Originally listed as ‘day-to-day’ following the 49ers Week 6 loss to the Browns, this one came clear out of left field - much to the chagrin of Samuel’s fantasy managers. The 49ers have their bye in Week 9, so it’s pretty safe to assume that he’ll be taking a trip to the closest thing to IR without being actually placed on IR. Fantasy managers should look to hold him while he recovers from the injury, as selling him will be difficult to nearly impossible after three straight duds in the game log. Brandon Aiyuk will likely take even more command of a target share he’s already dominating, while George Kittle will receive a slight boost while Samuel is out. Samuel has struggled to come close to reproducing the success he had in 2021, dealing with injuries on a crowded offense over the past season and a half.
