The San Francisco 49ers will hit the road for their Wild Card round matchup at the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in a battle of two classic NFC playoff rivals.

Niners wide receiver has been a game breaker on multiple fronts all season long and we’ll look into his viability as an option for DraftKings Daily Fantasy lineups this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers WR Deebo Samuel ($8,100)

Samuel clocks in as the second-highest priced receiver for Wild Card weekend and with good receiver. His prowess as both a pass-catcher and a running option down the stretch has made him one of the NFL’s most dangerous weapons.

For DFS users, he has averaged 22.2 fantasy points per game, topping 30+ points four times this season.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Drafting Samuel in your lineup will cost you a pretty penny but he’s a worthy investment considering how important he is to the 49ers’ offense. Start him.
