SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Houston Texans
Deebo Samuel had a great game against the Titans last week, catching nine of 11 targets for 159 yards. He also added 32 yards on five rush attempts. He was held out of the end zone for the first time in five games, but now has at least five carries in six straight games and is one of the primary components of the San Francisco offense.
This week, Samuel faces a Texans defense that ranks 28th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. If Trey Lance starts, downgrade Samuel a little, but not too much. Despite the decreased quality of targets he received, he still had nine balls thrown his way and ran in a touchdown the last time Lance started a game. Samuel is too talented to avoid, so keep him active, regardless of who is behind center.
