Draft note
by John Paulsen
Samuel posted 62-882-11 in his senior season at South Carolina. He missed most of his junior season, but had an impressive 59-783-1 (adding 98 yards and six touchdowns on the ground) as a sophomore. Two beat writers have projected that Samuel would start as the 49ers’ “Z” receiver, making him a starter opposite Dante Pettis. George Kittle is likely going to lead this team in targets, but Samuel could be a good value in the later rounds, especially in PPR formats. Kendrick Bourne posted 30 catches for 361 yards (on 45 targets) in eight starts last year. Samuel finished as the seventh-best prospect in Kevin Zatloukal’s WR Success Model.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Deebo Samuel was very good last week in a win over the Bengals, catching five of the seven balls thrown his way for 86 yards and a touchdown. The rookie lined up in multiple spots on the field and led the team in targets, making it clear the 49ers intend to use their second-round rookie extensively this season. Samuel was targeted only three times in Week 1, but with the offense looking more comfortable against the Bengals, he was able to show what he could do.

This week, Samuel faces a vulnerable Steelers defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers through two games, including 10 catches to Tyler Lockett last week, who lines up in similar ways to Samuel. He’s risky as a rookie in a questionable passing attack, but as a low-end WR3, particularly in PPR formats, he has enough upside to consider in deep leagues.
