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.

Huge game to finish regular season
WRSan Francisco 49ers
December 29, 2019
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
