week 14.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel had just one catch for nine yards against the Saints in Week 12. While he did manage to gain 40 yards on four carries in that one, his lack of production on the receiving end was less than disappointing for fantasy owners who were hoping for big things from the 23-year-old. While he is always a threat to find the end zone, he continues to be relegated to the No. 3 offensive option behind Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore this season. He is worth a start in all formats against Washington on Sunday, but mostly in deeper leagues for those who have nowhere else to turn.
Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Fantasy Spin: Samuel has been targeted 24 times over the last four games but has not posted great numbers in three of those games. He will have a favorable matchup this week and can be at least a flex option in leagues.
