Summary

Samuel is now the 49ers' nominal No. 1 wideout, though he doesn't fit that role at first glance. Athletic and versatile, and built like a running back, Samuel got most of his late-season usage on manufactured plays across the field. But for all his speed, he's not known as a downfield dominator. Samuel will make his living with creative touches and open-field dynamism, but won't simply absorb the Emmanuel Sanders role from last year. In other words, he looks like a volatile PPR target who may struggle to top 60-65 receptions. The ace up his sleeve is the running game: Samuel added 28 yards a game on the ground, with 2 touchdowns, from Week 13 through the Super Bowl. Tacking on 2-8 points every week is a huge deal, and it boosts Samuel into the WR2 class. (May 3)
