7Keenan Allen, LAC830.63.0516.0

Remarkably consistent for five straight seasons, can he do it for a sixth season at the age of 30? He should with one of the best young quarterbacks in the league. Could come at a slight discount in drafts as fantasy players continue to search for the "league winner" types with double-digit TD potential. Allen's scored 8 TD twice in his career, and otherwise 6 or less.

8A.J. Brown, PHI725.33.0613.8
9Deebo Samuel, SF926.82.0715.8

Deebo had a really nice season last year, but gets the warning / risk symbol for now. He wants a new contract, and I don't think the 49ers are going to give it to him. This could get ugly. Putting the contract aside, Deebo grumbled about his rushing role, and he is in danger of getting beat up the more rushing he does. Seems like a high risk pick unlikely to match what he did last year. Pass.

10DJ Moore, CAR1325.63.1213.7
11Tyreek Hill, MIA1128.72.1117.0

I still believe in the talent of Tyreek Hill, and while Tua is no doubt a downgrade from Patrick Mahomes, I'm not down on Tua. Hill seems a bit over the top in his newfound love for Tua (receivers, am I right?), but the new head coach seems like a smart guy. Get Hill in space and let him do his thing.

  • Deebo Samuel Makes Three Catches For 43 Yards

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel hauled in three of seven targets for 43 yards in the Niners' 13-0 home win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. The 26-year-old also took two carries for no net gain. Samuel's production in the passing game has been on the declining since Brandon Aiyuk began to breakout. His rushing volume has also declined since Week 3. Samuel is still a viable starter but no longer a WR1. He will look to get back on track in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Deebo Samuel Dealing With "Different" Hamstring Issue

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) remains questionable ahead of Sunday's meeting with the Saints. The wideout didn't play in the Week 8 win over the Rams because of a hamstring injury, leading most to assume he's still dealing with the lingering effects. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan provided an update, reporting that Samuel's current hamstring issue is "something different," although he didn't elaborate further. The 26-year-old finished the 2021-22 campaign with 14 total touchdowns. Yet, he only has four in nine games this season. That said, fantasy managers should continue to monitor Samuel's status while remaining optimistic his health doesn't take a turn for the worse. But if he isn't available in Week 12, Christian McCaffrey, Brandon Aiyuk, and George Kittle should remain featured on the offensive end. At the same time, Jauan Jennings, the team's fourth most productive receiving option, could be more involved.

  • 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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Deebo Samuel (hamstring) and Jauan Jennings (hamstring) and fullback Kyle Juszczyk (finger) all practiced in full on Wednesday. Samuel missed Week 8 but had the bye to heal up in Week 9, so he appears to be on track to play in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football. We probably won't see much more of the 26-year-old as a runner out of the backfield with Christian McCaffrey now in town, but Samuel should still be an enticing WR2 with perhaps more touchdown potential in an improved offense. The Sunday night game could make Samuel a bitch sketchy if he's listed as questionable this week, but the full practice on Wednesday is a good sign for his availability.

  • Deebo Samuel A WR2 In Week 10

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) returned to practice on Monday after missing his team's last game back in Week 8. Samuel appears to be over the hamstring issue that kept him out of action two weeks ago, aided by a bye in Week 9. He will look to get back in on the action against the Los Angeles Chargers at home in Week 10. The Chargers are allowing the 20th-most fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position in 2022, setting up a neutral matchup for Samuel. The veteran receiver checks in as a midrange WR2 in fantasy and is a must-start, provided that he does suit up for Week 10.

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) was seen on the practice field on Monday. Samuel was held out of the Week 8 game due to his hamstring, but he had the Week 8 bye to rest up. We'll have a better idea of his status heading into Week 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers once the official practice report surfaces on Wednesday, but it's a good sign that he's doing something early this week. The 26-year-old was the best fantasy wideout not named Cooper Kupp in 2021, but he has disappointed so far in 2022 with 32 catches (54 targets) for 387 yards and two touchdowns in seven games. The addition of do-it-all running back Christian McCaffrey probably isn't great news for Samuel's fantasy outlook the rest of the way, either.

Wide receiver Jauan Jennings (hamstring) is also questionable, so San Fran's receiving corps could be very thin against a tough opponent on Sunday. Samuel didn't practice all week and will have next week's bye to heal up before attempting to return in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Brandon Aiyuk, Ray-Ray McCloud III and rookie Danny Gray could be the team's top three receivers if Jennings is also inactive. Tight end George Kittle and running back Christian McCaffrey will probably soak up more targets as well.

It's bad news for both receivers, unless they are able to at least get in a limited form of practice on Friday. If neither Samuel nor Jennings are cleared to face the division-rival Los Angeles Rams in Week 8, Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, Ray-Ray McCloud III and rookie Danny Gray would all have elevated roles in the Niners' passing game this weekend. While Samuel remains a must-start fantasy commodity every time he's on the field, the addition of pass-catching running back Christian McCaffrey could hurt his overall upside the rest of the season.

He's currently being listed as day-to-day after playing 86 percent of the offensive snaps in Sunday's blowout loss. We should have a better idea of the 26-year-old's status later in the week, but if he's unable to play this weekend against the Los Angeles Rams, Brandon Aiyuk, Jauan Jennings and Ray-Ray McCloud III would be the team's top three pass-catchers, alongside tight end George Kittle. Running back Christian McCaffrey will surely be more involved in the passing game after being limited in his debut with the team last week.

  • Deebo Samuel Day-To-Day With Hamstring Strain

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) is being considered day-to-day after suffering a hamstring strain in the Week 7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Samuel played 86 percent of the offensive snaps on Sunday but caught just five passes for 42 yards on seven targets in the blowout loss. We'll have to monitor Samuel's practice status this week before determining if he'll be available in Week 8 against the Los Angeles Rams. The 26-year-old's fantasy value probably takes a hit with running back Christian McCaffrey now in town, but the main focus for fantasy managers right now is on his health. If Samuel needs more time to heal up and can't play this weekend, Brandon Aiyuk, Jauan Jennings, Ray-Ray McCloud III and perhaps even rookie Danny Gray would have bigger roles in the passing attack.

  • Deebo Samuel Is Seeing Fewer Carries, More Rec Yds

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has a home game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7. The Chiefs are allowing the 14th-most total yards per game and the sixth-most yards through the air. Samuel is coming off a 79-yard receiving game and a 115-yard game three weeks ago. He is averaging 71.8 receiving yards in his past four games but just 8.3 rushing yards. He only had two carries in each of the past three games. His decreased usage as a ballcarrier looks like it will carry through the rest of the season now that the 49ers have acquired RB Christian McCaffrey from the Panthers. McCaffrey might also cut into Samuel's volume on screens and plays designed to spark the offense. But if the 49ers offense moves the ball more efficiently with CMC, gains more first downs, and scores more points, Samuel could make up for it. He is still a premium talent who should be started as a high-upside WR2.

The dynamic dual-threat was unable to produce the epic yards after catch he has in previous games. He was tackled after one short catch for just three yards and another for a one-yard gain. He still made his share of plays, including three first downs. On one of those first down catches, he plowed through Falcons CB A.J. Terrell and knocked his mouthpiece out while gaining extra yards. Next week, Samuel faces the Kansas City Chiefs in a game his team must win to stay above .500.

  • Deebo Samuel A High-Upside WR2 In Week 6

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has a great matchup in Week 6 against a shaky Atlanta Falcons defense. The Falcons are terrible against the pass, allowing the fourth-most passing yards per game, and average-to-below-average against the run. They have allowed some breakaway plays to other speedy playmakers similar to Samuel. Samuel made his first WR1 finish in Week 4 but then dropped to a low-WR3 last week against the Panthers. While riding with Deebo can feel like a roller coaster, the dynamic dual threat usually puts together enough explosive plays to qualify as a borderline WR2. Given the favorable matchup, he is a WR2 with WR1 upside in Week 6.

According to Next Gen Stats, Samuel added 51 more yards after the catch than was expected on similar plays. He also carried the ball twice for two yards, his fewest carries and fewest rushing yards in a game all season. It was his second straight game without making a big play out of the backfield, but it was his biggest game of the season in terms of receptions and receiving yardage.

    San Francisco wide receiver Deebo Samuel projects as a top 12 WR in his Week 4 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing WRs this season. While Rams CB Jalen Ramsey can shut down receivers, Samuel lines up all over the field and likely won't see Ramsey all game long. Samuel outmatches the Rams other cornerbacks. Opposing defenses can't do much to stop him from running the ball, either. The Niners' 26-year-old wide-back went for over 100 scrimmage yards against LA in both regular season matchups last year, then nearly reached 100 yards in their playoff showdown. In his six career games against the Rams, Samuel is averaging 73.3 receiving yards, 17.3 rushing yards, and 0.8 all-purpose touchdowns per game. Fire up the playmaker Deebo Samuel for another likely WR1 finish.

The Broncos have a tough defense, which ranks eighth in PFF grade and third in least yards allowed per game. They have excelled at limiting both receiving and rushing playsboth of Samuel's specialties. But they haven't played any team as dynamic as the 49ers yet. While Samuel could be downgraded for facing a tough defense, he should also be upgraded with Jimmy Garoppolo coming in at 49ers quarterback. In his career, Samuel has scored three more PPR points per game when Garoppolo is playing versus when he is not (benefiting from more receiving yards and TDs). Samuel is an explosive player who can produce in a variety of ways, and it is best to leave him in your lineup most weeks.

  • Fantasy Outlooks for Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, Brandon Aiyuk with Jimmy Garoppolo as the 49ers' Starting Quarterback?

    Trey Lance fractured his ankle in his third start in the NFL against the Seattle Seahawks and will miss the remainder of the season after surgery Monday morning. This is a huge blow for Lance, his fantasy managers, and perhaps the ceiling of the 49ers offense.As always, we aren't here to simply gloss over the serious and disappointing injury, but as fantasy football enthusiasts, we must evaluate what the return of Jimmy Garoppolo as the 49ers' starting quarterback means for fantasy football. The fantasy impact of the injury obviously means Garoppolo is now on the fantasy radar as a streamer in favorable matchups, but what does the chance at QB mean for Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, Brandon Aiyuk, Jauan Jennings, and even the San Francisco rushing attack?We'll dive into it all below. How is Deebo Samuel Affected By Jimmy Garoppolo?Samuel's value and fantasy production could see a nice boost by the return of Garoppolo. While Lance was brought in to elevate the ceiling of the 49ers' offense and add a new dynamic, Jimmy G is the more accurate passer at this point in his career. While Lance was a project, we know what we're getting out of Garoppolo. Samuel should see more accurate targets, but more importantly, he could see more work in the backfield.With Lance out, the quarterback rushing attempts will go back to near the bottom of the league. Lance looked to be set up for a huge rushing season with a lot of attempts, especially near the goal line. Kyle Shanahan isn't going to use Garoppolo as a rusher, so Samuel might get back some of the precious red zone and goal-line rushing work. All in all, this is likely a positive development for Samuel.https://twitter.com/Coach_Yac/status/1571597264447242241 Fantasy Outlooks for Brandon Aiyuk, Jauan Jennings, and George KittleLike Samuel, these guys likely see a boost in target accuracy. The 49ers will likely pass at a higher rate now that the dual-threat weapon in Lance is unavailable. While Garoppolo takes a lot of heat for his decision-making and lack of upside, he's proven to be able to support several fantasy-relevant wide receivers. Expect Samuel to produce WR1 numbers and Aiyuk to produce boom weeks here and there moving forward.When George Kittle (groin) finally makes his season debut he should be considered a top-five option at tight end. Jauan Jennings likely won't be on the fantasy radar, but he's a decent deep league stash in case of an injury to one of the 49ers' pass-catchers. Fantasy Outlooks for 49ers' running backs.Elijah Mitchell (knee) will be out for some time, but Jeff Wilson Jr. and Tyrion Davis-Price will also likely benefit from the change at QB. Put simply, there is now one less rushing threat in the 49ers' offensive attack, so even though the RBs will share carries with Deebo Samuel, they'll see an uptick in usage. Each Niners' running back will have a chance to handle short-yardage and goal-line work, so any of them could be candidates to see a value boost.The 49ers' backfield has been tricky to navigate during the Shanahan era, but it became even trickier when the starting quarterback was a major threat to handle a ton of rushing work. Jimmy Garoppolo Fantasy OutlookGaroppolo will become a low-ceiling and low-floor quarterback in fantasy once again, but he's proven to have value as a streamer in favorable matchups. He won't be what we hoped Lance could be, but he's worth keeping an eye on with something to prove.Ultimately, everyone except Lance has a brighter outlook in wake of his injury. The overall offense won't reach its peak ceiling under Garoppolo, but the floor is far higher under the veteran signal-caller.

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught five passes for 44 receiving yards and added 53 rushing yards on four carries in the Niners' 27-7 thrashing of the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. On San Francisco's second drive, the 26-year-old juked an edge rusher in the backfield then turned upfield for 51 yards to set up the home team for a field goal to extend their early lead. The Niners never looked back. It was just one play that produced more than half of his yardage, but Samuel is dynamic enough to pull off such plays on a regular basis. The dual threat finished with 97 yards from scrimmage. While he did not score a touchdown, Samuel's guaranteed role in the offense on a weekly basis gives him multiple ways to score fantasy points. He will bring his exciting mode of play to Denver next week on Sunday Night Football.

  • Deebo Samuel's Dual-Threat Role Brings Upside

    San Francisco 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel's role in his team's running game offers him some insurance value in his Week 2 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The Niners' passing game looked terrible Week 1, and Samuel only made two catches, but he still finished inside the top 30 WRs in standard scoring on the strength of his 52 rushing yards and rushing TD on eight carries. He should have at least as many carries and possibly more this week (and going forward), as RB Elijah Mitchell is missing the next few games with an MCL injury. In 2021, in games that Mitchell played, Samuel averaged 86.1 receiving yards and 21.7 rushing yards, and in games Mitchell missed, he averaged 77.3 receiving yards and 29.7 rushing yards. His receiving volume might suffer, but he can make up for it on the ground. Samuel is a low-end WR2 and a strong flex play.

    San Francisco 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel begins the season with a favorable matchup against the Chicago Bears. The Niners are 7 point favorites, who are implied to score around 24 points, against a Bears team that is expected to be one of the worst in the league. The Bears allowed the seventh most fantasy points per game (standard scoring) to WRs last season. Samuel was one of the pass catchers to exploit them. He caught six passes against the Bears in Week 7 of 2021 for 171 yards. That was when Jimmy Garoppolo was throwing him the ball. Now with Lance behind center, the only concern is whether Lance can captain the offense and deliver passes on target. Still, given Samuel's elite athleticism and proven production, he should be started with confidence in this enticing opening weekend matchup.
