Draft note
by John Paulsen
Samuel’s stock has taken a hit since news broke that he needed to have surgery for a Jones fracture in his foot. He’s expected to miss 10-16 weeks, depending on whose reports you believe, but the 49ers are likely to be careful with Samuel after dealing with Trent Taylor’s Jones fracture last season. He had surgery on June 18, so 10 weeks would put him back on August 27 while 16 weeks would pencil in his return before Week 5. Current projections assume that he’ll miss four games, and that’s on the conservative side of things. He’s a player to monitor in August to see how his recovery is going. As a WR4 he could pay dividends down the stretch. He started seeing 70% or more of the snaps in Week 10 and from that point on, he averaged 4.1 catches for 64 yards and 0.18 touchdowns (on 6.1 targets per game), while adding 20.4 yards and another 0.18 touchdown as a runner. (This includes three playoff games.) The resulting 12.6 fantasy points per game (half-PPR) equate to high-end WR2 numbers.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at New England Patriots

Deebo Samuel caught his first touchdown of the season last week in a victory over the Rams, along with six receptions for 66 yards. He caught every ball thrown his way in a better game for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and he was second on the team in targets behind George Kittle. Samuel has been working his way back from an offseason injury, and he’s starting to look more like the productive receiver we saw as a rookie.

This week, Samuel faces a Patriots defense that ranks 15th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers, so they’re a little easier to throw on than they were last year. Samuel should be considered a risky WR3 option, and fantasy owners should be a little concerned he lines up against Stephon Gilmore, considering Samuel has taken 70% of his snaps out wide this year.
