The Atletic expects Jauan Jennings to become the No. 2 wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers following the injury to Deebo Samuel. (The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact:

Samuel is expected to miss one-to-two weeks after suffering an injury Week 12. His absence would push Brandon Aiyuk into the No. 1 WR role, and The Athletic expects Jennings to move into the No. 2 role. Jennings saw three targets against the Vikings Week 12, finishing with two catches for 24 yards and a touchdown. While he may not see a ton of volume, he does seem to be a red-zone target given his large frame. He'll be the third option, also including George Kittle, on a team that prefers to run the ball, but he's someone that's worth keeping an eye on should Samuel miss more time than expected.
