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)
