San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel hauled in five of his seven targets for 87 yards and a touchdown and ran twice for seven yards in Week 2 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Samuel got the start for the second straight week over Dante Pettis and likely tightened his grip on the job. The rookie's seven targets led the team, and the 49ers made a concerted effort to get him the ball on a few occasions. His touchdown came on a goal-line corner route from two yards out. Samuel appears to be staking his claim toward being the featured receiver in this offense and figures to be one of the hotter adds off the waiver wire this week, assuming owners didn't take the plunge after Week 1.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel had a 45-yard run in a 24-15 preseason win over the Denver Broncos Monday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Samuel has been praised by Kyle Shanahan for his physical style of play, and the rookie displayed his versatility in this one. He is expected to open the year as a starter, and while the pecking order for targets in the San Francisco passing game remains to be seen, Samuel is worth a look as a WR4 or WR5 in the later rounds.

The San Diego Chargers selected Arkansas TE Hunter Henry with the No. 35 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft on Friday, April 29.
Huddle Up: The Razorbacks' standout is the near-unanimous choice as the draft's top tight end, and to the surprise of few, he was swooped up by the Bolts, who were in need the position with Ladarius Green leaving in free agency and Antonio Gates turning 36 in June.

The San Diego Chargers have announced they have fired defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell.
Huddle Up: The loss of Shawne Merriman was devastating, obviously, but the dismal performance of this unit has been a massive disappointment, especially the pass defense. Ron Rivera has been hired to coach the Charger defense the rest of the season. Maybe his presence will jump-start the San Diego D. If not, it'll still be a no-brainer to run any QBs or receivers on your team who plays San Diego.

Huddle Up: Fantasy Impact: San Diego was focused on targeting the cornerback and running back position to solidify with their draft picks. The team traded up to select RB Jacob Hester in the 3rd round followed by selecting Marcus Thomas in the 5th round. Since Michael Turner has departed to the Atlanta Falcons, that only leaves diminutive RB Darren Sproles to spell L.T. in the Charger offense. Hester could surprise and win the backup running back role behind Tomlinson making him a very valuable fantasy player in the future.
