Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He’s a WR4 in fantasy lineups.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is expected to play against the Saints today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Samuel missed Week 6 and averaged just 49 scoreless yards over the first 5 games. He's not a great fantasy bet.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. Even if he plays, he can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups at less than 100%.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bears. Hopefully he wasn’t part of your Week 6 plans — but Samuel’s absence would free up a few extra targets for WR Robby Anderson, WR D.J. Moore and RB Mike Davis.

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.
