Washington Commanders wide receivers Jahan Dotson (ankle) and Curtis Samuel (quadriceps) were both listed as limited practice participants on the team's estimated practice report for Tuesday. The team didn't officially practice. Dotson is listed as limited for the second straight practice, while Samuel was upgraded after being a DNP on Monday. Both wideouts are worth monitoring before Thursday's game against the Chicago Bears, but as long as neither have a setback on Wednesday, they figure to have a good shot at playing. Neither Dotson nor Samuel have done much in the first four games, but they both found the end zone in the Week 4 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and have a great matchup in Week 5 against Chicago. Dotson is the more attractive fantasy play as the No. 2 behind Terry McLaurin.

Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel (quadriceps) was listed as a non-participant on the team's estimated injury report on Monday after their walkthrough session. Samuel apparently was injured in the Week 4 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, when he caught seven passes for 51 yards and also had a one-yard touchdown run. The 27-year-old's status for Thursday night's tilt against the Chicago Bears is now in question. It's a great matchup this week if Samuel is able to play, but even then, he has a low weekly ceiling and floor while operating behind Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson (ankle). In four games this year, Samuel has 17 receptions for 178 yards and the rushing TD. If Samuel doesn't play Thursday, Dyami Brown and Jamison Crowder would battle for more targets.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. caught nine of his 11 targets for 56 yards in a 21-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4. Marshall saw an uptick in playing time with rookie Jonathan Mingo (concussion) inactive and he made the most of those chances by leading the Panthers in catches and targets in the loss. The third-year receiver has been busy over the past two weeks as he has drawn 18 targets, turning those into 14 receptions for 91 scoreless yards. That being said, Marshall is likely to return to a backup role once Mingo is ready to return, which could be as soon as Week 5 against the Detroit Lions.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young completed 25 of his 32 passes for 204 yards and added 10 yards on two carries with a lost fumble in a 21-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4. Young did not throw any touchdowns or interceptions in the contest. The rookie signal-caller missed his team's game in Week 3 with an ankle injury but he appeared to emerge from Week 4 without any issues. Young has now thrown just two touchdowns to go along with two interceptions in three contests. He will face off against the Detroit Lions on the road in Week 5.

Chicago Bears wide receiver D.J. Moore had seemingly no issues versus the Denver Broncos defense in Week 4. The stud wideout hauled in eight of his nine targets for 131 yards and a touchdown in the loss. Moore saw a 27.3 percent target share in this game as the Bears continue to lean on him in the passing game. He's the Bears No. 1 option and he's going to remain that going forward. Moore should be a strong play in fantasy leagues heading into the Week 5 matchup against the Washington Commanders.
