  • Curtis Samuel Scores Rushing Touchdown Against Eagles

    Headshot for Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel caught seven-of-eight targets for 51 yards along with one carry for one yard and a touchdown during Sunday's overtime loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The former Buckeye had a much more involved day than what was expected heading into Week 4. He ended the day as the Commanders' second-leading receiver while his numbers were boosted by a one-yard rushing score in the first quarter. With this kind of usage, Samuel could be an under-the-radar name to monitor heading into Washington's Week 5 matchup against the Chicago Bears.

  • Curtis Samuel A Desperation Play In Week 4

    Headshot for Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel could be in play for desperate teams in Week 4. Washington is taking on the Philadelphia Eagles on the road as 8.5-point underdogs. With the Commanders projected to be playing from behind, they may have to heavily rely on the passing game to stay within reach. With that in mind, Samuel could be considered as a sneaky fill-in. He doesn't hold much value as an option for typical rosters, but he offers intrigue as a volume-based play in extremely deep leagues. Start him as a last-resort option in Week 4.

  • Curtis Samuel Will Play Sunday

    Headshot for Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel (illness) has been upgraded to no injury designation for Week 3 and will be active on Sunday to face the visiting Buffalo Bills. Safety Kamren Curl (illness) will also play. Samuel wasn't on the injury report this week until he missed practice on Friday, and the team listed him as questionable. The 27-year-old seems to have improved and will once again serve as the No. 3 wideout behind Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson this weekend. At best, Samuel is a consideration as a flex play in deep fantasy leagues. Through the first two games in 2023, the veteran pass-catcher has only eight receptions (eight targets) for 73 yards and no touchdowns.

  • Curtis Samuel Not In Consideration Against Buffalo

    Headshot for Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel is drawing an unfavorable matchup in Week 3. The Commanders are taking on the Buffalo Bills, a team allowing the sixth-lowest passing yards per game in the NFL to start the season. Not only is the matchup poor, but the weather may come into play as well with wind and heavy rain on Sunday. With Samuel already having somewhat low involvement, the matchup and environment aren't doing him any favors either. Outside of true desperation, he shouldn't be in lineups in Week 3.

  • Curtis Samuel Questionable Due To Illness

    Headshot for Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel (illness) missed practice on Friday due to an illness and is now questionable to play in Week 3 on Sunday at home against the visiting Buffalo Bills. We would be surprised if Samuel doesn't end up suiting up this weekend, but those that were planning on starting him in a flex spot against the Bills in deeper leagues will need to pay close attention to his final status on Sunday morning. Samuel has a low fantasy ceiling and floor as the No. 3 receiver in Washington, and he has eight catches on eight targets for 73 yards in the first two weeks of the season. If the veteran is out or limited in Week 3, Dyami Brown could have a decent role, especially with tight end Logan Thomas (concussion) already being ruled out.

  • Curtis Samuel Will Play Against Broncos

    Headshot for Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel (hip) was limited in Friday's practice but was taken off the final injury report and will play on Sunday in Denver against the Broncos. Samuel was limited during the practice week, but his injury is minor and he will be out there in three-wide sets for Washington alongside Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson against a tough defense. The 27-year-old veteran had a team-high 54 receiving yards on five looks from quarterback Sam Howell in the Week 1 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but he'll likely take a step back in the second week of the regular season. Samuel is going to remain involved in the Commanders' passing attack as long as he stays healthy, but he'll have a low weekly ceiling and floor for fantasy managers as long as both McLaurin and Dotson are healthy.

  • Curtis Samuel Limited In Practice Again Thursday

    Headshot for Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel (hip) was listed as a limited practice participant for the second straight day this week on Thursday. Samuel could be listed as questionable for a Week 2 meeting with the Denver Broncos on the road this Sunday unless he can return to a full practice on Friday. Still, Samuel seems likely to be active this weekend. In the Week 1 season-opening win over the Arizona Cardinals, the veteran wideout caught all five of his targets for 54 yards. It was a decent first game from Samuel, but fantasy managers can't count on that kind of production on a weekly basis as he works behind both Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson against a pretty solid defense in Denver this weekend.

  • Curtis Samuel Listed As Limited In Practice

    Headshot for Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel (hip) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. It's unclear how severe the injury is or if the veteran was getting more of a rest day. Samuel led the Commanders in receiving yards in Week 1, catching all five of his targets for 54 yards. The 27-year-old is still third in the pecking order at the wide receiver position for Washington, behind Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson. He does not need to be rostered in standard-sized fantasy football leagues.

  • Curtis Samuel Leads Washington In Receiving

    Headshot for Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel caught all five of his targets for 54 yards along with one carry for six yards in Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals. On an ugly day for the entire Washington offense, Samuel was able to put together a decent performance where he led the team in receiving. After an offseason where the 27-year-old was largely forgotten amongst the hype for his teammates, he was one of the few solid performers in this sluggish offense. However, there are plenty of weapons in Washington, so he shouldn't be expected to lead the team on a weekly basis.

  • Offseason In Review: Washington Commanders

    Headshot for Jonathan Allen

    The Commanders’ roster moves did not receive too much attention this offseason. Dan Snyder‘s prolonged exit overshadowed his former team’s football matters. The Snyder-to-Josh Harris transfer represents the most important storyline involving this franchise this century. Without the historically unpopular owner, the once-respected organization can begin to pick up the pieces. As the team does […]
