Deebo Samuel Goes Off In Rout Of Eagles

Monday, December 4, 3:05 AM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel backed up a lot of smack talk in a 43-19 victory over the Eagles in Philadelphia on Sunday. The 27-year-old had been publicly doubting the skills of the Eagles secondary in the media for months, so Sunday was a good day for a four-catch, 116-yard, two-touchdown performance. Samuel also had it going on the ground, taking three carries for 22 yards and another touchdown. His two receiving touchdowns were a season-high and he's now scored three rushing touchdowns in his last four games. Samuel is tough to predict because unlike the week-to-week matchup-based uncertainty surrounding many of the receivers near him in the rankings, Samuel's biggest obstacle to consistency is the production of his teammates. The 49ers' uber-talented pass attack will meet the bottom-10 Seattle Seahawks pass defense at Levi's Stadium in Week 14.

DeVonta Smith Scores Late Touchdown In Week 13 Loss

Sunday, December 3, 7:55 PM

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith caught nine of 11 targets for 96 yards and a touchdown during the team's 19-42 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13. The 25-year-old hauled in a two-yard touchdown late in the game to round out a solid fantasy performance. It is the second week in a row Smith has found the end zone and the third week in a row that he has gained at least 95 yards. The former Heisman winner has been peppered with targets since tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) has been out and should continue to see plenty of work even when Goedert returns to the lineup. Continue to fire up Smith as a rock-solid WR2 next week during the Eagles Monday night showdown with the Dallas Cowboys.
