Deebo Samuel Does Not Practice Wednesday

Wednesday, September 27, 6:07 PM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (ribs/knee) did not practice on Wednesday. The dynamic wideout suffered the rib injury during last Thursday's win over the New York Giants but the knee issue popped up on Wednesday's practice report. Samuel has a shot to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals but would need to get in a practice or two over the next several days. This is a day-to-day situation and should be monitored closely by fantasy managers. San Francisco is pretty banged up at the wide receiver position, with Jauan Jennings (shin) also missing practice on Wednesday and Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) logging a limited session.

Pat Freiermuth Scores In Week 3 Victory

Monday, September 25, 2:21 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth caught three of his four targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 23-18 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. Sunday night marked a welcome return to form for Freiermuth, who totaled just two receptions for five yards through the first two weeks of the season. With quarterback Kenny Pickett showing signs of improvement this week, Freiermuth should be trusted as a reliable fantasy option going forward. The 24-year-old will get a soft matchup against the Houston Texans in Week 4.
