NEWS: According to reports, Deebo Samuel (hamstring) is likely out a while. Assume he will not be back this season.
FANTASY TAKE: Brandon Aiyuk is the WR1 in San Francisco, not Deebo. I still believe Deebo can be a good football player for the 49ers, but Aiyuk has taken full control of the top spot in SF. Not to mention Deebo can’t stay healthy.
Let’s talk 2021 and Dynasty: I’m not sure Deebo will ever regain even high-end WR3 upside in fantasy, but if healthy, he should be near WR3/4-type material. Aiyuk, on the other hand, has top 10-15 overall fantasy football ceiling value. Comment below with where you rank Aiyuk in both 2021 redraft and 2021 dynasty.
