2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL INJURY WATCH: CURTIS SAMUEL FELLED BY ANOTHER HAMSTRING INJURY

                                                              

When it comes to the wide receiver position in fantasy football, hamstring injuries are the bane of the existence both of the players and their owners.  Given all of the cutting and stopping on a dime movement during routes, it is easy to see why hamstring injuries are the biggest problem for receivers on a yearly basis.  Throw in the fact they tend to linger or re-occur and the frustration meter goes up ever more.  Such a scenario is now enveloping Carolina Panthers rookie wideout Curtis Samuel who went down in practice early on Friday with a hamstring injury that was not considered minor.  The latest injury joins the hamstring injury that also kept Samuel out of minicamps and now puts the spotlight on him as a guy who may have a chronic issue there.  While the speedster was looked at as a WR 3 on the Panthers, he still carries some PPR intrigue given the fact he can help both running and catching the football as he did a during his college tenure.  For now, Samuel needs to be knocked down to the last few rounds of your draft or out of it entirely.
