WR: Deebo Samuel, San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers are seeking revenge after they got the short end of the stick in last season’s postseason meeting while the Eagles are looking to reassert their dominance atop the NFC, setting up for an exciting game from both a fantasy and real-life perspective.
Per Yahoo Fantasy’s social media account on X (also known as Twitter), the Eagles have allowed the most fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season. They also rank 29th in the NFL in opponent passing yards per game (255.7).
Samuel has also been more involved in the highly coveted “wide back” role, earning multiple rush attempts in five of his past six games. In a highly-anticipated game between two of the best teams in the NFL, expect stars like Samuel to step up when their team needs it most with huge performances.
