Samuel's average depth of target of 2.2 yards wasn't just the lowest among wide receivers, it was so comically low that it's difficult to believe it's not a typo. To be fair, it's hard to criticize anything Samuel did last year, given that he was limited to seven games because of a Jones fracture in his foot and a hamstring injury. But still, the fact that he was targeted closer to the line than most running backs isn't a great sign for his long-term value. Worse still is that between George Kittle's dominance, Brandon Aiyuk's emergence, and a quarterback position in flux, it's difficult to see a scenario where Samuel turns into a safe fantasy option. There will be weeks where Samuel will probably be worth starting, but if you draft him as anything but a bench option then you're taking unnecessary risk.

Samuel is probably the third option on a team that might not pass it as much as fantasy owners would like. Kittle is #1, and Aiyuk is #2. Unless you think Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance are passing for 4,000 yards and 35 TDs (I don't). It's hard to see Samuel's having much upside.This looks like the Rams offense only farther East. They'll run 3 WR sets often. Boyd is probably the third option. He's the slowest out of of him, Higgins, and Chase. With a tough schedule it's hard to see much upside for Boyd in 2021.

 For the past couple of seasons, Tyler Boyd has been the definition of consistency. In 2018, he finished as the WR17, meanwhile he was the WR23 in 2019. Additionally, through the first 10 weeks of the 2020 season - when Burrow was healthy - Boyd was the WR18 in all of fantasy football. Once Burrow left the lineup though, Boyd's production fell off a cliff and he was the WR66 from Weeks 11-17. There are certainly reasons to be optimistic that Boyd can get back to performing at a top-tier level, but it all comes down to the difference between AJ Green last season and Ja'Marr Chase entering the lineup. Boyd was performing well because of Green's inefficiencies and inability to make the most out of his targets. Chase should see as much - if not more - work than Green did and he has the ability to capitalize on his opportunity. At that point, once you factor in Tee Higgins too, there's not much left over for Boyd to perform as a top-20 receiver like he was last season. He'll still be very fantasy relevant, but he should play third fiddle to Chase and Higgins in this offense. My Very Early Projection: 81-838-4.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Something tells me that Samuel is going to become the Jarvis Landry of the 2020's. What do I mean by that? Well, he's probably going to finish better than where I have him ranked at the end of the season, but just because he finishes as the WR24 (hypothetically), it doesn't necessarily mean he's the 24th best receiver to roster. Through 22 career games, Samuel has never hit the "boom" mark of 25 PPR points. On top of that, there are suddenly a lot of mouths to feed in the 49ers pass attack. He's a solid player with a decent floor, but he won't be the reason you win a fantasy championship. You can take him as a stable WR3, or shoot for someone with a higher ceiling/lower floor.
