I doubt SF will utilize Deebo in the same manner they did last season as it has caused some friction between Deebo and the team. He is still the most physical WR in the NFL and will continue to terrorize defenses. He would be higher on my list if we knew what to expect from QB Trey Lance. 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
No. 2 WR in half-PPR FPPG, but sans his rushing output, he would have been WR25, which makes reports of plans to dial back his carries concerningMove to Philly should be mostly lateral move for Brown, who should still have plenty of big-play opportunities working off play action in run-heavy system
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Before excelling in the "wide back" role for the 49ers, Deebo Samuel was already an elite option at wide receiver for fantasy football. Last year in Weeks 1-9, he was the WR2 in fantasy points per game behind only Cooper Kupp. Over that stretch, Samuel was leading all wide receivers in yards per route run (minimum 25 targets, per PFF). He averaged an insane 10.1 targets, 6.1 receptions, and 110.3 receiving yards per game, so "wide back" or no "wide back" matters very little. Samuel is a top 12 wide receiver in 2022.If you're concerned about A.J. Brown's move to Philadelphia, don't be. Brown is one of the most talented wide receivers in the NFL, and talent plays regardless of area code or jersey. Brown was the fourth-highest graded wide receiver per PFF last season and fifth in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets). Before switching to a run-first approach, the Eagles were sixth in neutral passing rate (Weeks 1-6) last season. We could see Philly go back to this pass-heavy offensive approach to see if Jalen Hurts truly is the guy. This means the target volume for Brown could surpass expectations.

5/15: Re-followed the 49ers. HUGE. But in all seriousness, repairing and returning to San Fran = ideal. Let's hope this is a sign for better times5/2: Traded to the one team (PHI) that ran more than Titans. Could be a sign they're revamping their philosophy though.
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Deebo Samuel made me pay the price for overlooking him, as the talented wideout finished last season as the WR2 overall and in points per game (18.8). His receiving production alone would have him placed inside the top-10. But there's reason to believe that Samuel won't be able to sustain that same elite production from last season. Natural regression is firmly in play considering no WR earned more fantasy points above expectation than Samuel did in 2021. And that number doesn't come as a surprise considering nearly 30% of Samuel's fantasy points came from rushing alone.The veteran has never played in a pass-happy offense, and that doesn't necessarily project to change too drastically if the Eagles run back their operation ground and pound from a season ago. Still, Brown's talent has yet to hold him back amid a poor situation - WR5 in fantasy points per game in 2020 - and that shouldn't stop in Philly. He will be the alpha dog for the Eagles and remain a fantasy WR1 in 2022 fantasy leagues. Brown finished fourth in yards per route run (2.72) and in target rate per route run (28%) despite battling injuries last season.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Samuel was incredible this year with 1,630 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns in the fantasy season. He should have another stellar year playing in Kyle Shanahan's offense, provided his contract situation does not result in a lengthy holdout.Brown had only 811 yards from scrimmage and 4 TDs in the fantasy season due to four missed games and an offense that struggled without Derrick Henry. Brown is now an Eagle and he is a borderline WR1, depending on how well Jalen Hurts does finding him on the deep passes.
