2018 Fantasy Outlook
Samuel was drafted in the second round last year as a utility player capable of adding devastating speed to the Panthers offense. However, injuries largely derailed his rookie campaign, leaving him in need of proving himself again this time around. With increased competition at wide receiver, Samuel may be restricted to certain packages that highlight his ability in space. Read Past Outlooks

Leading receiver in Week 14 loss
WRCarolina Panthers
December 9, 2018
Samuel caught four of eight targets for a team-leading 80 yards in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Browns.
ANALYSIS
Samuel's coming into his own late in his second season, with 168 receiving yards over the past two weeks. While he doesn't have a touchdown over this strong recent stretch, Samuel does have six total scores (four receiving, two rushing) this season. Deep-league owners could do much worse than Samuel with Carolina set to host the Saints in Week 15.

Job Battles: Funchess Falling
5 days ago
Devin Funchess is still probably a good prospect at wide receiver, but Curtis Samuel and D.J. Moore threaten to make him irrelevant all the same.
2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Panthers' second round pick, Samuel finds himself in an interesting spot. While the team isn't deep at WR -- No. 1 option Kelvin Benjamin showed up to offseason activities in sub-optimal condition, and ostensible No. 2 Devin Funchess has been inconsistent -- it also drafted RB Christian McCaffrey in the first round, and the two have somewhat overlapping skill sets. At 5-11, 197, Samuel, is blazingly fast -- 4.31 40 -- and athletic -- 37-inch vertical and 133-inch broad jump. As such, he's dangerous with the ball in his hands, and a threat as a ballcarrier or receiver. Of course, much of that description could apply to McCaffery, so Samuel figures to be used mostly as a slot receiver. Don't expect much red-zone work, either -- tight end Greg Olsen and the 6-5 Benjamin are likely to dominate the targets down there.
