Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) took full practice reps again Friday. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. Unfortunately for him, it looks like Devin Funchess may return. That would cut into Samuel’s snaps and targets.

Scouting Report

Week 15 vs. New Orleans Saints

Curtis Samuel hasn’t scored a touchdown over the last two weeks, but he’s been targeted 19 times in the passing game and has 168 receiving yards. Samuel has taken advantage of additional opportunities with Devin Funchess hobbled, so much so that he may have taken over his job.

Samuel is risky, but he has a ton of upside as a big-play option down the field for the Panthers. This week, he faces a Saints defense that has allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this year. Samuel is a big play waiting to happen and will likely draw secondary attention from the Saints defense, which may open up big possibilities for him. He’s a risky start, but is worth considering in all leagues due to a great matchup and his recent targets.
