WFT is extremely thin at tight end, but John Bates looked good in his first extended look. Samuel's positive week of practice could be parlayed into his first start in a month. It is also a revenge game scenario for Samuel, a narrative that could make him a flex option Week 11.
WAS WR Curtis Samuel - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 5 vs. New Orleans Saints
Curtis Samuel's debut game for Washington was a bit of a dud as he finished 4-19 on four targets. While he did return, he still seems to be recovering from his groin injury as he played on just 37% of the offensive snaps. He's also been held out of practice so far this week. Samuel should be a good play when healthy, but it's hard to trust a receiver who could be on a snap count. He gets a good matchup against the Saints this week, but his health is concerning. He's not much more than a WR5 play this week.
