 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
His 2021 was elite on an all-time scale, and his week-to-week consistency was unprecedented at WRNo. 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 concerning
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Cooper Kupp broke fantasy football last season. He led all wide receivers in target share, targets, receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. He was also fourth at the position in weighted opportunity. Kupp averaged the most fantasy points per game (21.6, 0.5 PPR) of any wide receiver since 2012.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.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 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 times
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
What else is there to say about Cooper Kupp's historic 2021 campaign? The guy was essentially lapping the other wide receivers, finishing No. 1 overall in points per game, receiving yards (1,947) and target share (31%) with over 200 targets total in 21 games played. New quarterback Matthew Stafford elevated Kupp back inside the top-5 fantasy WRs - as he previously was in 2019. Stafford's arrival in L.A. was the code to cracking Kupp's untapped potential especially with touchdowns. After catching just three the year prior, Kupp led the league with 16 TD scores - a feat that has happened only six times since 2007. However, regression will also certainly hit Kupp's production in 2022, just because it's near impossible for him to repeat his once-in-a-lifetime production. Of the five WRs that caught at least 16 touchdowns, they averaged just 6.6 TDs the following season. Only two (Davante Adams, Randy Moss) were able to haul in double-digit scores.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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kupp hit the tripple crown of receiving in the fantasy season, finishing with 138 receptions for 1,829 yards and 15 touchdowns. The combination of Matthew Stafford being in LA and Kupp turning 29-years old in 2022 should keep him atop the fantasy rankings again in 2022.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.
