Summary

Curtis Samuel took a leap forward in 2018, finishing 42nd in wide receiver rankings. He had only 47 touches in all of 2018, but he scored 7 touchdowns (5 receiving, 2 rushing), giving him a touchdown in every 6 touches. His elusive ability in the open field and top-line speed gives him the potential to score on any given play. Samuel had 67% of his targets and 64% of his receptions after Week 10, which coincidentally was the same time Cam Newton was struggling with his shoulder injury. Over a 16-game season, those stats would equate to 71 receptions on 121 targets. Now that Devin Funchess is out of the picture in Carolina's receiving corps, look for Samuel to take a step forward in 2019. Keep in mind, Samuel is also a threat as a rusher. He added 8 carries for 84 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2018. Carolina has three key young weapons in Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel. All have elite versatility with exceptional ability after the catch. D.J. Moore is the trendy pick to breakout in 2019, but Samuel is also capable of moving the needle as he continues to develop and grow in Norv Turner's offense. (May 3)

Panthers | Week 13 injury report for Carolina (Fri Nov 29, 02:07 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jordan Scarlett (knee, ankle) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Washington Redskins. OT Greg Little (ankle) also did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful. S Eric Reid (ankle) did not practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as questionable. OT Taylor Moton (knee) was limited in practice all week and is also listed as questionable. LB/DEs Mario Addison (rest) and Bruce Irvin (rest) did not practice Friday but have been removed from the injury report. DT Gerald McCoy (knee, quad), LB Shaq Thompson (ankle), RB Christian McCaffrey (rest), WR Curtis Samuel (knee), D.J. Moore (ankle, non-injury) and CB Ross Cockrell (quad) practiced in full Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Our View: Reid has been an IDP force this year, but continues to struggle to get off of the injury report. You might need a replacement if you have been counting on him this year.
