Deebo Samuel With Strong Upside in Week 3

Thursday, September 21, 12:44 AM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel enters his team's Thursday night home opener against the New York Giants with momentum. In Week 2 Samuel caught six-of-nine targets for 63 yards and added five carries for 38 yards and his first touchdown of the year. The Giants' defense have held their own against wide receivers in 2023, ranking ninth in the NFL in yards per game against receivers. However, they're tied for second-worst against the run so Samuel could contribute similarly on the ground this week. In addition, fellow receiver Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) is a game-time decision and Samuel may be targeted more often if Aiyuk is ruled out. Consider him a WR2 this week with distinct WR1 upside.

Jerry Jeudy Doesn't Do Much In Season Debut

Monday, September 18, 12:53 AM

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy made his 2023 season debut for the Broncos in Week 2 against the visiting Washington Commanders after being held out of the season opener due to a hamstring injury. In his return, Jeudy was very quiet, catching just three of five targets for 25 yards. Rookie Marvin Mims Jr. and Brandon Johnson combined for four catches, 179 yards and three touchdowns out of nowhere with quarterback Russell Wilson cooking on a losing effort. Fantasy managers couldn't have been too stoked about this outing, but the silver lining is that Jeudy was still second on the team in targets with five, two behind leader Courtland Sutton. As the 24-year-old former first-rounder moves further away from his hammy injury, his production and time on the field should only increase.
