  • Curtis Samuel Catches Both Targets in Preseason Opener

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel saw two targets in Washington's loss to the Carolina Panthers. The former Buckeye was the recipient of Carson Wentz's first pass of the game, racking up six yards before converting on third down off an eight-yard reception. His 14 total yards weren't much, but it was encouraging to see the 26-year-old back on the field after an injury-riddled 2021. With Samuel also getting work with the first team, he could be a nice speculative pick late in drafts heading into the season.

  • Curtis Samuel, Dyami Brown Struggling At Camp

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel has been practicing with the team at training camp, and his presence outside, in the slot or out of the backfield can create mismatches for the opposing defense. However, the fact that he's being nursed through camp without tackling puts doubt into how he'll get through a full 17-game season. Dyami Brown (leg) missed most of the second week of camp with an apparent leg injury and hasn't shined when he's been on the field. Brown has size and should have a roster spot, but his role appears limited for now, barring an extended absence from Samuel. With rookie Jahan Dotson standing out all offseason and summer, it's hard to envision Samuel being a consistent fantasy producer to begin the 2022 season.

  • Curtis Samuel Practicing On The Sidelines

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel struggled with injuries last season, limiting him to only five games played. Samuel, who has familiarity with head coach Ron Rivera from their time together in Carolina, was seen working on the sideline in practice on Monday. When asked about it, Rivera stated he "had some chances to look at him" and has "some concern about football conditioning." This will allow rookie receiver Jahan Dotson, who the Commanders drafted 16th overall, even more opportunity to gain chemistry with quarterback Carson Wentz. This could also open the door for Dotson to lock down the No. 2 receiver role behind Terry McLaurin. This makes Samuel a difficult player to trust in fantasy drafts, and he's someone to stay away from until we are assured he's healthy.

  • Curtis Samuel Limited At Minicamp

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel was limited at mandatory minicamp this week because head coach Ron Rivera and the training staff felt like he was in a "good spot" after what he did at organized team activities and last Tuesday's minicamp practice. The Commanders don't want to push Samuel anymore, but Rivera said it wasn't related to Samuel's groin issue. The 25-year-old played in only five games and caught six passes for 27 yards in his first year in D.C. in 2021, but he's fully healthy now and could bounce back in Washington's offense alongside Terry McLaurin and rookie Jahan Dotson, who is getting plenty of work in with new quarterback Carson Wentz with McLaurin holding out.

  • Antonio Gibson, Curtis Samuel Sitting Out Wednesday

    Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson (hamstring) has a slightly pulled hamstring and will sit out of practice on Wednesday, while wide receiver Curtis Samuel will also take a seat after coming in a little sore on Wednesday, according to head coach Ron Rivera. The Commanders are being smart with both players, and Rivera said he's looking forward to seeing Samuel in minicamp next week. Rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. will see some more repetitions with Gibson sidelined. Gibson should be the team's primary back in 2022, but sharing work with J.D. McKissic and Robinson will make him more of a high-end RB2 target in fantasy. Samuel's years was washed away by injuries last year, but he could be a nice low-cost bounce-back target near the end of drafts.

  • Curtis Samuel Can Play Everywhere In Offense

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel's versatility has been on full display during voluntary organized team activities this year. "Curtis can play everywhere," offensive coordinator Scott Turner said. "We did some of that stuff last year in the limited time he was on the field. I'm just happy for Curtis that he's healthy and he's back to his normal self running around." Samuel was limited to five games in his first year in D.C. due to injuries in 2021, catching just six passes for 27 yards. The 25-year-old is eager to put his frustrating season behind him, and he had 1,200 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in three seasons under head coach Ron Rivera in Carolina. Samuel could reach that potential again now that he's healthy and able to contribute in many different ways on the field.

  • Curtis Samuel Feeling Good

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel (hamstring) called it "refreshing" to be back at offseason workouts after an injury-plagued 2021 season. Samuel said, "I feel good. I feel fast." Head coach Ron Rivera said that the 25-year-old pass-catcher looked good during workouts last month as well. He was a complete bust in his first year in D.C. in 2021 after signing a three-year, $34.5 million deal, as he played in just five games due to hamstring and groin injuries and finished with six catches for 27 scoreless yards. Samuel could be a bounce-back candidate with better health in 2022, but the presence of rookie Jahan Dotson could complicate things, as well as subpar quarterback Carson Wentz.
