Player Outlook

After an exciting 2019 (15.5 PPR points per game in his final eight), Deebo Samuel played at less than full health over seven games in 2020 (10.9 PPR points per game). Worse yet, Samuel was exposed as a short-area target, complete with a paltry 2.2 average depth of target and 5.4 average throw depth. No wonder he caught 75% of his targets. Sharing the field with George Kittle and Brandon Aiyuk further dilutes his potential, and an expected quarterback change to rookie Trey Lance could sting. Third in the receiving pecking order and void of deep-ball opportunities paints a rather sad picture for Samuel's outlook. If you think he can rebound to his late-2019 form, then a selection before 100th overall is in order. If you don't think he's up to it, then chances are someone else will take him before you'd be tempted to.

Player News
  • Samuel has been working out in Southern California with rookie quarterback Trey Lance since the 49ers' offseason program concluded earlier this month, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Samuel seems to be enjoying a healthy offseason, unlike last summer when he suffered a Jones fracture in mid-June. He missed the first three weeks of the regular season, then later missed six more games while dealing with hamstring injuries and a stint on the COVID-19 list. In the seven games he played, Samuel averaged 4.7 receptions for 55.9 yards and 1.1 carries for 3.7 yards, with his average of 12.1 yards after catch per reception leading all qualified pass catchers. He largely made his living on quick passes and pseudo-handoffs, but there is some hope to add more intermediate or even deep work, especially if Lance ends up being a better downfield passer than incumbent Jimmy Garoppolo. The 49ers seemingly intend to start the veteran Week 1, though the outlook could change in a hurry if Lance is impressive at training camp.

  • Head coach Kyle Shanahan reaffirmed Tuesday that Samuel (hamstring) won't play in either of the 49ers' final two games of the season, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Just over a week ago, Shanahan said Samuel would be shut down for the regular season, but the coach left the door open for the wideout to return to action during a potential postseason run. However, after the 49ers were officially eliminated from playoff contention following Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Samuel will now have to wait until 2021 to see his next competitive action. The second-year player only suited up in seven games for the 49ers this season, but he was productive during his time on the field with 33 receptions for 391 yards and a touchdown to go with 26 more yards on the ground.

  • Coach Kyle Shanahan indicated Monday that a hamstring strain will keep Samuel out for the rest of the regular season, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. In Samuel's looming absence, added opportunities in the 49ers offense will be available down the stretch for Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne and Richie James.

  • Samuel (hamstring) will get an MRI on Monday on the injury he suffered Sunday against Washington, and there are fears that the injury could be season-ending, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports reports. Coach Kyle Shanahan called the injury significant in the post-game press conference, and Samuel has already missed time due to a hamstring injury this season. The 49ers have been decimated by injuries all season, as Samuel could soon join Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) and George Kittle (foot), among others, on IR.

  • Samuel (hamstring) won't return to Sunday's game versus Washington, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Samuel injured his hamstring on the first play from scrimmage, a nine-yard run by the second-year wide receiver. With the decision made to keep Samuel out for the rest of the contest, the 49ers are down to Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne, Richie James and River Cracraft as healthy options at wide receiver.
