  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Big usage again

    Samuel caught seven passes for 48 yards on 10 targets against Philadelphia on Sunday. Samuel also saw three carries for 13 yards. Samuel's fantasy point total was underwhelming in this game, but the volume of touches was again sky high, giving reason for his fantasy investors to feel continued optimism even though the final numbers were modest relative to Samuel's first pair of contests. Samuel is up to 30 targets and eight carries in three games -- if he even continues to approximate that type of usage, he'll be one of the bigger fantasy steals of 2022.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Start Him in PPR (Lineup Decisions)

    I'm good with starting the target-heavy Samuel over Allen Robinson, Marquise Brown, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett in PPR, but not in non-PPR.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Week 3 Waiver Priority List

    Curtis Samuel has the chance to be a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in the majority of leagues as long as he's healthy and playing like this. He has 20 targets to open the season, and he's converted them into 15 catches for 133 yards and two touchdowns. He also has five carries for 38 yards. We'll see how long Samuel can keep this up considering his injury history -- as well as the presence of Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson, Logan Thomas and the running backs -- but Samuel is worth adding now for up to 15 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Week 3 Early Waiver Targets (Add/Drop)

    Two games in, Samuel has led the Commanders in targets twice. He's probably not going to be the big-play guy either Terry McLaurin or Jahan Dotson are, given how they've been used so far, but he was used more down the field this week than he was in Week 1 – he had 55 air yards Sunday after having just 11 in Week 1. Samuel added another carry for 21 yards after he had four carries in Week 1. As long as he's healthy, Samuel clearly has a big role in this offense, and belongs in the WR3 range of the rankings moving forward.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Seven catches, TD in Week 2

    Samuel caught seven of nine targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-27 loss to the Lions. He added a 21-yard rush on his lone carry. Samuel finally got the Commanders on the board with a 15-yard touchdown in the third quarter and wound up with at least a share of the team lead in targets, catches and receiving yards. After failing to get into the end zone in an injury-riddled first season with Washington, Samuel has shown the skills that made him an attractive free agent for Washington in the 2021 offseason, opening the 2022 campaign with a two-game touchdown streak. He'll look to build on this hot start at home against the Eagles in Week 3.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Sneaky Sleeper in PPR (Lineup Decisions)

    I'd flex Samuel in PPR over Drake London, Adam Thielen, Rashod Bateman and Chase Edmonds. In non-PPR the list isn't as appealing -- guys like Tyler Lockett, Treylon Burks and Hunter Renfrow are behind Samuel there.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Week 2 Waiver Priority List

    Samuel struggled with injuries in 2021, which limited him to five games, but he looked solid in Week 1 against Jacksonville with eight catches for 55 yards on 11 targets, along with four carries for 17 yards and a lost fumble. We'll see how long he continues to lead the team in targets with Terry McLaurin (four targets), Dotson, Logan Thomas (six targets) and pass-catching running backs on the roster, but the coaching staff loves Samuel from their days in Carolina. He's worth adding for 5 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Week 2 Early Waiver Targets (Add/Drop)

    Samuel is healthy and had exactly the kind of workload I was hoping to see. He lined up all over the field and had a significant role in Ron Rivera's offense, catching eight of 11 passes thrown his way for 55 yards and a touchdown, while adding 17 yards on four carries to help the Commanders backfield with the absence of Brian Robinson. He was the most targeted player for Washington, mostly on short designed throws – a good sign that they wanted to get him heavily involved. Per TruMedia, he had seven snaps out of the backfield and was the team's primary slot receiver. Samuel is an effective playmaker with the ball in his hands and after actually making it through camp healthy (unlike last season), the Commanders made a point of featuring him. There are suddenly a lot of mouths to feed in this offense, but Samuel's unique role could make him very valuable for Fantasy moving forward.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Combines for 89 yards in win

    Samuel had eight receptions on 11 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown, adding four carries for 17 yards in Sunday's 28-22 win over Jacksonville. Samuel did his best Deebo Samuel impression Sunday, racking up fantasy points both on the ground and in the air. The versatile wideout is no stranger to getting rushing attempts (he had 60 carries for 330 yards and three touchdowns from 2019-2020), so his role as the Commanders' gadget/slot man could result in more fantasy-friendly lines this season. Samuel and the Commanders will take on the Lions next Sunday.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Out against Baltimore

    Samuel will not play in Saturday's preseason matchup against the Ravens, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. The Commanders are opting to rest the majority of their starters on both sides of the ball after playing mostly everyone in the last week's exhibition loss. Dyami Brown and Dax Milne should see a bevy of playing time, with the duo expected to fight for one of the team's final spots on the 53-man roster.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Two catches against Panthers

    Samuel caught both of his targets for 14 yards in Saturday's 23-21 preseason loss to the Panthers. Samuel was the target of Carson Wentz's first pass, which went for a gain of six yards. Two possessions later, he chipped in an eight-yard reception to give the Commanders a fresh set of downs. Most importantly, Samuel appears to be fully healthy after he managed only 79 total snaps with Washington in 2021.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Set to play Saturday

    Samuel will play in Saturday's preseason game against Carolina, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Samuel missed some practices at the start of training camp, reportedly due to a conditioning issue, but there hasn't been any report of a setback with the groin or hamstring injuries that ruined his first season in Washington. Coach Ron Rivera said he expects his starters to play around 15-20 snaps Saturday. The 26-year-old figures to be Washington's No. 2 or 3 wide receiver this year.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Practicing with team

    Samuel took part in team drills Wednesday and even caught passes on back-to-back snaps, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports. Samuel's participation in the early portion of training camp has been limited, with Commanders head coach Ron Rivera mentioning "football conditioning" issues Monday. The wide receiver was also limited during the offseason program, which was believed to be a matter of maintenance rather than an injury or conditioning concern. Rivera said Samuel didn't have any lingering problems this offseason after an injury-plagued 2021.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Conditioning an issue

    Coach Ron Rivera said Monday he has "some concern about football conditioning" in reference to Samuel, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Samuel has had his reps managed throughout all offseason workouts, and he's practicing off to the side during Monday's session. Rivera confirmed that none of Samuel's current limitations have to do with last season's injuries, which restricted him to just five appearances, but the 25-year-old's status still warrants monitoring. If Samuel isn't back to full form by Week 1, rookie first-round pick Jahan Dotson could see a clearer opportunity to entrench himself as the No. 2 wideout behind Terry McLaurin.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Reps managed at minicamp

    Samuel has come on and off the field during mandatory minicamp practices, but he isn't dealing with any injuries, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports. Coach Ron Rivera said the training staff feels Samuel is in a "good spot" after his participation in OTAs and Tuesday's minicamp session, but that the team is exercising caution about how many reps the wideout handles. The 25-year-old appears back to full health after missing all but five games of the 2021 campaign, but the Commanders are nonetheless being precautionary for now. With top wideout Terry McLaurin skipping minicamp due to contract negotiations and Samuel sometimes off the field, rookie first-round pick Jahan Dotson is receiving plenty of opportunities to handle first-team reps with quarterback Carson Wentz.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Looks 'really good' during workouts

    Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Samuel (hamstring) looks "really good" during workouts so far, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports. Samuel signed a three-year, $34.5 million contract ahead of the 2021 campaign, but he battled a lingering groin injury from the summer through the fall and later added a hamstring issue after a brief return to action Weeks 12-14. In total, he played 84 offensive snaps across five games, catching six of nine targets for 27 yards while rushing four times for 11 yards during his first campaign with Washington. After an injury-plagued start to his Commanders career, it appears the 25-year-old wideout could be healthy to start the 2022 campaign. It's important to note that Washington hasn't done any football activities yet during its voluntary offseason workouts, but Rivera said he's received positive news from trainers and added, "When you see him moving around, you feel pretty confident about him."

  • Football Team's Curtis Samuel: Ends season with another absence

    Samuel (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Signed to a three-year, $34.5 million contract in the offseason, Samuel battled a groin injury from summer through fall, later adding the hamstring issue after a brief return to action Weeks 12-14. All in all, he played 84 snaps on offense across five games, catching six of nine targets for 27 yards and taking four carries for 11 yards. It's miles from what was expected, but given the injuries, the contract and his age (25), Samuel should get another shot next year to be the No. 2 receiver Washington has lacked across from Terry McLaurin. It's anyone's guess who he'll catch passes from, and there's a reasonable chance Samuel needs surgery this offseason.

  • Football Team's Curtis Samuel: Remains sidelined at practice

    Samuel (hamstring) was held out of practice Thursday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. With back-to-back absences to begin Week 18 prep, Samuel is setting himself up for a fourth straight absence and 12th overall this season on Sunday at the Giants. Friday's injury report may reveal as much, and if so he'll end his first campaign in Washington with 10 touches for 38 yards from scrimmage in five brief appearances.

  • Football Team's Curtis Samuel: Not at practice

    Samuel (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Samuel's absence from the Football Team's first practice of the week isn't a promising early sign he'll be able to play in the season finale against the Giants, though he at least has two more chances to practice before Sunday. He last played Week 14 and has made only five appearances this season, logging 25 or fewer snaps each time.

  • Football Team's Curtis Samuel: Not playing Sunday

    Samuel (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Eagles. For a second week in a row, Samuel was listed as questionable after logging limited practices Wednesday through Friday. And for a second straight contest, he's unavailable to Washington's offense. Samuel thus will focus on getting healthy enough for a Week 18 road matchup with the Giants. In the meantime, Terry McLaurin, Cam Sims and Adam Humphries will continue to serve as the Football Team's top options at wide receiver.
