Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) lost for year

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 10 vs. Miami Dolphins

The Panthers said they wanted more speed on the field when they traded Kelvin Benjamin. Curtis Samuel may be pushed by Russell Shepard for snaps, but he definitely provides more speed than the rest of the receivers on Carolina's roster. Samuel was on the field for 75% of the team’s snaps last week, compared to 58% for Shepard, and he was targeted 5 times. He ended up with 3 catches and 1 carry for a total of only 37 yards, but it was good to see him more active in the offense. Samuel is a long-shot to have in your lineup, but he’s worth picking up and has upside against an inconsistent Miami defense if you’re absolutely desperate.
