Meanwhile, it was another quiet afternoon for Brandon Aiyuk, who was targeted three times and who had one catch for 15 yards.
The 49ers haven’t had a wide receiver reach 1,000 yards since Anquan Boldin did it in 2014. Samuel is already 49 percent of the way there and is on pace for 2,083 yards. The single-season receiving yards record is 1,964 set by Calvin Johnson in 2012, the story said. The story added through four games, Samuel has gotten 32.3 percent of the 49ers’ targets. Aiyuk has gotten 8.5 percent. With Lance expected to start at least the next game, it's good to know he's looking Samuel's way.
