George Kittle Note

With Deebo Samuel sidelined by a groin injury in Week 13, Kittle erupted for 9-181-2 on 12 targets. He even added a 5-yard carry for good measure. In the five games he's played since returning from a calf injury, Kittle has had 25-379-5. You're starting him in season-long leagues regardless of whether Deebo is back, obviously, but Kittle's target outlook will be enhanced if Deebo sits again. Kittle is the TE2 this week behind only Travis Kelce and a worthwhile DraftKings building block at $6,900.

Brandon Aiyuk Note

Deebo Samuel's Week 13 absence due to a groin injury didn't lead to a target windfall for Aiyuk. He was targeted six times and had 3-55-0, while TE George Kittle was the one who put up huge receiving numbers. Aiyuk hasn't lived up to expectations this year, but after being a no-show in the early part of the season, he's at least been relevant of late. Over his last five games, he's had 22-346-2. With or without Deebo in the lineup, consider Aiyuk a midrange WR3 this week against the Bengals and their solid set of cornerbacks.

Deebo Samuel Note

Samuel missed Week 13 with a groin injury, and it's unclear whether he'll be back for Week 14. He's had a monster season, and his recent usage as a runner has been an interesting twist. Over his last three games, Samuel has had 19 rushing attempts for 181 yards and four touchdowns. Those are numbers that would make some starting RBs jealous. In Weeks 11-12, the carries seemed to come at the expense of Samuel's usage in the passing game, as he had just 2-27-1 receiving on six targets. If Samuel is able to go, he'll probably get at least a handful of carries since the Niners are dealing with injury problems at running back. But Samuel stakeholders will have to check his status at the week progresses.
