Draft note
by John Paulsen
Samuel had terrible luck on his deep balls last season. Just five of his 27 deep ball targets (20+ yards downfield) were deemed catchable (per PFF), and he caught all five. Of the 49 receivers with at least 15 deep ball targets last year, Samuel was 49th in catchable target rate. Had he enjoyed league-average accuracy, he would project to catch an additional 6.7 passes for another 218 receiving yards. That would have put him at 60-845 instead of 54-627. Assuming he didn’t catch any more touchdowns, which is being conservative, he would have finished as the No. 25 receiver instead of his actual No. 36 finish (half-PPR). Throw in two more touchdowns and he would have outscored Stefon Diggs as last year’s No. 21 receiver. The Saints didn’t ask Teddy Bridgewater to throw deep very often, but when they did, he usually delivered. Per Sports Info Solutions, nine of Bridgewater’s 14 deep ball attempts were on target, which was No. 5 among the 44 quarterbacks with at least 11 deep ball attempts. Bridgewater wasn’t particularly accurate the last time he saw significant playing time in 2015, but his performance in 2019 gives Samuel some hope in 2020.

CAR WR Curtis Samuel - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Chicago Bears

Curtis Samuel is still getting work as the WR3 in the Panthers’ offense, but he’s not putting up consistent enough numbers to warrant legit fantasy consideration. He had five catches and 36 yards las week, and is averaging three carries and 12.6 rushing yards per game, but he’s yet to score a touchdown and has only two targets in the red zone. Samuel’s production looks to be too volatile, at best, to warrant serious lineup consideration while he remains third on the depth chart.

Update: Looks like Samuel is out, so be sure to get him out of your lineup (if he was in there in the first place).
