Curtis Samuel Quiet In Blowout Loss To Dallas

Sunday, January 7, 8:44 PM

Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel caught two of four targets for 15 yards along with one carry for 15 yards during Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. For the third straight week, Samuel had himself a quiet performance as Washington's offense struggled to get anything going for most of Week 18. With the Commanders heading into the offseason, the seventh-year receiver is set to be an unrestricted free agent. While wide receivers are becoming more valuable than ever, it wouldn't be surprising to see Samuel donning a different uniform in 2024.

Zay Jones Has Six Catches In Return

Sunday, January 7, 8:03 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones (hamstring, knee) returned from a two-game absence for the Week 18 meeting with the Titans. He finished with six catches (nine targets) for 47 yards. However, it was enough, as the Jags couldn't beat the Titans to earn a postseason berth. Nevertheless, Jones struggled with various injuries and underwhelming play throughout the 2023-24 campaign. Although Trevor Lawrence didn't help make things easy for Jones, fantasy managers were still disappointed with how things ended. At any rate, he's not a lock to be back in Jacksonville next season. However, Lawrence must turn things around if Jones hopes to be a week-to-week fantasy option in 2024-25.
