Reunited, and it feels so good. Curtis Samuel may be going to a new team after signing a 3-year, $34.5 million contract in the offseason, but he'll be surrounded by familiar faces. Ron Rivera and Scott Turner coached Samuel for three seasons, and it's a testament to his abilities that the front office prioritized bringing him over from Carolina. Samuel will now line up opposite No. 1 Terry McLaurin â€" his college teammate at Ohio State. As a fantasy performer, Samuel has fallen a bit short of expectations. In four seasons, he's never finished as a top-25 fantasy receiver, although he came close last year (WR26). But his lack of prodigious statistics belie the value he'll bring to the Washington offense that finished 25th in points scored last season. Last year, Cam Sims ranked second among Washington receivers with 48 targets and 32 receptions. Samuel could hit those marks in October, provided he stays healthy. He missed most of the preseason, and durability is a concern. OC Scott Turner covets Samuel's versatility. He's a dynamic open-field runner making him particularly dangerous on crossing routes and coming out of the backfield on option routes. But he also has elite (4.3-second 40) speed and can take the top off a defense if they're lulled into playing him purely as an outlet target.
