  • Deebo Samuel Questionable To Face The Saints

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. It's an injury that caused Samuel to sit out in Week 8, so it bears watching heading into Sunday's contest against New Orleans. The 26-year-old was limited in practice this week, so he should be on the right side of questionable, but fantasy managers will have to check back on Samuel before Sunday's inactives are released. Jauan Jennings, Ray-Ray McCloud II and rookie Danny Gray would be asked to step up behind Brandon Aiyuk and tight end George Kittle if Samuel doesn't get the green light. Samuel caught seven of nine targets for 57 yards and carried the ball three times for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He'll be a strong WR2 for fantasy managers if he plays.

  • Deebo Samuel Limited During Thursday's Practice

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) was limited during Thursday's practice. The 26-year-old was also limited on Wednesday, so fantasy managers should monitor his status during Friday's practice. Fantasy managers should expect Samuel to suit up for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. He should be considered low-end WR1 for this upcoming matchup. Fantasy managers should check back on Friday to see if his status changes.

  • Deebo Samuel A High-Upside Start In Week 12

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel had a boom game last week against the Arizona Cardinals, and now he will look to build on it in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are allowing the seventh-most points to fantasy WRs, but Samuel is more of a wide back, so his production doesn't follow the average. He is more likely to make or break based on whether or not he can bust out a big play. The Saints have only allowed the 24-most big plays this season. Samuel could have a huge game, or he could underwhelm. His floor is low-end flex, but his ceiling is WR1. You must start him if you want to make the upside play.

  • Deebo Samuel Gains 94 Yards And Scores Touchdown

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught seven passes for 57 yards and ran for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Niners' 38-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Samuel reversed direction across the field after a fake handoff to Elijah Mitchell for a 39-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He only ran the ball three times, and he lost net yardage on his other two runs, but his dynamic skill set and usage in schemed plays gives him the opportunity to bust a big play any time he touches the ball. He'll have another chance next week against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Deebo Samuel Could Get Back On Track Week 11

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has a road matchup against the division rival Arizona Cardinals in Week 11. Samuel returned from missing Week 8 with a hamstring injury and resting during San Fran's Week 9 bye to gain 51 scrimmage yards in Week 10. He had four carries last week, the most he has had since Week 3, and gained 27 rushing yards. Samuel just hasn't had the same workload in the rushing game as he did last season, and he has been less explosive in the passing game, too. He has declined as the season has gone on. After three top 30 WR finishes in the first four weeks, he has only cracked the top 30 once since Week 4. His Week 11 matchup against Arizona could be a good chance to get back on track. The Cardinals are allowing the tenth-most receiving yards per game to opponents. Samuel is a volatile flex option with WR2-3 potential.

  • Deebo Samuel Quiet In Win

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel didn't make much of an impact during Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. The 26-year-old hauled in two receptions on six targets for 24 yards, while adding four carries for 27 yards on the ground. Fantasy managers shouldn't get too frustrated with this performance as he should bounce back from this. The expectation is that Samuel should be a high-end WR3 going forward.

  • Deebo Samuel, Jauan Jennings Will Be Active

    San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Deebo Samuel (hamstring) and Jauan Jennings (hamstring) and fullback Kyle Juszczyk (finger) were all removed from the final Week 10 injury report and will play on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers. The 49ers were able to get healthy during their Week 9 bye. Samuel was unable to play in Week 8, but he'll return for a nice matchup against the porous Chargers defense. The 26-year-old remains a must-start WR2 in fantasy, but running back Christian McCaffrey's presence and the return of RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) this weekend could hurt Samuel's chances for a high target share. In his seven games in 2022, Samuel has 56 touches for 515 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns.
