Coming off a dizzying breakout season (1,780 scrimmage yards and 14 touchdowns), Samuel looks poised to return as the 49ers' best and most dynamic weapon. That's high praise, considering he shares a field with George Kittle, but Samuel's game-breaking skillset is just that impressive. Samuel isn't a conventional No. 1 wideout, spending as much time running gadget and option-type plays as winning down the field. But he's developed more and more in his routes, and his ability to dominate on all levels of the field makes him a major fantasy x-factor. There's no question his 2021 brilliance warrants a WR1 selection within the first two rounds, but drafters will need to weigh their expectations of his running-game usage in 2022. It's unlikely he'll see another 59 carries (or score 8 more touchdowns on the ground), so Samuel's volume and downfield production will need to keep soaring upward to hold that value.
