Draft note
by John Paulsen
Samuel was limited Week 4 and played one snap in Week 14. When those games are excluded, he averaged 6.0 receptions for 71 yards and 0.20 touchdowns. The resulting 11.5 PPG (half-PPR), which includes some rushing production, would equate to midrange WR2-type numbers. It’s a five game sample, and Brandon Aiyuk was active for four of them, while George Kittle was active for only three. In the four games where all four players were active, Samuel saw a higher target share (16.9%) and reception share (18.2%) than Aiyuk, though Aiyuk had a higher share of receiving yards (21.9% to 18.2%). Since 2019, Samuel has averaged 9.5 PPG in 17 games with Kittle and 12.6 PPG in the five games without him, and the target difference (8.6 vs. 4.8) is stark. Kittle might impact Samuel’s usage more than Aiyuk.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Arizona Cardinals

Deebo Samuel had a great game last week, catching eight balls for 156 yards and two touchdowns. Samuel is third among all wide receivers in fantasy points this season and he’s been a target hog, with 12 last week and 42 on the season – fifth in the NFL.

This week, Samuel faces a Cardinals defense that ranks 16th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Samuel caught his two touchdown passes last week from Trey Lance, so I wouldn’t worry about the change in quarterback affecting his targets. Fantasy managers should have him active in all leagues, regardless of who starts at quarterback, and we have him ranked as a top-10 option.
