49ers WR Deebo Samuel named NFC Offensive Player of the Week again

Nov 17, 2021 at 6:08 AM--


San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his performance in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers beat the Rams 31-10 at Levi's Stadium.

Samuel totaled five receptions and 133 scrimmage yards (97 receiving, career-high 36 rushing) with two touchdowns (one receiving, one rushing) against the Rams. It was his first career game with both a receiving and rushing touchdown.

This is the second Offensive Player of the Week award for Samuel, with the first coming in Week 8 of this season. He joins Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (1990, 1992 and 1994) as the only 49ers wide receivers to earn the award multiple times in a single season.

Samuel is the first 49ers player to win two Offensive Player of the Week awards in the same season since running back Frank Gore did so in 2009 (Weeks 2 and 14).

Samuel joins Pro Football Hall of Famer Sterling Sharpe (three-time winner) as the only former South Carolina players to earn multiple Offensive Player of the Week awards and is the first to win the award twice in one season.

The 49ers wideout is one of three players to win multiple Offensive Player of the Week awards this season, joining Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford and Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

49ers' Trent Williams and Deebo Samuel named to 2021 NFL All-Pro Team

Two San Francisco 49ers players were named to their first NFL All-Pro team. One is third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel, one of the most dynamic players in the game. The second is the team's nine-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Trent Williams. Both were first-team selections. Until now, Williams, a first-round draft pick in 2010, has gone his entire career without being named to an All-Pro team, which may be difficult to believe. On Thursday, a reporter asked the veteran tackle what it would mean to finally be named an All-Pro. "I think it would feel good, finally," Williams responded. "It sucks because I can't let it define my career because I've never made it. If I felt like that's what I needed to define my career, then anything I've done up to



Deebo Samuel doesn't even know how to define his role in 49ers' offense

49ers' wide receiver Deebo Samuel was named an AP 1st Team All-Pro for the first time in his young career on Friday. He is the first 49ers wide receiver to earn that honor since Terrell Owens earned his third nod back in 2002. There is no doubt that Deebo deserved the honor as he posted eye-popping stats during his 2021 campaign: 1st in yards per reception (18.2) 3rd in yards from scrimmage (1770) 5th in receiving yards (1405) 3rd amongst wide receivers in total touchdowns (14) Set an NFL record for rushing touchdowns by a receiver (8) It's hard to argue that Deebo wasn't the most valuable player on the 49ers' offense this season, and his versatility is largely the reason why. Not only was he the team's number one receiving

The San Francisco 49ers are just hours away from kicking off against the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Wild Card round of the playoffs. One player everyone is excited to see is the dynamic Deebo Samuel. He is labeled as a wide receiver. However, the 49ers have utilized him as so much more this season. Samuel racked up 77 receptions for 1,405 yards and six receiving touchdowns this season, all career-highs. He also had 59 carries for 365 yards and a team-leading eight rushing touchdowns. Samuel even threw a touchdown pass in the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. He can do it all. This week, Samuel was asked how he would respond to someone who did not know him asking what position he



Watch Deebo Samuel's amazing TD run, extending 49ers lead over Cowboys

Deebo Samuel called himself a "wide back" this past week. That's because he's a wide receiver that can play running back and do it well. The Dallas Cowboys are experiencing this first hand in the NFC Wild Card playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. With his 49ers holding onto a 16-7 lead in the third quarter, cornerback K'Waun Williams picked off Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, getting the football back for the offense. On the next play, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo handed the football off to Samuel, who made some magic happen and ended up in the end zone for a 26-yard
