Week 13 Wrap: Deebo Samuel's fantasy football rant helps 49ers beat Eagles

Seven Eagles first downs outpaced six 49ers plays in the first quarter. San Francisco has the fewest first-quarter yards under Kyle Shanahan at minus-6. After an NFL-high 12 straight red-zone trips ending in touchdowns, Philadelphia led 6-0, but things changed quickly.

The 49ers outgained the Eagles 173-21 yards in the second quarter and scored six straight touchdowns in the crucial win that kept the NFC Top Seed and NFC East alive.

Deebo Samuel scored three touchdowns on seven touches (not including kickoff returns) to lead fantasy football Sunday. A touchdown and two catches followed, including one in which he broke three tackles during a 0.1% scoring opportunity.

With more possibilities currently healthy, Samuel looks like a top-15 fantasy WR despite his physical style of play making him more injury-prone.

Despite not being touched in the first quarter and facing an Eagles defense that allowed the fewest fantasy points to running backs this season, Christian McCaffrey missed being a top-five fantasy RB this week

CMC ran for 1,000 yards in a season for the first time in 49ers history, scoring 17 touchdowns with 5.5 YPC. 

Four touchdowns and 11.4 YPA from Brock Purdy were great. Sunday, he was fantasy's top QB with a 98th percentile EPA/play. Purdy's road performance answered doubts, and he may be the MVP favorite.

Brown vs Charvarius Ward was a good matchup, and Smith benefited as usual sans Dallas Goedert, catching a late TD and making a great play on a third-and-long.

STAY TURNED FOR DEVELOPMENT
