Pack to the Future
 Last season Henderson had his opportunities to prove that he can be the next guy up and did not live up to expectations. Now, the Rams added rookie Cam Akers who looks more likely to handle the bulk of the workload leaving Henderson in as nothing more than a handcuff for now.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was odd to see Samuel finish as a top-30 wide receiver last year, because it didn't feel that way throughout the year. He saw just 81 targets and had just two games with more than eight targets. The 49ers offense is going to be run-heavy, but Samuel will be the go-to guy when they do drop back to pass. He's also included in the run-game, as evidenced by his 159 rushing yards and three touchdowns last year. It's tough to see him having a true breakout season, especially when he suffered a broken foot during offseason training. The rumor is that he may not even be ready for Week 1 of the season. When a pass-catcher has foot surgery in the same calendar year, it usually means bad things for fantasy purposes. You may want to wait until 2021 to invest a redraft pick on the young receiver.Some Henderson truthers are dead-set on him being "the guy" in this offense, but the Rams selecting Cam Akers with their first pick in the draft is extremely worrisome. They used a second-round pick on Akers, while Henderson himself was taken with a third-round pick. I'm not willing to say that Henderson is completely out of contention, but his value took a blow in the draft. This is likely to be a timeshare backfield, making him a risky RB3 in redraft leagues.

Samuel suffered a broken foot (a Jones fracture, near the mid-point of the foot) on June 16th and had surgery that same day. He's been given a 10-week timetable for his return to action - six weeks for the fracture to heal plus four weeks to gradually return to playing shape - which would put him back to full speed in late-August and on track to start the season with the 49ers. But the 49ers have since come out and admitted that Samuel almost certainly won't be ready for the season, so your best-case scenario is that you're drafting a wide receiver who is coming off a significant injury and will miss the first few games. Despite Samuel's upside, that's just not someone fantasy managers should consider drafting until one of the very last rounds. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Unfortunately, Samuel recently suffered an injury that puts his availability for the beginning of the NFL season in jeopardy. He now has more competition at the position for targets too with Brandon Aiyuk and Trent Taylor back in the fold. Samuel's a WR4 with upside right now, in my opinion.Henderson was drafted in the 3rd round last year by the LA Rams, but he's currently on a free-fall drop in ADP due to the arrival of Cam Akers. Akers is an athletic RB prospect out of Florida State, but he lacks refinement in the key areas of the position. Akers is at his best in space, which leads me to think that the Rams may be more keen on using Akers as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. That would lead to Henderson being the predominant ball-carrier in between the tackles. Henderson is still going to be involved in this offense, so he's a value at his current ADP. However, he does not have an incredibly high ceiling with Akers' presence and a poor offensive line in front of him. He's a fine bench RB for your fantasy roster that you can plug in on bye weeks.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Deebo Samuel had an impressive though inconsistent debut season, relying on a number of breakout weeks and a surprising amount of very efficient rushing plays. Now heading into the 2020 with a broken left foot, he's a very risky proposition given his limited upside in this run-first offence. He's no longer a sleeper pick and profiles as the kind of guy you should avoid drafting unless you have a lot of bench space.Please don't fall for Darrell Henderson this time. I saw him go in the second round of redraft leagues at times last year which was insane even then. The guy isn't very good, he doesn't catch passes and this offence is nothing compared to what it used to be. At best he's a committee back with no passing down upside and little handcuff value. Hard pass.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Deebo Samuel suffered a broken foot on Tuesday (6/16) during a throwing session with teammates in Nashville and will be having surgery. It is being reported as a Jones fracture, and that he should be able to be on the field early in the season. That doesn't add up for me, Jones fractures are NOT good or easy recovery, in fact they often need a second surgery from what I understand. I'm staying away.They invested heavily in Henderson by trading up to 70 last year to get him. Hendo is arguably the most efficient college RB ever, was among the league's best in both yards created per carry & juke rate, Malcolm Brown has played 54 regular season G's & has less than 1000 yds. @DFFMemphis

Hail to Fantasy Football
A broken foot has me dropping him well outside of my top-30 WRs. 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
No 13 WR in FAN PPG from Weeks 10-17 - SF not a pass-heavy attack, but will likely open up a little more for in 2020, with Deebo and TE Kittle hogging those targets 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
A little worried about the ceiling anyone can have on the passing side in the way this current offense is set up. They've gone from to 2nd, 20th, and 29th in passing the last 3 years while moving up from 22nd, to 11th, and then 2nd in rushing attempts. This is the offense that Shanahan has built and I'm not sure anyone besides Kittle will lead the team in targets and Kittle barely got over 100 this year. His YAC ability will have to pave his way to success. The Pros: Sanders AVG 5.3 TGT/GAME with the 49ers over 10 weeks. During that time, Deebo was WR18, scoring less than 12 fantasy points only twice in that span. As much as Aiyuk might be a pest, to give him the same target volume as what Sanders earned would put him at 3 more targets his rookie year than what Deebo logged. Bringing Aiyuk in was more indicative of the other supporting WRs and exit of Sanders. A sneaky rushing base also helps boost Deebo's base. And while maintaining a strong run to pass ratio is what any team wants, we can't assume they will be bottom 10 in the league in pass ATT in 2020 again.
