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.Sanu's been a steady fantasy contributor over the past few seasons, but his production fell off last season after the trade to New England. He's now got a full offseason of adjusting to this system, but there may simply be too many other options in this receiving corps for him to be a reliable fantasy option this season. Unless we get word that he's going to be a full-time starter, I'd recommend avoiding him this season.
Mike Tagliere

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.It's crazy to think the Patriots gave up a second-round pick for Sanu last year, especially when you know he'll turn 31 later this year. He's going to start for them, and it's possible his value went up with Cam Newton's signing, though it's important to remember Newton has thrown more than 24 touchdowns in his career just once. Still, Sanu tried playing through injuries with the Patriots last year and it affected his production. He may have some bye week streaming appeal if Newton can get his career back on track.

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.Sanu is "faster, quicker, leaner and in better shape" after offseason ankle surgery, according to his trainer Hilton Alexander. Hahahahaha!!!

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. It's worth noting, however, that Trent Taylor suffered an identical injury last year and, because of issues during the surgery, wound up missing the season. There's no reason to expect an identical fate for Samuel, but it's a cautionary tale that warrants consideration as we head into draft season. For now, it's worth considering drafting Samuel as a borderline WR3, but that ranking will likely shift depending on how the news of his recovery plays out.The Patriots surprisingly gave up a second-round pick for Sanu in the middle of the 2019 season. Unfortunately, he didn't live up to his cost. After seeing 14 targets and catching 10 passes for 81 yards and a score in his second game, he failed to top three receptions or 35 yards in any of his remaining seven games, including the post-season. He'll be back with the Patriots again this year, but without Tom Brady, and with a career of mediocre totals, it's unlikely that Sanu will be worth drafting in fantasy circles.

A broken foot has me dropping him well outside of my top-30 WRs.

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

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.
