LB - SF
This Week Outlook
San Francisco 49ers edge rusher Samson Ebukam is inactive for Monday Night Football against the Arizona Cardinals.
Ebukam has been dealing with quad and Achilles injuries that have now cost him two games. The 49ers will lean on Charles Omenihu, Drake Jackson, and Jordan Willis beside Nick Bosa with Ebukam sidelined. Omenihu offers low-end DL3 upside, with Jackson and Willis being options only in deeper 16+ team leagues.
Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the 49ers are signing OLB Samson Ebukam to a two-year deal worth $12 million that can be worth up to $13.5 million with incentives
The Rams lose another body on defense as Ebukam heads to San Fransisco. The veteran LB recorded 31 tackles and 4.5 sacks along side Aaron Donald last season. The moves adds depth to a weak injury riddled LB core in San Fransisco.
Samson Ebukam recorded three solo tackles, one tackle for loss, and one sack in the Los Angeles Rams' Week 7 destruction of the San Francisco 49ers.
Ebukam's production to this point hasn't matched his play on the field, but a breakout could come any time. Stash him if you have room, keep an eye on him if you don't.
LB Samson Ebukam recorded three solo tackles and two assisted tackles in the Los Angeles Rams' Week 5 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
Ebukam has been fairly quiet since a nice debut in Week 1, with the exception of a sack in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. He played well in this one, though, racking up five total tackles from the outside linebacker position. Ebukam has looked great on film, but it hasn't translated to production to this point. Keep an eye on him, because he could break out anytime.
Rams' LB Samson Ebukam recorded one solo tackle and one sack in their Week 2 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
Ebukam didn't light up the stat sheet in this one, but he continued to play extremely well and his presence was felt all over the field. He got good pressure on the QB from both the blind side and strong side, and almost had two more sacks. He also set the edge well in the run game, and read the screen game well. The statistics will come for Ebukam if the opportunities are there.
