Deebo Samuel Inefficient, Hobbled In Super Bowl Loss

Monday, February 12, 2:24 AM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) had a frustrating Sunday night in the team's 25-22 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII. The former second-rounder fell to the turf, grabbing his leg in the third quarter but returned shortly after. While 49er fans and fantasy managers could breathe a sigh of relief when he returned, Samuel wasn't able to do much damage after -- or for that matter, before -- the injury. He finished the game with three catches on a game-high 11 targets for just 33 yards. San Francisco also attempted to get Samuel involved in the running game, giving him three carries which turned into just eight yards. He'll most likely be taken near the WR1/WR2 border when fantasy drafts happen in the fall.

Jerry Jeudy Saves His Best For Last

Monday, January 8, 12:03 AM

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy had his best game of the year in a meaningless 27-14 Week 18 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. Although Jeudy only hauled in three of his six targets on the day, he went for 79 yards and caught just his second touchdown of the year on a 24-yard strike from quarterback Jarrett Stidham. Jeudy's six targets were second to only running back Javonte Williams' nine, and Jeudy surprisingly was very productive despite Courtland Sutton returning from a concussion to close out the year. Overall, it was a disappointing year for the former first-rounder, finishing with 54 catches on 86 targets for 758 yards in 16 games. With the Broncos expected to transition away from quarterback Russell Wilson this offseason, Jeudy's best path to more fantasy intrigue in 2024 could be a trade out of Denver.
