49ers Beat: WR Deebo Samuel soars, WR Brandon Aiyuk disappears

Trey Lance targeted Deebo Samuel on seven of his 18 pass attempts in the second half and both of Samuel’s touchdowns came with Lance at quarterback.

Meanwhile, it was another quiet afternoon for Brandon Aiyuk, who was targeted three times and who had one catch for 15 yards.

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
