Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) lost for year

Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 4:07pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Panthers’ worst fears were confirmed with additional medical tests on Curtis Samuel‘s injured left ankle Tuesday. The rookie will miss the rest of the season, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, after being diagnosed with ligament damage.

The Panthers have only four other receivers on their active roster – Devin Funchess, Russell Shepard, Kaelin Clay and Brenton Bersin — but Damiere Byrd is eligible to come off injured reserve for the team’s game against the Saints on Dec. 3. Byrd broke his forearm in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact:

Samuel, a second-round pick, twisted his right ankle in the preseason. He missed Thursday’s practice after tweaking it.

Scouting Report

Week 12 at New York Jets

Devin Funchess had a great game against the Dolphins before the bye last week, catching 5 passes for 92 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Funchess is averaging 7.1 targets per game this year, and while he’s yet to eclipse 100 yards in a single game, he should remain the primary outside target for the Panthers.

The Jets have been very average in general on defense this season, but they have allowed 11 touchdowns to opposing wide receivers. Funchess should be heavily targeted, even with the likely return of Greg Olsen to the lineup. He should be considered a solid WR2 option in all league formats, with considerable upside in a good matchup.
