    The 49ers are set to have much of their salary cap commitments tied into a small group of high-priced veterans in 2024 and beyond. Brandon Aiyuk is on track to become one of them, provided he plays out his fifth-year option next year and/or agrees to an extension. Aiyuk has been the subject of considerable […]

  • Deebo Samuel Inefficient, Hobbled In Super Bowl Loss

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) had a frustrating Sunday night in the team's 25-22 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII. The former second-rounder fell to the turf, grabbing his leg in the third quarter but returned shortly after. While 49er fans and fantasy managers could breathe a sigh of relief when he returned, Samuel wasn't able to do much damage after -- or for that matter, before -- the injury. He finished the game with three catches on a game-high 11 targets for just 33 yards. San Francisco also attempted to get Samuel involved in the running game, giving him three carries which turned into just eight yards. He'll most likely be taken near the WR1/WR2 border when fantasy drafts happen in the fall.

  • Deebo Samuel Returns To Super Bowl

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) has returned to Sunday's Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs. He suffered the injury on a non-contact play in which he was not the intended target. The 49ers initially listed him as questionable, but he checked back in for the first play of the next drive. At the time of his departure, the talented playmaker had seven targets, two catches, two rushes, and 23 scrimmage yards. His return puts the 49ers' offense back at full strength as they look to preserve their one-score lead over the Chiefs.

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) exited during the third quarter of Sunday's Super Bowl and is officially questionable to return. He suffered the injury on a non-contact play in which he was not the intended target. At the time of his departure, the talented playmaker had seven targets, two catches, two rushes, and 23 scrimmage yards. Until Samuel can return, Chris Conley and Jauan Jennings should earn more snaps alongside Brandon Aiyuk.

  • Deebo Samuel Top Wide Receiver Option In Super Bowl LVIII

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel enters Sunday's Super Bowl matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs as the top option at his position for fantasy players. While Chiefs rookie wideout Rashee Rice has been the most productive remaining wideout in these playoffs, fantasy managers would do well to combat recency bias by noting that Samuel is the more explosive player in the better offense. Samuel finished as the ninth-most valuable wide receiver in fantasy this year by half-PPR points per game while Rice didn't get it going until late for a 30th overall finish. Rice only had three 15-plus point performances in the regular season to Samuel's seven. It's also worth noting that Samuel will be playing in his second Super Bowl, which may be a factor in a game of this magnitude as evidenced by the fact that only three of the top-50 Super Bowl wide receiver performances by yardage have been produced by rookies. While it may be fair to say that Rice has a higher floor in this game since he's Kansas City's only reliable target at wide receiver, DFS players shooting for upside should consider Samuel.

  • Deebo Samuel Leads Team In Receiving En Route To Title

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel led the team in receiving but didn't score a touchdown during a 34-31 victory over the Detroit Lions for the NFC Championship on Sunday at Levi's Stadium. Samuel caught eight of nine targets for 89 yards through the air and carried the ball three times for seven yards rushing. Unlike teammate Brandon Aiyuk with his spectacular catch and subsequent touchdown, Samuel's signature moment in the comeback win is hard to pinpoint. But Samuel kept the chains moving, leading all 49ers in non-touchdown first downs with five. He also seemed to show no ill effects from a shoulder injury that forced him out of action in the Divisional Round against Green Bay and briefly threatened his availability for this one. Head coach Kyle Shanahan will now have two weeks to draw up some crafty plans for the versatile playmaker before the 49ers head to Las Vegas and Super Bowl LVIII.

  • Deebo Samuel Won't Have Limitations In NFC Title Game

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) will not have any limitations on Sunday as he takes on the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship game. Samuel suffered a left-shoulder injury early in the win over the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round last Saturday, but X-rays revealed no structural damage, and he was completely removed from Friday's final injury report. It's great news for a 49ers offense that didn't look very good in the regular season when Samuel sat out a few games due to a similar shoulder injury. It's also bad news for a Lions defense that hasn't been able to slow down opposing receivers. The 28-year-old is dealing with a really bad deep bruise but should be his normal self on Sunday and will be very attractive at a lowered DFS price because of the injury he suffered last weekend.

  • Deebo Samuel Doesn't Carry Injury Designation Into NFC Championship

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that star wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) isn't on the team's final injury report on Friday and will play on Sunday versus the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship game. "Full-go today," Shanahan said about Samuel's practice status on Friday. Samuel didn't practice on Wednesday and was upgraded to limited in Thursday's session. The 28-year-old was forced out of the Divisional Round win early against the Green Bay Packers and never returned, but it won't stop him from playing in this weekend's big game. Samuel was looking primed for a big performance last Saturday before his injury. There's some risk because of his shoulder injury, but if he's not limited at all on Sunday, he could go off against a Lions defense that has been very generous to opposing wideouts this season.

  • Deebo Samuel A Limited Participant On Thursday

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) is practicing in a limited fashion on Thursday after missing Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury. The 27-year-old picked up the ailment in the first quarter of the NFC Divisional-Round win over the Green Bay Packers after catching two passes for 24 yards. It remains to be seen if he'll be able to suit up on Sunday against the Detroit Lions with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, but his return to practice is a great first step in doing so. If he plays, he'll face a Detroit defense that surrendered the third-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers during the regular season. If he can't go, Brandon Aiyuk should be in for a monster game, while Jauan Jennings will likely be elevated to the No. 2 WR role.

  • Deebo Samuel Gets Some Sprints In

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    While San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) was officially listed as a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, he did do some full-field sprints with a football tucked under his arm. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Samuel was "feeling better" on Wednesday after leaving the Divisional Round win over the Green Bay Packers last weekend with a left-shoulder injury and never returning. The good news is Samuel isn't dealing with a fracture, but it might be about pain tolerance for him as he looks to suit up in the NFC Championship this Sunday against the Detroit Lions. If the 28-year-old can rejoin the team for practice the next two days, he'll have a shot at playing this weekend. If Samuel is out or a decoy on Sunday, it will mean more work for the likes of Jauan Jennings, Chris Conley and Ray-Ray McCloud III.

  • Deebo Samuel Not Participating In Wednesday's Walkthrough

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) is not taking part in the team's Wednesday walkthrough practice. The 28-year-old exited the NFC Divisional Round win over the Green Bay Packers with a shoulder injury after logging 24 yards on two receptions. His injury is not considered significant, but it could still hold him out of the NFC Championship Game against the Detroit Lions. According to ESPN reporter Nick Wagoner, Thursday's practice will give DFS gamers a better idea of if Samuel has a shot to suit up on Sunday. The Lions were a bottom-five team against fantasy wideouts during the regular season, so Samuel would have plenty of upside if he's healthy enough to play. If Samuel is out, Brandon Aiyuk should be in for a fantastic day. Detroit gave up at least 147 receiving yards to CeeDee Lamb, Justin Jefferson, Puka Nacua, and Mike Evans over the last four weeks.

  • No Fracture For Deebo Samuel, Still Iffy For NFC Title Game

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) doesn't have a fractured shoulder, "which is a good sign," but he's dealing with a lot of pain, which makes his status fuzzy for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Detroit Lions. Shanahan thinks he'll have a better idea of Samuel's availability for this weekend's big game on Wednesday, when the team holds its first practice. The 49ers are considering the 28-year-old 50-50 for the game this Sunday, so there's a good chance he'll be more of a game-time decision. It will make things difficult for DFS gamers playing the two-game slate this weekend, as the Niners-Lions kick off in the evening after the Chiefs and Ravens do. And if Samuel is active, there's a chance he could be more of a decoy for the Lions defense.

  • Deebo Samuel "50-50" To Play In NFC Title Game

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    The San Francisco 49ers consider it "50-50" as to whether wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) will be able to play in Sunday night's NFC Championship game against the Detroit Lions due to the left-shoulder injury he suffered in the Divisional Round win over the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night, according to a source. The 28-year-old will have more tests to determine the severity of his injury, but it's worth nothing he missed two games during the regular season with a similar injury. We should have a better idea of Samuel's status for the big game later this week when the Niners begin practicing, but for now, he's highly questionable to play. If Samuel cannot suit up, it will mean more targets for Brandon Aiyuk and Jauan Jennings, tight end George Kittle and running back Christian McCaffrey in a great matchup.

  • Deebo Samuel To Have More Tests Sunday

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder), who was ruled out after injuring his left shoulder in the Divisional Round victory over the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night, will have more tests on Sunday to determine his status for next week in the NFC Championship. Samuel missed two games this season with an injury to the same shoulder. The 28-year-old hurt his shoulder on the team's second drive of the game and finished with just two catches for 24 yards. He had previously been evaluated for a head injury on the first drive of the game. If Samuel's shoulder injury is serious enough to keep him out of the NFC title game, tight end George Kittle and receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Jauan Jennings will need to pick up more of the slack through the air for the Niners. Running back Christian McCaffrey should also see some more checkdown passes.

  • Deebo Samuel Won't Return Against The Packers

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) won't return to Saturday's postseason meeting with the Green Bay Packers. The wideout suffered a variety of ailments throughout the evening. First, he exited briefly for a concussion evaluation. However, a shoulder injury suffered not long after was enough to seal his fate for the rest of the night, and he'll finish with two catches for 24 yards. Of course, Samuel's health will be a significant topic heading into the NFC Championship, assuming the Niners can advance. But until he's back on the field, Christian McCaffrey, George Kittle, and Brandon Aiyuk will remain the top offensive contributors. At the same time, Jauan Jennings, who has three catches for 33 yards, could continue to see an expanded role.

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) is questionable to return to the postseason showdown with the Packers. Samuel had two catches for 24 yards in the first quarter. However, he's since received an evaluation for a concussion, and he's now dealing with a shoulder issue. It's unknown how severe Samuel's current ailment is. But the 49ers will play it safe, considering the team is eyeing a Super Bowl berth. That said, without Samuel on the field, George Kittle, who scored a touchdown in the second quarter, and Brandon Aiyuk should remain Brock Purdy's primary receiving options, with Christian McCaffrey also catching passes out of the backfield.

However, he lost a shoe, although he took a hard hit moments later and ended up in the blue medical tent. Samuel appeared to be getting hot before exiting, catching both targets for 24 yards. San Francisco hasn't had an easy time with the Packers thus far, so the team needs Samuel back on the field. But if he doesn't return, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle should see more attention from Brock Purdy.

  • Deebo Samuel A Top Option In Divisional Round

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is primed for a big game in the team's Divisional Round home matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Over his last five full regular season games, the dual-threat player averaged 21.5 half-PPR points, which placed him third in the NFL among wide receivers in that time. Green Bay's pass defense has been leaky recently, allowing the seventh-most points to fantasy wide receivers over the last five weeks of the regular season. In the Wild Card Round last week, the Packers allowed CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup to combine for 213 yards receiving. The weather in Santa Clara during the game is expected to be moderately windy and rainy, but San Francisco should find a way to get Samuel heavily involved regardless. He'll be a top-2 option for fantasy players this week.
