Scouting report

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Minnesota Vikings

Deebo Samuel had only one catch for 15 yards last week against the Jaguars, but he still ended up with a nice fantasy outing after rushing for 79 yards and a touchdown on eight attempts. Samuel has been nothing short of spectacular this season and is currently third in fantasy points among wide receivers.

This week, Samuel faces a Vikings defense that ranks 32nd in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. In a great matchup and a game that could be a shootout, we have Samuel ranked as a top-five option and he should be active in all leagues.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Deebo Samuel had a great game against the Rams on Monday night, with five rushing attempts, five receptions, 133 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. Samuel has seven touchdowns on the season and is already at 979 receiving yards – second in the league behind Cooper Kupp.

This week, Samuel faces a Jaguars defense that ranks 15th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Samuel is tied for seventh in the league in targets and his target share has remained strong the past two weeks, even with George Kittle back in the lineup. As such, he’s an elite fantasy option in all formats and we have him ranked inside our top five. He’s an automatic start.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Los Angeles Rams

Deebo Samuel was nicked up last week, but he played anyway and still led the team with nine targets. He caught five balls for 63 yards, finishing with his second-lowest fantasy total of the season. Samuel has been lights out and if five receptions for 63 yards is a bad game for him, it shows the kind of season he’s having.

This week, Samuel faces a Rams defense that ranks 11th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Assuming he’s healthy after being questionable heading into last week, Samuel is a must-start, despite a tough matchup. His target share and production this season are too good to pass up. Temper expectations due to the matchup, however, as we have him ranked as a solid WR2 option, instead of in his typical WR1 territory.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Arizona Cardinals

Deebo Samuel had another great game last week against the Bears, catching six of his nine targets for 171 yards. Samuel is in the midst of a phenomenal season. He has five touchdowns, four games over 100 yards and hasn’t seen fewer than eight targets in any game this year.

This week, Samuel faces a Cardinals defense that ranks ninth in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Samuel has been so good and gotten so many targets this year that you can’t sit him, even in tougher matchups. Expect another busy day for him, and we have him ranked inside our top-10 wide receivers this week. Start him.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Chicago Bears

Deebo Samuel continued his onslaught of production this season with seven catches for 100 yards and a touchdown last week against the Colts. Samuel is fourth in the NFL with 648 receiving yards, despite already having his bye week. His continued targets and production regardless of who is behind center make him a steady option for fantasy managers and a pleasant surprise as a legit WR1.

This week, Samuel faces a Bears defense that ranks 23rd in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. With a good matchup and significant production this season, he’s a must-start this week and we have him ranked as a top-five option. Start him.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Indianapolis Colts

Deebo Samuel had just three receptions and a carry before the bye last week, but he made the most of it. He had 71 total yards from scrimmage and scored on his one rushing attempt. Samuel also led the team with nine targets, though the quality of those targets definitely took a dip with the quarterback change to rookie Trey Lance. Keep an eye on that development moving forward if Lance ends up back at the helm.

This week, Samuel faces a Colts defense that ranks 25th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. It should be a great matchup and with Jimmy Garoppolo seemingly back in action, there should be zero reservations starting Samuel as an elite fantasy option. We have him ranked inside our top five this week.

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.
