Scores first 2020 touchdown Samuel hauled in all six of his targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Rams.
Impact After starting the year on injured reserve and getting eased back into action, Samuel finally posted a line his fantasy managers were hoping for when they drafted him this season. The 24-year-old put his athleticism on display, starting three of his receptions well behind the line of scrimmage and turning them into big gains (one of which resulted in a score). Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) -- who also dealt with an injury early in the season -- looked like his former healthy self as well, which bodes well for this QB-WR tandem going forward. Now that we have seen him without restrictions, Samuel should rank high enough to warrant starting in most formats when the 49ers take on the Patriots in Week 7.
