Instant Fantasy Analysis - WR Deebo Samuel, 49ers

Recommended Posts

Deebo Samuel Write-Up

Although he wasn't my highest-ranked receiver, Samuel may be my favorite in this draft class. He offers surprising speed (4.48) for a receiver who plays so much like a running back with the ball in his hands. Pro Football Focus charted Samuel with 21 broken tackles on his 62 catches, further proving he is a handful for defenders. In his last meaningful college game, he was arguably the best player on the field against eventual national champion Clemson, finishing with 10 catches for 210 yards and three touchdowns. In San Francisco, Samuel becomes the instant favorite to assume slot duties while presumed No. 1 receiver spends more time on the outside. Samuel is talented enough to eventually overtake Pettis as Jimmy Garoppolo's favorite wideout, but even if that doesn't happen, he projects as a long-term tag-team partner for last year's second-round pick. Owners probably need to value him as a WR5 for redraft purposes, although a strong training camp/preseason might bump him up a bit from that.

Pettis wasn’t Jimmy g favorite target last season, the production Pettis had was after Jimmy was out for the season.  

Samuel will be  easly Jimmy G favorite target.

I don't think it's quite that easy. SF loves Pettis now and plans on featuring him, much like it did Goodwin last season. Pettis is better than Goodwin and a pretty good route-runner. I think Samuel can overtake him, but I don't think it's a given.

If Jimmy G stays healthy I think he'll lime the duo of Pettis & Samuel. I still think Kittle will be the top producer. At the end of the year I think Samuel will represent himself well with a pretty decent rookie year. So I don't think it's out of the question for him to post 600-800 yds with 6-7 tds.

I love this landing spot for him. 

After Jacobs of the Raiders I think it’s the next best.

Samuel will be a good player.  Very safe pick with some upside.  Return ability as well.  

He was my 2nd or 3rd WR along with AJ Brown.

Brown landing in a tough spot.  

Titans lack a passing game, and he will fight for targets with the likes of Davis, Walkeramd if not Walker, J Smith at te, D Lewis and Humphries the ex Bucs.  

I simply like Samules situation a lot better.

Generally my views are in the football sense.  Not fantasy.  I know its a fantasy board.  Im not ranking them fantasy wise.  

They were simply 2nd and 3rd on my board behind Hollywood going onto the draft.

Yes AJ Browns situation sucks.  Maybe they can land a good QB if they move on from Mariota.

Wait.  You create a draft board as if you're a GM or something?
