San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) will not return to practice on Wednesday. Samuel injured his groin in Week 12 and sat out last week, and he's not guaranteed to be back on the field this Sunday when the team takes on the Cincinnati Bengals. The 25-year-old is still the WR2 in fantasy despite missing last week's game, and he's extremely productive through the air and as a rusher for the Niners this season. If he returns to practice later this week and is active in Week 14, he needs to be returned to all starting fantasy lineups. In Samuel's absence last week, tight end George Kittle went off for two touchdowns, while Brandon Aiyuk and Trent Sherfield saw all but one of the WR targets.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) remains "day-to-day," and the team is hopeful he can play in Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The 25-year-old was ruled out in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks with a groin injury. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the situation throughout the week. Samuel has been terrific this season, hauling in 56 catches for 1,006 yards and five touchdowns on five targets while also seeing 25 carries for 203 yards and five more touchdowns. 49ers tight end George Kittle and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk would see an uptick in targets if Samuel cannot suit up for Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Stay tuned.
The San Francisco 49ers have officially ruled out wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) from their Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Samuel didn't officially practice at all this week but was working on side fields with trainers, and the Niners and fantasy managers are hoping that the 25-year-old will only have to miss this one game. Samuel has been excellent in 2021, ranking as the WR2 in fantasy behind only Cooper Kupp. He's recorded 56 catches for 1,006 yards and five touchdowns on five targets while also seeing 25 carries for 203 yards and five more touchdowns. Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle should be quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's top targets with Samuel sidelined, while Jauan Jennings and Trent Sherfield should also have elevated roles in the passing attack on Sunday.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday. Samuel suffered a groin strain in the Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings and is expected to miss at least this week's game against the Seattle Seahawks. The 25-year-old has been the WR2 in fantasy this year behind only Cooper Kupp, so fantasy managers will sorely miss him this weekend. The Niners will likely have Brandon Aiyuk and Jauan Jennings as their top two receivers for however long Samuel is out, with tight end George Kittle seeing a heavy workload as well. Trent Sherfield and Travis Benjamin will battle for snaps as the No. 3 wideout. Aiyuk, who has been more productive in the second half after a really slow start, could eat against Seattle this Sunday.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) did not take part in Wednesday's practice session. Samuel strained his groin in the Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings and is expected to miss one to weeks, so it won't be a surprise if he misses practice all week. The 25-year-old's injury is big for the 49ers and fantasy managers, as he's been one of the most productive fantasy receivers in football in 2021, and he was also being used more as a ball-carrier in recent weeks. With Samuel likely out this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, Brandon Aiyuk will become much more attractive as a fantasy starter, while Jauan Jennings figures to be in line for the No. 2 role. Expect tight end George Kittle to see even more targets as well.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) sustained a groin strain in the Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings and is expected to miss the next 1-2 weeks. He became one of three players in NFL history to record 1,000 receiving yards, five receiving touchdowns, and five rushing touchdowns in a season. The 25-year-old underwent an MRI on Monday, which revealed a groin strain, and he will be out 1-2 weeks. Samuel has been fantastic this season, hauling in 56 catches for 1,006 yards and five touchdowns while rushing for 203 yards and five scores over 11 games. Brandon Aiyuk should see an uptick in targets and becomes a must-start receiver while Deebo is sidelined. Jauan Jennings is a speculative add in deep-league formats. Samuel will most likely be back in time for the fantasy playoffs, starting Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) is undergoing an MRI exam on his groin on Monday, and while he's expected to miss a little time, it's not considered a major injury, according to a source. It sounds like fantasy managers will be without the 25-year-old, who is second in the NFL with 994 receiving yards, for the team's Week 13 date with the Seattle Seahawks. But the good news is they should have him for the fantasy playoffs to close out the regular season. Samuel, also the No. 2 fantasy wideout in overall points, caught just one of four targets on Sunday for 12 yards, but he salvaged his fantasy day with six carries for 66 yards and two touchdowns. With him set to miss a little time, Brandon Aiyuk will basically become a must-start fantasy receiver, and Jauan Jennings could be worth a pickup in deeper leagues after he scored a TD in the win over the Minnesota Vikings.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught one pass for 12 yards and rushed six times for 66 yards and two rushing touchdowns during a 34-26 Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings. The third-year wideout is built to run through defenders and has the elite vision and foot speed to hit running lanes with confidence. This has resulted in head coach Kyle Shanahan deploying Samuel as a ball carrier, particularly on motion sweeps and outside zone plays, allowing him to use his elite speed and physicality to hit the edge to deliver lucrative chunk plays. Unfortunately, Samuel suffered a groin injury during the fourth quarter and will undergo an MRI on Monday after remaining on the sideline for the final minutes of Sunday's win.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) is set to have an MRI. The superstar wideout sustained a groin injury that forced him out of Sunday's matchup against Minnesota, so a further exam is in order to determine the severity of the ailment. The 25-year-old hybrid playmaker has been on a tear this season, even more so as of late by compiling five total touchdowns over his last three games. Nonetheless, fantasy managers shouldn't hit the panic button just yet, although it's something to monitor. However, if Samuel does miss time moving ahead, then Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle may see more tosses from Jimmy Garoppolo, while Elijah Mitchell could get a few additional touches out of the backfield.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup versus Minnesota. Samuel reportedly sustained a groin injury after taking a hit after he was down, and it's unfortunate considering how well he's played throughout the year. Hopefully for fantasy managers, the injury isn't anything serious, and he won't be forced to miss any time moving ahead.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was held to one reception for 15 yards but carried eight times for 79 yards and a rushing touchdown during a 30-10 Week 11 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Samuel was ineffective as a receiver, but he made up for it in the running game, rattling off 9.9 YPC thanks to a 25-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. Samuel is the alpha in this offense and is being used all over the offense, making him a WR1 with a high-floor if he continues seeing eight or more carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shin) saw limited practice time all week, but he was taken off the final injury report for Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and has been cleared to play on Sunday. Samuel has been managing a shin injury in recent weeks, but he continues to play through it and be extremely productive. The 25-year-old leads the NFL in yards after the catch and went off for five catches (five targets) for 97 yards and a touchdown while also carrying the ball five times for 36 yards and a score last week in the win over the Los Angeles Rams. Samuel is behind only Cooper Kupp in receiving yards (979) and has a mouthwatering matchup against the Jaguars this weekend. He's a must-start WR1 and could see some more rushing attempts with running back Elijah Mitchell (finger) doubtful and JaMycal Hasty (ankle) out.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. He was limited for the second straight practice and is considered "day-to-day" with a bruised shin. The 25-year-old is coming off a monster performance in which he caught all five of his targets for 97 yards and a touchdown while adding five carries for 36 yards and another score. Samuel will look to log a full practice on Friday, but it's unclear if the injury will prevent him from suiting up in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Brandon Aiyuk would see an uptick in targets if Samuel missed Week 11. Stay tuned for further updates.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shin) was able to get in a limited practice on Wednesday. Samuel continues to manage a shin injury that has bothered him in recent weeks, but he continues to practice and play, and he remains a must-start WR1 in all formats heading into a juicy Week 11 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 25-year-old is coming off a huge game in which he caught all five of his targets for 97 yards and a touchdown while adding five carries for 36 yards and another score. The NFL's No. 2 receiver in terms of total yardage may see fewer targets on a weekly basis now that tight end George Kittle is fully healthy and with receiver Brandon Aiyuk taking on a bigger role, but Samuel remains a must-start in fantasy.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shin) is considered day-to-day with a shin bruise. It's unclear at this time if the injury will prevent him from suiting up in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the 49ers' injury reports throughout the week. The 25-year-old caught five passes for 97 yards and a touchdown and added five carries for 36 yards and a rushing touchdown during a 31-10 Week 10 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Samuel has been one of the top receivers in fantasy this season, hauling in 45 catches for 979 yards and five touchdowns over nine games. Brandon Aiyuk would see an uptick in target share if Samuel is ruled out. Stay tuned for more updates.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel had five receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown and added five carries for 36 yards and a rushing touchdown during a 31-10 Week 10 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The third-year wideout caught all five of his targets, including a 40-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter to put the game on ice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan opted to deploy Samuel as a ball-carrier in exotic formations, which led to immense success on the ground, including an eight-yard run in the closing minutes of the first half of Monday's win. He remains a solid WR1 in a great road matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (calf) doesn't carry an injury designation for Monday's game against the Los Angeles Rams. He made it through practice all week without being limited; his calf injury won't be an issue In Week 10. The 25-year-old has been terrific this season, hauling in 49 catches for 882 yards and four touchdowns over eight games in 2021. He owns a whopping 31.5 percent of the team's target share and 9.8 yards after the catch. Rams star corner Jalen Ramsey is expected to shadow Samuel, but Los Angeles ranks 25th in DVOA against WR1s. Fantasy managers can start Samuel as a high-upside WR2 despite the tough matchup against the Rams.
Correcting a previous item, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (calf) is not listed on the team's initial injury report for Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams. Samuel was able to get in a full practice and should be fine to play on Monday night, barring a setback later this week. The 25-year-old had one of his more quiet games of the season in the Week 9 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, catching five of his nine targets for 63 yards. It probably wasn't a coincident with tight end George Kittle returning from Injured Reserve and Brandon Aiyuk posting his best game of the season. Kittle's return will lower Samuel's target ceiling, but he comes into Week 10 as the No. 3 overall fantasy WR and remains a must-start. However, he'll be more in the WR2 range on Monday night and could be facing coverage from shutdown cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (calf) was a limited practice participant on Thursday. Samuel has been playing through a calf issue of late, but as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he looks likely to play on Monday night against the division-rival Los Angeles Rams. With tight end George Kittle returning to the fold in the Week 9 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, Samuel had one of his more quiet games, catching five of his nine targets for 63 yards. It didn't help that Brandon Aiyuk had his best game of the year with six catches for 89 yards and a touchdown. It's possible his calf injury has slowed him down a bit, too. With a possible matchup against Rams shutdown cornerback Jalen Ramsey this week, Samuel is trending down as a WR2 in fantasy.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught five of nine targets for 63 yards during a 31-17 Week 9 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The third-year wideout has been the alpha target within the 49ers' offense this season, especially with George Kittle previously on Injured Reserve. However, with Kittle's activation and subsequent return on Sunday, Samuel saw his targets decrease from eleven to nine. At the same time, his yardage total plunged from 100-plus yards in his previous two outings to 63 yards against the Cardinals. Despite failing to score and seeing his opportunity decrease, Samuel should still be considered a fringe WR1 in PPR formats heading into a Week 10 primetime matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (calf) is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Although head coach Kyle Shanahan said Samuel's injury has gotten worse this week, it appears the star receiver is healthy enough to play. He has truly been fantastic in 2021, hauling in 44 passes for 819 yards and four touchdowns. Despite the injury and a potential snap count, fantasy managers should comfortably roll out Samuel as a WR1 this week.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (calf) is listed as questionable for Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Samuel's calf "is worse this week," so the team will take the next two days to see how he feels leading up to Sunday's action. It sounds as though the 25-year-old will be a game-time decision unless we get more clarification on Saturday, which makes Samuel as shaky fantasy option in Week 9. The NFL's No. 2 receiver in terms of yardage had six catches on nine targets for 171 yards in last week's win over the Chicago Bears, and he needs to be in all starting lineups if he's active. If he doesn't receive clearance to play, Brandon Aiyuk and Mohamed Sanu could be the team's top two receivers, with tight end George Kittle (calf) also likely to be heavily involved in his return from Injured Reserve.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (calf) was limited in practice on Thursday. The Niners top receiver was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, so it's encouraging to see him get some action in on Thursday. Samuel is coming off of a big performance in Week 8 with six receptions for 171 yards and remains the clear-cut top wide receiver for the 49ers. Managers should know for certain on Friday if Samuel will be suiting up on Sunday. As long as he's active for Week 9, Samuel can be treated as a WR1 versus the Arizona Cardinals.
The San Francisco 49ers will continue to manage wide receiver Deebo Samuel (calf) and left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) this week, and both players were held out of practice on Wednesday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan expects Samuel to play in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals, while The Athletic's David Lombardi also expects Williams to return after he missed Week 8. Samuel aggravated his calf injury during a heavy workload last Sunday, but he was still able to haul in six passes for 171 yards in the win over the Chicago Bears. As long as the 25-year-old gets on the practice field later this week, he should remain a must-start fantasy asset as the No. 2 receiver in the NFL in receiving yards (819), behind only Cooper Kupp.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (calf) and left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) will be monitored as the week goes on again, similar to what the team did last week, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Samuel missed practice last Wednesday before being limited on Thursday. He practiced in full on Friday and was off the final injury report for Week 8 against the Chicago Bears. The 25-year-old had another great game as the team's top target, catching six of his nine targets for 171 yards in the win over Chicago. Unless he suffers a setback, he should be fine for Week 9 against the division-rival Arizona Cardinals. Samuel is second in the NFL in receiving yards and is a must-start WR1.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
