San Francisco 49ers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 36th overall pick in this year's draft, Samuel could start opposite Dante Pettis out of the gate in what should be a productive Kyle Shanahan offense with a healthy Jimmy Garoppolo. At 5-11, 214, Samuel is stout, strong and plenty athletic with a 4.48 40 and 39-inch vertical. He's a strong route runner and dangerous in the open field after the catch, but he never reached 900 receiving yards in four seasons at South Carolina, limited by a mixture of injuries and poor quarterback play. Samuel is also on the old side for a rookie after turning 23 in January, so his physical development has likely maxed out already. He'll have to displace deep threat Marquise Goodwin, who's probably better suited to a situational role, among others, but Samuel's odds are good given his physical tools and draft slot.

Building TD streak
WRSan Francisco 49ers
December 1, 2019
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
