According to Jim Szoke of WBT and WFNZ Radio in North Carolina, Panthers HC Matt Rhule "loves" the versatility of WR Curtis Samuel "at RB, slot, outside" and wants to use the young receiver "like he was at Ohio State." That's what we've been hoping to hear. That would mark a significant change from Samuel's 2019 role, which found him tied for 10th among wideouts in deep targets. Blame Kyle Allen more than Samuel for the WR catching just 5 of those 27 tries, but working shorter would also put him in line with Teddy Bridgewater's strength: short-range accuracy. Samuel began his college career as a RB and still carried 97 times vs. 74 receptions in his final season at Ohio State. In a Carolina offense with little behind Christian McCaffrey in the backfield, there's plenty of room for Samuel to take on a decent-to-significant rushing role. He's an intriguing shot to take around his ADP.

WR Dyami Brown (knee) is listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. With WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) also questionable, Adam Humphries, Deandre Carter and Dax Milne are Washington's only healthy WRs. It's obviously a concern for QB Taylor Heinicke.
