Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel rushed four times for 26 yards in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added two receptions for 13 yards on his only two targets.
Huddle Up: Samuel is a playmaker with the ability to take the ball to the house, and he could potentially see more touches in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers if RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) needs more time to get over his injury.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) is dealing with a tight hamstring, according to head coach Matt Rhule.
Huddle Up: Samuel probably will be sidelined for a few days but does not appear to be in danger of missing the start of the season. He is coming off a solid 2019 season and should see a decent amount of touches because of his playmaking ability. He has a chance to be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is expected to be used in space all around the field, according to offensive coordinator Joe Brady. 'Curtis is going to be critical to success,' Brady said. 'Curtis is the one that I can't wait to see him do what he does on the field. Curtis is a playmaker. He fits the mold of what we're looking for in this type of offense, a guy that you can utilize all around the field and get the ball in the hands and good things happen. I think you saw stuff last year that shows that he can be a big-play wide receiver, down the field. We're getting the ball in space and I'm excited for him to take the next leap.'
Huddle Up: Samuel will be a mid-to-late-round flyer as a WR4 that could blossom into a WR3 if everything clicks.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is one of the players offensive coordinator Joe Brady is excited to work with this upcoming season.
Huddle Up: Samuel likely will be used in the slot this season but could also be used in the running game because of his playmaking abilities. Fantasy players may want to keep an eye on him during the preseason to get an idea of his role. He has a chance to be at least a No. 4 receiver in leagues.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel continues to draw interest from teams pursing a trade. The Panthers haven't been interested so far, but they could if they receive an offer they can't refuse over the next few days.
Huddle Up: Samuel's third season was his most productive yet with 54 receptions, 757 yards from scrimmage and seven total TDs, but the addition of former Jets WR Robby Anderson has made the Carolina WR room that much more crowded. It will certainly be something to keep an eye on if a team misses out on a wideout in the draft and turns its sights to dealing for Samuel.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is not on the trade block and likely will not be moved this offseason, according to The Athletic's Joseph Person.
Huddle Up: The Panthers have added multiple receivers this offseason, but Samuel likely will be a slot receiver next season if he is still on the team. He posted 627 yards and six touchdowns this past season and can be a late round option in fantasy drafts.
