Draft note
by John Paulsen
Washington gave him the third-biggest contract for a receiver in free agency, and he’s now reunited with OC Scott Turner and HC Ron Rivera, who both coached him in Carolina. It’s normally wise to shy away from receivers who switch teams unless they’re likely to see an increase in targets and/or an upgrade at quarterback, but Samuel may get both. He saw 97 targets last season in Carolina and he should surpass that in Washington, provided he stays healthy. The Football Team is desperate for a playmaking WR2 and they don’t want to feed J.D. McKissic 110 targets again this year. Samuel can also run the ball, which will help his floor. Ryan Fitzpatrick is probably an upgrade over Teddy Bridgewater, and he’s one of the better deep-ball passers in the league.

CAR WR Curtis Samuel - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. New Orleans Saints

Curtis Samuel was active in the run game last week against Washington, rushing seven times for 52 yards. He also caught all five of his targets for 106 yards, giving him a strong fantasy outing, despite not finding the end zone. Samuel had a great run of five touchdowns over five games in the middle of the season, but has been scoreless in his last four. Still, he has 70 catches on 86 targets this year and is clearly an active part of the offense.

This week, Samuel faces a Saints defense that ranks seventh in aFPA to opposing wide receivers this year. Expect another busy day of targets, giving him upside, despite a difficult matchup. We have him ranked as a WR2 option this week, with a high floor in PPR formats.
