San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Redskins. Samuel has been a little-used receiver in his rookie season in a run-first offense, so he belongs on the waiver wire in the majority of leagues. His absence is good news for both Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis, but the Niners probably won't have to rely on the passing game all that much against a poor Redskins team all around.
San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) and running back Raheem Mostert (knee) both missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Samuel and Mostert are on the wrong side of questionable to play in Week 7 against the Redskins. On a run-first team, Samuel just hasn't seen enough targets to be fantasy relevant in most redraft leagues in his rookie season. If he sits, it's good news for Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis. Mostert's fantasy value took a huge hit once Tevin Coleman came back from his injury two weeks ago. He belongs on the waiver wire unless you own one of Coleman or Matt Breida.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (quad) suffered a quad injury late in the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams. Samuel had just three grabs on five targets for 18 yards prior to exiting. The rookie played in 60 percent of snaps on Sunday, which has been his normal range, so the severity of the ailment is unknown. With wideout Dante Pettis starting to dominate snap share and the Niners leaning heavily on their running game, Samuel is fading as a fantasy factor. Hell be a bye week WR5 filler in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins.
The San Francisco 49ers receiving corps has been a crapshoot all season and that should continue in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams. Wideouts Marquise Goodwin, Dante Pettis and Deebo Samuel have been interchangeable pieces in an offense that has leaned heavily on its elite running game. While Goodwin has held the most stable snap share, hes averaging just three targets per game. Pettis playing time has increased over the past few games but he has a measly six catches for just 6.3 YPR. Finally, while rookie Samuel is the most enticing of all the options, his game-to-game opportunities have been volatile. With tight end George Kittle and the backfield gobbling up opportunities, there just arent enough looks to share, making each player a dart-throw WR5.
San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Dante Pettis were bystanders in Week 5, combining for two catches and 14 yards on six total targets. Samuel and Pettis were each targeted thrice and hauled in a pass apiece for three and 11 yards, respectively. The Niners cruised to a 31-3 victory and needed just 181 pass yards to secure the victory. Outside of tight end George Kittle, no other pass-catcher made much noise. The Niners should have closer contests in the future so these outcomes arent the norm, but staring at an undefeated record, theres no urgency to press the aerial attack. In a run-first offense, Samuel and Pettis are nothing more than volatile WR5s for the time being.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has emerged as the teams most fantasy-relevant receiver but a difficult start in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns. The second-round rookie has shown flashes this season with 11 grabs for 147 yards and a touchdown, but the Niners run-first offense caps opportunities for pass-catchers outside of tight end George Kittle. Maximizing his opportunities on just 59 percent snap share, Samuel should continue distancing himself from his peers but shouldnt be trusted against a difficult Browns pass defense. Hell be an upside WR5 on Monday night.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel collected three of four targets for 44 yards in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Samuel was contained all day but made a couple big plays in the fourth quarter to help seal the victory. The exciting second-round rookie has 14 grabs for 147 yards and a touchdown through his first three contests and has secured the trust of head coach Kyle Shanahan. Hell be an upside WR4 after the Niners emerge from their Week 4 bye.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is emerging as the go-to wideout in a crowded receiving corps. The second-round rookie led the team in targets, receptions and yards in Week 2, outpacing even All-Pro tight end George Kittle. Drafted for his playmaking abilities, Samuel has delivered and cant be ignored in fantasy for Week 3s tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers enter the contest third-worst in passing DVOA, allowing nine yards per pass attempt. Samuels primary risk is the Niners intent on rotating five receivers, but if the team devises plays to feature his skillset as expected, Samuel should be a reliable WR4 with upside.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel snagged five of seven targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Even with alleged less playing time this week, Samuel led the team in targets, receptions and yards, scoring on a 2-yard pass in the third quarter. The second-round rookie has emerged as the teams top wideout after two games and has seemingly solidified his floor. Even with tight end George Kittle and a skilled backfield dominating touches, Samuels playmaking abilities make him a steady WR4 in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is trending up after playing 88 percent of snaps in Week 1. The rookie played more than any wideout and is likely the most start-worthy Niners receiver in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan tempered expectations by confessing that Samuel may have played too much. The second-round pick is an explosive playmaker so while his usage could be dialed down, Samuel wasnt drafted to sit. With Dante Pettis (two snaps) looking to rebound and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spreading targets indiscriminately, Samuel is still a risky WR4 despite the upside.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught his three targets for 17 yards in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also coughed up a fumble battling for extra yards and converted a two-point conversion. Samuel played plenty on Sunday but it didnt translate into any significant stats, as quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo recorded just 166 pass yards. All five active receivers registered at least one catch but none surpassed 39 yards. With the Niners spreading the love through the air, Samuels usage could vary on a weekly basis. Hell be a risky WR4 in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is set for his NFL debut in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The second-round rookie showed electric flashes during preseason, making a handful of aerobic grabs and taking a couple carries for 59 yards. The South Carolina native will enjoy a favorable opening matchup in Tampa against one of the worst defenses last season. While his role is unclear, Samuel has the upside to eventually usurp Marquise Goodwin as the de facto starter and should play plenty on Sunday. Due to the volume uncertainty, Samuel is just a volatile WR4 in Week 1, but dont be surprised if he makes a big early impression.
San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Richie James Jr. both suited up for Thursdays preseason contest against the Los Angeles Chargers. Samuel caught both of his targets for 16 yards while James made a seven-yard grab. Samuel, the second-round rookie, is a lock for meaningful snaps this season after demonstrating electric upside throughout training camp. Hes an attractive late-round sleeper in redrafts and has a bright outlook in dynasty. James will serve as the primary slot man until Trent Taylor (foot) returns. Hes only a fantasy option in the deepest PPR leagues.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught two of three targets for 27 yards Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs. After two solid preseason games, Samuel had a relatively quiet evening. The second-round rookie has demonstrated electric upside and could be in-line for a meaningful role immediately in the Niners offense. With a stellar college resume and advanced skillset, Samuel deserves some sleeper love as RotoBallers WR73.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was not targeted but ripped a 45-yard run in Mondays preseason game against the Denver Broncos. After collecting 75 yards last Saturday, the rookie made another splash, nearly scoring on a third quarter reverse. Samuel was taken in the second round this past offseason and continues to port his impressive college resume and advanced metrics to the NFL. Currently on his way to securing a starting job, Samuel is gaining sleeper appeal as RotoBallers WR73 heading into drafts.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel had two catches for 61 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Dallas Cowboys. He also added a 14-yard carry. Samuel appears to be the favorite to start opposite Dante Pettis on the outside this year, and Saturday's game just moved that closer to being a reality. Samuel is likely to have some value in deeper leagues, though a lot will depend on how quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo looks when he returns to the floor.
In an intense competition for reps, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel knows theres no time for complacency. Samuel, one of eight wideouts vying for six roster spots, knows that everybodys lifes on the line. The second-round pick out of South Carolina is touted as a playmaking wizard but has yet to emerge from the crowd. He did catch a 41-yard would-be touchdown on Sunday from backup quarterback Nick Mullens. Currently drafted as a WR6, consistent snaps may be an issue for Samuel unless he proves it in training camp.
The San Francisco Giants signed defensive end Nick Bosa and wide receiver Deebo Samuel on Thursday. With four-year deals, the Niners first two picks of 2019 will have a full training camp to prep for the season. Bosa, the second overall pick out of Ohio State was a beast with 17.5 sacks and 29 tackles for losses in his collegiate career. He should bolster a shaky 49ers defense and is an intriguing IDP candidate. Samuel, 23, was first-team SEC after recording 882 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns at South Carolina. Hes expected to immediately contribute and will play opposite ascending second-year player Dante Pettis. Currently projected as a WR6, Samuels draft stock could certainly rise with positive reports from camp.
Approaching training camp, the San Francisco 49ers first two picks of 2019 remain unsigned. Defensive end Nick Bosa, the second overall pick, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel represent two of the eight total 2019 NFL draftees that have not reached a deal. Bosa, who many experts expect to make an immediate impact, could lift the Niners defense from its 28th-ranked fantasy DST. More worrisome is Samuel, who will miss valuable reps with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo if hes unable to report to camp on time. With a crowded receiving corps, the rookie could conceivable sink on the depth chart, severely negating any redraft value he currently possesses.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who was selected with the No. 36 overall pick of the draft in the second round, could start right away and be paired with Dante Pettis in 2019. Samuel had 62 catches for 882 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2018 and has good strength, speed and run-after-the-catch prowess. Head coach Kyle Shanahan wants to dial back Marquise Goodwin's role to better utilize his unique speed. Shanahan has been very impressed with Samuel, and it appears they plan to throw him right into the fire. It doesn't mean that Samuel will be a stud right off the bat, but he'll have an opportunity to make fantasy noise immediately.
