2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
2019 2nd round NFL Draft pick Deebo Samuel showed out as a rookie, contributing over 800 yards as a receiver while adding an additional 159 yards as a runner, scoring six touchdowns in the process. Samuel looked to be in a great situation to improve on those numbers heading into his second season in the league, playing on a roster of mostly unproven pass catchers aside from tight end George Kittle. Unfortunately, Samuel suffered a number of injuries, as well as a trip to the COVID-IR, which effectively led to a mostly lost 2020 season.

Samuel now heads into his third season looking like the third option in and offense that should still lean run-heavy. Samuel himself does make contributions on the ground, but in order for him to be a consistent fantasy wide receiver, we need him to see a heavy target share. Competing with Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle won't allow for that every week, so there are bound to be frustrating weeks for Samuel owners, even if he's the type of player who can sometimes turn six targets into a usable fantasy day. There will be and have been times where he just doesn't see enough volume to be a fantasy contributor.

The harsh reality is that Samuel might just be a better real-life receiver than he is a fantasy one. His gritty contributions as a YAC monster make him extraordinarily frustrating for defenses to defend, but he's been held to four or fewer catches in 13 of his 22 regular season NFL starts, despite being the top wide receiver on his team as a rookie and playing without both Kittle and Aiyuk at times in 2020.

Samuel has contributed four 100-yard games in his career, he's never once caught a touchdown pass in the same week that he went over 100 yards. He's also never scored more than one touchdown in a game. This could certainly be an anomaly and he'll almost certainly get there at least a few times throughout his career, but the reality is that - through two seasons - Samuel hasn't produced any real "spike" weeks in fantasy.

Samuel's season-ending numbers will likely be fine and he's a fine player to target in best ball formats, but he's someone who's probably going to be frustrating to own in traditional season-long leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Elijah Mitchell Out for Week 15, knee injury
Swelling in the knee has not subsided
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 17, 4:56 pm

San Francisco
Kyle Shanahan said the reason Elijah Mitchell won't play is due to his knee not his Dec. 5 concussion. He said the swelling in the knee has not subsided. (He also thought Mitchell could be cleared from the concussion protocol later today). (Matt Barrows on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers will press forward with Jeff Wilson, Deebo Samuel and JaMycal Hasty at running back. Samuel's use in the running game in recent weeks has limited his pass routes and thus his fantasy ceiling. It also limits the ceiling of Wilson in this game against the Falcons.


Injury Deebo Samuel expected to play
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 12, 7:15 am

San Francisco
49ers’ WR Deebo Samuel, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a groin injury, will play vs. the Bengals, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's unclear at this point if Samuel will be limited but his return throws cold water on the value of running back Jeff Wilson as Samuel has seen work in the backfield the last few weeks and has a nose for the endzone. Deebo is a risky WR2 against the Bengals in Week 14.


Injury Elijah Mitchell Out, Deebo Samuel Questionable
Jeff Wilson expected to start at running back
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 10, 5:01 pm

San Francisco
Deebo Samuel says his groin injury is playing out similarly to the issue he had in 2019. He missed one game that year, had three catches for 19 yards, two carries for 29 yards and a TD in the first game back. "I thought he had a real good week." -- Kyle Shanahan on Jeff Wilson, who's likely to start at RB for the 49ers. (Matt Barrows on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) has been ruled Out while Wilson was able to practice this week and is expected to start at running back. JaMycal Hasty will play too and likely handle some third-down work. The Bengals have given up the 8th most fantasy points to running back this season making Mitchell a solid RB2. Deebo's health should be monitored throughout the weekend. If he goes, he'll be a risky WR2.


Injury Deebo Samuel likely to miss next game or two
Groin strain
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 29, 8:10 pm

San Francisco
49ers coach Kyle Shanahan with following injury update: WR Deebo Samuel (groin) -- It's a strain. Expected to miss 1-2 weeks. (ESPN - Nick Wagoner)

FFToday's Take: This is pretty much the best-case scenario for Samuel, who has mostly been able to avoid or play through the injuries that hampered him so often in his first two seasons. Since Samuel was essentially working as the change-of-pace back for Elijah Mitchell in recent weeks, it is now fair to wonder if his touches will be given to Kyle Juszczyk, JaMycal Hasty (if he can shake his nagging ankle injury) or Jeff Wilson. Look for Juszczyk to see the most work among the non-Mitchell backs in Week 13 versus the Seahawks.


Injury Deebo Samuel, Elijah Mitchell expected to play
Both could be limited
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 7, 7:00 am

San Francisco
49ers’ RB Elijah Mitchell (rib) and WR Deebo Samuel (calf), each listed as questionable for Sunday, both are expected to play vs. Cardinals, per sources. But team also uncertain how long each player will be able to go, and is hoping there are no setbacks. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Deebo's calf injury got worse after last week's game making him a risky fantasy play in Week 9. The 49ers activated Jeff Wilson off IR this week making the running back room more crowded. Both players, along with tight end George Kittle could be limited against Arizona.
