What You Need to Know:

  • Washington signed Samuel a year ago at an $11.5 million average on a 3-year deal. OC Scott Turner – who worked with Samuel in Carolina – said at the time: “High energy guy, really intelligent. You can do a lot of different things with him. He’s only 24 years old, I think he’s just scratching the surface on what he’s capable of.”
  • That surface remains largely intact, because Samuel was only able to make it onto the field for 84 total snaps across 5 games in his Washington debut campaign. He totaled 9 targets and caught 4 of his 6 passes for the season in a single game.
  • It’s tough to know how Washington will deploy Samuel. His average target depths across 4 Panthers seasons varied wildly:
    • 9.4
    • 12.2
    • 14.8
    • 7.5
  • Washington added Jahan Dotson with the 16th overall pick in the draft to a WR corps that returns leader Terry McLaurin. Those 2 look like the favorites outside, especially after HC Ron Rivera compared Dotson to Steve Smith and DeSean Jackson.
  • In Carolina, Samuel went from spending less than 34% of his time in the slot in each of his first 3 seasons to 71.4% in his final year there. That season predictably aligned with his shortest ADOT. But it also came after Rivera and Turner got fired.
  • Samuel’s carries increased every year with the Panthers, from 4 to 8 to 19 to 41. That final tally came in the year Christian McCaffrey played only 3 games.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

The last time we saw Samuel healthy with a team coached by HC Ron Rivera and OC Scott Turner, they were trying to turn him into a downfield weapon. It didn’t work, but not much did in a season that saw Kyle Allen and Will Grier combine for 14 starts. This Washington squad sports Terry McLaurin, though, and added Jahan Dotson. That might keep Samuel primarily in the slot. In that case, he would need target volume to drive his value, and the situation isn’t great for upside in that category. It appears Samuel has moved beyond the groin injury that basically cost him all of 2021. But we’ll need to watch the plan for his 2022 usage to see if there’s enough upside to highlight him in the rankings.

Terry McLaurin, WR WAS

8:48pm EST 11/27/22

McLaurin posts modest numbers on limited passing day

The Commanders threw for just 138 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons, running 37 times vs. just 23 dropbacks. WR Terry McLaurin led the team in targets (6), catches (4) and receiving yards (48), while no teammate exceeded 24 yards. TE John Bates checked in next with 3 catches for 24 yards on 4 targets. He and RB Brian Robinson Jr. caught QB Taylor Heinicke's 2 TD throws. Logan Thomas continued to lead TEs in routes but trailed Bates by 1 target and logged just 1 catch for 7 yards. WRs Jahan Dotson and Curtis Samuel combined or 0 catches on 1 target.

Commanders WR Jahan Dotson saw his playing time rebound in his 2nd game back from a hamstring injury Sunday. He matched WR Terry McLaurin in running a route on 82% of Taylor Heinicke's dropbacks. WR Curtis Samuel trailed them by just 2 routes, returning the trio's playing time to where it was at the start of the year. McLaurin still led the team with 7 targets, catching 4 for 55 yards. Dotson and Samuel finished with just 2 targets and 1 catch apiece. Samuel, though, scored the team's only offensive TD on a 10-yard run. A Week 12 date with Atlanta presents upside for everyone on offense.

Commanders WR Terry McLaurin led the team in targets for the 2nd straight game in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. He caught 5 of 9 for 56 yards. WR Curtis Samuel beat him in receiving yards, taking his 3 catches for 65 yards and a TD. His 49-yard score accounted for most of that, though, and came on an absurd play. QB Taylor Heinicke threw a deep ball into triple coverage. One of the Minnesota CBs ran into an official, while the other 2 misplayed the ball. That allowed Samuel to make a catch going to the ground and then roll into the end zone. Heinicke totaled just 149 passing yards for the game. His other TD pass went to WR Dax Milne. Washington visits Philadelphia next Monday night.

Commanders WR Jahan Dotson (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. The rookie has yet to practice since re-injuring his hamstring on October 20. although HC Ron Rivera said Friday that he's hoping to get Dotson back on the field next week. Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel will continue to operate as Washington's clear top 2 WRs this weekend.

Commanders WR Terry McLaurin posted a 6-113 receiving line in Sunday's win at Indianapolis. His 8 targets led the team, marking the 1st time this season that McLaurin has held that position by himself. RB Antonio Gibson checked in 2nd (7), with RB J.D. McKissic next (5). WR Curtis Samuel -- who had led or tied for the lead in every previous game -- checked in 4th with 4 targets. He caught 3 of those for 50 yards and rushed 4 times for 29 more.
