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.
