|Samuel only played in eight games in 2017 and never cracked 5 fantasy points in a week, but he's a former 2nd round draft selection so the team isn't likely to give up on him yet. Samuel is a versatile player who could see time lined up on the outside, in the slot, or potentially coming out of the backfield. After breaking a bone in his ankle last season, Samuel is progressing towards being 100 percent by training camp. However, he's at best fifth in line for targets making him a waiver player to keep an eye on in 2018. If he can earn consistent playing time, his athletic profile aligns well with a Tavon Austin-type player who could find creative ways to touch the ball.

Returning from back injury

|Panthers WR Devin Funchess, listed as questionable with a back injury, is expected to play today but on a limited basis, source said. The team will work him back slowly. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel should operate as Carolina's top wide receivers in a tasty matchup against the Buccaneers however the return of Funchess, even in a limited capacity lowers the ceiling on both starting wideouts. Moore remains a solid WR2 play in Week 13.
