San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel registered nine receptions for a career-high 189 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions on 12 targets.
Huddle Up: Samuel's previous best was 134 receiving yards in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals during the 2019 season. He certainly stepped up with Brandon Aiyuk inactive, and looked like a solid low-end WR2 or flex fantasy option. The 49ers travel to meet the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2.

San Francisco WR Deebo Samuel's 'contact balance' makes him to tough bring down, according to OT Trent Williams, and CB Richard Sherman compared Samuel's ability to run through tackles to that of retired RB Marshawn Lynch.
Huddle Up: Samuel has been a monster after the catch since entering the league, and while he battled injuries in his sophomore season, he has proven to be a versatile playmaker when healthy. Consider him a WR3 with WR2 upside heading into 2021.

Huddle Up: Kendrick Bourne likely will be the top receiver for the 49ers this week with Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk unavailable. He will be facing a good Seattle Seahawks defense but can still be a flex option in some leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
