Samuel is the WR27 in fantasy points per game thanks to his remaining wide back role. Yes, he's seen a 29.8% target share, but the team has reverted to his old role in the passing game with his 2.6 aDOT. Maybe that changes with Garoppolo under center, but we have to see it first. Samuel has averaged six carries and 52.5 rushing yards per game this season with 13% of the red zone work on the ground. When he's lined up as a wide receiver, he'll run about 59% of his routes against Ronald Darby and Patrick Surtain lll. Darby has allowed a 40% catch rae and 54.6 passer rating. Surtain lll has given up an 88.9% catch rate and 87.5 passer rating. Samuel is a WR2 this week.

Deebo Samuel racks up 97 total yards in Week 2 win

Deebo Samuel hauled in 5-of-6 targets for 44 yards in San Francisco's Week 2 win against Seattle. He added four carries for 53 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Samuel looked like a true "wide back" this afternoon, as he produced 44 receiving yards and 53 rushing yards. He did only see four carries, though the 49ers held a strong lead the entire game, thus resulting in heavier workloads for the primary tailbacks in Jeff Wilson Jr. and Tyrion Davis-Price. They unfortunately lost Trey Lance to a season-ending ankle injury, though Samuel's stock should not be negatively impacted, due to his strong rapport with Jimmy Garoppolo. He'll remain on the WR1 map against Denver in Week 3.
