It was odd to see Samuel finish as a top-30 wide receiver last year, because it didn't feel that way throughout the year. He saw just 81 targets and had just two games with more than eight targets. The 49ers offense is going to be run-heavy, but Samuel will be the go-to guy when they do drop back to pass. He's also included in the run-game, as evidenced by his 159 rushing yards and three touchdowns last year. It's tough to see him having a true breakout season, especially when he suffered a broken foot during offseason training. The rumor is that he may not even be ready for Week 1 of the season. When a pass-catcher has foot surgery in the same calendar year, it usually means bad things for fantasy purposes. You may want to wait until 2021 to invest a redraft pick on the young receiver.

Deebo Samuel (broken foot) likely to miss some games to start the season

49ers 2nd-year WR Deebo Samuel is likely to miss a few games to start the season, according to GM John Lynch.

Fantasy Impact

Lynch said on KNBR, “not going to put an exact timeline on it but it's fair to say he may miss some games at the start of the year." The fantasy community was hopeful Samuel would be able to make a full recovery in time for the start of the season, but the 49ers GM doesn’t believe that’s likely to happen. In all likelihood, Samuel starts the season on the active PUP and could miss as many as six games when all is said and done. His value has certainly fallen and he could be a difference maker for your team down the stretch, but have other options available for the early part of the season. Brandon Aiyuk, Jalen Hurd, and Kendrick Bourne are the likely WR beneficiaries of a Deebo absence.
