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.

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.
