Deebo Samuel Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel led the team in receiving with 6 catches on 9 targets for 133 yards and 1 TD in Saturday's Wild Card win vs. the Seahawks. The crafty wideout also handled 3 carries for 22 yards on the ground in the contest. Samuel was seldom used in Week 18 after returning from a 3-game absence due to injury, so it's good to see his body hold up to a more significant workload. It's also worth noting that teammate WR Brandon Aiyuk is the only other 49ers' pass-catcher who logged more than 2 receptions.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) practiced fully to end the week and doesn't carry an injury tag in anticipation of Week 18 vs. the Cardinals. We'd be surprised if Samuel saw a full workload coming off a 3-week absence in the game the 49ers should control. But he's always capable of making his fantasy day with 1 big play. As such, consider the veteran a low-end WR3/flex option with some risk.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) logged limited practice on Thursday according to the official team website. Various reports indicate that Samuel logged full participation, so we're a bit hazy on the veteran's availability for Week 18 vs. the Cardinals. It's certainly looking likely that Samuel's return to NFL action is on the horizon though. We'll circle back on this tomorrow.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) practiced fully on Wednesday. It's looking good for Samuel to make his return to NFL action since getting hurt in Week 14 vs. the Buccaneers. We'll continue to monitor the veteran's status in advance of Week 18 vs. the Cardinals.

49ers Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) has been ruled out for Week 17 vs. the Raiders. HC Kyle Shanahan had hoped to get the crafty wideout back before too long, but it looks like they'll have to wait another week. This effectively ends Samuel's 2022 fantasy season unless you're a manager who plays into Week 18.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) returned to team practice in a limited fashion on Thursday. After sitting out since Week 14 vs. the Buccaneers, fantasy managers might get the dynamic wideout back for championship week. We'll keep an eye out for news tomorrow regarding Samuel's status for Week 17 vs. the Raiders.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said last week that WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) has a shot at being available for Week 17 vs. the Raiders. The team is being cautious with their star wideout as they prepare for a postseason run. It's unsurprising that Samuel opened the week without activity, but it'll be worth keeping an eye on. Check back in tomorrow for more information.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) has been ruled out for Week 16's game vs. the Commanders. Samuel wasn't expected to play on Saturday to begin with. Nothing really out of the ordinary here. Check back next week for his availability in Week 17.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) did not practice for the 2nd straight day on Wednesday. This is unsurprising given that HC Kyle Shanahan said in so many words he wasn't expecting Samuel to suit up anyway. There is a better chance for Samuel to play in Week 17. We'll keep an eye on this just in case something changes, but plan to be without Samuel on Saturday vs. the Commanders.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) did not practice on Tuesday. Samuel has not played since getting hurt vs. the Buccaneers in Week 14. "I think this week, there would be a chance if we were that desperate," said HC Kyle Shanahan. "But I'm not even looking into it this week, and we'll see how he is next Monday and make that decision." This sounds like Samuel is likely a better bet to suit up in Week 17 vs. the Raiders. Don’t plan on having the WR available for your lineup.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Seahawks. It sounds like he'll be back in either Week 17 or 18. Samuel's absence elevates Jauan Jennings to the #2 WR role and frees up targets for RB Christian McCaffrey, WR Brandon Aiyuk and TE George Kittle.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that he's been told WR Deebo Samuel (knee, ankle) is expected to be out "three-ish" weeks. Missing 3 weeks would put Samuel back for Week 18. The Score's Jordan Schultz reportedly on Monday that Samuel has a chance to return for Week 17. That seems to be the range we're looking at for Samuel's return, which means he might be back for the championship game for most fantasy leagues.

The Score's Jordan Schultz hears that 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (knee, ankle) "could return as soon as Week 17." That makes Samuel worth hanging on to in plenty of fantasy leagues, although we wouldn't consider him a must stash. Samuel would carry elevated risk in fantasy lineups if he does make it back for what's the championship game in most leagues.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel suffered an MCL sprain and an ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Bucs, the team announced on Monday. Samuel is expected to return at some point in the regular season, but we'd prepare for him to miss multiple games. We'll hopefully get a more concrete timeline for Samuel's return before you need to decide whether to release him from fantasy rosters. Jauan Jennings will take over as San Francisco's #2 WR with Samuel out but is unlikely to be a reliable fantasy play at this point in the season. RB Christian McCaffrey, WR Brandon Aiyuk and TE George Kittle are all candidates to pick up extra targets with Samuel out.
