WR - SF
This Week Outlook
49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Seahawks.
Samuel played in just seven games this year as he dealt with both a broken foot and this hamstring injury. It was ultimately a lost season for both him and the 49ers. Brandon Aiyuk also passed him on the team's depth chart, but playing in a Kyle Shanahan offense will keep Samuel fantasy relevant next year.
49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) remained sidelined for Tuesday's practice.
It's unclear if Samuel will return at all this year. San Francisco faces Arizona on Saturday and fantasy managers should once again plan to be without Samuel for this one. Brandon Aiyuk will remain a WR1 in his absence.
49ers WR Deebo Samuel has officially been ruled out for Week 15 with a hamstring injury.
Samuel has shown flashes this season, but he just hasn't been able to stay healthy. He started the season on IR after having foot surgery and also missed time mid-season with a separate foot issue. Samuel injured his hamstring on the first play in Week 14, and it looks like it could sideline him for a while as HC Kyle Shanahan said it "doesn't look good." This could be the end do a disappointing sophomore campaign for the young wideout. In his absence, Brandon Aiyuk should see plenty of targets and has WR1 upside against a weak Dallas D/ST.
According to 49ers' head coach Kyle Shanahan, the hamstring injury suffered by Deebo Samuel on the first play of the game 'doesn't look good'.
ESPN's Nick Wagoner also hints that Samuel has a real shot to miss the remainder of the season given his previous history with hamstring issues this year. It's a real blow for the young receiver as he was just finding his stride with 22 receptions and 206 over his last two games. Whether or not he is forced to miss the remainder of the season, rookie Brandon Aiyuk should command a massive target share and should have WR1 upside every week that Samuel is out of the lineup. Aiyuk has 36 receptions for 495 yards and three touchdowns over his last five games and is shaping up to be a real league-winner for those who snagged him. Expect the 49ers' to bring further clarity to Samuel's status at some point during the week but he should be considered doubtful for Week 15.
49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) is questionable to return in Week 14 against Washington.
Not ideal. Samuel got injured on one of the first plays of the game. We'll pass along any updates once the 49ers have more information.
