  • 49ers Extend Kyle Shanahan, John Lynch

    Headshot for Nick Bosa

    Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch have now signed their second round of extensions with the 49ers. The team’s power brokers, who arrived in 2017, finalized new deals Friday. This comes three years after the pair received their initial extensions. At the time, Lynch was signed through 2024 and Shanahan through 2025. The duo is now […]

  • Deebo Samuel Considered Day-To-Day With Rib Injury

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (ribs) escaped any major injuries as the team didn't find any fractures on Friday. His ribs are sore and he's being considered day-to-day which is very good news for the team and his fantasy managers alike. Samuel played a big part in the team's win over the Giants on Thursday night after he posted six catches for 129 yards and a touchdown. Managers will want to monitor his status, but the longer rest until their Week 4 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals should do wonders.

  • Deebo Samuel Stars In Rout Of Giants

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel had the game fantasy managers have been waiting for against the New York Giants on Thursday night. Samuel, 27, lit up the New York defense to the tune of six receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown while tacking on one carry for two yards. With receiver Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) on the sideline, Samuel was clearly the focal point of San Francisco's passing attack. He was targeted 12 times in the game, which was not only a season-high for Samuel but represented the most targets in a single game for any 49ers player this year. Samuel will have another favorable matchup in Week 4 when the 49ers host the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Deebo Samuel With Strong Upside In Week 3

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel enters his team's Thursday night home opener against the New York Giants with momentum. In Week 2 Samuel caught six-of-nine targets for 63 yards and added five carries for 38 yards and his first touchdown of the year. The Giants' defense have held their own against wide receivers in 2023, ranking ninth in the NFL in yards per game against receivers. However, they're tied for second-worst against the run so Samuel could contribute similarly on the ground this week. In addition, fellow receiver Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) is a game-time decision and Samuel may be targeted more often if Aiyuk is ruled out. Consider him a WR2 this week with distinct WR1 upside.

  • Deebo Samuel Rushes For Touchdown In Win

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel contributed to his team's 30-23 Week 1 win against the Rams in Los Angeles through the air and on the ground. He finished the day with six receptions on nine targets for 63 yards to go with five carries for 38 yards, including a 17-yard touchdown. Samuel very nearly had a touchdown reception as well after he had gotten behind defenders on a deep shot, but quarterback Brock Purdy overthrew him. It was good to see Samuel have success in the rushing game after some speculation that head coach Kyle Shanahan might limit his carries coming off an injury-impacted 2022 season and only getting two carries last week at Pittsburgh. Up next is a Thursday night home matchup against the New York Giants, where Samuel will remain a solid WR2.

  • Deebo Samuel - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel opened the season with a somewhat disappointing performance last week in the team's 30-7 win at the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 49ers produced plenty of offense against an improved defensive unit, but Samuel only got a modest slice of the pie, finishing with five catches for 55 yards and no touchdowns. He also chipped in two carries for eight yards. Samuel's seven targets were a close second to fellow receiver Brandon Aiyuk's eight and he out-snapped Aiyuk by one, but Aiyuk got the touchdowns. Start Samuel as a solid WR2 against an unproven Rams defense in Los Angeles and hope it's his turn to find the end zone for this talented San Francisco offense.

  • Deebo Samuel Efficient In Season-Opening Win

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught five passes for 55 yards on seven targets in the 49ers' Week 1 win at the Pittsburgh Steelers. Samuel took a back seat to fellow receiver Brandon Aiyuk in targets and production in this one. Fantasy managers love to see the efficiency of 11 yards per reception but a couple more targets or a touchdown would have been nice. Samuel will look to get closer to his ceiling in a Week 2 matchup in Los Angeles against the Rams, whose pass defense looked surprisingly good against Seattle this week.

  • Offseason In Review: San Francisco 49ers

    Headshot for Brandon Aiyuk

    The 49ers have managed to field top-flight rosters — outside of the quarterback position — over the past two seasons. That talent, along with Kyle Shanahan‘s play-calling acumen, powered San Francisco to consecutive NFC championship games. Neither going the 49ers’ way applies some pressure for the otherwise well-built team to come up with a viable […]

  • Deebo Samuel Enters Season As Solid WR2

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is a quality play for fantasy managers in Week 1 at the Pittsburgh Steelers. Samuel, who had a frustrating year in 2022 due to injury, nevertheless retains the upside of his excellent 2021 season. The Steelers should have an improved and healthier defense than they did in 2022, but Samuel has the talent to make any defense look silly with chunk plays after the catch. As a WR2, his weekly floor is relatively low compared to those near him in projections because of the many talented receiving weapons at the disposal of quarterback Brock Purdy. All told, fantasy managers should put Samuel in their Week 1 lineup as a WR2 with WR1 upside.

  • Deebo Samuel Looks Explosive After The Catch

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught two passes on three targets for 39 yards in Saturday's 21-20 preseason win against the Denver Broncos. Samuel, 27, came out of the game after the first drive alongside starters Brock Purdy and Brandon Aiyuk. The catches came on short routes, after which the versatile Samuel did what he does best, exploding through arm tackles and ripping off bulk yardage. With San Francisco having several offensive mouths to feed, consider Samuel a volatile WR2 in fantasy drafts this season.

  • Deebo Samuel Looks Poised For Bounce-Back Season

    Headshot for Deebo Samuel

    ESPN's Nick Wagoner writes that San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel looks poised for a big bounce-back season in 2023 after he publicly lamented his play last year. Samuel put in the work in the offseason and has come back feeling faster and lighter while still maintaining his physicality. He's been making plays in the running game and down the field as a receiver this week in training camp practice. The 27-year-old was held back by injuries in 2022 and he remains a risky WR2 in fantasy, especially if the Niners continue to use him on the ground. Samuel is excellent in the open field after the catch and also has a high ceiling, but he'll be a risk-reward fantasy selection that will continue to have a ton of competition for targets among all of San Fran's offensive weapons.

    Samuel struggled because of injuries and uneven play last year, but if history is any indication, he's due to rebound.
