We thought he might come back before their bye, but they played it safe and held him out. As long as he practices in full at some point this week, we should feel confident he'll be playing a full-time role in this offense. The last time they played the Rams, he had one of the best games any wide receiver has against them, racking up six catches for 66 yards and a touchdown, though if you recall, he totaled 98 yards AFTER the catch in that game. How is that possible? His average depth of target was 5.3 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Odd, I know. But give them credit for finding a way to get the ball into his hands. That's basically the only thing they're below average against, is allowing a 64.9 percent completion-rate to receivers, though those receptions go for a league-low 10.68 yards a pop. Unfortunately, the Rams are also the only team in the NFL who's allowed negative yards on wide receiver carries. Seriously, they've faced nine carries by wide receivers, but those have netted -1 yard. You're best off playing it safe and waiting to see Samuel play a full game before putting him back in lineups, as he's just a risky WR4 option this week.

Deebo Samuel has career-game in return from injury

Deebo Samuel hauled in 11-of-13 targets for 133 yards during the 49ers' 23-20 win over the Rams' in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

The 11 receptions and 13 targets were easily career-highs for the second-year receiver as the Rams' simply had no answer. Sunday's showing was extremely encouraging as it was Samuel's first game after missing the last four with a hamstring injury. With no signs of reaggravation, the 24-year-old wideout will be on the WR2/3 spectrum for a Week 13 matchup against the Bills.
