Washington adds Samuel | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Washington signed WR Curtis Samuel to a 3-year, $34.5 million deal, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's a nice landing spot. Samuel is familiar with OC Scott Turner's offense after spending 2018 and 2019 with him in Carolina. And he should slide right in as the clear #2 WR behind Terry McLaurin. Samuel improved his numbers all 4 years with the Panthers, culminating with a 77-851-3 line this past season. He also carried 72 times over that 4-year span, including a 19-130-1 line under Turner in 2019.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday night's game against the Packers. He was added to the injury report and limited on Thursday. We'll look for updates on Samuel and will get his game status around 7 pm ET on Saturday. Samuel has finished as a top-32 half-PPR WR in 6 of his last 7 outings.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel has been activated from the COVID list. He was deemed a high-risk close contact but never actually tested positive for the virus. He should be able to practice Friday and play against the Broncos this weekend. Samuel has averaged a solid 6.8 targets and 2.2 carries per game over his last 5 and figures to get a usage boost on Sunday with WR D.J. Moore (COVID) out.

In addition to WR D.J. Moore, the Panthers have placed WR Curtis Samuel on the COVID list. The timing almost certainly knocks him out for their Week 14 clash with Denver. Other players Carolina has placed on the COVID list include LB Shaq Thompson and DT Derrick Brown. We'll see if the team's outbreak impacts the 1 p.m. ET Sunday kickoff.

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.
