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.

October 18, 2019
Samuel (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
ANALYSIS
Samuel will be idle for the first time this season after his groin injury prevented him from practicing in any fashion Wednesday through Friday. His absence may result in Jordan Matthews dressing for the first time as a 49er, though Kendrick Bourne seems to be the most likely candidate to see more regular work in three-receiver formations alongside Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis.
