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 "most likely" has a high-ankle sprain, HC Kyle Shanahan said after Sunday's win over the Bucs. X-rays on Samuel's ankle came back clean, but a high-ankle sprain could cost him the rest of the fantasy season. We should learn more about Samuel's status on Monday.

The Score's Jordan Schultz hears that "early indications" are that 49ers WR Deebo Samuel's ankle injury is not serious.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo does not have a Lisfranc injury and won't need surgery, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Garoppolo could be back in 7-8 weeks, "if rehab goes smoothly," Schefter adds. Seven weeks would put Garoppolo back on the field for the Divisional Round of the playoffs. We'll keep an eye on his progress. Garoppolo is still a guy to avoid in playoff fantasy contests, but this news helps the outlooks on San Francisco's skill-position players.
