49ers' Deebo Samuel: Breaks records in Super Bowl LIV
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel hauled in five of nine targets for 39 yards and carried the ball three times for 53 yards during Sunday's 31-20 Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs.

Not only did Samuel set a new record for rushing yards by a wide receiver in Super Bowl history, but his 32-yard scamper during the 49ers' opening drive was also the single longest run by a wideout on the big stage. The versatile rookie's strong Super Bowl performance is a small consolation for the 49ers following the loss, but combined with his impressive regular season (961 combined yards and six touchdowns over a full 16-game stretch), there's plenty of reason to be optimistic about the dynamic receiver's future fantasy prospects. With Emmanuel Sanders set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, there's a realistic path for Samuel to emerge as San Francisco's No. 1 receiver as early as 2020.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Totals 89 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel caught two passes (three targets) for 46 yards and rushed twice for 43 yards in Sunday's NFC Championship Game victory over Green Bay.

Samuel's two-catch performance led all San Francisco receivers in a game where the team threw the ball just eight times. The dynamic rookie was able to bolster his final stat line with a couple of big end around rushes as he has done at times this season. The 49ers may be forced to actually pass the ball with regularity if the Chiefs' aerial attack is able to put up some early points in the Super Bowl, which could make Samuel a nice value play after modest receiving outputs in the team's first two playoff wins.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Huge game to finish regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel corralled all five targets for 102 yards while rushing twice for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-21 win over Seattle.

Samuel made some big plays through the air, but he was able to find the end zone when he deployed a nifty spin move on a 30-yard end around in the first quarter. This was a signature game for the second-round rookie, as he flashed his ability as a wideout with his third 100-yard receiving game while also putting his versatility as a rushing threat on display. Samuel finishes his first pro season with 961 combined yards and six touchdowns over a full 16 games, surpassing receivers with more experience on the depth chart to finish second behind Emmanuel Sanders. The dynamic wideout figures to maintain that role through the playoffs, but he could elevate to the 49ers' top wide receiver option with Sanders set for unrestricted free agency this upcoming offseason.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Cleared for SNF in Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Seattle, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

It's not entirely clear if Samuel is battling the same shoulder injury that bothered him throughout November, but he looks like he'll be good to go for the battle for the NFC West crown, despite being limited to non-contact work in practice throughout the week, per Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News. The rookie caught eight of 11 targets for 112 yards in his previous matchup with the Seahawks in Week 10, benefiting from extra volume after Emmanuel Sanders suffered a rib injury.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Samuel maintained his listing from Wednesday's estimated injury report as he deals with an undisclosed shoulder issue, which has forced him to wear a blue no-contact jersey on the practice field, per Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Friday's report may give the final word on Samuel's availability for Sunday's contest at Seattle.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report with a shoulder injury, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Samuel was spotted wearing a non-contact jersey during Tuesday's unofficial practice, which effectively represented the team's first session of the week with players having Christmas Day off. The wideout will have two more practices this week to upgrade his activity level, with a final word on his outlook for Sunday's game in Seattle coming at the conclusion of Friday's session.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Dons non-contact jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (undisclosed) wore a blue no-contact jersey during Tuesday's unofficial practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Samuel has dealt with the occasional injury this season, missing one game (Week 7) along the way, so the 49ers may merely be exercising caution with the rookie wide receiver on the doorstep of the playoffs. Wednesday's practice report will provide the first glimpse into his on-field activity for the regular-season finale.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Garners 59 total yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel secured four of six targets for 31 yards and rushed three times for 28 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' 34-31 win over the Rams on Saturday.

Samuel's work in the passing game was modest overall, although he checked in second in both receptions and targets for the 49ers on the night. However, the rookie made his biggest impact on the ground, scoring his second rushing touchdown of the season on a 19-yard run early in the second quarter. Samuel's production through the air has been somewhat volatile following a pair of 100-yard efforts in Weeks 10 and 11, but he'll have an opportunity to face off with one of the teams he eclipsed the century mark against, the Seahawks, in a Week 17 NFC West showdown.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Just two touches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel had one catch (three targets) for 29 yards and one carry for eight yards in Sunday's 29-22 loss to the Falcons.

George Kittle (13 receptions for 134 yards) ate up nearly all of Jimmy Garoppolo's targets, leaving scraps for the wideout corps. While Samuel recorded just two touches, he was able to break off the biggest gain of any wideout on his 29-yard catch and run. The rookie reached 100 total yards in three of his five previous contests, so look for him to get more involved against a Rams team that can be beat through the air Saturday.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Uses legs to eclipse century mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel had five catches (eight targets) for 76 yards and rushed for 33 yards on two carries in Sunday's 48-46 win over New Orleans.

Samuel's line will understandably be dwarfed by Emmanuel Sanders' monstrous fantasy line -- seven catches, 157 yards, a receiving touchdown and a passing touchdown -- but the former's output is certainly worth paying attention to. The rookie has quietly put up five consecutive double-digit fantasy point performances as he continues to gain Jimmy Garoppolo's trust in a starting role. The Falcons rank in the bottom-third of the league in pass defense, and they have enough firepower on offense to potentially force the 49ers to feature a more pass-happy game plan, making Samuel viable in most formats for Week 15.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Building TD streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel caught two of four targets for 41 yards and a touchdown while adding a 20-yard rush in Sunday's 20-17 loss to Baltimore.

Samuel showed off his ball skills on his touchdown catch, snagging it in between two defenders for a 33-yard score on San Francisco's opening drive. The Ravens were able to contain him after that, but the rookie wide receiver now has touchdowns in consecutive games after finding the end zone only once in his first nine appearances. Maintaining that momentum won't be easy, with a Week 14 trip to New Orleans on tap for the 49ers.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Samuel had no problem playing through the same injury last week, catching both of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in a 37-8 win over the Packers. A matchup with Baltimore's first-rate secondary appears tricky, but the bright side is that it should encourage more passing volume for Jimmy Garoppolo, who attempted just 20 passes in last week's blowout.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Still limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) remained limited at practice Thursday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

As did Emmanuel Sanders (ribs), but Maiocco suggests that both receivers "appear to be on pace" to play Sunday against the Ravens. We'll circle back on their statuses Friday to see if either (or both) head into the weekend listed as questionable, or minus a Week 13 injury designation.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Samuel practiced in a limited capacity twice leading up to the Week 12 win over the Packers, playing through his shoulder injury en route to finishing with two catches for 50 yards and a touchdown. The rookie second-round pick has turned in an impressive three-game stretch, notching 18 catches for 296 yards and a touchdown over that span. He has a tough matchup on deck this week, taking on a Ravens squad that boasts a formidable secondary.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Scores with limited touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) caught both of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-8 win over Green Bay.

Samuel was able to suit up and start alongside Emmanuel Sanders (ribs), but it was the former banged-up wideout who was able to make the bigger fantasy impact. The true receiving star of the night was tight end George Kittle (ankle), who put up a monstrous stat line while returning from an injury of his own. So long as Kittle is on the field, the rest of the receiving corps will play second fiddle to the tight end in terms of attention from Jimmy Garoppolo. Samuel has certainly put himself into consideration for more looks after an impressive two-week run (16 receptions for 246 yards) where he took over as the team's top wideout, but he may be tough to trust as a surefire starter next week against the Ravens if the receiving unit is at full strength.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday versus the Packers.

Samuel didn't take contact during his two limited practices this week, but his shoulder injury isn't severe enough to keep him sidelined from actual games. With Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) available as well, the 49ers have the usual suspects operating at wide receiver, which could be a fruitful endeavor with George Kittle (knee/ankle) back in action but potentially limited. In the two contests that Kittle missed, Samuel erupted for 100 yards both times en route to a combined line of 16-246-0 on 21 targets.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Expected to suit up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday night against the Packers, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Samuel returned to last week's 36-26 win over the Cardinals after he suffered the shoulder injury, finishing with eight catches for 134 yards on 78 percent of the offensive snaps. He was held out of practice Wednesday before returning as a limited participant Thursday and Friday, ultimately listed as questionable on the final injury report. Coach Kyle Shanahan said he views Samuel, Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and George Kittle (knee/ankle) as game-time decisions, but there seems to be a consensus among San Francisco beat writers that all three players are on track to suit up. The 49ers will release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Questionable to face Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

All eyes will be on the 49ers' inactive list Sunday evening, with Samuel, Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and George Kittle (knee/ankle) considered game-time decisions ahead of the 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. It's a good sign for the Niners that all three players were able to practice in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday, potentially setting up a situation where Jimmy Garoppolo has all his key pass catchers available. However, coach Kyle Shanahan hasn't been willing to provide much insight, so it's best to view the entire group as truly questionable. Samuel, Sanders and Kittle all wore no-contact jerseys at Friday's practice.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: LP on Thursday's injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

After picking up a shoulder injury this past Sunday versus the Cardinals, Samuel was a DNP on Wednesday before sporting a blue non-contact jersey Thursday, according to Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News. Samuel has kept the door open for an appearance Sunday against the Packers but will help his cause by increasing his activity level by week's end.
