Enjoy all we have to offer in the upcoming months and thanks to all of you for making DLF the world’s number one dynasty fantasy football site.
Missing almost two whole years of his college career because of injury; a lot of Deebo Samuel‘s dynasty value rides on draft position and landing spot. If teams are able to see enough in his tape from his second and final season to give him an opportunity, he has some potential. Will they? It’s more than possible given his versatility. He was the lead receiver for both of his healthy years, showed up in the rushing game, and performed on special teams.
There’s a lot for an NFL team to like. But he’s also in a deep class, at a deep position.
As a Recruit
Coming out of Chapman high school, Tyshun “Deebo” Samuel was a three-star prospect with a 0.85 (rounded) composite score according to 247sports.com. That ranks him 838th as a national prospect. He finished with 2,751 receiving yards and 36 receiving touchdowns as well as 133 carries for 898 yards and 13 more touchdowns. It was enough for him to be awarded the High School Sports Report Class AA Offensive Player of the Year award in his senior season.
After high school, he committed to – and played all four years with – the University of South Carolina. Born on January 15, 1996, he was a 19-year-old freshman in 2015 (on August 1).
