The moment could be now for San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Deebo Samuel. With tight end George Kittle (knee, ankle) and wideout Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) banged up in Week 10, Samuel drew a season-high 11 targets, converting them into eight grabs and 112 yards. With both Kittle and Sanders likely to miss Week 11s tilt against the Arizona Cardinals, Samuel is a plug-and-play WR3. Samuel possesses an intriguing speed and burst combination in the 80th percentile and ranks ninth in the NFL with an 86 percent catchable target rate. Although hes battled consistency this season, Samuel has a golden opportunity to embrace the lead dog role against a Cardinals pass defense ranked 26th in DVOA.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel cradled eight of 12 targets for 112 yards in Week 10s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Without tight end George Kittle (knee) and wideout Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) banged up, Samuel emerged as the premier aerial threat, hogging targets and repeatedly making clutch plays. His long went for 30 yards. Samuel has struggled to separate from the Niners crowded receiving corps this year, but he could be forced into a lead role if Sanders injury is serious. The talent is undeniable. Hell be a popular waiver wire add this week and is an upside WR4 against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11.
San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Deebo Samuel continues emerging as the clear No. 2 wideout in the passing attack. Since the arrival of veteran receiver Emmanuel Sanders, Samuels snap share has remained stable, with the biggest loser being Dante Pettis. Samuel saw seven looks in Week 9, missing out on a big day by allowing a wide-open touchdown pass clank off his hands. Despite the Niners low-volume aerial game, Samuel is an upside WR5 in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks. With Sanders and tight end George Kittle occupying Seattles primary attention, Samuel should continue drawing favorable matchups against a poor pass defense. In a crowded bye week, Samuels is a very playable option.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel cradled four of seven targets for 40 yards in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals. Samuel made several clutch plays including a handful of grabs down the stretch, but hell probably dwell on one major missed opportunity. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo found Samuel wide open in the end zone during the first half but the ball clanked off the rookies hands. Rookie mistake. The second-round pick continues to work into the offensive mix but has yet to break out, with just 22 catches for 227 yards and a touchdown. Hell stay on the WR5 board in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel draws a favorable matchup against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9 and is an upside WR5. The second-round rookie has endured a frustrating season, breaching five-plus targets just twice. Samuel scored his second touchdown last week, taking a 20-yard carry to the house. Despite just eight rush yards prior to Week 8, Samuel is a perceived big-play dual threat and could figure more into the running game with backs Matt Breida (ankle) and Raheem Mostert (knee) questionable. Against a weak Cardinals Defense, Samuel could convert his projected 4-6 touches into a big play, making him a boom-or-bust flex option for managers thin with bye weeks.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught his three targets for 19 yards and added two rushes for 29 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers. The Niners passing attack wasnt required much in a 51-13 blowout, but Samuel made his impact with a 20-yard touchdowns scamper in the third quarter. The rookie was touted as a dual threat coming into the season but had just eight rushing yards prior to Sunday. Samuel played a decent amount even with the arrival of Emmanuel Sanders but his usage is too sporadic to trust as anything more than an upside WR5. The Niners face a poor Arizona Cardinals Defense in Week 9.
San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) has been limited in practice this week and is expected to return to face the Panthers in Week 8 on Sunday. Samuel missed last week but should return after just a one-week absence to face Carolina. He shouldn't be trusted in the majority of leagues, though, especially since he's now fourth on the depth chart behind Emmanuel Sanders, Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis for targets in the passing game. Samuel is simply a dynasty stash right now.
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle (groin), rookie wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) and running back Raheem Mostert (knee) were all limited in practice on Wednesday. Kittle has been battling through injury and is being rested during the week. He will play in Week 8 against the Panthers and could be the overall TE1 in fantasy. Samuel didn't play last week but has a chance to get back on the field against Carolina. With Emmanuel Sanders now ahead of him on the depth chart with Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin, Samuel is purely a dynasty league stash. Mostert will only become fantasy relevant again if one of Tevin Coleman or Matt Breida miss time with an injury.
The San Francisco 49ers expect wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) to return in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers. Samuel missed Week 7 but appears ready to practice and play against a tough Panthers pass defense this Sunday. Despite showing exciting flashes this season, the rookie is averaging just 4.4 targets and 33.6 yards per game. His fantasy value will be further impaired with the acquisition of veteran wideout Emmanuel Sanders. With the Niners leaning heavily on their running game and tight end George Kittle dominating target share, Samuel is gradually fading from redraft relevance. Hell be a desperation WR5 if he suits on in Week 8.
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.
