Deebo Samuel Fantasy Football News 2021

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan announced Tuesday that WR Deebo Samuel will miss the rest of the season with his hamstring injury. That clears the way for Brandon Aiyuk to remain the #1 WR over the next 2 weeks, with Kendrick Bourne and Richie James as #2 and #3.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. That leaves Brandon Aiyuk as the #1 WR and a strong target bet. Kendrick Bourne figures to operate as the #2 WR but would be a desperation fantasy play.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that WR Deebo Samuel will be out "a while" with his latest hamstring injury. With just 2 weeks left in most fantasy seasons, he can be dropped from rosters. WR Brandon Aiyuk is set up to dominate targets the rest of the way. In 4 games without Samuel and TE George Kittle (including last week when Samuel played 1 snap), Aiyuk has caught 24 of 41 targets.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan admitted after Sunday's loss to Washington that WR Deebo Samuel's hamstring injury "didn't look good." ESPN's Nick Wagoner tweeted that there's a "real chance" Samuel misses the rest of the season -- although that seems more like speculation than a report. We should get an update on Samuel's status tomorrow. WR Brandon Aiyuk dominated targets in his absence vs. Washington, turning 16 targets into 10 catches for 119 yards.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel injured his hamstring on the 1st drive of Sunday's game against Washington. He's officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for updates.

49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (COVID) is out for today’s game against the Rams. Deebo Samuel, Richie James and Kendrick Bourne should operate as San Francisco’s top 3 WRs.

Updating a previous report, 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) has been cleared and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Rams, likely joining Richie James and Kendrick Bourne as San Francisco's top 3 WRs.

Niners WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Samuel has been out since Week 7 with a hamstring injury and will face a tough defense even if active. Try to avoid Samuel in your fantasy football lineup even if he's active. We'll update his status Sunday afternoon.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's a bit disappointing that he's still not back to 100% coming off the bye, but Samuel at least has a shot to play against the Rams this weekend. We'll see what he's able to do the next 2 days.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) remains out for Sunday’s game against the Saints. WR Kendrick Bourne is expected to be activated from the COVID list in time to play and figures to join Brandon Aiyuk in the starting lineup. We’ll see how big a role WR Richie James plays after his breakout Week 9.

49ers WR Kendrick Bourne has returned 2 consecutive negative COVID tests, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Bourne, Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel and Trent Williams can re-join the team immediately. It's a tough break that all 4 guys were forced to miss Thursday night's loss to the Packers, but they'll be eligible to play Week 10.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) is out for Week 8. That leaves Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne as San Francisco’s top 2 WRs vs. Seattle’s league-worst WR defense.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) won't play against the Seahawks this weekend and will "probably" miss the following Thursday night's game vs. the Packers. It's worth noting that San Francisco has a Week 11 bye, so it's possible Samuel is held out of Week 10, too. His absence will leave rookie Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne as the 49ers' top 2 WRs. That's especially important with Seattle's league-worst WR defense on tap.

Niners WR Deebo Samuel left Sunday's game at New England with a hamstring injury and did not return. We'll watch for updates on his status heading into Week 8.

Update: It's a hamstring strain, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury. The team expects Samuel to miss at least Week 8 against Seattle. We'll see beyond that.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (illness) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. We’re expecting him to play more than the 34% of snaps he did last week, although he still might not be ready for a full workload. Consider Samuel a WR3 in today’s plus matchup.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) and WR Deebo Samuel (illness) are expected to play against the Dolphins today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Mostert has been sidelined since Week 2 and was limited in practice all week, so it's unclear how big a role he's ready for. Samuel played just 34% of San Francisco's offensive snaps in his 2020 debut last week. He should be ready for more this afternoon -- although missing practice on Thursday and Friday with that illness might impact that plan.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins after missing practice on Thursday and Friday with a non-COVID illness. Guys almost always play through this stuff, but we’ll look for an update on Samuel on Sunday morning.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) will return for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Garoppolo is a significant upgrade for San Francisco's pass-catchers and is a high-upside QB2 in this matchup. The 'Niners are implied for 29.25 points -- 6th highest on the week.
