Scouting report

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Tennessee Titans

Deebo Samuel has been kind of quiet in the passing game over the past few weeks, with just one reception in each of his previous three games before catching four against the Falcons last Sunday. However, he’s been used consistently in the run game and has six rushing touchdowns over his past five games. He had four catches for 60 yards and six carries for 29 yards and a touchdown last week, and the 49ers clearly view him as a primary component of their offense.

This week, Samuel faces a Titans defense that ranks 30th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. It should be a great game for him and another full day of work. Fantasy managers shouldn’t hesitate to start him in an excellent matchup and we have him ranked as a solid WR1.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Deebo Samuel returned to action last week against the Bengals, and while he only caught one ball for 22 yards, he gained 37 yards and a touchdown on eight rush attempts as well. Samuel has at least five carries in each of his past four games and has five rushing touchdowns in that span – six on the season to go with five receiving touchdowns.

This week, Samuel faces a Falcons defense that ranks 26th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. In a great matchup, and seemingly healthy, Samuel should be considered a must-start in all formats. We have him ranked as a top-five option and he should be an elite fantasy starter again in Week 15.

SF WR Deebo Samuel - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Cincinnati Bengals

Deebo Samuel was hurt last week and is not a lock to play against the Bengals in Week 14, but the team has him listed as day to day with a groin injury, so there’s potential for him to suit up. If he does, he’s a must-start, despite the injury, given the production and target share he’s enjoyed all season. Have a backup plan in place, but as long as he’s active, he should be in your lineup.

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.
