Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a groin injury Friday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: This was expected from about the moment Samuel aggravated the groin injury that bothered him for most of the summer earlier this week. For what it is worth, head coach Ron Rivera expressed confidence Samuel would be able to return after his three-game absence is over. In the meantime, Terry McLaurin should be locked into a huge target share while Logan Thomas could see a few extra targets while Samuel is away. The one player who could benefit the most, however, is Dyami Brown. The rookie is well worth a stash in most leagues.

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) remained out of practice Thursday, Sept. 9, working on the side instead doing band exercises with a trainer.
Huddle Up: Unless things unexpectedly turn around Friday, it's looking increasingly likely that Samuel will be out Week 1. Be making other fantasy plans ...

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) reportedly tweaked his groin while warming up and did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: It's been a rough go of things for Samuel ever since he joined the Football Team. The ex-Carolina Panther dealt with a groin injury all summer and landed on the COVID list to boot in late July. This latest setback likely makes him a longshot for Week 1 versus the Los Angeles Chargers. Impressive rookie Dyami Brown will likely step up in his place if he can't go and makes for a decent DFS punt play as well as a high-upside flex option in deeper leagues.

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) said he is not sure if he will be available for the Week 1 game. He said his main goal is to be healthy.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will know more about Samuel's status over the next few days. He should have an important role in the passing game when he is healthy but will be a risky option in Week 1. He could be benched if better options are available.

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) 'looked good' and 'moved around well' in his return to practice Monday, Sept. 6, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: It sounds as though Samuel is trending toward playing in Week 1, although it would be safe to assume his snaps will be somewhat limited after not playing at all during the preseason. Fantasy managers should view him as a quality WR4 option to begin the season with enough upside to be a strong WR3 in the weeks ahead.

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) returned to practice Thursday, Sept. 2, and was working on the side. Samuel, though, is expected to be in pads Monday, Sept. 6, and ready to practice with the team, head coach Ron Rivera said. 'We're feeling really confident, and he's had some really good days out there on the side,' Rivera said.
Huddle Up: There were (and are) high hopes for Samuel to become a productive complement to No. 1 WR Terry McLaurin, but we're likely in for a bit of a slow start to the season after he's been out all of the preseason.

Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) will be activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: Samuel will be brought along slowly after missing minicamp and not having had any opportunities to practice during training camp. Assuming he is healthy by the start of the regular season, he can be viewed as a WR3 option in some fantasy leagues since he should have a significant role in the club's offense.
