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.

Uses legs to eclipse century mark

December 9, 2019
Samuel had five catches (eight targets) for 76 yards and rushed for 33 yards on two carries in Sunday's 48-46 win over New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
Samuel's line will understandably be dwarfed by Emmanuel Sanders' monstrous fantasy line -- seven catches, 157 yards, a receiving touchdown and a passing touchdown -- but the former's output is certainly worth paying attention to. The rookie has quietly put up five consecutive double-digit fantasy point performances as he continues to gain Jimmy Garoppolo's trust in a starting role. The Falcons rank in the bottom-third of the league in pass defense, and they have enough firepower on offense to potentially force the 49ers to feature a more pass-happy game plan, making Samuel viable in most formats for Week 15.
