Samuel will not take part in South Carolina's bowl game against Virginia on Dec. 29, David Cloninger of The Post and Courier reports.
ANALYSIS
The senior will not take any chances playing in the Belk Bowl prior to gearing up for the NFL Draft this upcoming April. He will finish the year with 62 catches, 882 yards and 11 touchdowns, which are all team-highs across the board. His absence will free up more targets for Bryan Edwards and Shi Smith (back) during the Gamecocks' showdown with Virginia.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2017
2018
The cupboard is relatively bare in Columbia when it comes to South Carolina’s receiving corps, but Samuel is one of the few returning wideouts with legitimate experience. He appeared in five games last season as a redshirt freshman, hauling in 12 of 21 targets for 161 yards and a touchdown. Now that Pharoh Cooper and Jerell Adams are gone to the NFL, Samuel has a legitimate shot to be the team’s top wideout. At 6-0, 205, Samuel is big enough to work on the outside and quick enough to gain separation. The primary issue here may not be with Samuel himself, but rather with the Gamecock offense as a whole. The Gamecocks will be installing a new system under OC Kurt Roper, and given the lack of experience at several key spots, the offense could be a work in progress for much of the season. With that, Samuel’s upside is capped, but he should still push for 50 receptions as the team’s top receiving option.
Samuel is the leading returning receiver for the Gamecocks, but he can impact the game in a variety of ways. Not only did Samuel lead the squad in both receptions and receiving yardage in 2016, but he also scored six rushing touchdowns. With big-bodied Bryan Edwards slated to start opposite him and Hayden Hurst ranked as one of the top tight ends in the country, teams will be unable to focus all of their attention on the versatile Samuel, who even threw a touchdown pass last season. With sophomore quarterback Jake Bentley back under center, Samuel should be one of the top wide receivers in the SEC.
Before a broken leg ended his season after three games, Samuel was on his way to a monster season. Samuel had 15 catches for 250 yards and three scores in that span and added a rushing touchdown. He had two kick returns and both went for touchdowns as well. Those stats underline how electric Samuel is in all facets of the game. Assuming he's back to full strength for Week 1, Samuel will be the focal point of the offense, but defenses can't only key on him with Bryan Edwards in the mix, too. Samuel is a threat to go to the house everytime he touches the ball.
