San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his performance in Week 13's win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Samuel had 138 scrimmage yards (116 receiving, 22 rushing) and three touchdowns (two receiving, one rushing) in the 49ers' 42-19 victory at Lincoln Financial Field.

"Deebo is one of the best football players I've ever seen," linebacker Fred Warner said after the game. "Performances like that don't surprise me. It's only a matter of time when he does kind of pop off like that. And people were saying things about things that he may have said before the game, but I think it's safe to say his actions spoke louder than his words."

Samuel is the fourth wide receiver since 2000 with at least 100 receiving yards, two touchdown receptions, and one rushing touchdown in a game, joining Chase Claypool (October 11, 2020), David Patten (October 21, 2001), and Javon Walker (November 5, 2006).

Quarterback Brock Purdy noted that Samuel practices hard consistently, adding, "But going into this game, yeah, he had a little something, little history with obviously the way things went down last year in the playoff game. And he's definitely looked forward to this game coming back into this place. So he was pumped about it and stoked and ready to go. And man, all I had to do is give him the ball and some space and he made the rest happen."

This is Samuel's third Offensive Player of the Week award, with the others coming in Weeks 8 and 10 of the 2021 season. He is the second 49ers wide receiver to earn the award at least three times, joining Jerry Rice, who earned it 12 times. Samuel is the second former South Carolina wide receiver to earn the honor three times, joining Sterling Sharpe.

It's been a quiet couple of weeks for the San Francisco 49ers. Other than firing defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, and that little Super Bowl thing, there hasn't been much going on. But this week kicks off the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and free agency is only a couple of weeks away. So things will soon pick up. GM John Lynch spoke with reporters at the Combine on Tuesday. And while he didn't give a lot of new information, there were still some highlights to discuss. So we opened up the 49ers Webzone Mailbag to see what questions you had about the team. Let's jump in and take a look. Who are you hoping for (as defensive coordinator)? - Brian J.

However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
