Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Samuel was able to score last week, but it's hard to trust him as anything more than a low-end WR3/FLEX play. He's just simply not seeing enough targets to be viewed any higher than that. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Over the last two weeks, he's led the 49ers wide receivers with 14 targets, 8 receptions, 85 yards, and one touchdown. Those are all high marks on the team in that time, but that's not saying much. Samuel does look great, though, and that's something to be happy about with him coming off broken foot surgery just a few months ago. Do the Patriots have Stephon Gilmore shadow him? Should that scare you that much? Well, Gilmore hasn't been the shutdown cornerback he was last year, as he's allowed 13-of-21 passing for 192 yards and two touchdowns in his coverage to this point. Did you happen to see Samuel's average depth of target was negative 5.3 yards last week? They're finding creative ways to get the ball into his hands, so it's up to him to create after the catch, something he's done extremely well during his time in the NFL. We can't pretend this is a great matchup considering there's been just five receivers who've topped 48 yards through five games. Samuel is moving up the ranks but finds himself stuck in that borderline WR3/4 territory. There will be better days for him, though you never know when he breaks a tackle and is just gone. His targets do warrant consideration in starting lineups.
