Injuries are playing havoc with Seminole receivers.
While Sam said he is hopeful of returning to practice on Thursday and playing against the Terrapins, the Seminoles are in need of healthy bodies and productive hands against Maryland.
"The coaches have been telling me to get ready to play," Fagg said.
"We don't know what Chauncey's percentages are in terms of playing. If he's feels better, he wants to play, so I will be focused on the sideline in case anything goes wrong and I have to go in."
Fagg says he feels comfortable in FSU's offensive scheme after early struggles.
Fagg attended Hargrave Military Academy last fall but did not play football after suffering a broken leg in the final week of practice.
Fagg, the former Tallahassee Democrat Offensive Big Bend Player of the Year from Quincy, had 41 catches for 808 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior.
Fagg is a big, physical receiver at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds.
"I feel comfortable in this offense," Fagg said. "I have Chauncey and the other older guys helping me out. I am following their lead.
"That's the thing here. We can show people we can go deep into the depth chart and show them we just don't have three receivers. That we have a whole lineup of receivers who are ready to go."
Fagg also plans to watch extra video on the Terrapins, who rely on press coverage from their cornerbacks.
Maryland ranks fifth in the Atlantic Coast Conference in pass defense, allowing 173.7 yards per game. The Terps also have held opposing quarterbacks under 15 completions in five of seven games.
"I know they like to press a lot and that's one thing we have to get ready for," Fagg said. "I love that (press coverage). I am looking forward to the opportunity to contribute."
